Question about GE JVM1190 Microwave Oven
We noticed a burning smell coming from the top vent panel this morning. I looked inside the upper vent and could see wires arching. I removed the upper vent panel to expose the wires. I turnd the unit on a could see that the fan blade was not turning and the arching was coming from the rear contact of where the fuse was located. The red belt on the fan blade was not turning and was wondering if this was putting a load on fan motor and perhaps causing the fuse to arch. Any ideas how I can repair this problem.
If your motor runs freely and normally, I would not worry about the charred or burn smell as that will be there for a while. You can however to lessen that smell is to power everthing off and unplug the ac cord and use isopropyl alcohol with a cleaning brush like they use to clean circuit boards and clean the area thoroughly where the hot spot was. In that way in the future if you have a problem in that same area that persists after your initial fix then you can pin point it to the particular spot if it is a component that for instance drive the motor or is part of that circuitry. However, I do not think you will have anymore problems once you change the belt.
