It could be a loosened screw that holds the panel cover or a worn out rubber base insulator.

JVM 1440 GE microwave stopped heating. all other functions work great. where do I start


GE microwaves are notorious for the magnetron failing, this is what generates the microwaves. Usually the unit will make a louder than normal deep hum when running if this is the case, but not always. If you have the schematic, you can measure for 120 volts leaving the control board to the transformer, you can simply measure the line in on the transformer for this. You also want to visually note that all other functions like the countdown timer, inter light, turntable, and fan are all running when you start a cooking cycle. The monitor, and interlock switches mounted on the latch assy need to be checked for continuity too. If replacing the magnetron we always recommend replacing the high volt diode connected to the capacitor and chassis ground. Pleazer Appliance...

Loud hum in my ge rc7200


More than likely the Magnetron is bad, causing the transformer to over heat. Or it could just be the transformer going bad. Either way not a good situation. Both are expensive.

When you start the microwave it starts normally with a low hum, then a couple of seconds into it the hum gets louder. After the cook time has expired the food is still frozen. Is there something I can do...


Replace the magnetron by the sounds of it. The hum gets louder a second or so into "Cooking", that would comply with the magnetron heaters coming on and working into a dead magnetron. It could be capacitor or diode of course.

Loud RATTLE LIKE HUMM!!


That's what they do - plenty of focused energy at work here. However, try removing the rotating food tray and, with just a glass of water in the oven (never run it empty!) see if the hum goes away. If so, it's the tray driver/carrier.

Humming ge sapcesaver microwave


During operation, most of the built-in models have a panel that tilts out while the exhaust fan is on. When cooking is done, the exhaust fan shuts off and the panel retracts to its normal position. With the fan & microwave motor off, the hum is easier to hear. Look closely at the top panel the next time you hear the hum, and you'll probably see that it's retracting.

Microwave rattle


On some models, the right side of the case is pretty close to the high-voltage transformer. What's normally done is a rubber block is glued to the side of the transformer to keep it from getting so close. In other cases it may be something loose in the fan, stirrer, etc. It really has to be checked to know for sure.
