It's not difficult, but on a GE, there can be a lot of screws to remove!

And some models have a 5-9 year warranty and GE will send you one free.

We may have the service manual which you can download free.

It depends of course, on the model number.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more free information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Why does my ge profile spacemaker not heat up


There maybe so many factors. How old is your microwave. From your description, I believe you may have to change your Magnetron. Maybe the magnet is cracked.

Any handy man should be able to handle that but remember, without calling a service technician, you lose the comfort of warranty if something would happen to go wrong.

No heat


If the fan, lites, all work and appears to be running normal but just no heat, chances are its the magnetron that has failed. Sometimes magnetron will make a deeper noise if it has failed

The unit was taken into a repair shop. The repairman said the magnetron shorted out and the unit failed. Fortunately, the unit had a 5 yr warrantee on the magnetron (1-yr on everything else). Total out of pocket costs are estimated at $65 to reinstall a new magnetron plus the aggravation of two weeks without a microwave. Those are pretty handy devices to be without!

Microwave not heating food


It's most likely the Magnetron. The are not very easy to install and quite expensive. Older models magnetrons cost about 80 bucks from GE. It's probably not something you would want to try and repair yourself. Call a GE service person.

Microwave oven does not heat anything


It's probably a defective magnetron.

This should have a one-year full parts and labor warranty, then another several years on the magnetron, typically 9 years.

A typical service call for this might run about $175 for the visit and repair labor, assuming the magnetron is still covered under warranty. Compare that to the cost of buying and installing a comparable oven.

Your owner's manual will tell you how long the magnetron warranty is.

You can save that home visit charge and get a diagnosis for about $25 or so by removing it from the wall and taking it to the nearest GE-authorized servicer.

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.

GE SpaceMaker Microwave suddenly stops while heating


I had same problem last week. My GE JVM1650 Spacemaker stopped after a few seconds of heating. Owned 16 months, manufactured Jan 2005. It was the magnetron, which was replaced yesterday. The magnetron has a 10-year warranty, but I had to pay $161.00 for labor by a GE technician. The call-out fee was waived at my request. I don't know what that amount would have been, but I can't believe the $161.00 for what was about 1/2 hour labor once diagnosed. Good Luck!
