GE JES1142WD02 I would bet. If the circuit breaker and outlet powering the microwave are good, then the most common internal causes of a "dead" microwave are the fuse, a thermostat, or a control board defect. You can usually find local servicers in the Yellow Pages under Appliance Repair. I would pick the shop whose people sound most concerned, professional, courteous, helpful, and knowledgeable. Good luck.

GE microwave model JVM1750DM does everything except heat food. Worked this morning fine.

Chances are the magnetron has failed, "heats food" the other possibility is the high voltage capacitor and diode. Repairs will approach the cost of a new microwave oven.

My microwave/convection oven (a GE unit model JES1290SK) started beeping every few seconds and displaying F6 on the control panel. I unplugged it and waited several minutes and when plugged in it displays...

The technical sheets in my files do not list F6 on the error code chart for GE microwaves.

Generally, these are the error codes possible on GE microwaves:

F1 open thermal sensor (convection models)
F2 shorted thermal sensor (convection models)
F3 key panel shorted for more than 60 seconds
F4 open humidity sensor
F5 shorted humidity sensor

There should be a "mini-manual" (technical 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.


At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

No display, open the door lights on

Chances are that's a bad connection on the control board, which we repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases in about a week or so.

But for a common counter top microwave such as this, if it's out of warranty, it would probably be more economical to replace it.

If it's less than one year old, it would be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

Constant rattling noise during operation

possibly the "stirrer" motor - this is in the top and turns a metal reflecting ring to disperse the microwaves around the oven more evenly. About $70 on GE site for my oven.

GE JVM1650SH Stainless Steel 1000 Watts Microwave Oven?

It sounds like you may have had an issue with a high voltage part such as the magnetron, diode, or transformer. It's also possible that you had an arcing stirrer. I would also check to see if your model is covered by / affected by this bulletin: If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety & disassembly info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number (without the suffix) here:

GE JE1540WW03 Microwave Oven

When you remove the door, it's absolutely critical to get it back on exactly as it was, or microwave leakage can result. I only recommend removal of the door in cases of several damage or when separate door parets are not available. Door parts should be available for this model. You can find an exploded view of this model by entering your full model number at the GE parts Web site at: The exploded view should give you some idea of how it comes apart and goes back together.
