We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid.

This failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

Feel free to contact me directly for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: JVM1190 wont cook

You have a blown actuator. This is the device that creates the microwaves that cook the food. The cost of one of these will be as much as a new unit.

SOURCE: My GE JET 342H-001 built in died. exterior

Yes there is....but you would like to do a simple check first?

There is a fuse just inside the control panel that you can check.

Unplug unit.

THERE IS STILL POWER IN THE MICROWAVE WHEN POWER HAS BEEN DISCONNECTED. VERY IMPORTANT TO DO ONLY WHAT THE PROCEDURE SAYS!

This will blown will make it seem as if the microwave is dead.

Take off the top front grille....held on by two screws that are inside around the middle....they may be hard to locate but they are there and remove the grille.

To the right just above the control board you should see one screw holding in the control take this out....control should come out and rest at about a 45 degree angle....it is on a hinge.

Now look into the microwave and you will see a ceramic fuse. Check this fuse for continuity...or just replace it.....you can get it at a hardware lowes or homedepot. Ensure it is for a microwave.

Good luck

SOURCE: ge spacemaker microwave jvm1640cj03 stopped

If it stops heating and the other parts of the oven still work, the problem is with the magnetron circuit. If it makes a loud buzzing noise when you try to heat the food, then the magnetron has shorted out. The replacement cost for the magnetron is almost as much as a new oven, so it does not make sense to have it fixed. Sorry.

Display reads clean filter even when the filter is out is there a nother filter inside


You need to reset the filter timer. Press the "options" button, then "3" for filter timer, then "start". The filter timer should now be reset and you shouldn't see it say clean filter anymore. Hope this helps.

If the timer counts down and nothing else happens, the secondary interlock switch is bad. This switch completes the cook circuit and this is why it doesn't run. You need an ohm meter to diagnose and find the right switch. Switch failure is caused by opening the door when it is in cook mode. Push the stop button first before opening the door and this failure will cease to occur. BE CAREFUL !!

GE Spacemaker XL - fan stopped working, light will come on and timer will count down.


either the magnatron fried , or the fuse fried... either way the microwve has to be taken down and opened up.
If you have the serial number , GE will send you a replacement magnatron (but will not service the unit for you).
contact GE and they will take care of you... the magnatrons are warranted for like 10 years....

You are right the control panel is very expensive, you can try the filter to see if you can get it working, but I must admit a new microwave oven sounds appealing.

One suggestion I have is to remove the power to the unit and make sure capacitor is discharged, pull the wires off the magnetron and make sure they are tight. Clean connections tighten with pliers and reinstall.
