Question about GE XL1800 1100 Watts Microwave Oven
You need to first verify that your outlet is correct at 105 to 125 volts AC.
If so, then you may have a failing high voltage transformer (rare) or possibly a failing magnetron, etc.
There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
Accessing some components for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.
If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.
You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.
Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:
(if it is NOT shorted or burned looking, it's probably fine)
(continuity can be good even though mag is bad!)
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
