    My model is a GE OTR JVM1653sh01. It is micro is 4 years old and this just started yesterday. My problem is similar, but I wouldn’t say it resets. When I push any combination of commands from “popcorn” or just hitting the “30 second” to warm something; it starts, the display flickers and the unit turns off. The display goes to alien script, (all letters are on at once). The display then tells me to “push clock” and I have to go through the whole restart sequence. So far, after 2-3 times it will work, so here I am trying to find a solution.

    Same exact problem. Is this common for GE microwaves that are only 3.5 years old?

Dear friends..

The problems you have described have to do with preprogrammed computer circuit boards that cannot be serviced except by GE authorized service persons. Since these ovens are out of warranty I am sorry to say you need to replace them. Service on these units would be at least twice as expensive as a new one.

GE profile model JVM3670BD001 won't heat up


The magnetron (the part that heats the food) may be bad or the circuitry to the magnetron may have burned out. Basically my advice is that if you have no electrical expertise, it isn't worth fixing. The magnetron if bad, costs almost as much as a new microwave. If you open it up (make sure it has been unplugged for a few hours and don't seen any obvious burnt parts, then most likely the magnetron is done and a new microwave is the way to go.

Let me know how this works out for you.

In the cases I've seen, the fan starts operating and sounds like the oven is cooking. This is usually caused by one or more of the interlock switches being out of adjustment.

Have GE JVM2050 over the range microwave, which stopped heating food and water since this morning. All other functions including light, key pad, clock, turntable work normal. The magnetron sound also


if everything works except the heating, it is most likely the mag tube is on its way out.........that is the most common reason for it not too cook.......since the microwave is a GE and it is 3.5 years old, i would say you are better off buying a new microwave, the mag tube starts at around $70.00 and up + the labor it costs too have a service person put it in........around another $60.00

JVM2050 Doesn't cook food sometimes


Not the magnetron if intermittent. Probably a bad smartboard. Easy to replace if you know the basic precautions to take.

Microwave won't come on


I am a recently retired appliance engineer of 20 years, i am reluctant to help with microwaves because of the dangers, the store electric even when unplugged, but it sound just like an internal fuse, these are special quick blow types, can be bought from most electronic high store shops, and replacements must be exact match, if a replacement blows there is another fault and don't recommend self repair work with safety and remove the plug first etc oh the fuse is just inside following the mains wire in, and normally on a small circuit board if i have helped please rate me
