SOURCE: GE SpaceMaker Microwave suddenly stops while heating

I had same problem last week. My GE JVM1650 Spacemaker stopped after a few seconds of heating. Owned 16 months, manufactured Jan 2005. It was the magnetron, which was replaced yesterday. The magnetron has a 10-year warranty, but I had to pay $161.00 for labor by a GE technician. The call-out fee was waived at my request. I don't know what that amount would have been, but I can't believe the $161.00 for what was about 1/2 hour labor once diagnosed. Good Luck!

Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

There should be a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel.

Please write back with more details if you need further help.

Hey, "timebomb" thanks for that comment but there is absolutely no food stuck there but we did fix it using another persons comments. We went to a local computer repair store and they GAVE us that anti static paper for FREE and we opened up the digital display and covered the inside back portion with the paper that I mentioned and IT TOTALLY WORKED our microwave has been working perfect now since we fixed it on like January 3rd, 2008. We are shocked!!!!!!! Boy, my interned bill paid for itself this month because after doing research we knew that it was going to end up needed a new magnatron plus labor costs, I would have hated to see that bill. WHAT A JOKE, GE definitely knows that this is happening. They SUCK!!!

A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the magnetron thermostat to open.

Then when it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

If it's intermittent or random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or a loose fuse holder, or even an intermittent fuse.

You should do a continuity test the fuse while it's in the holder (with the microwave unplugged, of course) then turn the fuse by hand or take it out and put it back in, then test it again.

If you remove the fuse, then press the meter leads against the ends, it can allow internal contact to be made and make a bad fuse appear to be good.

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

If it goes dead or blows the breaker when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

If it has a hood thermostat, that should read open, as opposed to the others, which should read closed.

You may have a failure of the H.V. rectifier. I would recommend that a trained technician replace this part due to the high voltage potential.

It sounds like a cook relay stuck closed and this is why it continued to cook. When the door was opened it should have blown the monitor fuse (which is how it is designed to for safety) so that it cannot cook when the door is open. Or, a cavity temp fuse was blown due to the fire inside. Also a safety feature.

The keypad of my Profile 2.0 over the counter microwave is frozen in the clock mode


Remove power for 15 minutes and see if the clock resets. However if there is no action on the control panel the fault can be either due to a faulty control pad, a faulty board.
Unless the unit is removed to check there is no other option.

Microwave won't turn on. Seems like it is not getting power. I checked breaker. I am looking for a fuse. You know where one is? It is a GE Spacemaker(2 yrs old) model # JVM1440WH04


  • Make sure that the microwave is plugged into a grounded outlet. It must be a 3-prong outlet.
  • Make sure the clock is set.
  • Check to see if a programming sequence was entered. Sometimes improper programming or a program sequence such as delay start can cause the touch panel to be non-responsive. Unplug microwave or turn off house circuit breaker for 30 seconds. Plug back in, or reset circuit breaker, and try reprogramming unit.
  • Check the house circuit breaker or fuse box. If the microwave is DEAD and there is no display and nothing works- the problem could be a blown fuse or tripped breaker.

No power to GE Spacemaker Microwave


I have model GE Microwave serial # JVM2070SK02. I start to cook something and it shuts off 5~10 seconds. Keyboard is still lit up, but no clock, fan, light and you cannot operate anything on the key pad. Unplug the unit and it resets. Sometimes it cooks, sometimes it doesn't? It is getting more frequent with the shutting down problem?

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.

GE Spacemaker Microwave Oven JVM1330BW200


all...you should first check to make sure the outlet you're using is good. Really. Next, check internal fuse and thermosafety in the unit. They are both found inside the button area. The safety is about the size of a dime and 3/8 inch thick with two wires. Sometimes they open. They should be continuous. Not it? Let me know.
