GE Profile over range microwave jvm2070sh001 - no power or lights

Acts like it is unplugged, but verified power to the unit - just stopped working. No lights or anything. I know there are a couple internal fuses, no clue why they would have blown? Ideas? Thanks

    I checked the fuses and they were fine. Pulled out the little paper troubleshooting guide with flow chart. Looks like the problem is probably one of the thermostats (TCO - thermal cut out or temp sensors). Guess I'll have to pull it down and open it up to see which one is providing the open circuit.

    okay, got the new TCO thermoal cut out today. Replaced it, and now....still no lights on the display, but the vent fan is running - and I cant turn it off? Help please.

Sadly, we hear of this over and over.

This is usually due to a defective or loose magnetron causing electrical interference and disruption in the control circuit board.

If your magnetron was recently replaced, it may have loose mounting nuts or bolts or maybe the wire mesh RF gasket was not installed or got pinched.

It may also need a new high-voltage diode and stirrer, and the cavity may be affected.

GE had a campaign (but not a recall, mind you!) covering several models.

Details are in their bulletin at http://207.234.249.73/mwd/ge_mw_mag_kit_bulletin.pdf

Even if your model is not on the list, the same problem can occur, requiring a kit. I just think the difference is that GE has stopped paying for the repairs.

The parts kit (that GE used to pay for) is part # WB27X10489 and is shown here: http://207.234.249.73/mwd/wb27x10489_ge_mag_stir_kit.jpg

(Your model may use a different kit - this is shown for illustration purposes only).

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

I have a GE space maker the model number is JVM1860.

Same grinding sound when truntable is turning. Stops when you turn turntable off.

Can this be fixed by a layman?

SOURCE: GE Profile microwave remove top grill

1. Unplug power.
2. Remove two screws holding grille, either on top of the front edge of the outer case or in the grille itself.
3. The grille should lift right out. In not, you may need to pull it to the left about 1/4".

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

Hello. You have isolated the problem.

Usually, when your microwave oven doesn't work it all, the internal fuse (thermal fuse) is blown. This fuse protects both you and the oven. When it blows, you need to have a qualified appliance repair technician replace it.

They are put out when something metal is put inside and cooked for a few min. They are also put out with power surge. It protects your mag tube. Plus they just go bad sometimes. Could be a number of reasons but these are the most common.

SOURCE: I have a GE Profile Spacemaker Microwave Touch Pad does not work

Sadly, GE does not make individual parts available for these controllers, so they cannot be repaired.

You have to replace the control panel sub-assembly (part number WB07X10733 in your case) and the best price I've found on that is $370.32 here (compared to $483.25 direct from GE).

In my opinion, this does not do much to inspire brand loyalty...

Or you may be able to find a whole oven on eBay for about that or less.

Sorry to bear bad news. Good luck.

I have a GE JVM2070SH001 micowave . I do not have power to the under unit lights (work,nitelight) but everything else works fine. What is the likely problem?


Either the control board or the switch itself. I can't remember if that on is part of the main keypad or not. Does the unit beep when you press the light button? If it does then you need to follow the wiring to a point where you have power. Best guess...control board

I have GE Profile microwave model PVM1870SM1SS and last week while running, suddently it shut off. There is no power, display buttons and stopped running. Please advise.


From the description a major part has failed, the magnetron is suspect because it suddenly shut down in cycle, if the unit is less than 7 years old it probably has a inverter board and tends to fail, also there is the possibility the keypad control board has stopped working. The microwave in my opinion is worth getting checked out and repaired, but it will be expensive.

My microwave GE Profile Spacemaker 2.0 keypad does not work, I unplugged it and reconnected it and it works at times for a while then it stops again.


You have a failing membrane keypad.

To help you further, I would need your brand and the full model number from the tag on the unit.

It's best to repost a new message to FixYa or contact me directly.
