Parts for Model JVM230WLC

This is an older Spacesaver microwave, but it has performed exceptionally well over the last dozen years. I am trying to locate a parts manual so that I can order a new front for the door and control panel. Any help would be appreciated.

Are you looking to upgrade it cosmetically or does it have a problem?

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

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.

To replace the outer door panel, you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove for disassembly.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

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

GE spacesaver microwave XL1800, all works but not heating


There are some troubleshooting steps you can take to possibly determine the problem before calling or taking it for service, you need a multimeter and a capacitor discharging tool. if you posses BOTH of these tools,
there are 4 causes for this symptom
1) Transformer
2) Capacitor
3) Diode
4) Magnetron
I can instruct you on how to test and/or replace the first three of these. The magnetron is VERY dangerous and should not be serviced or tampered with except by qualified personel. let me know if you would like to take any of these steps otherwise you could bring it to a repair station.
Hope this helps...Feedback always helps me

Its a free country Bage, but microwave energy is extremely dangerous! Repairs are not feasible unless performed by factory personnel under warrantry, and certified. I suggest you contact the manufacturer about the problem.

GE Spacesaver over the range microwave oven


GE Microwave ovens, and Microwave Ovens produced by GE but released under different brand names, have had several power problems for the past 20 years. Because it is so easy to sell parts and charge outrageous rates for repair GE never corrected the problems. They just continued it in the next model. They found that you would most likely purchase a new unit rather than paying $75. for a service charge, and $150. for labor plus parts (if out of warranty period).
Most failures were cold solder connections on the power relay board. These would come completely dis-connected after arcing and burning away the solder. Could be 1 month, could be years, but they knew it would happen. This power relay board feeds 120volts to the LV (low voltage) side of the HV (high voltage) Transformer. No High Voltage,,No cook. Everything seems to run normal, but if you listen carefully you will not hear the low tone from the HV Transformer. Over my thirty years in the business I have re-soldered rather than replace so many I couldn't count.
Next to that, a defective Magnetron.

Spacesaver micro not heating


Your magnetron, HV diode, Capacitor, or control board maybe bad most of these components run with high voltage and difficult to test without the proper equipment

GE Spacesaver doesn't heat


if you are as lucky as i was...i have a ge spacesaver model jvm130...same problem. first unplug unit and check fuse on the "power control module". if fuse is ok...unscrew the screws holding the "power control module" in place...carefully tilt module and see if a solder joint needs to be re-soldered. my problem was the solder joint under the front plug (5 large wire plug). you may have to unplug the three connectors to the board to get access to bottom. this is the second time i had to re-solder...last one was several years ago though. best of luck tennisrme
