Question about GE JVM1660 Microwave Oven
GE mod.# JVM1160BB008, DYI repair or best left to serviceman??
I would suspect a shorted high voltage rectifier diode or failed magnetron, in the order.
Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:
http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html (if it is NOT shorted, it's probably fine)
http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/mag_test.html (continuity can be good even though it is bad!)
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
There should also be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
