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).

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.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

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:
