Question about GE JVM1640 Microwave Oven

Spacemaker XL Microwave Oven MODEL JVM1640 Help

Purchased lightbulbs for Cooktop Light / Night Light. Neither will work. I've reset outside fuse box. Everything else on the microwave works. Is there anything else I need to trip? Our home received lightning damage at the end of July. If this microwave were damaged, you would think the entire product wouldn't work. Any solutions? Thank you for your time, Terri

    VEKAT - Your assuming that I know the microwave inside out and talking tech terms. If you could please describe where teh "control circuit" and "related circuit" and "wiring mains fuse" etc. is, that would be helpful.

We have a GE Spacemaker XL Microwave JVM1640 that was purchased in 2003 when we built our house. It worked fine on Friday and then Saturday morning, nothing. No lights, not control panel, no...


Hello Smoore66,

USE CAUTION:
Your first microwave experience will be fine...
In order to take out your main power it has to be early
in your control circuitry. Power Board was a good guess
but there's also a main fuse... (usu: MAGNETRON).

If you are going to work on it YOURSELF ("diy")
be VERY careful to remember ALL COVERS
must be in place before EVER energizing the
MAGNETRON (DANGEROUS High FREQ radio).

Parts abound.... even on eBay & AMAZON
(I'll post APPLIANCE PART sales below)

there ae SERVICE GUIDES for sale...
Helpful hints & how to videos at the
parts houses (below).

I'd say it would be the ultimate in RECYCLING....
but a MICROWAVE is a dangerous appliance:
Weigh your options carefully

Good Luck

I have installed 2 new light bulbs in my GE Profile SpacemakerXL Microwave Oven, Model JVM1660, and now I can't get them to work. These lights are used as Cooktop and Night Lights. I can't find any fuses...


We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan, cooling fan, turntable, and/or inside light operation, too.

Details of our service are at our Web site, along with a video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Feel free to contact me directly with your brand, full model number and symptoms.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.

Power off


Chances are if there is power available to the unit and it will not power up, the internal fuse has opened. This is not a user serviceable type repair. that being said, remove the cover, near the power supply is a ceramic fuse, test/replace the fuse reassemble. if the fuse continues to blow it will most likely be easier to replace the unit than to repair it
