Erradic operation of the microwave oven

Greetings, When I turn on the microwave oven it will shut off without completing. The shutoff is generally preceded by flickering in the display panel. Sometimes it will operate to completion, quite bizarre. When I turn off the turntable it still works erradically. I have changed the outlet the unit is plugged in to but that has not made any difference. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Greetings All,

    I tried the suggestions offered with no relief. Since the unit only costs 139.00 new, I chose to purchase a new one.

    Thanks for your help. If this or any other of my appliances break I will be sure to look you up sooner. Since I waited so long to report this, I got impatient and bought the new unit.

Has this unit had the magnetron replaced lately? If so, it may be loose or the RF gasket (mesh screen type washer) may be missing or damaged. If not, the magnetron might be failing. To test this, you can try cooking on the lowest power level (1 or 10%) a few times and see if it fails less often. Otherwise, I would suspect a bad connection or component on the control unit (smart board), which we repair nationwide for only $39.95 postpaid in most cases. We have *critical* safety & disassembly info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk Please repost or write if we can help further.

Led lights flickering


It has nothing to do with the microwave. Unfortunately, it sounds like the LED bulbs are defective and should be replaced.

GE spacemaker microwave turns off during cooking and display goes black


Step 1:


Door Switch




If the microwave runs for a few seconds and then shuts off, a door switch might have failed intermittently. Check each of the door switches for any signs of overheating, arcing, or burning. Also check each of them for continuity. Replace any of the switches that is visibly damaged or that only has continuity intermittently

Step 2:

Main Control Board




If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops there may be a short circuit in the main control board. Check other components first, these boards are often misdiagnosed.


Touchpad and Control Panel




If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the touchpad and control panel might be defective. There are several other components that can cause this problem, be sure to check any other components before replacing this board.

Touchpad




If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the touchpad might be at fault. This is not common. Generally speaking, if the microwave display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but some don't, the problem is with the touchpad.

High Voltage Transformer




If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the high voltage transformer might have an intermittent short. This is not common. Check other components related to the microwave symptom first.

Thermostat




If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the thermostat might be defective. Watch our video on testing thermostat

My microwave heats but shuts off due to the fan not coming on


A little late for a reply; you probably have replaced it by now.

I suspect it shuts down because the fan is no longer turning on and there is probably a thermal shutoff switch near or on the magnetron to prevent the chance of fire.

Shuts off


Greetings,

Thanks for your inquiry regarding the issues you are experiencing with your microwave. What it sounds like is a possible short internally otherwise it might also be over heating.

How long have you owned your microwave for?

I'll await your reply.

We own a GE Microwave jvm1653sh01


The first thing I would check would be the magnetron TCO (thermal cut-out). This is a little safety devise that protects the magnetron in the event of overheating. These can act up even without overheating. I believe the nuetral side of this TCO runs through the board, and therefore the flickering and shutdown. When the TCO cools, it resets. If it were the door switch, you would blow the fuse and wouldn't be able to set the time without changing the fuse. There are other cavity thermostats that could be the culprit but my quess is on the magnetron TCO. When working with microwaves always unplug the unit and discharge the capacitor. This is high voltage..Good Luck
