Question about Microwave Ovens
My GE JVM2070sh01 microwave was shutting off intermittently when it cooked too long. Now it just won't heat anything at all, even though the turntable turns and the light is on inside.
It's almost certain that your magnetron has failed.
If it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years) but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.

There should also 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.
