Chances are you have a bad magnetron.

If it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years) but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

We're happy to help you and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

You have burned out the magnatron (heating element) which is common on GE microwaves. most service companies will charge about 200-250 to replace it

Microwave oven suddenly stopped working but the clock still lights up.


Good afternoon friend, I appreciate your post!

I understand that your Frigidaire microwave display is working but it is not heating up. Based off that information you could be seeing an issue with your magnetron or control panel. It is possible it could be a false miscommunication within the panel. I would try to reset your appliance you can do that by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker for ten minutes. If that step does not work could you please reply for additional assistance? I look forward to your response. -Matt

Sharp 1200w microwave seems to be tripping lightly (can hear clicking noises)and cause heating to be irregular


Clean the food off the inside top of the microwave Now,Or that noise you are hear will stop along with the microwave. The food gets on the Formica Squire which is how the micro waves heat your food. 1st unplug the Microwave then spray the inside of the unit with something like Fantastic or something strong and use glove so you don't burn you hand,Also if you have a scrub brush use it,And clean all the soap out and raise very well.

Ge spacemaker microwave jvm1640cj03 stopped heating. interior always clean. light, timer etc working.


If it stops heating and the other parts of the oven still work, the problem is with the magnetron circuit. If it makes a loud buzzing noise when you try to heat the food, then the magnetron has shorted out. The replacement cost for the magnetron is almost as much as a new oven, so it does not make sense to have it fixed. Sorry.

My Frigidaire microwave is less than a year old. It is making a loud noise while running. So it runs loudly but does not heat up food. Is there a simple fix or did I get a dud?


The symptoms of loud noise and no heat indicate a short in the magnetron or high voltage diode. Need to take it to a qualified repair, to figure out what the problem. The magnetron replacement can cost as much as a new oven. See what the warranty covers, maybe you might luck out.

Oven made loud pop. Now does not heat and is loud. Light goes on, turntable turns. No heating


Had the same problem. It was the high voltage rectifier. Bought replacement part at Sears online for about $16 (including shipping) and replaced myself. Not too difficult, but you need to be VERY CAREFUL to discharge the capaciter. You can even leave it mounted, while fixing it. Just remove upper plastic vent covering, which exposes the mounting screw for the control panel. Unscrew and slide the panel up to dismount. You will need to disconnect all the wire attachements to the control panel. I took a digital photograph to ensure I could reconnect exactly as it was originally arranged. The part is attached to the capacitor in the back of the unit - MAKE SURE THE CAPACITOR IS DISCHARGED FIRST.

A couple notes:
  • I had read other postings saying that other parts would probably need to be replaced, as their shorting likely caused the failure of this part. However, I traced the shorting to excess moisture - my wife was boiling a lot of pasta on the stove for an event. Once dried out, the short was gone.
  • The replacement piece is shaped a little differently and can obscure the internal fan. This can cause the unit to overheat and the circuit breaker to fail, which I found out the hard way (a much more difficult--yet still unexpensive--repair). I used some electrical tape to make sure it stayed out of the way.
It has been about two months since the repair and it is working well.

If it is working but not heating, then test the high voltage capacitor,the rectifier diode.or the magnetron. If all this are fine, test the control board.

The diodeand capacitors can be tested. The capacitor must be allowed discharge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, evenif power is off.Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Before replacing the magnetron test also the control board.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.



All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.

Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.

Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts.

You can also order from MicrowaveSvc , they also provide parts.
