Question about GE JVM1850 1000 Watts Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Microwave only works when door is pulled but not opened

GE built-in microwave, maybe 5 years old. Will not run except when I pull the door slightly (not to the point of opening it). I put two velcro tabs inside the door and the microwave then works a few times until the tab gets a bit flattened, then the microwave won't work again.

Viking Microwave door latch


Try pushing in on the door while pressing the door release latch;
Also, try pushing the door latch and reach under the front edge of the door and slightly pull as the latch is depressed.
Third option is use a suction cup, maybe from a GPS device on the glass portion of the door, pulling on it while you depress the door latch....let me know any problems or if I can help anymore.

The microwave turns on when the door handle is


Hello :

If there is any resetting button , then press it to reset your Microwave oven . If that didn't solve the problem , then I recommend you to replace it if that's possible or just take it to the service since you still have to guarantee .

good luck .

rate please !

It doesn't heat anymore. About 5 years old only.


Check the door safety switch. When they go bad, they oven doesn't know if the door is closed or not. Find them inside on the side opposite the hinge. They go bad because we (read "you and me" open the door with the oven running and that cooks the contacts on these little switches.

GE microwave won't turn off


Just checked the GE website. Had the same problem with my 5 year old microwave. GE website says to close and open the door quickly three times. First time I did this it didn't work. Second time I closed the door with some significant force and reopened it more quickly. Worked. Unplugged the microwave, plugged it back in, still fine.

JVM1330 microwave only works when holding door handle toward us


You should first check your door switch mounts. My help file on door switches is here.

If that's not it, I would suspect that you have a shorted main relay on your control board, which i can repair. Details here.

FixYa doesn't notify me when there's a response, so if you have other questions, please contact me directly.

Repair or replace?


MICROWAVES ARE MADE TO BLOW THE FUSE IF THERE IS A POSSIBLY OF DANGER--THAT'S A GOOD THING...SAFTY SWITCHES ARE MADE TO CLOSE(SOME UN-CLOSE) WHEN THE DOOR IS OPEN AND SHUT AND IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU DO HAVE A LITTLE DOOR PROBLEM---THE REPAIR SHOULD BE FIXABLE AND MAYBE REASONABLE,,MY GUESS COST-WISE ,,,75.00,,OF COURSE ,IT ALL DEPENDS ON THE SERVICE COMPANY--TRY AN INDEPENDANT SERVICER (NOT SEARS,ETC) GOOD LUCK TUNICA

How can it come on-but not really?


This is usually a bad door switch or door switch mount.

If it's less than one year old, it's under warranty and you should contact Frigidaire to get it fixed free.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

We appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
