Microwave operates but does not heat


Most common issue ias thet the magnatron inside the unit has gone to magnatron heaven. these seem to die out more quickly that the older ones used to. But if it is not working you will not get any heat, these are the little radar wave producers that cause the heating effect. They can be replaced but it is usually not cost effective. You can look up your make and model on the net to see what prices you can find and decide wheter you want to fix it or get a new one.
If you find this helpful, a vote with the thumbs up would be greatly appreciated.

Working on a GE model JVM1860WF001, light comes on motor runs but don't heat, need help trouble shooting, or what is wrong?


i've been a g.e. service provider for years and if everything is working except the heat most likely it is going to be a magnetron on unit and will require disassembly of the cabinet to gain access...
the magnetrons on most of these units have a five year warranty so it may be worth calling a service tech out to evaluate.... could save you some money...if it is older than five years than the cost of repairs may exceed the value of the microwave at present time....
good luck and give me a vote please/////

Everything works except heat


this is something you should probably call a repair technician for, due to the danger of the componentry.

Usually in ther case of this problem, even a technician will advise you to replace the unit, in the minds of cost effectiveness and safety...

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.

Sounds like you've had a failure in the microwave portion of the unit.

Microwave not heating problems when the timer/controller board appears to function properly, are related to the following components -

1) Diode
2) Capacitor
3) Transformer
4) Magnetron

GE JVM 1443 - Unit makes a deeper noise and will not heat


Hello mrobinert,
The sound you may be hearing could be the filament transformer breaking down or the magnetron tube failing ..they will arc and eventually fail. If you aren't getting any microwave energy ( to heat material in the cooking compartment) then in all probability it is either the transformer, magnetron or high voltage capacitor.. None of which are something you want to repair yourself... My advice is that if the cost to repair exceeds teh cost to replace then just buy a replacement model. If yours is under 1 year old, then you may be able to negotiate and get a replacement from the store where you purchased it.. If it is older than a year, it's probably cost effective to just buy a new model.
Regards,
Rick

GE JVM130 001 Over Range Microwave does not heat


It's probably the high voltage rectifier diode or magnetron.

The magnetron will have a guarantee lasting about 5-9 years, so if it might be covered, contact GE at http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/contact/

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

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
Also, there should be a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel.

New microwave; loud fan when heating items


Since you say it's new, it should be under warranty. I would call GE (see your owner's manual) to get a local authorized service center. Then while you're on the phone with the service center, you can start it up and hold the phone close to it to demonstrate to the technician how loud it is. They should be able to tell you if it will be covered under warranty so you get it fixed free.
