Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Spacemaker XL1800 runs but doesn't heat.

My GE Spacemaker XL1800 seemingly works fine but the food doesn't heat up or cook. I'm told it could be a magnetron tube which is expensive. What do you think?

I think you should check the fuse first that runs the magnatron if the fuse is good that means the magnatron is bad! but if its only the fuse then you save time and money!

May Spacemaker XL1800 stop heating food. Was working fine. Then just stop


Is this an over the stove type unit? I have had a few problems with my over the range spacesaver. I think the heat from cooking gets up into the microwave and damages it. The steam from me boiling things on the stove had mine quit heating and I purchased a new one. The parts to replace the faulty ones can be quite expensive over $150.00, so its better to purchase a new microwave.

You either have a bad magnetron tube (5 or 10 year parts warranty item through GE Factory Service 1-800-432-2737 or www.geappliances.com) or a shorted high voltage rectifier. I think the light being out is a secondary problem.
