Question about GE XL1800 1100 Watts Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Microwave turntable motor or belt?

My GE Spacemaker Model #JVM1650 turntable no longer turns. I bought the microwave new in 2000. I called the appliance company from which I purchased the microwave and asked them if they could repair it and they told me that they could, but that I might as well buy a new microwave because of the high cost to fix the turntable. After reading some of the posts here, I think that they are just trying to sell me a new microwave. Does anyone here know if this model uses a turntable motor or a belt? The manuals I have for this microwave does not give me an answer. And can a novice like me be able to replace the motor or belt? Thanks for the info on this site!

I assume you don't have an illustrated parts list try and Google one up using make and model number etc. It is also a good guide on what needt to be removed and in what sequence.

As far as the novice part, the turntable is a basket case now what can you hurt, this is how we all learned, try to fix it if you cant then call someone who can, not a big deal.

Bad door switch. Look for burnt terminals on one of the door switches. Replace the switch and cut off the burnt terminals and splice on new ones.

GE Spacemaker microwave turntable no longer turns. Microwave still heats, but turntable has stopped working. What are likely causes? And is this something I can attempt to fix myself?


This is a common problem the turntable motor has failed, it can be replaced.. but Microwaves are VERY dangerous. Due to the enormous energy stored in the main Capacitor, this MUST be discharged to earth B4 attempting any repairs. apart from that though should be easy enough. I do recommend a reputable service center/man tho.

No longer turns


on the bottom of most units you can get to the turntable motor with some side cutters,cut the joins. pull the little flap off and there is your motor run a current through it to see if it turns(how much will say on the motor) if not turning there is your problem

Plate does not rotate freely and make noice


There is no belt in your model - the turntable is motor driven. The problem is either the motor itself or the coupling that engages the glass tray.
The motor (GE part # WB26X10038) is a very common failure as the internal gears are plastic and tend to strip.
