Question about GE Microwave Ovens
Posted by Anonymous on
Here is a simple power test.
Place a measured cup of water into the microwave. Run the micro for 2 minutes. A 1000 watt micro will boil a cup of water in 2 min. Check the power output of your machine. It will be found on the model number tag. A 700 watt micro will take about 3 minutes. If this occurs, the machine is working properly.
Otherwise, check the outlet voltage, should be 110 or higher.
Outside of this, you could need a high voltage capacitor or magnetron.

A diode is an electronic component that
readily passes current in one direction only and blocks the flow of
current in the opposing direction. If your microwave's diode has become
defective, your microwave will not heat and you will hear a buzzing
noise. Test the diode to determine if this is the cause of your problem.
Replace it if it is defective.
A capacitor is an electrical device
which stores electricity. A defective capacitor may be why your
microwave is not heating but you are hearing a buzzing or humming noise.
The capacitor will have to be tested to determine if this is the cause
of your problem. A defective capacitor will have to be replaced before
your microwave will work again. Make sure you discharge the capacitor before you test it, though.
A defective magnetron is the third
possible cause of why your microwave is not heating, but you can hear a
buzzing noise. Test your microwave's magnetron. Replace it if it is
