Question about GE JVM1190 Microwave Oven
Clock etc. see fine, so main 15A fuse is OK. (unit is about 6 years old, normal house-hold duty, rarely use the convection cooking piece) When I hit "minute cook" relays click (normal), light in oven comes on, but the (rather loud) FAN and "microwave HUMM/Noise" doesn't. (its almost as if the computer is doing all the right things, but isn't "getting" that the actual NUKING isn't happening) These over-the-range hood+convection units are not particularly cheap (or easy) to replace, so with some assistance perhaps DIY repair is an option. thanks for any insight/assistance, -- MikeE
If it were just just not cooking, I would suspect the magentron. But since the fan is also not working, I think you have a bad door switch. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety and disassembly info at our site, as well as other specific troubleshooting information and help. In my professional opinion, no one should work on a microwave unless they are fully informed and aware of the deadly hazards and necessary precautions. You can find safety and disassembly text files (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at http://www.microwavedisplay.com You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
