I would suggest checking the filters, checking the duct work (including the outdoor vent) and if that doesn't turn up the problem, the hood vent exhaust fan blade assembly may have come loose on the shaft.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here to help you verify the filter status and duct work.

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.

My GE Microwave JVM1850 will not heat unless I put the vent fan on.


That's really odd. I don't believe I've heard of that one before.

I would suspect the problem is on your control board, which in most can be repaired simply and inexpensively.

GE Microwave Profile Spacemaker Runs on its own


Your microwave turning on by itself is a "self preservation feature" of the GE Profile Advantium and maybe some other models. Read the manual, When your over the range oven gets warm enough, for whatever reason the venting fan comes on until a satisfactory oven temperature is reached. You are not permitted to shut the vent fan off. Also it seems a temperature near room temp must be achieved before it shuts the fan motor off, it is very annoying. We had to return our Advantium because of fan noise. I configured the ovens vent fan to the recirculate direction because we do not have a vent duct that exits the house over our range. When the vent fan acting as the ovens cooling fan automatically turned on we would have to leave the house to hear each other talk. Too bad we really liked the oven other than that major problem.

If the blade is not big enough, the motor not powerful enough, or the vent size is wrong then it will not work properly, On thing you can do is check the vent cap and make sure that it has not falling down onto the vent pipe and blocking air movement.

Ge jvm 1653 won't heat


You've got a problem in the microwave circuit, which could be one or more of the following components -

1) HV diode
2) HV Capacitor
3) HV transformer
4) Magnetron

I am leaning to the diode, but it would take further investigation to determine for sure. Diodes are cheap, as if the capacitor, and replacing those first would not necessarily be in vain if it turns out to be the transformer or magnetron. And I would be most inclined to say it's the magnetron before I would think transformer.
