SOURCE: How to remove the outter door frame on the GE Microwave

I think some of my cleaning solution seeped down in the front door of my microwave and now it has this oranged burned spot in places. It looks like the door is dirty but the residue is actually in between the glass of the door. Any suggestions for what to do? Should I try to take off the door and clean it or buy another door for it?
Thanks! Amanda in Alabama

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

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

SOURCE: Turntable in GE microwave stopped turning.

On some GE models, the turntable motor and stirrer motor are powered off a tap on the internal cooling fan motor and in such cases they will be marked "21V AC".

When I say internal cooling fan, I do not mean the hood vent exhaust fan which you can turn on and off manually.

I'm instead talking about the internal fan which comes on automatically whenever you microwave.

It is vital that the cooling fan runs, or the turntable and stirrer won't work, and magnetron will soon be destroyed.

A quick test is to remove the stirrer cover in the ceiling of the oven. The owner's manual tells you how, and you can download that here.

Then run the oven for several seconds with a cup of water inside while watching the stirrer blade in the top. It should turn very slowly.

If it does not turn or is jerky, it or the cooling fan is not working.


Also, we have a sound clip of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and everything else is working here. The cooling fan's absence will be notable after you hear the clip.

The turntable system otherwise consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If the cooling fan is good, but yours won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

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

Accessing some parts may require you to pull the oven from thew wall and remove the cover.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

SOURCE: GE Microwave oven vent fan not working

You are correct the fan motor is either stuck or needs replaced.

There is no way to do this without removing the entire microwave. In case your not familiar with how microwaves work, there is a capacitor that is very large inside and can hold a charge even after it is unplugged for up to 24 hours, please take action to prevent getting shocked.

If the top of it butts aginst your cabinets you will have to take the bolts from the inside of your cabinets around the front area that that are holding it up out (use 2 people) once they are out it "should" still hang there, next step slowly lift it an inch or so (then you will be no longer on the back suppot) again use 2 people, then you can pull straight out. hope this is what you are looking for.

The turntable system consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

On some, you have to cut the motor cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.

The turntable on my GE Spacemaker Microwave JVM1640BB does not turn.... I can turn it by hand, but does not turn during cooking.


HELLO.

The turntable is the unit in the center of a microwave that you set your food on. It rotates during the microwave cycle, making sure all parts of a dish are properly heated. These are typically made of either hard glass or microwave-safe plastic.

Your microwave turntable may not turn due to one of these problems explain below

(1)If your turntable is removable (as many are for cleaning purposes), it may have come loose from this turning mechanism.place the turntable properl on the turning mechanism.

(2)If your turntable was previously working and now does not any longer, check the settings on your microwave's LCD display to make sure you haven't accidentally turned off the turntable.
Most microwaves have different settings that the user can select with the press of a button, like a "Defrost" setting or a "Popcorn" setting. Certain microwaves may stop the turntable from turning during certain pre-programmed selection modes. Stop your microwave and don't use a pre-programmed mode. Instead, just specify the time using the number pads and start your microwave to see if your turntable begins to rotate again.

(3)The rotating mechanism on the inside of your microwave that rotates the turntable is actually connected to a small motor on the inside of your microwave's case. If this motor burns out or stops working, the mechanism will stop turning. This is something that needs to be replace.

FOLLOW THESE STEPS TO REPLACE THE FAULTY MOTOR.

THINGS NEEDED.

* screwdrivers

* replacement motor

* specific microwave information and part number


1 Open the microwave door, and carefully remove the turntable tray. Also, remove the frame that the turntable is positioned on. Both the turntable and the frame are not secured in the oven, so removing them is a quick process.

2 Remove the bottom panel of the microwave. The Microwave Wizard website explains that the number of screws securing the panel varies depending on the manufacturer and specific microwave. Once the bottom panel is loosened, disconnect its wiring harness in order to completely remove the panel.

3 Locate the turntable motor. The Microwave Wizard website explains that the motor compartment should be positioned below the center of the microwave. Unscrew the motor, disconnect the wires, and remove it from the microwave.

4 Determine the specific part number for the turntable motor so that a correct replacement can be purchased or ordered. Position the new motor into the shaft in the bottom of the microwave. Screw the motor securely into place.

5 Test the microwave to make sure that the turntable motor is operating correctly. The Microwave Wizard website explains that the motor can make noises if it was not positioned evenly in the shaft. Reconnect all of the wires that were detached when removing the old motor.

6 Reinstall the microwave's bottom panel parts, and secure all of the screws in place. Reposition the turntable frame in the bottom of the microwave and place the turntable on top of it. Test the microwave in order to make sure that everything is working correctly.

Hoping to help on more problems.

THANKS.

How can I get the turn table on a GE Micro wave to work? I have the knowlegde to understand on how to fix it but need instruction what to look for.


This is commonly caused by a turntable motor that has worn out and needs replaced.

The motor can be replaced by following these steps:

1. Unplug microwave.
2. Open oven door and remove glass tray and carousel ring.
3. Locate and remove the screws holding the bottom panel (under the microwave) in place. With the screws removed, the bottom panel should open.
4. Disconnect the connector plug from the turntable motor.
5. Reach inside the oven and remove the coupler. This is the small plastic piece that the center of the glass tray sits on. You may have to gently pry up with a flat screwdriver to get it to come loose.
6. With the coupler removed, loosen the mounting screw(s) to the motor and it should easily come out from under the oven.
7. Install new motor in the reverse order of the steps I just provided.

This is a very simple repair. If the model number you have this question listed uner is correct, the part number for a replacement motor is WB26X10135. It sells for about $20 at appliancepartspros.com. You can view an exploded view diagram of your microwave by typing in your model number. The motor is listed as item 43 under the Interior Parts (1) diagram.
If you have any questions, or if your moel number is different, please post back with your complete model number so that I may be able to provide you with better assistance. I hope this help you.

The solution is very simple. Unplug the microwave first. Remove the round dish. Remove the circular riing with the rollers and set aside with the dish. Carefully with a butter knife, pry up the coupler and set aside. Examine to make sure it isn't broken or cracked where it slips over the motor shaft. Remove 5 Phillip head screws from the bottom pan and it hinges down out of the way exposing the motor. Remove 2 screws holding the motor, slip off the plastic dual flat connector and slip back onto a new motor $52.25 + shipping from GE parts. Remember your actual MW Model number is NOT XL-1800 but it is on a metal tag inside the MW on the left side. Put the motor screw in as removed so the shaft is free to stick up the hole in the bottom of the MW. Put the pan screws back up, put the coupler on, the ring in and then the dish and line the slots of the dish up with the star coupler so it catches. Turn on MW, touch the turntable button and make sure it is "ON" and not "OFF" and it should be, with the door shut, turning like a quiet little top as new.

Turn table does not move -how do you take down the GE spacemaker microwave so that the motor can be checked?


The turntable motor can be replaced WITHOUT taking down the microwave. There will be a series of screws along the bottom sides and bottom front. Once removed, the bottom will hinge down in the back allowing you to gain access to the turntable motor.
