Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
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.

My solution is to never buy a GE APPL ever again. my GE side by side fridge water line freezes and the microwave shuts off after 3 seconds. i have complained to GE but they will not help me except for discounted parts(no labor hhelp). also remember about 3 months ago when the dishwashers were catching fire? My GE appl. are only 6 years old, btw
