Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
I have this built in microwave that is about 7 years old. It has worked up to today just fine. I put something into it to reheat tonight and the food came out cold. Tried a second time to heat it and still cold. Any ideas?
Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:
- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part (such as a shorted diode)
