Question about GE JVM2050 Microwave Oven
In the last few days, JVM2050 microwave heats intermittently (fan, light, etc always work, just the heating is intermittent). Is this a bad magnetron? Can I replace it myself or do I need to hire someone? Microwave is only a couple years old.
Over several years of repairing microwaves, I have found a number of
magnetron tubes that were intermittent. Generally, though, the problem is more likely to be a door switch, upper or lower, not middle. An electronic circuit board is also a possibility. High voltage rectifiers sometimes become intermittent, but I've seen only one case per 1000, or so, ovens in for repair.

Not the magnetron if intermittent. Probably a bad smartboard. Easy to replace if you know the basic precautions to take.
