MY MICROWAVE OVEN CUTS OFF AFTER JUST A FEW SECONDS OF COOKING

I HAVE A GE MICROWAVE OVEN MODEL JVM1650BH05
MY HOME HAD A POWER OUTAGE AND A VOLTAGE SPIKE THAT DAMAGED THIS OVEN AND OTHER ELECTRONICS AROUND MY HOME. THIS OVEN WAS DEAD WOULDN'T POWER UP SO I REPLACED THE LOW VOLTAGE TRANSFORMER , THIS POWERED IT UP , BUT AFTER SETTING THE CLOCK, I PROGRAMED THE TIMER AND TURNED ON THE OVEN TO COOK SOMETHING, AND THE OVE CUT OFF AFTER JUST A FEW SECONDS OF COOKING. THE DISPLAY WENT TO XXXXXX OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT AND THE ONLY WAY TO GO FROM THERE IS TO PUSH THE STOP BUTTOM AND RESET THE CLOCK

Test the high voltage capacitor, the rectifier diode.or the magnetron. If all this are fine, test the control board.

If it additionally does not spin and no light, then check also the door switch and fuse.

The diode and capacitors can br tested. The capacitor must be allowed discharge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, even if power is off. Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.

All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.

Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.

Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts. (here in UK).

I have a GE model JVm1650bh05 Microwave that appears to need a new magnatron. It stopped after we switched from defrost mode to full power. Died entirely. No power. We replaced the fuse and it comes on but...


No, not with the same mounting hardware. You have to replace everything. I recommend Panasonic first if you can find it in a hanging hood model, Whirlpool second. Make sure you also install a 2000 joule or larger surge protector. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Try unplugging the unit for 30 seconds then plug it back in. The power outage may have been erratic and the MW did not reset properly.

Advantium oven has no power


A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the thermostat to open. When it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

If it's intermittent or random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or fuse holder.

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
