Question about GE JVM1660 Microwave Oven

3 Answers

GE Over range microwave, JVM1660

The microwave suddenly stopped heating. It is functioning normally in every way except it's unable to heat food and liquids, so it appears that it isn't producing micro-waves. It sounds like it goes into it's heating/resting phases, but doesn't heat at all.

    This also happened to us. It runs, but doesn't heat. It also has a strange odor. We aren't sure what to do. We have only tried unplugging it and restarting it.

    I have the same problem, it was working fine then just like that it runs but not heating. Ours is about 7 yrs old, any idea how much a fix is, or even is?

    Thanks

This just happened to ours as well. Apparently the magnetron (device that creates radio waves that heat the food) is broken. I'm trying to pry the darn thing out of our kitchen now so I can replace the magnetron. Look for this part WB27X10489 on Google. I found it on ebay for $65. If it fixes the problem I'll post again.

Micreowave does not heat items. Turntable, fan, and interior lights all work. Sound while running changes after about 3-5 seconds.


The magnetron has more than likely failed, "heats food" but also! the high voltage capacitor and diode can be a source of trouble, chances are repairs will exceed the cost of a new microwave oven.

Have GE JVM2050 over the range microwave, which stopped heating food and water since this morning. All other functions including light, key pad, clock, turntable work normal. The magnetron sound also


if everything works except the heating, it is most likely the mag tube is on its way out.........that is the most common reason for it not too cook.......since the microwave is a GE and it is 3.5 years old, i would say you are better off buying a new microwave, the mag tube starts at around $70.00 and up + the labor it costs too have a service person put it in........around another $60.00

My GE spacemaker microwave doesn't heat up foods. There is a slight bit of heat generated but not much. All timers, lights, etc. work normal. It is a GE model jvm1440. It is about 3 years old. The problem...


IT COULD BE A NUMBER OF THINGS RANGING FROM DIODES TO CAPACITORS TO YOUR MAGNATRON OR THERMOSTAST OR TRANSFORMERS. IT'S DIFFICULT TO DIAGNOSE WITHOUT SEEING THIS MICROWAVE. YOU MAY BE BETTER OFF GETTING YOURSELF A DIFFERENT ONE.

MICROWAVE IS NOT HEATING FOOD


I did more research along with the suggestion of an apprentice to have person to fix the microwave. I was unable to fix it myself. The microwave needs a magnetron .
