SOURCE: Please Help my GE Microwave produces no heat!!

Most of the time it seems to be the magnetron. The Magnetron is what heats the food, when you remove the magnetron sometimes you will see signs of wear like a black or brown spot on the tube sometimes there is even a hole burned through. A cheap place to find these part is Global Micro Parts in Dallas TX. Usually Magnetrons are about $30 - $45 and shipping is only 7.95 there web site is www.allapplianceparts.com

I have a GE microwave with the message sensor error


Hi,
On GE models, "SENSOR ERROR" appears on the display when:
  • Using the sensor feature, the door was opened before steam could be detected. Do not open the door until stream is sensed and time is shown counting down on the display.
  • Steam was not detected in the macimum amount of time. Use Time Cook to heat for more time.
Thanks.

GE JE1640GA does not heat, the control is working but when you put the time and start its not working.


The latch on the door of my microwave did not make a connection with the sensor inside.  The GE mechanic fixed this problem by slightly pushing the door upwards (with simple manual force).  That's it. It works fine now.
