Question about GE XL1800 1100 Watts Microwave Oven
This morning when warming up my cold cup of coffee my microwave made a little crackle noise, continued to run but did not heat up the coffee. The fan runs, it lights up, and turntable turns, but does not heat anything. Any ideas?
It is a:
GE Spacesaver XL 1800
Model #: JVM1851BH06
Mfg date: June 2006
I don't like to pass on your problem but it sounds very much like either the high voltage supply ot the magnetron has bit the dust.
Either one would make the repair marginal at best.
This is apparently not a very good unit, many microwaves jsut kind of fade away as their magnetron emissions decay.
This one seems to have a bad rep. look at this link:
Sorry, have owned a lemon or two myself.
