Question about GE XL1800 1100 Watts Microwave Oven
Capacitor burned out? horrible burnt smell. control front quite functioning. clock doe not function. Had to unplug the unit.
GE microwave unit #JVM1850BH01.
YOUR GOING TO NEED A NEW MICROWAVE . the cap may be bad but the real bad smell you have is most likely the HV tranformer , if the magntron shorts to ground there will be a small smell if you dont pick up on that and your microwave is set to run another few mins the transformer will overheat and burn , then the fuse blows and the controls shut down . the end result , you have more parts bad than you have good . if you google " GE SPACEMAKER MICROWAVE FIRE ' you will see your not the only one , its getting to be COMMON . good luck
