Question about GE JVM1640 Microwave Oven

GE JVM1640 micro wave oven

I believe the oven was installed improperly. i have owned two of these in the past and when i turned the fan on it would circulate the air out the top front of the oven. Or it may be vented out of the bldg. In this case there is a black cover of some sort where the fan blades would normally blow out the top front. But there is no air movement. I suspct it was originally going to be vented out of the bldg but it was not and the covers were left in place, So, the vent does not blow air even though you can hear the motor turining at both speeds. How do i remove the covers so that air will circulate?

Why would my microwave no longer heat or cook?


micro waves use a tube inside that generates micro waves and like a light bulb they eventually blow out. the tube is not considered replaceable and cheaper to just get new unit.

Does it have a fuse in it It make a pop sound while in use and now all power is off on micro wave Lights fan etc


When this happens, it is usually, the magnetron, or the High Power Diode, or both, There is sometimes an internal fuse, however if this is b;own,that indicates a very serious fault, the unit is shutting down, to avoid, fire or explosion. You need to obtain a "Quote" for repair from a professional. MW's are very very dangerous to service.

The microwave appears to be working but it is not heating up the food.


Several things can be wrong, 1st the diode which connects to the capacitor may be bad, the capacitor may be bad or the magnatron may be bad. Unless you are very very familiar with micro waves and high power I suggest a qualified appliance tech. Even with micro wave unplugged the high voltage area which all 3 of these components are can kill or cause serious injury. Sorry but do not feel comfortable telling you how to get to these for your own safety.
