GE Spacemaker microwave no heat


Hi
Not sure of your technical ability and the tools you have at hand
I Googled repairing Microwave ovens and looked at a few You tube videos
Microwave ovens are really very simple devices anyone with any technical ability should easily be able to repair them
Safety is always a concern 2.4Gig radiaton and high voltage electricty at 60Hz
If the turntable moves, the lamps come on, the display works, and still not heat
There are only a few items that are left
The Capacitor - looking at your model they are asking $49.00 for a capacitor which you can get at a high end electronics store for $5.00
The HV Diode - I see they are asking $57.00 for the diode again I paid less than $3.00 for mine - if you are willing to solder and crimp wires
The transformer
The Magnetron
Several simple easy checks for each of the items
Mine turned out to be the diode being shorted - Sharps parts wanted as much as $30.00 for the assembly
I replaced the diode with a higher voltage temperature and current rated diode which cost me less than $3.00

Don't forget the door switches, the pcb board to see if it is putting out voltage, and thermal fuses
