If its making a humming noise, that means the diode is bad and should be replaced. Once replaced the microwave will begin to heat again.

Wont heat. Everything else seems to work. I notice a HUMMING noise while it is opperatiing


A loud humming or buzzing noise would indicate a short on the magnetron circuit, the part that heats the food. These can be expensive to repair since the cost of the magnetron can be as much as a new oven. Get a few estimates before deciding whether to repair or replace.

Microwave not heating


In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man. Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

GE Spacemaker XL1800 hum/buzz noise but heating works


the magnetron needs replacement my friend, although you can still heat up food but eventually it will soon fail.
appreciate your kind comment
