Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Microwave not heating properly is caused by a power relay going bad, cold solder joint on the board and/or magnetron (this is only if it makes a loud hum/buzz sound). Also the door hooks and the door-release button should be checked. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.



Thanks
Rylee

Have GE JVM2050 over the range microwave, which stopped heating food and water since this morning. All other functions including light, key pad, clock, turntable work normal. The magnetron sound also


if everything works except the heating, it is most likely the mag tube is on its way out.........that is the most common reason for it not too cook.......since the microwave is a GE and it is 3.5 years old, i would say you are better off buying a new microwave, the mag tube starts at around $70.00 and up + the labor it costs too have a service person put it in........around another $60.00

Microwave not heating...power going to it...turntable runs, lites on...no heating


If you have the experience with discharging a capacitor and you have a (VOM) Volt Olm Meter. Unplug microwave, discharge capicitor, and check the resistance of the two thermal cut-off discs by removing the lead and set VOM to RX1. If you don't get a reading of zero, replace the discs. If you found any of these suggestions helpful, please rate my solution. D. Lange

Microwave function not working properly on GE Advantium SCA2000BCC03


I assume you're talking about the internal cooling fan, which should always be on when you're microwaving.

If it is not coming on, the magnetron can be destroyed from overheating!

The turntable and and cooling fan are both controlled by relay RY17 on the main circuit board.

We regularly repair these control units for customers nationwide with our guaranteed $39.95 service in about a week.

Feel free to contact me directly for more information & help.

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