Hello there
This as a fairly common problem with these microwaves the problem is that the mangetron fails and needs to be replaced
First you will have to remove the screws from the back along the edges and sides of the microwave access then remove the outer cover to allow access to the magnetron. then remove the electrical connections from the magnetron, i have the picture below of what it looks like o?k
it is very simple to remove simply remove the wires to it and the screws which hold the magnetron in place and remove . Replacement of the new part is just the reverse of removing the other one. Cost to do this by a technician would have been somewhere in the neighborhood of $65.00 for coming to the house, and $75.00 per hour rounded to probably 2 hours to do it. So, doing this yourself is satisfying not only in knowing you did the job, but the $200.00 plus dollars you saved as
well. here is what it looks like in the pict below it should like one of these

You probably have a bad "magnatron", if the device is farily new, check the manaul in the back, the mangatron (produces the microwavesw) may be under warranty, they are usually guranteed for 5 years parts and labor. Contact the phone number in the back of your manual to find out how to deal with it, they may make you pay for shipping though

It is more than likely the magnetron is gone, there are also the high voltage capacitor and diode that can be a factor. If the magnetron is the culprit the repairs would be more than a new microwave oven.

The microwave is not heating the food.


When it did heat food before and you used the same settings now, the microwave must be defect.
But before you are sure, put a cup with water in the micro and try to heat that.
Dry food can't be heated in a microwave. There must be some moist in the food if you want to heat it in the microwave.

I have the Dacor DCM24 microwave and if the table does not spin will the microwave still cook food. I think my turn motor is bad, but wanted to know if I could cook food without it?


Yes! it will continue to cook food, the only difference you may end up with cold spots in the food, rotate plate once or twice to reduce this.

GE Spacemaker microwave oven - Sensor error


Hello :

Many models of the GE microwave have sensors that can detect humidity from the foods you are cooking. This allows the microwave to make adjustments to the power levels used to cook your food. If "Sensor Error" appears, you should either press "Clear" to cancel the mode or leave the food in the appliance longer to give the microwave more time to detect the food.

Press "Time Cook" to manually enter the time if you receive an error message when trying to use the "Sensor Reheat" mode of your GE microwave. The error message may be caused by the food item being too large or too small to detect
..


good luck .

My ifb microwave oven is getting hot outside while


Normally when u cook food in microwave the fod is cooked by microwaves, which means the heat is generated with in food. The temperature inside is never too hot and all the heat produced is absorbed with in the food.

On the other hand when the grill is switched on, a separate heatting element gets switched on. You can see this red hot element on the top side of inside of microwave. the heat from this element gets transferred to food through air circulation. But partof heat also gets transferred to the walls of microwave oven. This is the reason the wall feel hot during use of grill.

As i see ther is no problem with the microwave itself. Jut kep delicate thngs a bit away from the microwave.

Not heathing food or liquids, but works otherwise


The unit needs a new part--something inside needs to be replaced, but, only an experienced tech can tell you for sure, because, just like with car repair, I may think I know exactly what you need listening to you describe the problem, but until I look at what we're talking about, it's all guess work. The main thing is are you willing to put out $75 to $150 or more to get the thing fixed. If you are, call a few local appliance repair shops that are in your local yellow pages, and start comparing labor rates.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.

I need some instruction i have done every thing but everything works but it does not heath at all


I can help you.

When the microwave sounds okay, but there's no heat, one of the internal door switches, the high voltage circuitry, or the circuit board may have a problem. To resolve this problem, you need the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Microwave won't heat food


If the microwave operates normally, but does not heath at all, then it can be the high voltage capacitor, the rectifier diode.or the magnetron.

The diode and capacitors can br tested. The capacitor must be allowed discharge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, even if power is off. Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.

All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.

Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.

Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.

Regarding parts, your model number did not return any result, contact the seller here to purchase parts. (here in UK).
