Rotu is right - it certainly could be crud on the waveguide vcover or waveguide. If not, it might very well be be a bad magnetron. My understanding is that GE had a run of bad magnetrons and/or other problems in the high voltage section, but I don't know if they publicly acknowledged it. If it's not a dirty waveguide problem, I would contact GE or an authorized servicer. If you don't have a manual, you can download it here: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/

SOURCE: Sensor Error, Funny Smell and Noise

On GE models, "SENSOR ERROR" appears on the display when:

  • Using the sensor feature, the door was opened before steam could be detected. Do not open the door until stream is sensed and time is shown counting down on the display.
  • Steam was not detected in the maximum amount of time. Use Time Cook to heat for more time.
If none of these conditions apply to your situation, then you may have a defective sensor and/or magnetron.

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

SOURCE: Microwave won't heat, and turntable doesn't turn

All the parts you mention are very inexpensive, but yours does not have a triac.

It could be the cook relay, but it's more likely to be a switch.

Looking at the schematic, it's probably a bad primary interlock (upper door switch) or maybe its mount is bad.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If you have a broken mount, it's usually more economical and safer to just add a dab or two of hot glue to the mount to secure the switch. Let it cool for about 30 minutes before using.

Here are some helpful links:

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

There may also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or elsewhere, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

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.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

Microwave won't heat


This is very likely a faulty Magnetron especially as there is not heat. To repair this would mean replacing the Magnetron which is a fairly standard repair for a Microwave oven

GE jvm1631wb003 not heating has a funny machine smell


Most likely the magnatron has gone out and it runs around 90 bucks. If something is funny smelling then by all means don't use it unless you want a fire. If it were me I would replace the oven instead of throwing money nto a repair on a used microvave, they simply don't last as long as they used to. It won't hurt to take the cover off and inspect it for burnt wires that may have grounded out, if none found I would replace the unit.
