GE Spacemaker JVM 131 Continuous Beep

I was boiling pasta on the stove below the microwave, and cooking a microwave vegetable packet in the microwave and the microwave began emitting a loud continuous beep, but continued to cook the vegetable packet. The only way to turn off the beep was to pull the plug. When doing so, the beep disipated. Sounded like potentially a capacitor problem.

When I plug it back in the beep starts again, full force.

Is the microwave dead?

    I have the same problem. Error message F3 displayed and a beep that only pauses for a couple of seconds and then continues. Only way to stop it is to unplug it. Tried to reset it. Do I need to replace the touch pad? I have the JVM3670WF001 over the range microwave.

    Was there an error code on the display?

    Like F3 maybe?

    What is the full model number, such as JVM131001, JVM131G01, JVM131K04, etc.?

It could easily be a bad line fuse and/or line filter. To access you will need to unplug the unit and remove the outside case. Inside the unit, where the A/C power cord comes in, there should be a small circuit card (part #237068) located somewhere with a fuse mounted on it. This is your input line filter board with line fuse. Replace the fuse, first and see if this fixes your problem. This is a 20amp appliance fuse that you can purchase at any hardware store. Make sure you place the cover back on the unit BEFORE you plug it in. It is not safe to have this area of the microwave exposed with power applied. High potentials in the 4,000 volt range are present! If the fuse does not correct your problem, the circuit card runs about $26.00. Good luck and hope this fixes your problem.

Mmmm it's so easy,
First disconect the power, take the cover off, moslitly there would be 5 screws and two tab's on the top.
inside on the right hand side the magnetron it's a sylver box measuring about 4 in x 4 in x 5 in. It will have a plasic cover moslitly that would have to be remove first then on the magnetron there is 4 crews and one connector.
It should fall downard after.
If you have a power supply after the secondary , that may also be your problem.

Regards

Bob

Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part (such as a shorted diode)

SOURCE: microwave shuts down after cooking three or four minutes

Your magnetron is overheating and tripping the thermostat, which interrupts power until it cools.

Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

SOURCE: We have an MMV5165AAB Microwave oven, installed

the unit inside the microwave that heats called the "magnetron" has gone bad or the circuits that power the magnetron have failed. if its under warranty still, send it back to the manufacturer. if not you can call some repair shops and see how much it would be to service it, but its most likely going to be cheaper to purchace a new microwave since they are relatively cheap these days. microwaves are throw away product now days, they dont make them to last anymore, i hope this helps and good luck to you

Is it true that the use of microwave ovens destory the neutriunts in the food or water that is reheated in them?


According to a recent 'Ask Umbra' column on Grist, there are three factors affecting nutrient loss when you cook vegetables: temperature, time, and water. "Nutrients tend to be both heat-intolerant and water-soluble," the article says, which means that any method that requires a) cooking at a high temperature for a long time, and b) uses a lot of water will result in the greatest nutrient loss. (So by this measure, boiling vegetables is likely the worst offender.) It goes without saying then that cooking at a lower temperature for a shorteramount of time and with less water would result in the least amount of nutrients lost, and that's what the microwave accomplishes.So where did this idea originate in the first place? According to Grist, in 2003 a study from Spain claimed that steaming broccoli in the microwave caused it to lose 97 percent of its antioxidants, while stovetop cooking only resulted in an 11 percent loss. But critics say the study used more water than would ever be necessary in a microwave, and thus the results were flawed.Basically, water, not the microwave, is the most important factor when cooking vegetables, according to Grist. The less water, the better:Steaming, for instance, is a fairly good option because the veggies have less contact with water. Even better: Cook your veggies in a stew or soup, and you'll be able to slurp those escapee nutrients up. Stovetop stir-frying or saut?ing is also a good choice, assuming you don't go crazy with the oil. Baking and roasting are yummy, but don't forget that long exposures to heat will zap some of the nutrients. Of course, other arguments against microwaves have to do with magnetrons and radiation levels, etc., which is a whole other topic. But as far as nutrient loss goes, if microwaving is your preferred choice for cooking vegetables, than cook on. Just watch the amount of water you use!

Fan comes on by itself and won't turn off.


Is it a micro hood? If so, and you're cooking on the stove below, it may be that the microwave is getting too warm. Some of them have an automatic fan the comes on when you're cooking below them - especially when boiling potatoes or something else steamy.

Kenmore elite microwave


Was it just the exhaust fan that came on? If so this is normal when cooking on the stove for long period of time without the fan running. The heat builds up under the microwave and eventually activates the fan.

How to replace door switch on advantium


Happened to my 2005 Advantium120 twice, both times after extended cooking/simmering on the cooktop (17" below). Solution was to leave unplugged for a good 48 hours (to dry out?) then plug in again and all is good. GE says to either raise the microwave 4" or stop boiling pasta on the stove, neither a good solution. Good luck!

New sanyo microwave, steam or smoke coming out when cooking from 1 minute


Steam is OK as it means whatever is in there is boiling furiously, it may need turning off at that point!
Smoke though means it has gone too far. Check the cooking times used and the recommended cooking times on the packet along with the adjustment for the power of your oven.

What happens if you operate your microwave with nothing in it?


The microwave tube still emits microwaves that bounce around inside the microwave which then hit the source of the microwaves - being the microwave tube, thus damageing the tube( It is like leaving an empty frying pan on the stove on high; the frying pan will burnt and of little cooking value.)

Oven turns off


Hi,

You are running the risk of damaging the Magnatron by doing this.

Check the packets you are using, you will have to reduce your power output.

This is because microwaves act by being absorbed by water. There is very little in popcorn and in fat. Once this has been evaporated, the microwave energy builds up (as it is still being produced - but not absorbed), and ends up cooking the magnatron itself.

I have seen countless posts on here after cooking popcorn!

More fun on the hob anyway - and cheaper to buy in bulk!
