If the fan doesn't work the magnetron may overheat and burn out. Look for a seized motor.
The light may be just a blown lamp.
Hope that helps.

I have a GE JES831WB 001 microwave that I'd love to fix. The light, clock & timer are working, but that's all - no fan nor heating. Any suggestions?


The door switches are often a problem, one or two are probably defective which would cause the symptoms that you are describing.

Buzzing sound... Turntable stopped. food heats up but uneven. No microwave fan when heating.. no light inside expensive fix?? Unit is 10 years old


If the microwave oven is 10 years old then it is time to consider a new unit, by your description it is going into cascade failure where different parts have stopped working, the buzzing sound is the magnetron warning you, it is about to fail. The fans job is to keep the magnetron cool while it is running.

Most likely you have a magnetron problem. Easy to replace (DYI) but make sure the high voltage capacitor is fully discharged first against the case.

Noise while not running


don;t worry;
all you need to do is lubricate the fan bearings with light machine oil and make sure the fan is not hitting anything

It looks like the part of your computer board on microwave which responsible for controlling light and fan stop working. In this case you have to replace computer board.
