The loud sounds are always the sound of the magnetron failing. It may actually be caused by the capacitive reactance of the large capacitor drying up.

Turn table wont turn


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.

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

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

GE model je 1860, the turn table doesn't work, the 21 v ac crossed the turn table, and the motor is 128 ohm as the spec. Would you think what caused,please Thanks


In GE / Samsungs that have 21VAC turntable motors and stirrer motors, the 21VAC is supplied from a tap off the internal cooling fan motor that cools the magnetron.

It sounds like you have a bad turntable motor.

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 yours won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or possibly a bad 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.

I have GE JES735-BJ02 that heats but makes weird sounds like a rumbling sound.


It could be a failing fan motor or magnetron.

While a microwave should never be left running unattended under any circumstances (as your owner's manual will tell you) it's even more important when one is exhibiting a failure or any odd behavior. So play it safe and stay with it while it's running!

And, as with anything that is not working right, it should be fixed as soon as possible or it can get worse.

If it's less than one year old, it would be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

GE Spacemaker making odd noise


We are having the same problem with our XL1400. I suspect it has something to do with the turn table but don't know for sure. We would be willing to disconnect the turn table...anything to stop the noise but don't know how.

Spacemaker 1800 Turntable


If the noise goes away when you turn the turntable off, it sounds like you have a turntable drive motor that is going bad. They are fairly easy to replace and not terribly expensive. You can access the motor by leaving the oven in place and UNPLUGGED. Remove the bottom panel. You will need to remove the turntable coupler (the plastic piece that spins the glass carousel) and remove a few screws in order for the motor to come out through the bottom of the oven. There should also be a quick connect plug that plugs into the motor. The motor runs about $35 and the turntable coupler (if you wish to replace it as well), runs about $8. The part numbers are 769741 and 769278, respectively at repairclinic.com. I hope this helps you.
