Question about Microwave Ovens
You probably have a worn out Magnetron Tube... That's the part that generates the Microwave Energy that causes food to cook.. GE has a history of bad Magnetrons so I am not surprised yours failed.. It could also be the transformer for it too.. in either case.. they aren't cheap so you may be better off just buying a replacement microwave... your call.. a magnetron could cost you ~ $250 or so ..Transformer is simlar in price.. depending on the model.. Hope that helps... Also: word of caution.. when dealing with Microwave energy components.. you could get seriously injured if you do the wrong thing and the RF shielding is compromised.. We typically do an RF check after a replacement to make sure the system is safe.. Hope that helps..
