Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

My GE SPACEMAKER XL1800 [JVM1850SH02] is not heating food. The LED display, internal lights, and turntable works. After turning it on for 1min, I can hear some crackling and smell something burning like plastic. From all the posts, it sounds like its a magnetron problem? And is it worth replacing or getting a new microwave. The microwave is dated Feb/2005.

The magnetron is what provides the heat is the most common part to fail. It is not hard to replace or that expensive. Partselect . com or daysappliance carry the part, the diagram, and more.

Doen't heat food


More information will be needed to solve this issue. Does the keypad work? What about the interior light or the turntable? Check the internal fuse, and the door interlock switches.

My GE Profile Spacemaker XL1800 is not heating my food all of a sudden. Everything else like turntable, electonic display, fan, timer etc. all seems to work as normal. What do you think is wrong?


This could be as simple as a loose high voltage connection or somthing more serious, I would suggest asking a qualified technician for a quote to repair.

GE Spacemaker XL1800 (jvm1850sh06) problem


Use a hair blow dryer to dry out the underside of the microwave. After you are convinced that it is dry you may operate it again.

That said, if it still is acting up read this:

When the microwave sounds okay, but there's no heat, one of the internal door switches, the high voltage circuitry, or the circuit board may have a problem. To resolve this problem, you need the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Spacemaker XL1800 runs but doesn't heat.


I think you should check the fuse first that runs the magnatron if the fuse is good that means the magnatron is bad! but if its only the fuse then you save time and money!
