Is the plastic fan available to fit on the GE WB26X10042 fan assembly?
Answer Hello Bill,
Unfortunately the blower wheel in part number WB26X10042 does not come as a separate part and would have to be replaced as an assembly.
The microwave will start up, but not heat anything up, all other functions work, lights, clock, etc. Thanks
Answer Hi Michael. I would use the digital capacitor Tester / Volt/ohm meter part # TJMA-DM1.You can only voltage check the control board out put at the primary terminals of the transformer. It should read 120 vac. The output of the transformer is NOT measurable. Test the high voltage diode part # WB27X1160.http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html. Then you need to remove the magnetron part # WB27X10017 to see if there is a burnt top emitter port or a cracked surrounding inner magnet. That should ohm out to 0-1-ohms and not shorted out. Thank you.
When you push the exhaust fan button there is a "humming" and the fan "jerks" back and forth very quickly. When you give the fan a little push, it begins to turn smoothly and quietly. Capacitor or something else? Thank you.
Answer Hello Jay. I believe the fan motor WB26X10042 will be the issue. You could try the capacitor WB27X10170, but I very rarely see a capacitor fail without a complaint of a lightning strike being involved. I hope this helps you solve the issue! Have a great day!
