SOURCE: how do I set the clock on a GE Spacemaker microwave oven?

You can get the manual here.

http://www.retrevo.com/s/GE-JVM1640SJ-Microwaves-review-manual/id/1080ci954/t/1-2/

But usually you just press the clock button to set

Good Luck and Please Rate Fixya!

SOURCE: My spacemaker microwave just completely stopped

It may be the fuse, or the oven cavity's thermal cutout / thermostat or the magnetron's thermal cutout / thermostat.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number
here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, & testing.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Accessing some components for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

FixYa's Web site is currently not notifying us when replies to our Clarification Requests are posted, so please reply directly to me with your full number from the tag on the unit so I can help you with free do-it-yourself tips and/or an estimate.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Has power to unit but nothing works, ie. oven, clock, timers, etc


If you don't see any light in the display or from the light bulb inside it you probably need to replace the fuse inside the microwave, it should be by the place where the cord goes in the microwave.

Seems like microwave is locked on clock


You have to set a time (any time) to use.

Press CLOCK, press number 2 then 2 then 2 again and then press CLOCK again. Does it say 2:22?

Everything should now work.

Do not run Empty, do not use any metal in there and do not use alot (MW kills all the vitamins and nutrition in food - like eating MUD for your body) .... and don't forget to reset the CLOCK ;-)

After changing a blown oven light, the clock works but nothing else turns on, including the fan, light, microwave


This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.
