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.

SOURCE: The F3 code keeps coming on with a beeping sound

F3 means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

If it's under warranty, you should be able to get it fixed free.

The "C" in the model number means it's made for the Canadian market, and contacting GE Canada seems to be impossible for us here in the States.

So you'll need to contact GE via the info in your owner's manual.

If it's out of warranty, it's best to replace it, GE does not make parts available for JES-series microwaves.

One assumes they're meant to be thrown away when they fail out warranty.

Please don't kill the messenger... :)

Microwave keeps beeping on GE spacesaver JVM1640WB


Does the display say anything?

If it says "F3" then you have a shorted keypad.

Please post a new question with full model number and more detailed symptoms.

Beeper wont shut off


Remove the power plug and Allow the voltage present on the board to drain OFF. After an hour please recheck and if the beep still stays there is fault in the motherboard. Possible that the beeper driver is short and is continuous. If all the other functions are working without any issues, all you can do is to cut off the beeper connection if you are able to remove the board and snip off . Attempt with power plug removed .

The beeping sound when something is done can not be heard. Anything I can do to fix?


Does your microwave have a keypad labeled Beeper Volume? If it does, try changing the level by pressing the button and then pressing 1-5 (0 is mute, 5 is the loudest).

If the button is not present or changing the audio level to 5 doesn't help, the problem is the speaker or the wiring for it. I believe the speaker is on the control panel and is not sold separately. Go to https://www.geapplianceparts.com/GEApplianceParts/Dispatcher and enter the model number. This will give you the parts diagrams and price lists.
Most GE appliance manuals are available from GE: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/ and enter the model and click Submit.

I hope this helps.

Spacemaker xl (1999)low volume beep


According to the owner's manual (available here), there is a beeper volume on some models in this series. If yours has one, press it and then press 0 to 3 to control the volume (0 mutes the beeper and 3 is loudest).

If your model doesn't have the beeper volume control it's just that the beeper is going bad. They sometimes do that, getting faint or quitting entirely. You can't get a replacement beeper from GE, only the entire control circuit board.

The beeper is a piezoelectric type. Radio Shack sells a variety of beepers. If you know someone who can replace electronic components, they may have one that could be used on the board. Changing the beeper for one not the same as the original would not affect the oven's operation or safety, so that's an option. I'd do that myself if I were repairing this for a friend. But you might not be able to get a professional service shop to do this because of liability concerns. They would most likely replace the entire board.

With luck, your oven just has the volume down. Hope this has helped, and thanks for using Fixya!

The beeper will not shut off on my advantium 120 m/w


Is there a code "F3" in the display too?

That would mean the key panel (part number WB27X10467 key PCB assembly) is shorted.

The service manual is here if you or someone you know want to check it out and possibly do the work.

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 find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

Would like to mute G E spacemaker microwave ZEM200SF04


Some GE models have this feature, which is covered in the owner's manual.

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

Otherwise, there are three options:

- desolder the piezoelectric element (beeper)
- cut one of both of its leads
- snap it out of the circuit board

The beeps have become inaudible.


The beeper sound level can be adjusted. Press the BEEPER VOLUME button, then choose 0–3 for mute, medium or loud.

If that doesn't work, unplug the oven a few minutes, plug it back in, then try again.

If you don't have your owner's manual you can find and download one here:

Microwave JVM1630


From what you have described, it appears that the microwave oven works fine, except that the beeper doesn't work like it used to.

This could be caused by a couple of things.

First, there is typically a piezo electric speaker that creates the "beeping" sound. It's possible that this part has failed. It's a mechanical device and can break. This part is relatively inexpensive.

The piezo speaker is controlled by the microprocessor board. It's possible that there is a problem with one of the output lines from the microprocessor that is tied to the speaker.

One way to determine which part is defective, is to try connecting another speaker in parallel across the original speaker, or remove the original and try the replacement (least expensive method).

If there still is no sound, then I would suspect the problem is on the microprocessor board. (most expensive method).

If I can be of further assistance to you, please let me know.

Good Luck!

This answer assumes yours is a Hotpoint RVM1435, as posted.

If not, please reply back with your correct brand and model.

Model RVM1435 does not have a feature to turn off the beeper.
