Question about GE Profile Spacemaker Over-the-Range Microwave

1 Answer

JVM231WV001 I cooked a chicken in my approx 15 year old microwave for 35 minutes straight. It just off automatically for the last 1 minute like it was "overheated". The control panel works - I can set a cook time, the surface light works, but nothing happens when I press start and no interior lights come on. In the past I have been cooking on the stove top while microwaving, and it has shut off auto but has come back on after it "cooled off." It has not started automatically for the last 20 hours.

It sounds like instead of an overheated magnetron thermostat tripping the power, you now have a defective door switch.

Our door switch help file is here.

There should 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.

SOURCE: GE JVM1870 Spacemaker Microwave Fan Malfunctioning when Cooking

There are two different fans in this model, as with almost all over the range microwaves.

One is the hood vent exhaust fan, which you can turn on and off at will, and which should always be on when cooking on the stove top.

This fan does not automatically come on when you cook with the microwave.

The fan which should always be on (automatically) when you are microwaving is the internal magnetron cooling fan.

If the cooling fan fails, the magnetron can overheat and the thermal cutout (TCO) / thermostat will open, killing the power to the oven. Ideally, this protects the magnetron from being destroyed.

If the thermal device is a thermostat, it will reset when it cools down, and the oven will work.

If the thermal device is a true thermal fuse, it is a one-time device and if it blows, it will have to be replaced.

If your cooling fan is bad, it needs to be replaced before using the microwave.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

SOURCE: GE Microwave won't heat or cook - one year old

More than likely the magnetron has failed. This could be for a number of reason. Do you use your microwave to heat wheat packs or warm plates? If so, you may have dried the magnetron out (they use the moisture in whatever you're cooking to heat it, and plates/wheat bags have no moisture).

I'd say a trip to your local Microwave repairer could be in order. It could also be the High Voltage Fuse which has failed. Either way a repairer will be able to tell you!

SOURCE: Shuts itself off mid cooking cycle -- as if unplugged; then after 5 minutes or so turns itself back on as if it was just plugged in (forgetting all previous settings)

If you just put the fan blade back on, it will almost certainly fall off again.

The best bet is to slightly rough up the contact area of the shaft with sandpaper and use a little super glue to hold the blade assembly on the shaft, and let it set a few minutes before using it.

I always recommend that you use the hood vent exhaust fan when cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls.

OOPS!

I meant to post that as a solution, not a clarification request, so it came out as one big blob paragraph (Thanks, FiyXa!)

Here it is again, but in readable form:


You have a failing membrane keypad.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

It is part number WB27X10171 and while GE sells it for a whopping $115.50, you can get it for $90.58 here.

The safest way to know is to use a thermometer. Since you are using a red sauce you cannot look for blood. You could brown the chicken first and then put it in the sauce.

I was cooking food for 1 minute and it just shut off after approx. 30 sec. There are no lights or power now. The outlet is fine. The unit is 4 yrs old.


Check your other appliance. You may have tripped a break. If they are all functioning, and you have no dead outlets in your kitchen, then the unit will need to be serviced. Hope it's the breaker.
a 1200w microware will draw 10 amps all by itself. Your outlets are most likely on 15 amp breakers, so it wouldn't take much amp draw from another kitchen appliance to trip the breaker.

Our dgs61st DeLonghi gas oven was installed on Wed. 3rd Nov. We gave it the recommended 'burn off', today we have put a chicken in and started cooking it on heat 140/155, after 20 minutes the oven is...


Could it perhaps be the chicken fat burning?
I take it you are using convection only and not microwave power because if you use microwave power and do not contain the fat in with the chicken, the fat will be heated to its flash point by the microwaves and smoke heavilly.
Hope this explained it for you.

My mother just bought an Emerson MW8119 Microwave and can't figure out how to only set say 15 seconds cook time. Is it possible?


Hi! I just purchased the same microwave, and came online to find the solution. I was then able to find the correct answer to this problem. On this model, Emerson does not put a "time cook" button for odd cook times such as 15 seconds. Instead, they have you push the "Power Button" prior to setting the cook time.

If you want to cook on full power, press the power button once, and then enter your cooking time and press start. If you want to cook on 50% power or 30% power or something like that, push the "Power Button" several times until the appropriate power level is displayed, then enter the cook time and press start.

The reason that it starts up right away when *********** pushes the 1 button is because Emerson has the quick cooking feature for 1 minute through 6 minutes. You only have to push the number once to get the 1 minute cook time or anywhere through 6 minutes respectively.

Hope this helps!

HOW DO I ROAST A CHICKEN IN A AC925CHS


Search the internet for “roast chicken recipe for microwave”
Here is one just in case you don’t find one:
Microwave Roast Chicken
3 lbs. chicken
1 tsp. salt
4 tbsp. butter or margarine
1 tsp. paprika

Instructions
Melt butter in a custard cup in microwave. Mix paprika into melted butter. Wash chicken (reserve giblets, these are best cooked conventionally). Sprinkle inside of chicken with salt. Cover ends of legs, tail, and wings with small pieces of saran wrap or wax paper. Place trivet on inverted saucer or small casserole lid in 12 x 7 inch baking dish. Place chicken breast side down on saucers. Brush with butter. Cover with waxed paper. Cook 12 minutes. Remove wax paper or saran warp from legs, tail, and wings. Turn chicken breast side up and brush with butter. Cover with wax paper and cook 12 minutes more or until meat thermometer registers 180 degrees (temperature will increase to 195 degrees during standing).

DO NOT USE MEAT THERMOMETER IN OVEN WHEN COOKING!! Remove chicken from oven; cover with aluminum foil and let stand 15 to 20 minutes before carving. Note: For other weights of chicken, allow 8 minutes cooking time per pound.

Power level


The numbers DO NOT equal a certain power level Erin. They equal a percentage! This is very confusing. Even the factory reps. can't explain it adequately. I recently replaced my old 600 watt oven with a GE 1100 watt model. The 600 watt unit came with a great cookbook. (I searched the internet but couldn't find one for the GE oven and the factory was no help!) A chicken recipe in the 600 cookbook said cook on high for 30 minutes. Since 600 is approx. half of 1100, I cooked on high for 15 minutes. Result: Uncooked chicken...

The next time I cooked 30 minutes on 50% power (button 5) and It came out OK. I have since used 50% power with meats in cooking bags with good results. Remember to check for correct temp. with a meat thermometer when oven stops. Trial and error is your best test at this point I'm afraid. Also you may want to type "Microwave Conversion Chart" into your browser. You will get some additional information from this. But read carefully!
