Question about GE JVM1650 1000 Watts Microwave Oven

1 Answer

GE JVM 1650BB does not heat...

Hi ,

Everything else about the unit works perfectly and it heated just fine until 2 nights ago. Woke up next morning, put oatmeal in , and it came out cold after 1 minute whne it usually comes out to hot to eat!. It sounded a little different to me also, but not something so unusual that anyone else would really notice.

It's eight years old ( manufactured in July 1999) and I am fearing that the magnetron tube went dead. I unplugged/replugged the unit twice but still no luck. Anything else I can try???

    Every thing works, except no power

    The microwave has power, I set cook time...it lights up inside and the timer counts down but you can NOT hear anything running and it does not heat. It will be $99.95 just to pay someone to look at it - manufactured in July 2003 - worth fixing?

    I have the same problem. It does make a quieter noise, and NOTHING heats up. Could my tube be dead? My microwave isn't even 3yrs old (from mfg date) yet! Can anyone help? Or do i have to buy a new one?

    GE JVM Spacemaker 4 yrs old has same problem. Touchpad works, but when starting microwave, it is quieter now and makes sparking sounds inside. Worked fine yesterday, but hasn't worked since

    We had the same issue, worked fine this morning, now it won't heat. Everything looks fine.

    When you hit Start to cook, do the inside light and turntable come on?

    Sounding a little different is important.

    Any louder or new humming or buzzing noises? Is it louder or quieter than usual?

My oven heated fine 2 days ago and the kids tried to heat some sandwichs last night and it didnt heat. The table turns, clock counted down and power setting on level 10. I boiled water this morning to...


after several reviews of this microwave i have found that most people are not satisfied with the model or the company. And that it seems that your problem may consist with the magnetron not being installed correctly sometimes this happens at the factory but can only be replaced by a technician. they are supposed to carry them on their truck at all times. Youll have to call GE and schedule an appt with a tech. and from other testimonies that can prove to be difficult. sorry i couldnt have been of more help and good luck

I have a GE microwave, model JVM 3670 BF03. It is an above the range unit. The unit still has power, the clock, turnstyle and fan work fine, but it no longer heats food.


HI. in most cases, this will lead to a failed Heating device(magnetron tube).It would be wise to check the Magnetron cutoff fuse to be sure of its integrity. if the fuse is blown, simply replace it. if the fuse continues to show continuity, replace the magnetron.

(((The fuse is located inside the unit along side the magnetron)))
