SOURCE: Microwave not heating food and is making loud noise.

You have burned out the magnatron (heating element) which is common on GE microwaves. most service companies will charge about 200-250 to replace it

SOURCE: GE microwave stopped heating food. adjusting

If you can enter any time or power level on the micro touch pad, and the micro starts and counts down and stops, then your electronic control board (panel) is ok. The problem is in the heating energy components such as magnatron, transformer, capacitor, and diode; these components being very hi voltage and you must know what you are doing (must release the stored energy) so you do not get shocked (even if unplugged). Most often it is the diode or capacitor and it is worth repairing. Goodluck, macgivor..

Temperature at 10 power level


It does not work that way. The microwave OVEN generates (electromagnetic) microwaves that are absorbed by the molecules of the food in the oven, the container and the air.
The absorption rate depends on the molecular composition. After enough microwave energy is absorbed the overall temperature increases and the food is warmed, heated or cooked. If your mixture is inhomogeneous some parts absorb more energy while other absorb less and you can have hot spots.

The power level by itself won't give you an indication of the temperature because you need to know the time that the power has been applied. In simple terms Energy =time*power. The temperature reached is somewhat proportional to the energy, that makes it dependent on the time and the power.

Everything works fine, except my food is still cold


Check the "power" level setting.

Most microwaves allow adjusting the power level from 1 to 10 (or 10 to 100 on some models). 10 (or 100) is the highest/quickest setting.

I can check mine by entering a time...then before pushing "start"....push the "power" button....and change the level if I want.

There is a solid state switching device called a triac "electronic voltage controller" that has malfunctioned, it controls the power level settings when making power selection, It will need to be replaced to correct the problem. This repair should be done by a qualified technician because dangerous high voltages are present.

GE Spacemaker microwave oven - Sensor error


Hello :

Many models of the GE microwave have sensors that can detect humidity from the foods you are cooking. This allows the microwave to make adjustments to the power levels used to cook your food. If "Sensor Error" appears, you should either press "Clear" to cancel the mode or leave the food in the appliance longer to give the microwave more time to detect the food.

Press "Time Cook" to manually enter the time if you receive an error message when trying to use the "Sensor Reheat" mode of your GE microwave. The error message may be caused by the food item being too large or too small to detect
..


good luck .

Not hot


In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. or a fault that is shutting the system down for safety reasons 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.

Microwave oven stays on continuously and won't heat food.


Spacemakers have had problems with there magnatron, part is around 170.00. Depending on the year it is covered under a warranty however the labor is not. I have replaced 3 spacesavers for people already due to this issue. Unit runs but will not heat.
