Question about GE Advantium 120 Convection/Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Microwave part of my GE Sensor Convection Microwave doesn't work

I have a (around 10 year old) GE SENSOR Microwave/Convection Oven, Model JVM 1190.
Everything seems to work, but the microwave doesn't provide any "heat" - it doesn't even heat a cup of coffee.

    Thank you for posting the model number.

    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).

My microwave/convection oven (a GE unit model JES1290SK) started beeping every few seconds and displaying F6 on the control panel. I unplugged it and waited several minutes and when plugged in it displays...


The technical sheets in my files do not list F6 on the error code chart for GE microwaves.

Generally, these are the error codes possible on GE microwaves:

F1 open thermal sensor (convection models)
F2 shorted thermal sensor (convection models)
F3 key panel shorted for more than 60 seconds
F4 open humidity sensor
F5 shorted humidity sensor

There should be a "mini-manual" (technical 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.

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.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Microwave oven just quit. Have checked fuse and plug. Have had no earlier problems. Do these ovens just ''wear out''? It is 8 years old. It is a GE Spacemaker. (November 2002) GE Spacemaker Serial...


yes they wear out. usally the first part to quit is the unit inside that creates the microwaves called the "magnetron" over time they will wear out, and so will the circuitry that runs the entire microwave, some will last 8 years like yours, some only a year or 2. 8 years is pretty good for the life of a microwave. but yea, its time to get yourself a new one. good luck to you

GE Microwave/Convection JVM 1090 oven won't reach temperature


You probably have a bad thermistor.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

(At that site, that part is misspelled as "thermister" for your model).

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

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.

Accessing some components for testing will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

JVM convection microwave


I see. Okay, well then I would expect there's a problem with a high voltage part, such as the diode, magnetron or transformer.

Your model number should be entered as JVM192002 and you can find exploded views here.

You can usually find GE parts for much less here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:
