Typically, no heating of food, indicates a bad Magnetron (tube) or associated components. Yes, it can be repaired. Magnetrons are not hard to replace and can be ordered online through MCM electronics. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good Luck,

- Jim

Typically, you have the first 30 days to exchange a new purchase. I would pursue that avenue. If you bought it online, it's probably freight related. Try to file a claim..

Microwave won't heat food


9 out of 10 times if all else is working then it is the magnatron rod that does the heating chances are it will be more expensive than to purchase a new microwave.

MY MICROWAVE IS NOT HEATING


If the microwave is turned on and you can hear the fan working when you set the time you should make sure of those things:1. You have selected the proper programme. Some microwaves have a control desiged to use the programs on the buttons. if you want to you the buttons to set time you should select "microwave" or a similar button and then press the power level like "1", "2" or "80", "100" (being percentage) and then press the buttons for timing.2. If you have used it for a while and it suddenly stopped heating the food, than it could be that your magnetron (a spare part) has burned out. Have a specialist replace it, or just get a new microwave, the price difference won't be that great for standard issue microwaves.

I have a GE Profile Spacemaker 2.0, MOD Number: JVM2070SK02 Last week the thing stopped heating anything. Sounds fine, but won't heat. Any tips?


okay thats sounds like you have to take your microwave to a repair man.the HV capacitor can be open or the magnetron is bad these 2 components i mention are responsible for the heating of your microwave if they go bad..then your microwave wont heat.good luck.

Turns on by itself and turntable does not rotate


You may have a control board issue. Thank God for safety switches.
This is a problem that an integrated circuit tech. can repair, but it may be costly.
Decide how much you want to put into this oven vs. buying a new one.

Contact me once you decide and I can help you find a service center.

Thank you,

GE SpaceMaker Microwave suddenly stops while heating


I had same problem last week. My GE JVM1650 Spacemaker stopped after a few seconds of heating. Owned 16 months, manufactured Jan 2005. It was the magnetron, which was replaced yesterday. The magnetron has a 10-year warranty, but I had to pay $161.00 for labor by a GE technician. The call-out fee was waived at my request. I don't know what that amount would have been, but I can't believe the $161.00 for what was about 1/2 hour labor once diagnosed. Good Luck!
