Question about GE JVM2050 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

GE JVM 2050BH001 does not heat but everything else works

I've had this microwave over for 4 years and has worked flawlessly until now. All the lights work, touchpad, turntables, and fan but it will not heat/cook food. I open it up and check both fuses (one for the entire unit and one I believe for the Magnetron). Last night I ran a test to see if it would heat just a 1/3 cup of water and after one minute, it gave me an error saying *error bad sensor*.

I am assuming it is the WB27X1170 gas sensor but worried if this isn't the only problem, how much more investment do I need to put into this. It's only 4 years old and I'd hate to throw this away.

Any help would be appreciated.

    Sorry, everything is working except the ability to actually heat/cook the item inside. I'll need to check the transformer for voltage.

Ge jvm 1653 won't heat


You've got a problem in the microwave circuit, which could be one or more of the following components -

1) HV diode
2) HV Capacitor
3) HV transformer
4) Magnetron

I am leaning to the diode, but it would take further investigation to determine for sure. Diodes are cheap, as if the capacitor, and replacing those first would not necessarily be in vain if it turns out to be the transformer or magnetron. And I would be most inclined to say it's the magnetron before I would think transformer.

Reply back what you find or if you have more questions.

Fisrt, check to be sure your missing cat it not inside the unit. IF the interior is dirty (splatters, grease, etc.) , it may inhibit the unit from working properly.
