If your microwave oven "works" meaning that your display, cooking tray rotates, and the light turns on when you open the door, but does not heat the food, the problem usually is with the magnetron circuit. If you hear a loud hum when you try to heat something in the oven usually means that the magnetron has failed. The replacement magetron is about the same price as a new oven, so you are better off buying a new oven.

GE Spacemaker Microwave XL1400- No heat


The problem could be anything from a defective control circuit board or a burned out magnetron tube. Either fix is quite expensive and you'll have to evaluate whether you think the repair is worth the cost vs buying a new microwave.

Bear in mind that a fixed microwave is still a used microwave. So to get an apples-to-apples comparison you have to ask yourself, would I pay $XXX (substitute XXX's with actual repair cost) for my used microwave?

Ge spacemaker runs but wont heat


Hi, there are three issues that will cause a no heat situation in a microwave. these issue are a failed Magnetron, busted cut-off fuse and, failed diode.

I recommend checking all these area that are located inside the microwave for faults.

The most common issue will be a failed Magnetron.

The diode and, fuse will be located on the noise filter assembly.

My GE spacemaker microwave won't heat and makes an unusual sound


I have the same problem on my oven- model JVM1640WB and called an appliance repairman who is honest and reliable (I've used him before). He said the problem is with the electrode, to fix it is roughly $300. He recommended buying a new microwave rather than fixing it.
