Question about GE Profile Spacemaker Over-the-Range Microwave

Open Question

I have a GE spacesaver 2 microwave model number JEM31CA001. The unit will not respond unless it is unplugged and reset. After a couple of days, the same thing occurs. Sometimes it will not shut off unless the door is opened and then unplugged. Sometime there is no display at all.

SOURCE: GE spacemaker Profile XL1800 vent fan will not shut off

It may be a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel, such as a sticky relay.

I would suspect a sticky relay first, but the door switches should be checked.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

If you need your control panel assembly (smart board) repaired, we do that for $39.95 nationwide.

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.

SOURCE: Reset for GE Microwave?

There's no other reset function. If a reset (unplugging) does not correct it, it will need to be repaired.

If it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free. GE Customer Service is here.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

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

I would suspect a blown fuse or the magnetron;s thermal cutout / thermal fuse.

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

SOURCE: The microwave oven does not have power to the panel.

HI, this will require the skilled hands of a qualified GE tech. the damaged part here is the Magnetron assembly. this is a very sensitive part that creates radiation and the heating process as well. you will need to replace this device asap if possible.

I have a GE Microwave and while pushing button the keypad locked and i got the message CONTROLS ARE LOCKED - how do i get out of this? I can't clear it and the buttons don't respond to touch. Kelley


If a hard reset (unplugging power for 2 minutes)does not fix it, then you have a failed membrane keypad.

To give you any further free help, we would need your full model number form the tag in or on the unit.

Please make a new post with that your full model number and symptoms.

Keypad number buttons not working on ge spacesaver microwave - auto program buttoms work?


Very angry. Fairly new, little-used Spacesaver Microwave [3][Clock][Surface Light] buttons now do not work. We never even press [3], just [1] and [2] to warm sandwiches.
Unplugged for an hour. Still not working. Everything else works. We never use anything else. Bad solder joint in circuit board or keypad?
Thank you.

Heat doesn't come on in microwave


If you have the experience with discharging a capacitor and you have a (VOM) Volt Olm Meter. Unplug microwave, discharge capacitor, and check the resistance of the two thermal cut-off discs by removing the lead and set VOM to RX1. If you don't get a reading of zero, replace the discs. For part go to www.partselect.com and enter your model number. If you found any of these suggestions helpful, please rate my solution. D. Lange

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
