Question about GE JVM1440 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

No power to microwave, changed fuse but still nothing!

My GE JVM1440WH04 is less than a year old, used it one day, the next the power was out. I changed the fuse, but still NO power. Could it be the power cord? I checked the outlet and it was fine.

    I have the same problem but the Microwave is 2,5 years old so its not covered by warranty. It was working just fine when suddenly it stopped working completely as if it doesn't power, so we're not sure what to do

There is an internal fuse and internal TCOs (thermal cutouts / thermostats) any of which can interrupt the power to the unit.

Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

GE JVM1190BY died


The keypad control board may be the problem, or the inverter board if 7 years old or less, cost should be considered.

Yes the main fuse has blown for several different reasons. If you have no electrical know how, or experience using a multimeter you really should have a pro take a look at it. It could be anything from a bad capacitor, a bad High Voltage diode, a bad door switch or maybe even a bad magnetron or a control panel. Not really a job for a novice to attempt, as the main AC fuse will not blow for no reason. Good Luck

Microwave will not heat


The problem is the magnetron, "heart of the microwave oven" or the inverter board if 7 years old or less.

The electrical outlet is on. The microwave is completly dark. It's 16 years old. What should i do? Fix it or buy a new one.


After 16 years, I should think you had your money's worth from this machine.
There are a few arguments for fixing it, if it's repairable, but a new one will be more powerful while being more efficient too. (use less electric)
Less radiation leakage too.. (pacemaker exposure?)

Perhaps you should first try shopping around to see if you find one that you like, and that fits in the space you have for it, etc. If you buy a new one, get a good one. Don't go cheap.
If one seems to make good sense to you, then buy it. If nothing looks good to you then find a repair shop to take old one to.

Why would you keep old one? Well first of all, they don't make them like they used to. Lot of new ones are noisy and rattle a lot. Don't last nearly as long. Many new ones have problems early.

Old ones are lower power, which is slower, BUT food heats more evenly because of it. Less prone to exploding food.

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.

GE JVM1870 Runs, but won't heat up


Our GE jvm1870 is now over 4 yrs old, and had been working fine-- until recently when using, didn't heat anymore & also started making a crazy sound.

Am no electrician, so I called GE to help. Needed a new magnetron & some diode. Part was under a 10 yr warranty- the total cost for service call + labor was under $200. Not great, but beats buying a new microwave ($400-700) and having to install it.
