Your microwave might be in "Demo Mode" if a "d" appears on the display. Press and hold down the Timer button for five seconds to put it back into normal mode.

SOURCE: microwave will not heat
Had the same problem--the timer would even count down. The magnetron fan would not turn on, and the microwave would not heat. Checked out several components, but ended up being just the door latch out of adjustment! Be sure to discharge the capacitor before messing around in there. It keeps a charge even when unplugged. Short out the unused terminal on the capacitor to a screw in the chassis, using a short length of insulated wire.

SOURCE: GH7145XFB-1 not heating properly
Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:
- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose conneciton on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part

If you look at consumer affairs.com, there are many problems like this with GE microwaves. Not a good track record, experiencing problems with mine as well.

The problem is that the magnatron is not getting power. Chance is that if could be a bolwn fuse inside the unit. If the fuse don't fix it then that leaves the charging diode, capacitor or the magnatron, or high voltage xformer of which without technical epertize I would not recomend attempting to replace. good luck

you may have gotten a power surge and that can cause some funny things to happen, 1st is there power to the oven, 2nd if so there may be an internal fuse protector built in to the oven, check with the manual for anything of that sort listed. if not you may have to take it in and have it repaired by a pro. there is a lot of voltage in these ovens and unless you know what you are doing a person could get hurt
