I had same problem last week. My GE JVM1650 Spacemaker stopped after a few seconds of heating. Owned 16 months, manufactured Jan 2005. It was the magnetron, which was replaced yesterday. The magnetron has a 10-year warranty, but I had to pay $161.00 for labor by a GE technician. The call-out fee was waived at my request. I don't know what that amount would have been, but I can't believe the $161.00 for what was about 1/2 hour labor once diagnosed. Good Luck!

pull the cover off of the microwave and check for anything loose. ie fan bracket covers. check the 4 nuts that hold the magnatron in also. if that doesn't fix it maybe you can go to an appliance repair place and see if that have a magnatron tester which is just a piece of plastic with 4 bulbs in it and if the magnatron is working properly with that tester in the it will look like a red strobelight going off in the microwave. if not then your rumbling noise is the magnatron getting ready to go out good luck

I have the same issue. The Handle broke off my GE Microwave Oven (Model JVM1190SY 001). GE does not sell the handle seperately from what I can tell. I just ordered a new door. It's rediculously expensive. I tried to replace the handle with a nice drawer pull but couldn't find a size pull to match and I broke the plastic cover trying to get access to the screws for the handle, which is why I decided to buy the new door. Hopefully installation is not that difficult. This oven was manufactured in 2001, seems the handles have a 7 year life span.

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?
