    I have the same exact problem and not sure if there is a replcement for this unit - I was told that the frame and the installation kit will cost as much as a new oven. Please let me know how to fix it or if there is a similar modle that I can replace using the same frame kit.



    Thanks,

    Jeev.

GE microwave not heating, sensor error.


first suspect is the inverter board (power) and magnatron a distant second----in either case the part involved unless an expensive unit is pricey.

HELLO,

THIS MEANS THAT YOUR WAVE HAVE DEVELOP MAIZE PROBLEM OR ELEMENT PROBLEM WHAT THIS MEANS IS THAT THE MAIZE HAS BEEN DISCONNECTED FROM IT POSITION BASS ON THE HEAT WHEN USING

SOLUTION TO YOUR MICROWAVE PROBLEM

UN SCROLL YOUR WAVE TO LOCATE THE MAIZE TRACE FROM THE ELECTRICITY DOWN TO THE ELEMENT YOU WILL SEE THE TRACE OF DISCONNECTION FROM THE ELEMENT THEN REPOSITION THE LOSS WIRE AND THEN COUPLE IT BACK HAS IT WAS.

AFTER ALL THIS THEN YOUR MICROWAVE WILL THEN CARRY OUT IT FUNCTION AGAIN

Above Range GE Microwave not heating


Try disconnecting the power line from the microwave ad then reinstalling it after a few minutes.. then try heating up a small cup of water.. allow 1.5 minutes on high power. it should get very hot or boil.. if it doesn't get warm or hot then you may have a bad magnetron ( the tube that produces the microwave energy that causes things to heat up or a bad filament transformer that is required for the magnetron to work.In either case, if it fails to heat anything, I would go back to home depot and insist they send someone out to address the problem. many of their appliances come with a one year warranty but you might want to call the store and ask someone there about normal applaince coverage ( less extended warranty) and what they normally offer. An inquiry costs nothing..

Hope this helps..

Does the turntable rotate? If everything but this works (except no heat), you probably have a bad door switch. Here's a discussion of what's involved in replacing it: http://www.fixya.com/support/t267796-kenmore_microwave_hood_combination_over

If the turntable does rotate, I'd suspect a more significant failure, such as the transformer, capacitor, or magnetron. If it's any of these, it's time to replace the unit.
