Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Almost always, on most microwave including GE Adora, no heat with all else working indicates a problem with the magnetron. Since the magnetron produces high RF energy and operates on high voltage, it would be to your advantage to seek the services of a qualified professional.

If on the other hand, the fault of no heat is coupled with no display, error messages, door not locking, no light, then it would be possible for a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair. All that is required is a bit of familiarity with electronic components and circuitry, the use of a DVM/VOM of course safe working practices when repairing electrically powered devices.

Pls post back any other symptoms or indicators other than 'no heat'.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

If under waranty, use it. Otherwise, its probably the microwave (magnetron) tube, and it isn't worth fixing. Microwaves are usually cheap , so just replace it.

Is there a thermastat in ge adora microwaves that could overheat


there are couple protection thermostats on all microwaves. one is cavity t-stat, one is magnetron tstat. if it gets too hot inside the microwave usually cavity thermostat is wired the way that all power will go off to microwave, it will open circuit(usually they not resettable). If magnetron tstat opens up, usually will open circuit to magnetron only (so light is on, seems to run, but no heat). I Hope that helps.

Ge adora over the range microwave, runs but does not heat


Microwaves contain high-voltage parts that can be deadly, even when unplugged, unless handled correctly. Unless you are a qualified expert, don't attempt to get into its inner workings.

First, use this water method to double-check if there is actually an issue with your microwave not heating:

1. Fill a glass measuring cup with water to the 1-cup mark.
2. Set the microwave to heat on full power for 1 minute.
3. Repeat the process with fresh water a handful of times.
4. If the water is not consistently warm, your problem is confirmed.

If your microwave is failing to heat correctly, you may be on a previously programmed setting. Press the STOP/CANCEL button and start the heating process again, but use a higher power setting. This may correct the problem.

If the microwave senses an open door, it will not run. Check to see if a defective or loose door-safety interlock switch is to blame. If tightening it doesn't work, a replacement may be necessary.

Did you know? Neglecting to hit the STOP/CANCEL button on the microwave before you open the door to remove your food damages the safety switch over time.

Microwaves installed above the range may be affected by steam from cooking. Condensation collecting on the circuitry can interrupt heating. Allow the circuitry to dry out by avoiding stovetop cooking for a few days. If you're still having the same problem, it could be a loose connection in the circuitry or a faulty door safety switch.

There may be an issue with the circuit board and its connections, and that work is best left to a qualified professional.

A buzzing or humming microwave that emits a faint burning smell could signal a damaged magnetron, high-voltage capacitor or diode. Replacement magnetrons are expensive, so if a service professional determines that's the problem, you may be better off buying a new microwave. Capacitor and diode parts cost much less, but remember, you'll be paying for the expertise to have them installed correctly and safely. It may still make more sense to buy a new microwave, especially if it's a simple countertop model.

Not heating


most likly it is the mag and the diode. it should be covered for ten years after you bought the unit so check into that. you will have to pay a ge authorize servicer to replace it though but parts should be covered and still cheaper than a new microwave
