You may have a failure of the H.V. rectifier. I would recommend that a trained technician replace this part due to the high voltage potential.

Have ge profile spacesaver xl sensor. will not heat strange buzzing sound and burning smell. clock, light, vent still work


This is most likely a defective magnetron, especially with the burning smell. There are two other parts that can be a problem, the high voltage capacitor and diode, all three work together to heat food. If the magnetron is the culprit, probably cheaper to replace the microwave oven.

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.

Burning smell microwave


The burning smell is most likely the rectifier burning. Look for a rectanguler black thing connecting from one lead of the capacitor to ground.

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.

GE PRofile Spacemaker XL Microwave Oven Model# JVM1460 950 watts


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.
