You will need to find the source of the burning. it could be a cheap fix or more involved depending on the component. it could be a transformer, h.v.diode, magnetron, etc. if the diode is shorted, there is a good chance magnetron is defective too.

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 .

I have a 2001 GE Spacemaker #JVM1840CD001 that does not heat anything, but runs. What's wrong and how can I fix it?


If your microwave oven "works" meaning that your display, cooking tray rotates, and the light turns on when you open the door, but does not heat the food, the problem usually is with the magnetron circuit. If you hear a loud hum when you try to heat something in the oven usually means that the magnetron has failed. The replacement magetron is about the same price as a new oven, so you are better off buying a new oven.
