If it is running and acting like it is working but no heat then it could be one of 5 components. Listed in order of most likely to least likely. If you are up for the challenge of repair in a high voltage environment there should be a technical sheet inside the component compartment that will tell you how to test the components below. I have put approximate cost of the parts by the name.

Magnetron $125.00
Rectifier $45.00
Control relay on the Board $200.00
Capacitor $35.00
Transformer $90.00

I know this is a bit vague but it really could be any one of these causing your symptoms

Microwave light and clock work but no heat


Could be one of the three door switches. If the fan turns on when cooking and no heat then the magnetron is bad. Most problems are the switches

I have a GE JES831WB 001 microwave that I'd love to fix. The light, clock & timer are working, but that's all - no fan nor heating. Any suggestions?


The door switches are often a problem, one or two are probably defective which would cause the symptoms that you are describing.
