    Q - My microwave seems to shut off every once in a while, what might be wrong?
    A - Make sure you hear the fan is still operating in your microwave. Next is to make sure the air intake grill on your microwave is not plugged up with air borne dust and dirt.

    Q - The microwave makes a loud "hum or buzz" noise but will not heat up the food?
    A - 9 times out of 10 this is usually this is a bad magnetron, the other time is sometimes a bad high voltage diode. See components section.



  • fixyy Nov 16, 2008

    Q - My microwave is running and sounds like it is working but will not heat up anything.
    A - Many thing can do this but, common things are....loose high voltage wire.....poor solder joint on board.....magnetron.....power relay.....



  • fixyy Nov 16, 2008

    Q - The microwave display counts down and the inside light is on,  but nothing is heating and the fan is not running.
    A - This most commonly is a bad door switch, other possible problems are a faulty relay or solder joint on the power module, but a bad door switch is most common.



  • fixyy Nov 16, 2008

    Q - My microwave went dead when I opened the door ( same problem as closed the door ).
    A - This often is a stuck or faulty door switch and it has blown the interior microwave fuse.



  • fixyy Nov 16, 2008

    Q - The fan in my microwave oven is not running will this hurt my microwave?
    A - YES, the fan cools the magnetron and electronics, take the microwave in for service, most fans are not too expensive to replace.



  • fixyy Nov 16, 2008

    Q - I burnt something in my microwave and now it is dead...help!
    A - The fuse inside the microwave may have blown, but more commonly the flame/oven thermostat has sensed the over cooked food and the flame/oven/cavity thermostat has opened up - Info on that

Microwave starts and runs 2 seconds and stops. Display is jibberish. After resetting date and time, it will again run 2 seconds and then shuts down again.

My control panel has locked and I can't unlock it.


If this is a GE Spacemaker model, you can lock or unlock the controls of the oven by pressing and holding the CLEAR/OFF button for 3 to 5 seconds. If this is not a GE Spacemaker, please post back with your correct MODEL NUMBER. I hope this information helps you.

My GE spacemaker microwave doesn't heat up foods. There is a slight bit of heat generated but not much. All timers, lights, etc. work normal. It is a GE model jvm1440. It is about 3 years old. The problem...


IT COULD BE A NUMBER OF THINGS RANGING FROM DIODES TO CAPACITORS TO YOUR MAGNATRON OR THERMOSTAST OR TRANSFORMERS. IT'S DIFFICULT TO DIAGNOSE WITHOUT SEEING THIS MICROWAVE. YOU MAY BE BETTER OFF GETTING YOURSELF A DIFFERENT ONE.

Ge spacemaker II microwave. sensor error lite comes on


Sounds to me like you have a bad magnetron tube. Call GE Factory Service as there is either a 5 or 10 year parts warranty. Or schedule a service call online at www.geappliances.com

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!
