    JVM2070BH02 GE Profile SpaceMaker 2.0 OTR - magnetron

    I changed my magnetron on my JVM2070 and it has worked fine for almost 5 yrs but yesterday when I went to heat a cup of water on 2 min setting and it made a snap noise and water was cold (after 2 min). I tried again and water was hotter but it took at least 2.5 min to do what it did in 2 min...

    PVM1870DM1WW GE Profile 2007 No Power At All

    I just replaced the Magnetron and the Diode and now when I plug it up there is no power at all. Circuit breaker checked and it is working fine. Any idea why there is no reaction to the new things, was working fine until the last magnetron died.?

    KB6524PS Sharp drawer Microwave won't heat food, but magnetron gets hot.

    HV Diode shorted twice! Transformer, capacitor and magnetron seem ok.

    I have a Maytag convection/microwave combo (MMV6178AAW). I found a "shorted" diode (25 ohms both directions). I replaced the diode with a new one and it shorted again. I used a capacitive HV probe to measure the HV transformer output. I get 6.5kV pk-pk while disconnected from the rest of the...
