Question about GE JVM1650 1000 Watts Microwave Oven
The GE tech who came to inspect it says I need to replace the High Voltage Transformer and Motor Drive for the turntable. Can someone please give me instructions on how to do this? I ordered the parts but the labor GE is charging is high. Thanks in advance.
Drive for the turntable is quite easy to do, as for the transformer people have been killed trying to replace key components and if you seriously have no understanding of electrics and electronics then i'd pay the labour costs (its called high voltage for a reason) even with the oven off therecan be upto 3000v still within the oven and believe me it hurts when it shocks you, also with the transformer faulty it could have caused damage to the diode, mag and capacitor not always but sometimes and these are easier to check when changing hv transformer!!!!!

The magnetron may have either failed or
is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.
