Question about GE JVM1650 1000 Watts Microwave Oven
I saw the Service Bulletin for my model JVM1650 ser# GZ built April 2000. I heard an arching sound for years and the other day it stopped heating, everything else works still but the humming is a little different. I believe it is a 9yr warrenty on the magnetron.
Is the service bulletin still in effect and do you know what the approximate cost would be through GE. There is a $70 service fee, I know. Will they change for the labor also? If so, do you have a approx cost estimate. It looks like they will not do a concession for anything so I'm just trying to see if I should just buy a new microwave since it's almost 9 years old. If it's more than half the cost of a new one it doesn't make sense to me to fix and I'd rather not spend $70 just to find it out.
If it's been arcing for years, I would suspect your waveguide is damaged and cannot be repaired in addition to the magnetron.
You would have to pay labor. It's generally about $75 to visit you and $90 to do the work.
GE Customer Service is here in case you want to see if they will cover labor or replace the oven, but I doubt it.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
