MOST LIKELY YOU HAVE A BAD MAGNETRON WHICH IS A DEVICE THAT ACTUALLY HEATS THE UNIT...if the units tiimer and turntable and all are functioning but at the end of the timed cycle the food or liquid is not hot most likely it is the magnetron... the magnetron is one of the main components for the microwave to work and to be honest unless you have access to a supplier or are in the field alot of times the cost to repair almost is as much as a new microwave. good luck servicer now for 18 years and this is a common problem

Food Heats fine, but turntable wont rotate. Makes a loud noise until we press the


see this tips for to repair:
Inspect the plastic drive coupling that the tray sits on, as well as the ring-and-roller assembly, to make sure that they're working properly.
First, make sure the turntable coupler under the glass dish is not broken. Second, on the control board, find the turntable relay and test for voltage. Some turntable motors are 24 volts DC, so make sure your testing the correct voltage. If no voltage from the control board, then replace the control board. Otherwise head towards the turntable motor.On OTR models, you can get to the motor by un-screwing the bottom panel on the microwave. On countertop models, there will either be a knockout or screw on access panel. Check for voltage at the motor. If no voltage, check the wiring back towards the control. If voltage, then replace the turntable motor. The component list below also shows how to test a turntable motor.

Microwave not heating food and is making loud noise.


You have burned out the magnatron (heating element) which is common on GE microwaves. most service companies will charge about 200-250 to replace it

I had a repair man out to fix my microwave and all it took was to reset the unit. We shut off the power source ( at the breaker box ) and turned it back on. This had the effect of a reset. Now it works fine. Hope this helps.
