Question about GE JVM1650 1000 Watts Microwave Oven
I have posted this problem before. The JVM1650 is shutting off after a few seconds. It seemed to work with control panel at a 45 degree angle but now it is starting to shut off while panel is off. I have found the same customer service with GE. They will only cover magnetron on a service call. I followed the troubleshooting flow chart enclosed with the microwave that also includes the wiring diagram.Anyway, one of the tests include measuring voltage at relay on circuit board while unit is running, I get about 0 volts. I should be getting 120v. The chart says to replace high voltage transformer. Is the shutting off a symptom of a bad HVT?? I do not want to keep replacing parts I do not need. I tried a new printed circuit board but that was not the problem. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Thanks for the help. I replaced magnetron and problem is solved.

You have a bad magnetron. The fact that it works when the board is tilted is the giveaway.
If you don't want to pay for the service call and prefer to do it yourself, please note the safety and parts links below:
