You likely have a blown thermal cutout mounted above the magnetron, or possibly a blown fuse.

I would say this is is a problem with the bottom door switch.

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or occasionally a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There also should 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 & testing.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.

Feel free to contact me directly for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: Ge microwave model JVM1190WY buttons work but does not cook

The problem you are having with your microwave is a common one. Not heating is a problem that can be caused by three things. I'll list the most common solution first, the magnetron that actually does the heating is what is making that noise and has gone bad. It is possible for you to also have a bad high voltage diode that has opened up, solution two, or solution three is the high voltage capacitor is not working properly as well. From my experience with microwaves I am positive that it is your magnetron that is bad. If you are not do it yourselfer you'll need to take it to a repair shop to replace. However, if you know how to use a screwdriver and can unplug a couple of wires with spade terminals on them, then you can take it off yourself, find another one and replace it the same way you took it off. The magnetron sits behind the control panel of your microwave but on top. It has cooling fins on it and has 2 terminals maybe three depending and make and model that plug into it. It has 4 screws that are easy to get to that actually holds it in place. If you do not have a good local source like an electronic parts supply place then you can find the right magnetron at www.mwoparts.com. Be sure you always unplug the microwave before touching or trying to take the he cover off and then when you take the magnetron off also.Good luck and God bless.

SOURCE: Touch control failed on GE Spacemaker Microwave HVM1540

If you want to order a touch pad, (it has the micro computer built in it!) and fix it that way, you'll still have a 2-3 year old machine.
I would say it would be quicker and cheaper to buy a new one.

Good Morning, My mother-in-law tunred the microwave on for 1 hour instead of using the timer. It now appers comletely dead. Anything we can do Or time to buy a new one?


Aounds like ***********-in-law cooked the magnetron. If a microwave runs for an extended period with nothing in it, the magnetron (thing that makes the microwaves) is likely to have failed.

Help the environment and don't throw it away, find your local Maytag service center, by using http://www.servicebench.com/servlet/WebSideServlet?Request_Id=APPWhirlpoolDealerLocateBrandedGoto&Request_Server=servicebenchpublic&Request_Brand=M&Request_ReadUrl=Y to locate your local agent.

Had it set on cook for 75 minutes instead of timer. It is now dead. No smell or noise.Can it be fixed? Is it worth a fix?


The magnetron is most likely shot. Are you saying the microwave won't come on at all? First off what is the model? there may be an internal fuse that is blown. How long have you owned the unit? Once I have more information I can assist you further.
Thank you,

Unit is dead after accidentally running it empty.


If you ran it for that long with nothing inside, there is a good chance it self cooked.

It can probably be repaired. The economics of the repair is something you will have to judge for yourself.

To assist you, may i suggest you visit www.repairclinic.com and check on some major parts for your make and model. If the parts = more than 25% of replacement, I think id be moving on. Expect to pay a pro at least $100.00/hr labor. You should NOT do it unless you are skilled at handling delicate and lethal electronics. A microwave can kill. Another thing, after you fix it, you have a lot of $ invested and still have a old machine that ran for 13 + minutes empty.

Oven won't function after 5 minutes of cook time with nothing in


It's posible that since it was running empty, the magnetron overheated and a thermal cutout or thermostat located on the magnetron opened.

Magnetrons may be protected by a thermostat, which will reset when it cools, or a thermal fuse, which is a one-time use device. It is also possible that in some cases, a thermostat will fail when opened.

In the worst case the magnetron may be damaged due to running empty.

I hope this will solve your issue.

Good Luck.

If my solution proves useful please accept it.

Pushed cook button with nothing in oven now it doesn't work at al


Try to unplug your microwave then leave it for 1 hour the purpose is to reset and drain stored current after 1 hour plug it again ,if still notworking there something wrong inside. Usually, when your microwave oven doesn't work it all, the internal fuse (thermal fuse) is blown. This fuse protects both you and the oven. When it blows,you need to replaced it or you need to have a qualified appliance repair technician replace it.

Hope it may help you;
