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 connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part (such as a shorted diode)

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information 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

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

Sounds like you have a bad smart board, you can try unplugging the unit for five minutes and then back in, if you are lucky this may correct the problem...good luck

I have a GE SpacemakerXL microwave that stopped working after I heard a loud pop. Everything else works, but it does not heat anything. Help?


From the descriptions it likely the magnetron has failed. If you have a digital multimeter post me a comment and I will give instructions to do a rough test.

GE Microwave model JVM1440BD operates but does not heat


Hi,

On most occasions, it is magnetron. If you on your oven and hear an humming noise, that usually confirms magnetron problem.

You could see how to test magnetron

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

GE SpacemakerXL JVM1443 stays on when door is closed


That's almost certainly a failed primary interlock (upper door switch) or its mount is bad.

See our file on info on door switch diagnosis and replacement.

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.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

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

Everything else works but will not heat anything. Clock works,glass plate turns,exhaust fan runs, lights work, just no heat.


Im assuming you dont have testing equipment. The best solution is to replace the capacitor and HV diode. Good chance that is the problem. If no heat still, replace the magnatron, definately will work correctly.(Sorry, to much to explaine otherwise relating to measurement and values). Let me know if still notright).
