My microwave GE model # JVM1440WH04 spacemaker has no heat coming out of it. My husband heated microwave lasagna in it last, everything works except for the heat, any solutions?


Push the microwave door tightly closed. The computer will not start cooking until the door is closed for safety reasons. Some models of microwave will give a warning on the screen if the door is open.
2

Ensure you have programmed a heat setting, entered a cooking time and pressed the "Start" button on the microwave's keypad. Check that the microwave is not set to "Defrost" mode.
3

Unplug the microwave and wait for one minute. This measure will reset the microwave's internal computer if it has frozen or scrambled. Plug the microwave back in and try again.
4

Ensure the keypad lock mode is inactive. Most microwave ovens have a lockout feature that prevents children from starting the microwave while unsupervised. Lockout mode is usually deactivated by holding down the button that bears a padlock symbol

Cuts off when gets too hot


inside your microwave is a heat censor, if it cuts the microwave off then its to hot for safty have a good look round the back of it to check that the air vents are all clear and that a good air supply can get all around it when its cooking food,,, iv seen so many microwaves tucked away into a small place, and they will all cut out when they get to hot,,,1100 watts gets very hot too!

I ran the microwave with nothing in the oven (obviously by mistake). Now it won't heat the food. Timer, clock, etc works. Is there a simple part that I can replace to solve this problem or have I killed...


You can replace the magnetron tube and , the heating will be restored. this is repairable.

Most magnetron tubes will run in the 120 to 140 dollar range.

Standard re-heat time value for GE jes1142sj microwave oven is 120 seconds. Is there a way to re-program and lower that time value from the keypad?


No, that is preset in the microprocessor.

You can always enter the amount of time you want instead:

Press Cook Time (or Time Cook) then each digit of the time you want, then Start.
