Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Nothing works I have a GE spacesaver microwave oven that worked fine one moment, and then the next time we went to use it, nothing was working. There is no display, the keypad doesn't work, and the light doesn't come on. It's like it's getting no power, but I checked the power outlet and the outlet works fine.

My GE Spacesaver microwave is not working...no power at all.


Usually a Thermal protection (Like Circuit Breaker) this should be tested with Multi Tester. If this open, no Electrical Power goes to the Primary Winding of your High Voltage Transformer and will not power up your magnetron therefore no heat inside the Microwave Oven.

My GE spacesaver oven JVM230 quit, like a fuse blew. No over the stove light, no exhaust fan, nothing. I checked the circuit breaker and pluged in an appliance and it worked. The plug is okay. Jim


This is almost certainly a blown thermistor. This device is located at the air outlet on the microwave. This is a thermally sensitive resistor that cuts power if the unit overheats for safety. It can fail because of age also. Replace with the save value unit. You can get this part from electronics stores like Radio Shack.

GE Spacesaver over the range microwave oven


GE Microwave ovens, and Microwave Ovens produced by GE but released under different brand names, have had several power problems for the past 20 years. Because it is so easy to sell parts and charge outrageous rates for repair GE never corrected the problems. They just continued it in the next model. They found that you would most likely purchase a new unit rather than paying $75. for a service charge, and $150. for labor plus parts (if out of warranty period).
Most failures were cold solder connections on the power relay board. These would come completely dis-connected after arcing and burning away the solder. Could be 1 month, could be years, but they knew it would happen. This power relay board feeds 120volts to the LV (low voltage) side of the HV (high voltage) Transformer. No High Voltage,,No cook. Everything seems to run normal, but if you listen carefully you will not hear the low tone from the HV Transformer. Over my thirty years in the business I have re-soldered rather than replace so many I couldn't count.
Next to that, a defective Magnetron.
