    My magnatrol checked out okay, checked my hv transformer and found the secondary windings open

  • Joe Reed Jan 10, 2013

    Correction, the secondary windings were not open.I had to seperate the two red wires that went to capacitor to get get correct reading. Every part of hv circuit checked out to correct specs. I am going to go ahead and replace the magnatron because that can read ok with vom and still be bad.

Check the high voltage diode for a short.

See: http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html
(if it's not shorted or burned, it's probably okay)

Extra Large GE Microwave does not heat


Dear JD,
If you wish to repair the one you have, recommend you go to the SearsPartsDirect website, and type in you model number when asked.
You will see a nice blow-up of your model with parts listed. According to your information, you should either need a fuse, a capacitor, or a magnetron, or any combination of those.
The fuse might or might not be the problem.
The capacitor is the electronic "starter" to start the magneton, and the magnetron is the part that emits radio waves to cook the food.
Understand that, if you choose to"do-it-yourself", the capacitor is a very dangerous item, as it "holds a charge", so be certain to seek an electrical expert before you start the job.
Another choice for you would be to find a good craftsman who could fashion or design and make some panel inserts for the kitchen area if you must get a smaller microwave.
God bless your efforts.

Microwave will not heat


If everything else works, like display, light, turntable, but does not heat, it probally the magentron circuit that failed. It the part that generates the microwaves that heat the food. When it fails, it makes a loud buzzing sound. If this is the case, it not worth fixing since the replacement magnetron cost as much as a new oven. Sorry.

Microwave oven stays on continuously and won't heat food.


Spacemakers have had problems with there magnatron, part is around 170.00. Depending on the year it is covered under a warranty however the labor is not. I have replaced 3 spacesavers for people already due to this issue. Unit runs but will not heat.
