Question about GE XL1800 1100 Watts Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Exploded a musical mug in spacemaker xl1800 microwave.

I put a mug of water in the microwave and it exploded and went on fire. It turns out it was a musical mug. The battery flew out the bottom of the mug and burst into flames. I've cleaned the microwave out and there doesn't seem to be any damage. I'm wondering if the battery exploding may have done some unseen damage and is it still safe to use my microwave.

If there's no damage it should be fine.

I would double-check for cracks, especially in the inner door glass and the screen / mesh.

If it looks fine, heat a cup of water in a microwave-safe container for about 2 minutes and see if it cooks without arcing or odd noises and that it boils in about 2 minutes.

As always, never leave a microwave unattended while running.

Somebody exploded an egg in Kitchenaid Microwave combo oven, and circuitboard went bad. Power but no heat. Coincidence?


The circuit board is in a separate section so the motherboard can't come into contact with the exploded egg. Was any liquid cleaning solution sprayed inside to clean up the mess? There might be some crevices where cleaning solution spray could work its way into the circuit board section since it's very close by. Always use a damp cloth instead of saturating the oven with cleaner.

GE Profile Spacemaker XL1800 microwave turntable


The turntable system consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

On some, you have to cut the motor cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.

I have a GE Spacemaker XL1800 Adora Microwave (manufactured in 2004) and the light bulb went out but I can't located it to replace it. Where is it located? Thanks


If it is meant to be user replaceable, then your owner's manual will cover it.

If not, then you may 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.

Either way, you can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, & testing.

GE Spacemake XL1800 whines every time it cooks works great the


The charcoal filter must be changed every 6-12 months, depending on how much and how the oven is used.

If a filter clogs, it will interfere with cooling and lead to magnetron damage.

It may also be putting a strain on the cooling fan or hood vent exhaust fan, or one of those fans may have a blade loose on the motor shaft.
