Microwave - Microwave Runs But Does Not Heat

If the microwave runs, but does not heat, it could be one of many parts.

For safety reasons, GE offers no do-it-yourself repair advice on microwave ovens due to:
  • Safety requirements due to high voltage (capacitor hold a high voltage charge even after it has been unplugged)
  • Complexity of electronic circuitry.
  • Special equipment needed to make diagnosis.
GE urges our consumers NOT to attempt any microwave repairs.
