Resolved Question:

I have a GE microwave convection model jvm1490. The unit is having trouble powering on. It seems o be surging. You can plug it in and sometimes it will come on and work fine, other times the light will be dim, then bright. When it is on, it works. It also is making a hum when the power is low. Any ideas?

maybe the capacitor is going out just guessing this is a hard problem and random not to common

pleas do not poke around in the microwave as it carries a charge of 5000volts and can kill you even if not plugged in
