GE Spacesaver XL 1650 microwave shuts off after a few seconds

When using a timed cooking power setting (level is not a factor), the microwave will start, then shut down (complete reset, like a power failure) after a few seconds. Fan runs, but the screen will blip just before it resets (shuting down). Using the express cooking settings it works fine. Heats/cooks great, turntable works fine.

Could this be the control panel assy? Or, some other failure?

The mag's little cooling fan probably broke loose and fell off the fan motor's shaft. The fan keeps the mag cooler. The machine shuts down when the mag gets too hot because the fan blade is just lying in there, Needs to be glued back on the shaft after the shaft is roughed up a little. NO other parts needed. I used contact cement to hold the fan to the shaft. Its located right behind the control panel. It's not difficult to repair.

How do I set the power at 50%?


After first setting the cook time---then hit the power level button and hit the number 5 (for 50%) and then start. Power level can also be changed while running by hitting power level button and selecting 1 through 10. For example level 3 is 30% for defrosting.

How do you set the power level? The model number is: JVM1730DM1WW The serial number is: MM901698B


Assuming your touch pad is working properly, press Time Cook (for cooking) or Time Defrost (for defrosting) and then type in the length of time that you want the microwave to operate. Then press Power Level and type in a number from 1-10. Finally press Start. Depending on the GE microwave, the Power Level button may be above 2 or to the left of 0. (I've seen both keypad designs depending on when and where the microwave was manufactured.) If you press Power Level before setting the cooking time, the unit will reset when you press Time Cook or Time Defrost.

GE has the manuals for some of their microwaves on their site. See http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/ and enter the model number in the search engine.

I hope this helps.

Light's on, plate rotates, no heat


When the microwave works properly but just doesn't heat, then the magnetron is bad and will need to be replaced. You can get the part and the diagram at partselect . com or repairclinic . com

Model JVM1650WH02 will shut off about 2 seconds or less into cook time. everything else works such as light and clock and sometimes the wave will cook.


magnetron is leaking internally, do not use until magnetron is replaced. the mag creates interference with the control board and resets it

My spacesaver dated September of 2004 shuts off


I solved the problem by buying a new microwave and it was not a GE. I feel that GE should have had a recall on this problem, since it seemed to be a major problem in their system. I will never buy another GE product.

GE Spacesaver doesn't heat


if you are as lucky as i was...i have a ge spacesaver model jvm130...same problem. first unplug unit and check fuse on the "power control module". if fuse is ok...unscrew the screws holding the "power control module" in place...carefully tilt module and see if a solder joint needs to be re-soldered. my problem was the solder joint under the front plug (5 large wire plug). you may have to unplug the three connectors to the board to get access to bottom. this is the second time i had to re-solder...last one was several years ago though. best of luck tennisrme

WHEN PRESSING COOK TIME OVEN CLICKS ON FOR ONE SECOND AND RESETS CLOCK


Please try on some other power point as if there is loose contact or sparking in point which cause to switch off as soon as you start because of heavy current drawn by oven and clock also resets. If not solved even then must have some short circuit or over loading in timer circuit or magnetron. in this case you have to call for a service engineer.
