    When you hit Start to
    cook, do the inside light and turntable come on?




    Any unusual noises? Is
    it louder or quieter than usual?




    These answers will help
    me judge whether it's in the high voltage
    section (magnetron, transformer, or diode) or the control section
    (door switch or control board relay or connection).

Sounds like the problem is in the high voltage. Most common would be magnatron, capacitor and diode. For safety reasons this should be checked by a professional. Look in your owners manual because some high voltage parts have a longer warranty than 1 yr.

You may have a failure of the H.V. rectifier. I would recommend that a trained technician replace this part due to the high voltage potential.

SOURCE: Everything works except heat

Sounds like you've had a failure in the microwave portion of the unit.

Microwave not heating problems when the timer/controller board appears to function properly, are related to the following components -

1) Diode
2) Capacitor
3) Transformer
4) Magnetron

SOURCE: GE Profile Microwave will not heat

Unfortunately, there is no way to tell which part the microwave needs without opening it up for examination. There are a few parts that, if defective, would prevent the oven from heating.

  • a high voltage transformer which passes energy to the magnetron
  • a magnetron which converts high-voltage electric energy to microwave radiation
  • a magnetron control circuit (usually with a microcontroller)
This is NOT a repair that you would want to attempt yourself. The labor for the repair would cost a minimum of $50 and shouldn't exceed $100. You'll also have to pay for the necessary part if it's still available from the manufacture or their parts distributor.

Anything can be fixed, it all depends on how much it will cost to repair. Sometimes it just pays to buy another microwave oven they have come down in price quite a bit

My jvm3670sk02 ge profile over the counter microwave makes "zapping" noises when in use. Some flashes come from the top under the circle area. What is this and is it expensive to fix? Can i do...


That's usually grease buildup behind the stirrer cover.

The cover and the metal behind it should be cleaned with a mild, non-ammonia cleaner.

See you owner's manual for information. If for some reason you don't have yours, you can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

Any damaged parts will have to be replaced.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

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

Our GE PROFILE JVM3670SK02 microwave stopped working. When you turn it on it only works for approx 30 sec and shuts off and the clock works but doesn't hold real time. Do you know what I need to do?


I have the same model and my problem is that after I cook something and clsoe the door, the microwave stays on, carosel not turning fan is blowing and light is on. Repairman told me that I am not closing the door correctly and that is the problem. He tshowed me how the door is not solid and you can close the bototm part of the door (latching it) but not the top and that is why it is staying on. I say it is a manufacturer's design defect. He charged me the $99.95 service charge. What a rip off.
