It is supposed to be when it cooks. If not, it may be burned out.

If that's the case, one would have to remove the cover to get to it.

Inside Light stays on and the Start Button will not work at all!


You probably broke the door sensor switch.

The part must be tested before replacement.

Parts can be purchased from Partselect, Appliancespartspro, or Repairclinic. Have a look on google.

GE Sensor Microwave JES1855 died


Mine went dead after about 6 months. I had problems with my breakers and I found out that it was the microwave that blew all of them. I also found out that this perticular microwave is a fire hazard and should be recalled. It has caused me alot of headache. The breakers in my house are brand new and they are put out by GE also. It caused me to loose the food in my freezer, I did not know my freezer had lost power. It would cause my entire lights to go off and then they would come back on. I have checked around and I found out that the power cord on the back of the unit is very loose. I had a person to come in and look at it, he thinks its the power cord.

Light getting hot


This probably is normal, assuming the bulb(s) is the right wattage.

If you're still concerned, I would contact GE Customer Service here.

GE microwave unresponsive!


There shoudl be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) inside the oven. The most common reasons for this are the magnetron thermal cutout and the fuse. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
