Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
I saw you suggested putting a microwave on a test bench and disconnecting the lamp - how do I do that ?
Also you mentioned something about a stuck stirrer - how can I check that ?
A test bench will have known-good power, but disconnectable and on a breaker and metered, for example. The lamp will be disconnected by opening the thing up (hence, the workbench setting) and removing the lamp circuit connections in whatever way is most convenient.
The stirrer is often integrated with the output from the magnetron to the oven cavity; it's a microwave component that literally spins as the thing runs, and since the oven light is commonly on the same side easy to see moving or evidenced by changes in the back reflections from its vicinity. That is, you would notice some periodic change in the internal oven illumination from the stirrer's motion, which might have stopped around the same time the hum started....
