Question about GE JVM1410 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

No heating jvm1440bd

This GE JVM1440BD microwave has the only problem it doesnt warm. All other features work properly, even when you start it the light and the fan come on, and the glass plate starts rotating, but it doesnt get hot at all. I suspect the problem is the magnetron because the microswitches, fuse, and termistors are ok. i would like to know what test could i take to be completly sure and where can i get a replacement for the magnetron in LA area.

Re: no heating jvm1440bd

Before you take it apart, yours may be a model covered by a campaign under which GE is replacing "underperfroming" magnetrons and also putting in new stirrers and high voltage diodes. See this bulletin to see if yours is one of them: If it's not covered, then we have *critical* safety & disassembly info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: While you can't be completely sure without experience, there is a technical sheet in an envelope inside the oven which shows how to test the magnetron with an ohmmeter. Essentially there should be near zero between the two terminals, and infinity from either terminal to the case. You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your model number here: If you'd rather find parts locally (at sky-high prices) check your Yellow Pages for Applaince Parts. *grin*

Silvercrest microwave, table dont turn no heating

follow the steps, use the VOM for fix it. God bless you

  1. Check the power diodeThis electronic component is responsible for transmitting current in one direction. If the diode becomes defective it will cause your microwave to not heat. Test the diode and replace it if necessary.
  2. High voltage capacitorResponsible for storing electricity, this part is a key component in any microwave. Remove, discharge, and test the capacitor to determine if it requires replacement.
  3. Damaged magnetronResponsible for generating waves and producing heat. When your microwave is no longer heating properly, replacement will be required.
  4. Thermal CutoffsExamine the thermal cutoffs on both the magnetron and the oven itself. Take off one of the leads and using a volt-ohm meter on RX1, check the terminals. If you get a result other than zero, replace the thermal cutoffs.

GE Microwave model JVM1440BD operates but does not heat


On most occasions, it is magnetron. If you on your oven and hear an humming noise, that usually confirms magnetron problem.

You could see how to test magnetron

Let me know, once you test this.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

GE JVM1440BD Microwave hood lights don't work

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 in about a week.

At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This light 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.

If your relay is bad and you want to replace it yourself, it is part # 3501-001050 and you can find helpful exploded view diagrams of your microwave and order that part here.

Be sure to also do any needed circuit board repair with 30AWG wire to prevent it from doing worse damage if another bulb shorts.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.

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

GE Spacemaker Microwave Oven Model JVM1440BD: turntable doesn't work. When we press start, turntable make semi-loud noise while oven is cooking, but it does not turn. We can stop noise by pressing...

The turntable system consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

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.

Jvm1440bd Microwave

I thought I had answered this, but maybe the reply didn't post... Vent cap? Could you be more specific about what you tried and what the noise is like - where it seems to be coming from? It looks like on some of these models, the high-voltage section emits some interference which some people are blocking with a foil or metal shield. If they do that, they should definitely insulate it to prevent shorts. Another cause of vibration on these models is a fault in the stirrer located above the cover on the ceiling inside the cooking cavity. Feel free to post back so we can help further.
