My GE microwave oven is making a loud noise and doesn't seem to be heating up. What is wrong with it?


if it is a humming sound and not a motor or fan u probably have a bad magnatron or power supply component causing a heavy load.

Runs but has loud humming sound. Does not heat. Turntable, timer and lights work.


The diode that connects to the capacitor needs to be replaced. Once its replaced microwave will begin to heat again. (If it wasn't heating and wasn't making a humming noise, then your magnetron would need to be replaced). If you are thinking of doing it yourself and need instructions, i'll be glad to help.

The microwave is making a loud humming noise when it is on and it isn't heating. It also has a burning smell. We had this microwave repaired replacing the magnetron and diode in Jan. 2006.


sounds like same problem again.... the magnetron is what does the heating and if the display is working and just humming sounds like the mag is not coming on .... could be the capacitor but most likely the magnetron again..... i am a appliance /heating and air company out of texas we work on these things everyday and is very common problem... thanks a/c and heating unlimited good luck

GE Spacemaker XL1800(JVM1850CF001) - Loud Humming noise


You either have a bad magnetron tube (5 or 10 year parts warranty item through GE Factory Service 1-800-432-2737 or www.geappliances.com) or a shorted high voltage rectifier. I think the light being out is a secondary problem.

If all of your door switches check out, replace the magnatron, capacitor, and diodes.
