Question about GE JVM1660 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

No power... I have a GE spacemaker profile microwave/hood - model JVm1660BBC. The unit is currently not receiving power (I think??). The background leading up to the problem... my gas went out due to a storm so I had no heat in the house.. brrr. I turned on the stove for some heat and it was on for app. 2 hours. I think the heat may have "fried" something in my microwave/hood. It worked for app. an hour after I turned the heat off and then went dead. Any ideas? I have looked for a reset button but have not found one. I have checked the power outlet so know that that is working. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Merry Christmas, Liz

Re: No power...

If the stove was on without the hood fan's being on, it could have put too much heat in the "innards" of the microwave. It may have opened the thermostat or thermal fuse located inside - either on the chassis of the microwave or or the magnetron. It will look something like the one in the attached photo. For helpful exploded view diagrams and to order any needed parts, you can visit the GE parts Web site or the Sears parts Web site at or (the 3 is correct) In my profile, you can find a link to my site, where you can find critical safety & disassembly tips. Post back if you need more help.

My microwave GE Profile Spacemaker 2.0 keypad does not work, I unplugged it and reconnected it and it works at times for a while then it stops again.

You have a failing membrane keypad.

To help you further, I would need your brand and the full model number from the tag on the unit.

It's best to repost a new message to FixYa or contact me directly.

Sorry Seanna, but I have been getting a lot of problems with GE microwaves. You can call customer care at 800-432-2737, but out-of-warranty repairs are very expensive. Sounds like your problem may be door latch circuitry which requires service. If your unit is old, consider replacing it as prices are very reasonable.

GE Profile Spacemaker Microwave - JVM1660BBC

The turntable has a small motor underneath it that rotates the glass tray. You could have a motor that is going bad, or the plastic spindle (what the glass plate sits on) could be slipping. You can access the motor through the bottom panel. Be careful to make sure the microwave is unplugged for attempting any repairs inside. There is potentially as much as 14,000 volts in the high voltage network around the magnetron. Let me know if this helps.
