Question about GE JVM1650 1000 Watts Microwave Oven
Hi Brian: You gave some advice back in December about this issue. I ordered and received the mag tube. However, is this something that you recommend an "average Joe/Jane" replace themselves? Or, should I call a cert. technician as GE suggests? Thank you, Tami
It isn't really difficult to replace... It's the 4000 Volts that go to it and the stored energy (voltage) in the high voltage capacitor that concerns me as far as telling you that it is a do it yourself repair. Also, and this a huge concern, is that after the magnetron tube is replaced, the microwave should be leak checked. A microwave leak detector that is certified is around $400. Now that I said that, I have rarely ever had one that leaked, but it is the law and that's the main reason that it needs to be done. I highly recommend calling GE Factory Service 1-800-432-2737 (1-800-GE Cares) to install the magnetron tube.
