The fan is located on the right side behind the key panel. I know this because I removed it while replacing the magnetron the other day. It is easier to get to than the magnetron. You take the black cover off. Then there is a silver cover with 3 screws covering the magnetron. Remove it and remove the front grill and one screw to the keypad, then you can reach the fan thru there.

i hope this helps!

Microwavemanual.com probably has a manual for this oven.

Microwave makes noise when on


All microwaves make some noise when running. Cooling fans, exhaust fans, turntable motor, transformer, and magnetron all make noise. I assume you mean some unusual noise. I need to know more about what kind of noise it is - a loud roar, a rattling sound, a high-pitch squealing sound, a "clunk-clunk" sound or what? By the way, a "klunk-klunk" sound is frequently caused by small debris stuck to the wheels of the turntable support tray. Try cleaning those wheels and the track they roll in.

Coleman EB15A - Buzzing noise from transformer area, no heat or fan


see this causes and proceed. God bless you
Magnetron If the microwave is loud or noisy only when cooking, the magnetron tube might be defective. The magnetron uses high voltage, high current DC power to generate the microwave frequency that cooks the food. Under normal circumstances the magnetron is nearly silent. However if it is damaged or nearly burned out it can begin emitting high pitched or growling noises. It's not normally dangerous to use a microwave oven when it makes these noises, but they are an indication that the magnetron is almost dead and will need to be replaced.

Exhaust Fan Motor If the microwave is loud when running the fan motor might be
Stirrer Motor If the microwave is loud or noisy the stirrer motor might be worn out. The stirrer is a metal blade which slowly turns around, deflecting the microwave energy in a random pattern inside the microwave oven. As the motor nears the end of its useful life it begins to make grinding noises. The microwave will not heat food evenly without this stirrer, the motor should be replaced.

Turntable Motor If the microwave is loud or noisy the turntable motor might be worn out. This is a common problem and relatively easy to replace.

The loud noise and no heat means that the magnetron has failed. It the part that generates the microwaves that heat the food. When it fails it shorts out, causing the transformer to heat up. That is what was causing the burning smell. The cost of a replacement magnetron is around $130-150 range so it may not make sense to have it fixed.

When there is no heat, but everything else seems to work, it means the magnetron circuit has failed. The magetron is the part the generates the microwaves that heat the food. When it fails, it makes a loud buzzing sound. The replacement part can cost as much as a new oven, so it not worth fixing. Get yourself a new oven.

GE SpacemakerXL JVM1443 stays on when door is closed


That's almost certainly a failed primary interlock (upper door switch) or its mount is bad.

See our file on info on door switch diagnosis and replacement.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

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.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

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