Question about GE JVM1490 Convection/Microwave Oven

Sometimes the high voltage capacitor may be at fault
Posted on May 12, 2008
I have a Frigidaire microwave oven.... as it was heating food it just died, minutes later the power was back on by itself. I reset the clock and date,all seemed fine till I tried heating-up food.
It does not heat-up. The microwave is 5 yrs. old but in great condition. Is it fixable? Could I do it myself?
Mod # PLMV168CC1

Most of the time the magnetron is defective if the food is not heating up.
In some cases there is a defective low power transformer or other componenents associated with the magnetron.
I would suggest to check the owners manual under the warranty section. Sometimes the magnetron has 5 years warranty.
