GE spacemaker microwave stopped heating

Our GE spacemaker microwave, model number JVM1653BH01, mfrd 11/2003, (1.58 kw, 2450 MHx output). suddenly stopped heating. The light still comes on, and the turntable rotates, but no heat. A neighbor said it was one of the fans, but we think it might be a fuse. Any suggestions?

I have a GE Over the oven microwave Model JVM1660BB. When heating it had started making a low humming noise. I could open the door and then close it, and the noise stopped. Now the oven won't heat at all. the light comes and the fan works. Jimbo

If it is working but not heating, then test the high voltage capacitor,the rectifier diode.or the magnetron. If all this are fine, test the control board.

The diodeand capacitors can be tested. The capacitor must be allowed discharge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, evenif power is off.Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Before replacing the magnetron test also the control board.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.



All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.

Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.

Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts.

You can also order from MicrowaveSvc , they also provide parts.

You may have a fuse that burned out. not everything runs on the same circuit . If its not the fuse than its probably the mega-tron, and that's big money. Check the fuse first. good luck DFD

GE SpaceMaker Microwave suddenly stops while heating


I had same problem last week. My GE JVM1650 Spacemaker stopped after a few seconds of heating. Owned 16 months, manufactured Jan 2005. It was the magnetron, which was replaced yesterday. The magnetron has a 10-year warranty, but I had to pay $161.00 for labor by a GE technician. The call-out fee was waived at my request. I don't know what that amount would have been, but I can't believe the $161.00 for what was about 1/2 hour labor once diagnosed. Good Luck!
