You're addressing a public help forum, not a specific servicer.

Generally a servicer will charge about $75 to visit the home, about $75-90 more to do the work, and about $75-90 for the part.

You can save the service call charge by removing it from the wall and taking it into the shop yourself.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here. But that one seems to have a bad link.

A backup copy is here. It has a 9-year warranty on the magnetron.

GE will send you the magnetron to do it yourself. Call them at 888-239-6832.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order other parts by entering your full model number here.

The microwave runs, but does not heat up?


Sounds like the magnetron has failed. This is the component that produces the microwave that heats the food. The cost of the magnetron is about 95% of the cost of a microwave . Most people don't, for this reason, replace the magnetron, they replace the whole oven which is probably what you will end up doing. There is a possibility that the circuit that provides power to the magnetron is faulty and you need to take it apart, find the proper electrical leads and test them with a volt meter. To do this you have to remove it from its mounting and take it apart. It is a fairly lengthy process however.

Microwave won't heat up after something caught fire.


Sounds like the magnetron has failed. There are some high voltage circuits that feed the magnetron and you can potentially get hurt if you don't know what you are doing. Would recommend you have it serviced by a professional if you want it fixed, otherwise look for a new one since the cost of repair can come close to the price of a new microwave oven.

Ge spacesaver microwave ...it is 5 years old and stopped heating


I have an over the oven microwave that blew a magnetron after 4 years. Could be the same thing. It was out of warranty for the free labor, so I took it apart (I'm kind of a geek) and found out the magnetron was gone. Shortening the story: I bought a new magnetron from an online place and replaced it and it works fine. If you have someone replace your magnetron, see if you can get it for free-they have a long warranty on the magnetron ($150 part) and at 5 years, you probably qualify. Rich

I would first advise you to check the waveguide cover. This is probbaly a large one, covering the ceiling of the microwave.

 

If there is grease or food debris on it or above it, using the microwave can cause it to arc and smoke.

 

Otherwise, it may be a problem with the high voltage transformer or magnetron. It would have to be checked.

 

If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
