Customer Question
I have an 11...

I have an 11 year old GE Microwave and it stopped hearing. Everything else works just no heat.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Sorry I had to go to another room to get that information.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

The model number is ***** SERIAL NUMBER 905481D MFG DATE AUG 2008

If everything else works fine except the microwave won't heat then the magnetron is faulty and needs to be replaced.
