My over there range microwave is not getting heat. It does everything else the timer starts it rotates the light comes on it just won't heat up and there is no sound it's just quiet aside from when you press a button but the fans don't start up.
For model number jvm6172df1bb
Hi Steve, Thank you for the question.Unfortunately, I cannot say for sure what the issue might be as it could be a number of things. The most common parts are the Diode or the Magnetron. If you have a multi meter you can test them.The magnetron should have a reading of less than 1 ohm resistance across the two terminals, and an "open" circuit between each terminal and chassis ground. The diode/rectifier should have a resistance reading in one direction only, no resistance, or resistance in both directions indicate a faulty diode.You will have to make sure that the appliance is unplugged before starting your repair. Be aware that the high voltage capacitor in your appliance may still retain a charge even after being unplugged. It is recommended that an experienced professional should handle the internal electrical parts inside of your microwave. You will have to remove the Vent Grille and the outer control panel so that you can get to the little metal grille that covers the top right hand area where your diode is. This is where you have to be extremely careful as the diode is very close to the high voltage capacitor. To avoid getting shocked you can use a part of needle nose pliers but ONLY if they have an insulated handle. You can touch the metal part to the high voltage capacitor to release any held charge. Be very careful not to touch any of the metal as you are doing this. If you feel that you are not able to do a repair like this, I do recommend that you call a technician. Once you have made sure the area is safe for you to work, you can then unscrew the diode from it's place. Hope this helps!

Microwave was working fine. Then next time it had a louder humming sound than normal with no heat. Everything else worked including fan at all speeds.
For model number Pvm1870sm1ss
Hi Rich , Thank you for the question. I suggest testing the Diode with a multi meter to check for continuity. You can also check the fuse to see if it had blown. If the diode and fuse are both ok you may need to replace the Magnetron.This part is used to generate microwave energy/heat. Hope this helps!

Our microwave turns on and the timer counts down, but there is no heat and the turntable won't rotate. If i slam the door, then it works for a while. However, this does not work now either. Could you tell me what parts i need to repair our microwave?
For model number PVM1870SM3SS
Hi Todd, Thank you for your question. I would suggest testing the micro switches in your door. Because you had to slam your door to get the appliance to work at one point in time, those seem to be the most likely problem. You could also check your fuse and your diode as well. If all of those parts are checking out fine, it may be your magnetron that is the issue. Good luck with your repair.

I checked the diode with ohm meter and it appears open in both directions. Is this normal?
For model number JVM3670FB08
Hello Dennis, Thank you for the question. This part should only allow power to go one way only. Hope this helps!

How do i remove vent grill, pull straight out or slide? Don't want to damage
For model number JVM1750SM1SS
Hello Carl, thank you for your question. If you use a step ladder or chair and look at the top of the microwave, there will be two screws that hold the vent grille into place. Those screws will have to be removed and then the grille can be pulled toward you and removed from the unit. I hope this helps!

My microwave will not heat. Where is the diode located on this model?
For model number JVM6175SF1SS
Hi Richard, Thank you for the question. In order to get to the Diode you will need to remove the cabinet of the microwave. Once it is removed you can look at the top right hand side just above the control and the Diode will be located there. Hope this helps!

My microwave quit heating up and is now louder than normal. Could this be the diode?
For model number JVM1850SM4SS
Ho John, Thank you for the question. I would definitely start with the Diode.This part allows power to go one way only and when defective the Magnetron will not create heat. If this did not fix the issue then the Magnetron, PartSelect Number PS1019593 will need to be replaced. Hope this helps!

Hello, Thank you for your question. You will want to check into the door switches. We hope this helps.
