Question about GE XL1800 1100 Watts Microwave Oven

Open Question

GE Spacemaker XL1800 interior light and magnitron stay on

This morning our microwave light (internal) turned on and it's making a sound like the magnitron (or some fan) is on, but it doesn't produce any heat, nor will it turn off. The keypad won't respond and when I do a "hard reset", regardless of how long I have it unplugged for, it resumes the same behavior. The light immediately turns on and it makes the "whirring" sound. Any ideas from my vague description would be appreciated.

    I have the same issue. The microwave continues to run when pluged in. The light comes on and you can hear like a fan is going as if it is doing something but it is not heating. The only way to shut it off is to unplug the microwave. Also everything on the digital display is lit up and is non responsive when you hit anything on the key pad.

    What is your actual model number?

    (It will be something like JVM18##xx##)

    Also, does it cook properly when you try to use it?

    These answers will help
    me judge whether it's a bad door switch or mount or a problem with the control panel assembly.

SOURCE: Broken handle on GE Spacemaker XL1800 microwave

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

SOURCE: My Ge SpaceMaker XL1800 Microwave Oven won't power on any more.

1.Check power outlet for working.
2.If it is than you have broken fuse inside the m/w.
3. To change the fuse you have to disconnect the power to m/w, take the upper grill off, take the screw on top of control panel, lift the control panel up and removed. The 20 Am fuse located behind this panel.

It made a loud noise and was starting to smoke.


Sounds like the magnitron is shot, I wouldn't attempt to use it anymore. When a magnitron goes bad it actually gets much stronger than the unit is made to handle.
