It may be that the convection fan blade is loose on its shaft, which will keep the heat from getting out well.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, & testing.

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.

Accessing some components for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

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

Loud noise wont heat [sharp R-820 BC


This is an indicator that the magnetron has failed, especially when it is followed by a loud sound, but there are two other parts that can be a factor, the high voltage capacitor and diode. The Convection/Microwave Oven needs to be assessed for parts and labor and cost.
