GE JES1456WFC001 - will not turn on

Microwave turned off. I noticed that the interior was very hot and the glass plate very very hot. It cooled off and I plugged it in but it does not turn on.

Any ideas?

    Hmmmmmmm! I was hoping it was a fixable problem. Oh well. It's 5 years old so I suppose it's time to buy a new one.



    Thanks!

One of two items could be the problem. The Magnetron unit could have overheated causing the wiring to burn or there was a short circuit in the wiring or solid state circuit board. Niether of these are field servicable. If the unit is under warranty contact GE customer care, otherwise you need to replace it.

    The newer ovens have great features and they are very reasonable. Have a nice day.

While cooking popcorn lastnight in the microwave the glass plate that rotates snapped in half. My husband picked it up right away so it wasn't hot. He put in a microwave safe plate into cook more popcorn...


All that is required to crack/break an item that is microwave safe is a fine crack or deep scratch. Water will expand so quickly as the microwave energy heats up the water, it turns to steam and cracks the plate with the pressure build up.

GE model J KP85B0A3BB over range will not heat up. Both control panels for microwave and range work, interior light comes on when door opens, and glass plate will turn...


The most likely problem is the magnetron, it works with the high voltage capacitor and diode which can be a factor. The three work together to generate the high voltage that heats the food. If the repairs are done by a professional the cost will be high when you consider parts and labor.

GE JES1456WFC001 microwave oven turns on by itself


You are correct. The keypad is failing.

If you might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

If you would like to have us do this for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs, assuming we can get the part for this Canadian model.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
