    Default Microwave countsdown/lights up but no cooking

    Model Number: JE1590WC
    Brand: GE

    Hi, yesterday my Microwave was working, and today it doesn't cook at all. It lights up inside/spins, and counts down, but it is not actually engaging the cooking mechanism. Does anyone know what the problem is? Bad magnatron?
