Question about GE JVM2070 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

2 year old ge profile spacemaker Microwave lost all power

I have a GE spacemaker 2.0 model jvm2070sh. Its 2 years old and just quit one day. house circuit breakers are fine. My wife was boiling water on the stove and had the fan on. She walked away for approx 5 min and when she came back it was dead. Any solutions would be helpful. we have not done anything different from normal. The only thing I did notice about a week ago is that it sounded like the glass plate inside was off track when we ran it. Thanks for all your help.

    Do I have to take the oven down off the wall or can I get to the panel through the bottom?
    Where about is the fuse?
    Thanks

    I appreciate all the help you guys are giving. I went ahead and had a local repair man check the microwave and he said all the fuses were good. He told me the control panel was bad. They want $400 to fix it. The cheapest I can find the part is $305. Part number WB07X10733. Any further help would be appreciated to help me save a few bucks.
    Thanks

Inside unit is a cylinder fuse which can blow for a number of reasons. External cover needs to be removed to access. If you are confident in doing this and can find & check the fuse then it would be my first guess. If fuse is OK then you will need to have repaired. If fuse isblown & you replace then it blows again,you will need to have repaired. regards

    You will need to take down. Fuse located behind control panel, must first remove top vent to expose panel screws. make sure you first unplug unit. Also there may be a stored charge on capacitor, fuse will be in small holder, is a ceramic cartridge, black or white in color, 15 or 20 amp.

Boiling water in my GE Spacemaker Microwave it stopped working and looks as if it is at half power. When activated it makes a half power type noise and the light goes dim. Is this a fuse issue?


Probably not a house fuse. Typically good or bad!! Have you tried it in a totally different outlet?? Could be a bad connection of your circuit breaker to the bus bar in your circuit breaker panel. Try it on an outlet on a different breaker. Or have someone check the power at the outlet when it is running and see if the voltage is dropping.

I HAVE A GE MICROWAVE/BROWNER NODEL WES1384SM2SS. IT HAS STOPPED RUNNING. I CAN SET IT UP TO COOK BUT WHEN I HIT THE START BUTTON NOTHING HAPPENS.


Re: GE JES1384SF Mine quit working so I unplugged it and put a pot of boiling water in it and let the steam dissolve whatever was gumming things up. I used an electric hot plate to keep the water boiling. I let it boil for a couple of hours. I left the door 2/3 open. The microwave is working again. It is four years old and has been used every day, many times a day before it stopped working.

Microwave oven just quit. Have checked fuse and plug. Have had no earlier problems. Do these ovens just ''wear out''? It is 8 years old. It is a GE Spacemaker. (November 2002) GE Spacemaker Serial...


yes they wear out. usally the first part to quit is the unit inside that creates the microwaves called the "magnetron" over time they will wear out, and so will the circuitry that runs the entire microwave, some will last 8 years like yours, some only a year or 2. 8 years is pretty good for the life of a microwave. but yea, its time to get yourself a new one. good luck to you

Microwave won't turn on. Seems like it is not getting power. I checked breaker. I am looking for a fuse. You know where one is? It is a GE Spacemaker(2 yrs old) model # JVM1440WH04


  • Make sure that the microwave is plugged into a grounded outlet. It must be a 3-prong outlet.
  • Make sure the clock is set.
  • Check to see if a programming sequence was entered. Sometimes improper programming or a program sequence such as delay start can cause the touch panel to be non-responsive. Unplug microwave or turn off house circuit breaker for 30 seconds. Plug back in, or reset circuit breaker, and try reprogramming unit.
  • Check the house circuit breaker or fuse box. If the microwave is DEAD and there is no display and nothing works- the problem could be a blown fuse or tripped breaker.

Cannot heat


Sounds like it overheated, tripped the thermostat, then the thermostat reset. Chances are you have a bad magnetron. GE may have a campaign (not a "recall", mind you!) to offer free replacements if yours is a model that has a known history of problems with the magnetrons. I would call GE and ask them about that. *grin* GE Answer Center 1-800-626-2005 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
