Hi,
The most common problem is the Magnetron going out on the microwave.
These are replaceable but the repair is usually going to cost more ar nearly as much as a new microwave.

My GE XL1800 JVM1850 SH06 will cool food, but turntable and lights don't work. Bulbs are good, and I replaced the turntable motor. Manually switched turntable on and off. This had no effect.


May 24, 2017 - I regularly repair these microwave controllers and details are here.

It's best to follow up with me directly. (FixYa does not notify us directly when follow-ups are posted, so we have to log in to the site to see them.)

Microwave lights up, turntable turns and fans run however food does not heat up. I have checked to ensure the power level is up which it is. Tried the express 1 minute as well as using the time mode and...


The problem is one of three things, the magnetron "common issue" the high voltage capacitor and diode can be a factor, all three work together in conjunction with the high voltage transformer to generate the high voltage that heats the food.

My GE spacemaker microwave doesn't heat up foods. There is a slight bit of heat generated but not much. All timers, lights, etc. work normal. It is a GE model jvm1440. It is about 3 years old. The problem...


IT COULD BE A NUMBER OF THINGS RANGING FROM DIODES TO CAPACITORS TO YOUR MAGNATRON OR THERMOSTAST OR TRANSFORMERS. IT'S DIFFICULT TO DIAGNOSE WITHOUT SEEING THIS MICROWAVE. YOU MAY BE BETTER OFF GETTING YOURSELF A DIFFERENT ONE.

Microwave light and timer work, but no cooking


IF IT TURNS ON AND SOUNDS LIKE ITS COOKING IT IS PROBABLY THE HEART OF THE MICROWAVE THE RADIATION PART WENT OUT IT IS MORE RECOMENDABLE TO REPLACE THE WHOLE MOCROWAVE

Microwave does not heat.


The magnetron is the device that puts out the heat. In these units, that's the most common cause of a failure to heat. BUT - many of these units are subject to a campaign under which GE will replace the magnetron, stirrer and high voltage diode free. Check the bulletin to see if yours is covered: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/ge_mw_mag_kit_bulletin.jpg Even if yours is not covered by the bulletin, it may have coverage of the magnetron. If you have questions, call GE Customer Relations at 1-800-386-1215 (8-6 ET)
