Question about GE Advantium 120 Convection/Microwave Oven

1 Answer

I have a GE microwave. Model # JVM1870BF02 and the interior light is not working. I see a circular disc in the roof inside the oven but, can not seem to slide it and remove to replace the light bulb. Can you explain how?

    Interior light does not work. To replace it you have to dismount the entire machine which in our case takes a repair person. The replacement bulb is over $100 plus the repair person time. We have also had the problem of the entire machine closing down right in the middle of baking an apple pie for Thanksgiving dinner. Again, the repair person was called.
    Our Advantium 120 is four and a half years old.
    I might add there is no authorized GE repair service in our area.
    Overall very disappointing.

THAT DISC ACTUALLY HOUSES THE ANTENNA FOR THE MICROWAVE ENERGY. NO NEED TO GO INTO THAT. TAKE OFF THE FROM GRILL AND IN THE MIDDLE THERE IS A METAL COVER WITH ONE SCREW. TAKE THAT OUT TO ACCESS THE BULB.

GE JES1288SH03 Microwave browning oven (2006. How/where do I access to replace interior light bulb?


The lamp is located inside your microwave oven. The outside enclosure has to be removed to access it. Beware of dangerous voltages exposed when the cover is removed.

Why won't my interior microwave light turn off and my microwave won't start?


It sounds to me that your door switches aren't working.Your oven is protected by a couple of switches that engage when you open or close the door.They control a couple of safety features and also your interior light.One of them seems defective.

Microwave stopped heating anyting. All else appears normal.Manufactured Jan '05. Model JVM1870BF02


To allow us to help you effectively (at no charge), please post a NEW problem to FixYa, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit (JVM1870BF02), your symptoms (no heat), as well as the answers to these questions:

- When you try to microwave are the inside light, internal cooling fan and turntable all working?

- Is there any unusual noise or is it louder or quieter than normal?

(A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.)

We have a sound clip here of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are working.
