It sounds like you either have a bad connection on the h.v. side or the magnetron is faulty and unable to create an efficient field.the first thing to do is to isolate the power supply from the mains the short out the plug on a metal surface to get rid of any stored energy,then check all the connections on the high voltage side by removing them 1 at a time and tightening the terminal and replacing onto were you removed it .carry on until all terminals have been checked then try it ,if this does not work then you need to replace the magnetron,hope this helps regards les

Anything can be fixed, it all depends on how much it will cost to repair. Sometimes it just pays to buy another microwave oven they have come down in price quite a bit

I have a GE profile PEM31SM3SS that heats intermittently. This is the second time it has stopped heating but in the past has started to work again sometimes months later. Is there any fix I can do short of...


do this test and fix it. God bless you


  1. Check the power diodeThis electronic component is responsible for transmitting current in one direction. If the diode becomes defective it will cause your microwave to not heat. Test the diode and replace it if necessary.
  2. High voltage capacitorResponsible for storing electricity, this part is a key component in any microwave. Remove, discharge, and test the capacitor to determine if it requires replacement.
  3. Damaged magnetronResponsible for generating waves and producing heat. When your microwave is no longer heating properly, replacement will be required.
  4. Thermal CutoffsExamine the thermal cutoffs on both the magnetron and the oven itself. Take off one of the leads and using a volt-ohm meter on RX1, check the terminals. If you get a result other than zero, replace the thermal cutoffs.

Microwave is not heating food up. It starts and runs the time but the food is still cold after the time is comlete


Often this is due to a bad door switch located inside behind the area where the door hooks go into the oven. Sometimes, the problem is due to a bad connection or a bad relay on the control board. You can send it back to GE, and it should cost from $30 to $40 dollars to repair.

Bad magnetron tube. Call GE Factory Service 1-800-432-2737 or schedule online www.geappliances.com there is a 5 or 10 year parts warranty on the magnetron tube.

Please Help my GE Microwave produces no heat!!


Most of the time it seems to be the magnetron. The Magnetron is what heats the food, when you remove the magnetron sometimes you will see signs of wear like a black or brown spot on the tube sometimes there is even a hole burned through. A cheap place to find these part is Global Micro Parts in Dallas TX. Usually Magnetrons are about $30 - $45 and shipping is only 7.95 there web site is www.allapplianceparts.com
