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.

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

The prime suspects would be the bottom TCO, the 20A ceramic fuse located on the noise filter board near where the cord goes into the unit, the oven cavity TCO, or the magnetron TCO.

All these will be shown in the mini manual.

To access and test (and if necessary replace) the oven cavity TCO, you will need to remove the oven from the wall.

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

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

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

JVM 1440 GE microwave stopped heating. all other functions work great. where do I start


GE microwaves are notorious for the magnetron failing, this is what generates the microwaves. Usually the unit will make a louder than normal deep hum when running if this is the case, but not always. If you have the schematic, you can measure for 120 volts leaving the control board to the transformer, you can simply measure the line in on the transformer for this. You also want to visually note that all other functions like the countdown timer, inter light, turntable, and fan are all running when you start a cooking cycle. The monitor, and interlock switches mounted on the latch assy need to be checked for continuity too. If replacing the magnetron we always recommend replacing the high volt diode connected to the capacitor and chassis ground. Pleazer Appliance...

I have a GE spacemaker microwave oven model JVM 1440. A bulb blew and when I went to change both over the stove bulbs stay on all the time. What is the problem and what should I do.


there is some kind of circuit board damage. carefully check for burned foil paths on board; around where the relays are. if so, you may be able to "bridge" the broken foil paths with solder. just unscrew the bulbs in the meantime.
