Question about GE Microwave Ovens

Open Question

I have a GE Microwave Model JES1358WJ-01. Instead of using the timer feature, my son used the actual microware. It ran for over 8 minutes, it got hot and shut off. Now it doesn't work. Would it be one of the sensors, or is it burned out.

SOURCE: I have an Amana Radarange

Is that model number RR-9?

You can find and order that part (# AP118264) here.

I just hope your magnetron is not blown, too. (Does it still heat?)

You can use a microwave-safe plate in the meantime.

SOURCE: my high power GE Advantium microwave is sparking

Your problem is a common one. When you see arcing inside your microwave, it's because of food or liquid left in the cavity or on the wave-guide cover:

  • If the wave guide has any burn spots, replace it and clean the unit well.

  • If the cavity has any burn spots, spot-sand it smooth and touch it up with microwave interior paint.
Note… If there are any burn holes in the cavity, don't use the unit-seek help from a qualified appliance repair technician.

SOURCE: Panasonic Genius Sensor 1300W

See if this describes what's happening:

  • Put in time, push start and unit runs for 2 seconds, relay clicks, unit goes off. Cook time on display goes off and clock time comes back. Bad upper interlock switch and charred connector
If so, see http://www.microwavedisplay.com/safety.txt , http://www.microwavedisplay.com/disassembly.txt and http://www.microwavedisplay.com/doorsw.txt

Otherwise, if the digital programmer circuit / controller does not get a feedback signal from the inverter for a period of 3 seconds, the controller will stop the cook cycle.

That may be a loose connection in the wiring between the inverter, magnetron, and/or control board, or maybe one of those components has failed.


Due to the lethal voltages used and produced in inverters, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.

We have a JNM1851DBB GE Microware oven. The microwave is not generating any heat and the motor sound is much louder than normal.


The magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

My GE Profile over range microwave spacemaker xl 1800 model jvm1870bf02 was working just perfect until my daughter decided to use the microwave as a timer and actual ran the microwave with nothing inside...


Magnetron is blown.
This high-energy microwave-transmitting device hides behind a small plate on side of oven.
The waveguide sticky-out part looks like a small tube.
Normally, water molecules absorb the energy, heating the food.
Without an absorbing 'load' inside the oven cavity, the high-frequency, high power energy bounces back into the magnetron and it destroys itself. (Magnetron Hari-Kiri).
In a nutshell, tech must renew magnetron.
Then iInstruct family members to never run it empty.

The timer feature will not turn off. We used the timer feature once and it counted down fine. Then we when pushed 'timer' again the 'timer' symbol would not come off the display screen. We now can't use...


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.

You would then need to consult the owner's manual.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

You should be able to download your LG / Goldstar manual here. If not, you can contact them via that page to order one.

Microwave was run with nothing in it


Well sorry to break it too you, but the oven has been compromised. DO NOT USE! It doesn't turn on because the safety features have worked properly and have saved your home from severe damage. Lesson learned. /shrug

F3 on a GE / Hotpoint microwave means you have a shorted keypad.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

If you would like to have us do this for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.
