Hello my ge JVM1630WH003 oven make a lound huming sound. It will not heat food or water up . The oven 6 years old. Thank You Kurt

That loud humming is a typical sign of a bad magnetron tube, the microwave source. Six years isn't an unreasonable lifespan for one, so the failure isn't unusual. The tube can be replaced, but it's the most expensive part in the oven, and you should let a professional do the repair. Microwave ovens are dangerous to work on, and there's a chance of microwave leakage if the repair isn't done correctly.

Between the cost of the part and labor, it may be more economical to replace the oven. Check the cost of a new one, then see what a service shop in your area would charge to fix yours. You might find only a small difference in cost, and the new oven would have a warranty.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

Everything works on the microwave accept when you attempt to cook - it does not heat. It makes a straining sound like it wants to kick on, but does not kick on?

The oven has either a shorted HV diode or magnetron tube. The tube generates the microwave energy and the diode is part of its power circuit. The bad parts could be replaced, but it's usually not economical to repair a microwave oven unless it's a very high-end model or a custom built-in unit. Between the cost of parts and labor, you might find the repair cost getting near replacement cost.

If you really want to keep this oven, take it to a service shop for an estimate. Microwave service should be left to professionals. There are potentially deadly voltages present, and a chance of microwave leakage if repairs aren't done properly.

Whirlpool GH7155XHS microwave shows partial display

The display is defective and requires replacement. Unfortunately, the display is probably incorporated as a unit with the control panel and must be purchased as an entire service part. This will cost $80-$120 depending on the oven make & model. It will cost more if you have a repairer install the part.

It may be more cost effective to replace the oven. Microwave ovens are rather inexpensive these days.

Microwave oven

Most microwave oven problems can be repaired, but you'll need to take it to a reputable microwave service shop to get it diag**sed properly and find out how much it will cost to repair. A major problem with the magnetron or other high-voltage parts could cost as much as 85% of a new one to fix. It may be worth it, however, if the oven is in good condition, with ** holes or corrosion in the cooking chamber and if you like the features.
