GE Profile microwave JVM1660SB 003 buzzing/crackling sound

I have a GE Profile Microwave model JVM1660SB 003 and it is approximately 5 years old or more. There is sort of a buzzing/crackling sound (loud) while in use-- all with microwave-able stuff only. It also smelled like something burning afterwards. This has happened on a few occasions now.

By "powered off" can I assume you mean that it is plugged in and at idle, not cooking, just showing the clock?

If so, I'd say your control board is failing.

If my assumption is wrong, please write back with more details.

We regularly repair these control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week with a one-year guarantee.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your model number) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Under microwave lights stoped working for GE JVM1660SB 005


We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid with a one year guarantee.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan, cooling fan, turntable, and/or inside light operation, too.

Details of our service are at our Web site, along with a video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Oven stopped heating; everything else seems to be working. i dont notice difference in sound when turned on model JVM1642BB 003 man date july 2000


The symptom that you have described sounds like the magnatron has failed, the microwave oven looks to be approx. over 9 years old, at that age and with a failed magnatron it is not cost effective to replace the part, it would be best to replace the microwave oven at this point. Good luck!
