In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man. Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

My microwave won't pop popcorn - how can I check if it needs to be serviced?


Humbly suggest 1) microwaves cannot be serviced. They either work or they do not.
If they do not, most people will discard them.
2) Please do not rush to throw this one away.
If it will heat water, it may be just fine.
Sometimes popcorn gets old and stale, and it will absorb moisture, and become un-popable.
Try the machine on a lot of different tests and see if it is really bad.
God bless your efforts.

MICROWAVE POWER TEST

Hi Everyone,

In this tip I will show you how to easily test your Microwaves power. If it is sufficient, or if it is not heating effectively anymore.

Non heating Microwaves are a common issue, and the most likely component that is faulty is the Magnetron - These days Magnetron's are quite expensive (usually about 50% the price of a new Entry Level Microwave). Low heating could mean a Magnetron becoming faulty (unlikely, as a Magnetron either works, or it doesn't work)

Tools required: A Normal Glass (Heat-resistant, in other words Microwave friendly), Water (Room Temperature) , a Centigrade Thermometer (Can get this at any Pharmacy)

Procedure:
1) Fill a glass with approx. 125 ml water. Use water at room temperature (from the tap), avoid using refrigerated water as this will work against the test we are doing.
2) Measure the initial temperature of the water with the thermometer (It should be between approx. 10 & 20 degrees).
3) Place the glass with the water about 2 cm away from the center of the Microwave Oven plate.
4) Heat the water at full power (The highest setting possible on your Microwave) for 70 seconds.
5) Stir the water (For 5 - 8 sec).
6) Measure the final water temperature with a thermometer.
7) If the increase is 45 degrees or more, then your microwave is heating sufficiently, if not it could mean replacing the Magnetron, or purchasing a new Microwave.

I hope this guide as helped you. If it has, please rate it accordingly.

Water damage to microwave


There is a small sensor in the micro wave that controls the heat. You probably got water on the connections and shorted it out.

Suggest you pull the plug out, remove outer cover and place a cup of water into the micro. Set power to minimum then switch on and take note if the fan works or not. If not, switch off immediately and have it replaced(magnatron will burn out if left to run without fan.)

Have GE JVM2050 over the range microwave, which stopped heating food and water since this morning. All other functions including light, key pad, clock, turntable work normal. The magnetron sound also


if everything works except the heating, it is most likely the mag tube is on its way out.........that is the most common reason for it not too cook.......since the microwave is a GE and it is 3.5 years old, i would say you are better off buying a new microwave, the mag tube starts at around $70.00 and up + the labor it costs too have a service person put it in........around another $60.00

Humming and sparking inside the microwave


Sounds like you have metal inside oven, and arching can happen if nothing is in there to absorb energy.
