Question about GE JVM1850 1000 Watts Microwave Oven

GE spacemaker microwave JVM1851WF001 stirrer motor replacement Hello, I have read many answers of yours and was very impressed. Thank you very much for that. I have a GE spacemaker microwave JVM1851WF001 and started making big rattling noise from top. I removed top vent grille and upper stirrer motor cover and heard the noise from the motor or under the motor. So I concluded that the noise comes from the stirrer. By the way, the motor is about 1.5" X 1.5" size. How can that small motor create that loud noise? Do we have more than under the cover? I actually did not uncover the microwave yet, so I do not what is under the stirrer cover. If there is anything under the motor, as a lay person, how can I recognize if the noise is the motor problem or the other unknown under the motor problem? It is regular and quick thumping or rattling noise. Thank you so much for reading my long question. If you could give me any advice, it would be greatly appreciated. Hoseop Cha

    Hello MicrowaveSvc,



    Thank you for your kind reply. It was thorough again.

    I followed all possible tests as you instructed and found that motor itself makes noise.

    Yes, I will order the motor and replace it.

    Again, I greatly appreciate your help.

    I have the same (apparently) noise problem with my stirrer motor. I wold like to replace it but I can't access the screws that hold the stirrer motor in place; there is simply not enough vertical room in there to get a good leverage on those screws.

    Do you have an advice for me?

    Thank you.

    It may be the motor, or it may be that the stirrer is loose on the stirrer motor shaft or is loose / bent and hitting the chassis or the stirrer cover.

    I would first remove the stirrer cover in the ceiling of the oven and see if the blade is loose or bent, then run it while watching the stirrer.

    The owner's manual covers the removal of the stirrer cover.

    You can download GE
    owner's manuals and installation instructions
    here.

    Accessing some components for testing and replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall. I think you can count on it if you need to replace the motor.

    If
    so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have
    two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

    The next step might be to unplug the oven, remove one of the connectors from the stirrer motor, then plug it back in and run it again.

    If it is the stirrer motor making the noise, you won't hear it now.

    You can find a good exploded view here and
    order parts by entering your full
    model number
    here.

    Let me know how it goes.

GE Profile Spacemaker XL1800 microwave turntable


The turntable system consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

On some, you have to cut the motor cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.


You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

GE Model # JVM1631WB makes an awful sound when cooking, and the turntable does not rotate. The sound is not normal, and may be related to the turntable not working?


Yes! On many GE models (yours included) the internal cooling fan has a built-in tap (like a transformer) that powers the turntable motor, and in some cases, the stirrer motor, too.

If the internal cooling fan does not run, the magnetron can overheat in about two minutes and overheating too much will destroy it.

If the stirrer is not running, arcing will occur which will damage the stirrer and eventually the magnetron.

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.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

The oven should not be used - and should stay unplugged - until it is repaired.

I have a GE Spacemaker microwave JVM1430BD002 There's a circular panel inside on the upper surface that's all greasy around the edges. It has arrows with 'open' close' on it but I can't get it to move. I'm...


That's the stirrer cover. It does need to removed and cleaned, and the stirrer parts above it, too. so that the grease will not eventually cause arcing and damage.

Your owner's manual should cover that. If you've misplaced yours, you can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

Lubricant leak from round disk on the inside top of the microwave (piece has open and close written on it).


That would be the stirrer cover, and the leak is probably grease that has gotten into the area above the cover.

The cover, stirrer and exposed area under the cover needs to be cleaned thoroughly to prevent arcing and to allow for proper stirrer of the weaves for even cooking.

GE Spacesaver 1800 XL - rattling sound


Hi jnflanders,
You've probably solved this by now, but I'll answer just in case. That part is called the stirrer motor. You can replace it yourself, as long as you have an offset phillip's head screwdriver handy.
Before you order the replacement part, figure out if your stirrer is driven by a d-shaped or a square shaft. You can tell by taking off the round plate on the inside top wall of the microwave. GE makes stirrer motors for both d-shaped and square shafts, so you'll have to get the right one. Here's the d-shaped motor that fixed this problem with my microwave: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=2024961.
Good luck!

My GE Spacemaker XL 1800 microwave is making noise on the top end. It's not the turntable. There is a round disk at the top inside that has OPEN CLOSE markings. It seems to be held by a little button...


The button is a rivet which pulls out. That holds the stirrer cover in place.

When the cover is removed, that will expose the stirrer. It may have some grease accumulation, or the motor may be bad.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

Any damaged parts will need to be replaced.

Hot Spots in my Spacemaker Microwave Oven JVM14OH001


Okay, I see now.

That would be the "stirrer blade assembly" part number WB2X9935.

It comes as an assembly, with the stirrer blade and what looks like a coupler.

GE sells it for $98, but you can get by searching for part # WB2X9935 here for only $55.61.

Constant rattling noise during operation


possibly the "stirrer" motor - this is in the top and turns a metal reflecting ring to disperse the microwaves around the oven more evenly. About $70 on GE site for my oven.
