you need to remove the outer cover,then carefully discharge the high voltage capacitor with 2 insulated screwdrivers or an insulated jumper wire,then test this and the high voltage diode and the internal ceramic fuse for continuity

Food does not get hot


In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. or a fault that is shutting the system down for safety reasons You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man. Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

My microwave turns on but the food isn't getting hot.


Sounds like a magnetron failure. This is the device that generates the microwaves that heat the food. It is connected to a lot of high voltage components and if you don't know what you are doing can really hurt yourself. Typically these parts short out and it needs to be replaced. The cost of replacing the magnetron come close to the cost of a new oven. Not usually cost effective to repair.

Everything appears to work fine but it is not heating anymore.


If the microwave oven appears to be working but it is not heating the food, it is very possible that the magnetron, or its power supply has failed.

Have GE JVM2050 over the range microwave, which stopped heating food and water since this morning. All other functions including light, key pad, clock, turntable work normal. The magnetron sound also


if everything works except the heating, it is most likely the mag tube is on its way out.........that is the most common reason for it not too cook.......since the microwave is a GE and it is 3.5 years old, i would say you are better off buying a new microwave, the mag tube starts at around $70.00 and up + the labor it costs too have a service person put it in........around another $60.00

Everything works except heat


Sounds like you've had a failure in the microwave portion of the unit.

Microwave not heating problems when the timer/controller board appears to function properly, are related to the following components -

1) Diode
2) Capacitor
3) Transformer
4) Magnetron

Motor sounds differently, smells like something is getting hot, won't heat the food


Do you have good air flow coming out of the vents?

If for some reason the cooling fan stopped working, it can cause the magnetron to overheat and be damaged.

If you don't still have your manual, you can download it here:

It will address ventilation issues.
