Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1750 Microwave Oven

Open Question

The touchpad on my GE Spacemaker Microwave is starting to blister. It was only installed a month ago and there are 3 or four places where it is blistering, or bubbling, about the size of a dime. Mostly where we use it most ie. Number 1, "add 30 seconds". Other than that it is working fine. What is causing this?? Jim

Usually that's due to accumulated grease and / or food particles.

They must be cleaned. If they are damaged, they must be replaced.

If this continues, it can damage the paint or the wall, which would have to be sanded and repainted with high-temperature appliance paint from places like Wal-Mart or Lowes.

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 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.

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.

With the details you described, the high voltage diode might be shorted( usually HVR 1X). It is connected from the Capacitor and the chassis, or else the capacitor is the one at fault,but not common .

If the top of it butts aginst your cabinets you will have to take the bolts from the inside of your cabinets around the front area that that are holding it up out (use 2 people) once they are out it "should" still hang there, next step slowly lift it an inch or so (then you will be no longer on the back suppot) again use 2 people, then you can pull straight out. hope this is what you are looking for.

Reset clock, ge spacemaker xl1800 times out after 2-3 seconds

There's a simple fix for this. Unplug the unit. Take off the top grill with 2 screws. Remove the 1 screw that holds the touch pad unit. Lift up on touchpad unit and lift out. Put a piece of aluminum foil inside a large zip lock bag and tape it to the back of the touchpad unit and reassemble. GE put the magnetron to close to the control board causing stray microwaves to interfere with the board. The foil shields it.

Ge spacemaker xl does not heat- fuse has continuity (OHM test) help.

I am assuming that your microwave turns on and everything and that when you press the start button the table turns and all. This tells me at least that all the switches on the door are working properly and since your fuse is not blown you have power to your control panel. That being the case the magnetron (the part that does the cooking) is bad and needs to be replaced. If you are a do it yourselfer and can find the magnetron through a local supply house or the internet, replacing it is pretty straightforward. Unplug the microwave and take the cover off just a handful of screws. On the control panel side and behind and on top you will see the magnetron with cooling fins on it. The magnetron is usually held in place with three to four screws and has about 3 to four wires coming from it and going to a couple of places. These have terminals on them that unplug and there is no soldering or desoldering to do. Unplug the wires and be sure to make a small diagram as to which one goes where. Get a new magnetron and replace it. Put the cover on and you are back in business. God bless.
