SOURCE: GE Spacemaker XL1400 Microwave works

If it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years) but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.

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

NOTE: 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.

Sounds like the problem is in the high voltage. Most common would be magnatron, capacitor and diode. For safety reasons this should be checked by a professional. Look in your owners manual because some high voltage parts have a longer warranty than 1 yr.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

G.E. Profile Spacemaker XL1400 will not heat food


This can be the magnetron power supply area, the controler for the magnetron power supply, or the main control board itself.

If the turntable is spinning, the countdown timer is working, and the fans are going, this leaves out the possiblity for a defective safety switch.

I suggest you send the microwave oven out for an estimate if it is out of warranty. I would not suggest you try to fix this yourself.
