GE JVM1640 won't heat

This was bought 7 years ago. I had it lees than a year and it quit working. The store where I bought it fixed it ( not for free!!) The turntable is going in the oppisate direction but the fan, light, clock etc is working fine. Is it worth trying to repair it ? I bought a GE oven bottom element went out after 3 years, my GE dishwasher quit 6 months ago, I am not a fan of GE products!!!!!!

These microwave ovens have a series of door switches. One of yours has gone bad or a plastic finger on your door mechanism that pushes the switches is worn or broken off. They are commonly called NC or NO swithes some ovens have up to 6 of these working together.If you have no expertise in this field consult a repair shop. Please rate me
Comment posted on Jan 12, 2009 there are two types ,normally open and normally closed, NO NC . u have to check continuity on each one and each switch will have a diagram on the side showing its in use position. I hope this has been helpful

GE eterna spacemaker microwave won't heat


The problem is a magnetron, "heart of the system" or the inverter board, "if 7 years old or less" and possibly the keypad control board, all of these items are not cheap and lethal voltages are present.

Problem with the GE Spacemaker (JVM1640SJ) Microwave Oven GE Spacemaker XL1800 won't heat food anymore....It worked this morning, now won't heat. What should I do?


GE Will replace the magnetron for 9 years! Mine is a 2004 model with a one year warrently according to manual. HOWEVER they did say the magnatron was covered for nine years: call 888-239-6832. When I called they said thats all they get calls for and would send out in 3-5 days. NO CHARGE. I had to ask if there was coverage longer than a year on major parts and that's when they offered the info and I eventually was transferred to the right office. Saved $120 bucks on parts alone.

I have no low heat setings at all; it cooks at 100% on all settings no matter what I out in det in slower percentage cooking; manual or automatic; I'm not sure when this began, but (to my discredit) it may...


I'm afraid you won't get the help you need here; you need to go to the manufacturer's website and look for 'support' or 'repair' or 'dealer' links.
BTW, it was the 'magnetron' that was likely the part that failed in that earlier unit.

GE Spacesaver Microwave no longer heats JVM3670SF02


I would bet that either the first time or this time it is/was the magnetron tube, which has a 10 year warranty on the part, you pay for labor. Check and see what they did the last time, but they did have some trouble with the mags in these microwaves. If it was the mag, I'm not sure what area you are from, but $200 is a little high just for labor.
