Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
I put frozen sausege in the microwave and set it for 1 min (not deforsting, regular 1 min) and after 10 sec it made a loud sound, i though the sausege pupped but it was from the microwave i guess since it not heating anything anymore,
is there a way to fix it or i need to replace it?
With the symptoms you
have, I would most strongly suspect a blown high voltage rectifier
diode or a bad magnetron, or a loose and possibly corroded connection on the magnetron's terminal.
The diode is a fairly cheap fix, and the mag will cost more.
If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.
There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:
(if it's not shorted or burned, it's probably okay)
