Question about GE JVM1440 Microwave Oven
My GE jvm1440, which we've had for maybe 15 mos. or so, just started making a loud humming noise while running. It doesn't heat, even though everything else appears to be working normally. The humming noise starts a few seconds after the microwave starts. Please help! Thanks.

Thank you for the information. I too have had the same problem with my microwave but mine is the model before this one. I am starting to wonder if it is just GE appliances in general that are the problem.

Word has it that many of these models have a defect which causes the microwave energy to be reflected back to the magnetron, causing damage to the magnetron, and eventually damaging the high-voltage diode too. Also, the fuse or the magnetron theral cutout / thermostat can eventually blow, too. There is a replacement magnetron and stirrer kit available. I would definitely call the GE Answer Center at 800-626-2005 about this. It's not considered a recall, but a "campaign". They may pick up part of the cost. It's not cheap.
