GE Microwave JE1660GB won't heat?

My microwave sounds like it is working but, it does not heat? I read one thread where the magnetron may be the cause? Is this something that is difficult to replace?

I've never looked at the "guts" of any microwave but what you could do is see if you can get help on the web from GE. You'll need to see if you can even get the part from someone, and then figure out what you have to do to replace it. It's possible that it's on a circuit board.

Not that difficult to replace, however, is it worth it? I looked up the part on for model number JE1660GB002......$160.00. Without testing the power to the magnatron and knowing that it is the defective part, it may be $160 spent that didn't fix the problem.
