Question about GE JVM3670 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Extra Large GE Microwave does not heat

I have a BUILT IN GE Microwave (M# jvm3670sf001) that is doing everything but heating the food. All buttons work, fan works, timer works but after time is up food is not hot. This is an "oversized model" that is discontinued and would cost over a $1000 to replace and it must be replaced with this exact size, (all other models are too small for my cabinets and would leave an ~ 5 inch gap between the over and cabinet)

Dear JD,
If you wish to repair the one you have, recommend you go to the SearsPartsDirect website, and type in you model number when asked.
You will see a nice blow-up of your model with parts listed. According to your information, you should either need a fuse, a capacitor, or a magnetron, or any combination of those.
The fuse might or might not be the problem.
The capacitor is the electronic "starter" to start the magneton, and the magnetron is the part that emits radio waves to cook the food.
Understand that, if you choose to"do-it-yourself", the capacitor is a very dangerous item, as it "holds a charge", so be certain to seek an electrical expert before you start the job.
Another choice for you would be to find a good craftsman who could fashion or design and make some panel inserts for the kitchen area if you must get a smaller microwave.
God bless your efforts.

Microwave not heating food


It's most likely the Magnetron. The are not very easy to install and quite expensive. Older models magnetrons cost about 80 bucks from GE. It's probably not something you would want to try and repair yourself. Call a GE service person.

I have a ge built in microwave model # JK90BM2BB but won't heat


This is a sure sign that the MAGNATRON has burnt out and needs replaced! (If the turntable works and the control panal is still working)! The MAGNATRON is what cooks the food)
Please rate my quick response!
