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.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Light's on, plate rotates, no heat


When the microwave works properly but just doesn't heat, then the magnetron is bad and will need to be replaced. You can get the part and the diagram at partselect . com or repairclinic . com

It sounds like the main transformer has failed. It would be cheaper to replace the whole microwave than repair this one. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Hope this helps. Good luck.

We have a GE Spacemaker XL Microwave JVM1640 that was purchased in 2003 when we built our house. It worked fine on Friday and then Saturday morning, nothing. No lights, not control panel, no...


Hello Smoore66,

USE CAUTION:
Your first microwave experience will be fine...
In order to take out your main power it has to be early
in your control circuitry. Power Board was a good guess
but there's also a main fuse... (usu: MAGNETRON).

If you are going to work on it YOURSELF ("diy")
be VERY careful to remember ALL COVERS
must be in place before EVER energizing the
MAGNETRON (DANGEROUS High FREQ radio).

Parts abound.... even on eBay & AMAZON
(I'll post APPLIANCE PART sales below)

there ae SERVICE GUIDES for sale...
Helpful hints & how to videos at the
parts houses (below).

I'd say it would be the ultimate in RECYCLING....
but a MICROWAVE is a dangerous appliance:
Weigh your options carefully

Good Luck

Ge profile microwave wont heat replaced fuse but still not heatin


most times if you have tryed a new fuse and its still not working, its a dead microwave by dead i mean bump it, the cost of having a repair man look at it would likley cost more than getting a new one at todays prices a new microwave costs less that £50 ?????????
ask yourself this,,, how old is it? is it realy worth spending hard erned cash on an old lame duck???? treet yourself go buy a new one,,,
please be warned,,, dont think of having a go at fixing it yourself,,,inside that microwave is well over 1000 volts tuch it and it kills you,,,
have you ever seen a stun gun work??? it realy hurts you,,,
inside your microwave is the very big brother of the stun gun,,,
it wont stun you,,, it will kill you,,,
and for £50 is it realy worth it

Ge spacemaker xl 1800 - no heat


HI, the loud popping noise was the Magnetron tube. this is the main heating device. the noise filter is also damaged and, should be replaced as well.

In conclusion, replacing the Magnetron tube and noise filter will fix this unit.

My GE XL 1800 does everything except heat


This is not something that you can fix yourself. Most likely, the magnetron needs replaced, and this must be done by a service department. So, if the microwave is relatively new and expensive, take it in for service. If it's an old one or relatively cheap model, you would be better off replacing it because the cost of the repair would likely be more than the unit is worth. Hope that this helps.
