It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

No heat generated in microwave or convection oven mode


I just read that starting the microwave as usual and then slightly pressing in the handle (you can hear the heater(?) come on will make the heat come on. Tried it and it works. My repairman told me it needed a new magnetron ($700) but that was totally wrong. I will be trying another repairman to replace handle mechanism.

Error Code "d" - Microwave does not heat


The microwave could be in "Demo Mode" - Check your owners manual.

In Whirlpool/Kenmore models this is indicated by a lower case "d" on the right side of the display panel.

Most/All function except the magnatron (heat) work in demo mode so you can can learn to use the oven without actually cooking food

To clear "demo mode" press the "kitchen timer" pad and hold for 5 seconds until the "d" clears from the display... you may hear 2 beeps.

GE microwave not heating, sensor error.


first suspect is the inverter board (power) and magnatron a distant second----in either case the part involved unless an expensive unit is pricey.

My microwave GE model # JVM1440WH04 spacemaker has no heat coming out of it. My husband heated microwave lasagna in it last, everything works except for the heat, any solutions?


Push the microwave door tightly closed. The computer will not start cooking until the door is closed for safety reasons. Some models of microwave will give a warning on the screen if the door is open.
2

Ensure you have programmed a heat setting, entered a cooking time and pressed the "Start" button on the microwave's keypad. Check that the microwave is not set to "Defrost" mode.
3

Unplug the microwave and wait for one minute. This measure will reset the microwave's internal computer if it has frozen or scrambled. Plug the microwave back in and try again.
4

Ensure the keypad lock mode is inactive. Most microwave ovens have a lockout feature that prevents children from starting the microwave while unsupervised. Lockout mode is usually deactivated by holding down the button that bears a padlock symbol

The microwave will not heat food. It will turn on the turntable will go around and the time will count down but the food is not heated when done. tried different heat setting with no results.


This seems to be a common problem, there are three parts that will cause this, the magnetron "heats food" a common failure, the high voltage diode and capacitor are the other two culprits. The cost to repair will approach the price of a new oven.

It says demo mode and there is no heat, everything else works


Have you checked your manual to see how to get out of demo mode? Since it is still in demo mode, you won't be able to use it for anything else. If you don't have the manual, go to GE's website and download the manual there. Also, you can check their site for Support and look for troubleshooting.

JUst purchased a Cook's Essentials programmable pressure cooker, but cannot get it to heat. The program mode seems to be working, that is, all thae proper lights light up, but no heat in element whatsoever...


If you're following the instruction manual but it won't heat, and it's within the 30 day return period, I'd take it back to the dealer for a replacement.

If it's past 30 days, but within the warranty period, you'd have to contact the manufacturer via the owner's manual to get it repaired.

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