Question about GE JVM1653 Microwave Oven
I have a 1300 watt microwave and have had it for couple of years. Lately it has started to turn off automaticaticaly after 3 seconds.
This is probably due to a defective or possibly loose magnetron.
If yours has loose mounting nuts / bolts or the wire mesh RF gasket was not installed or got pinched, that can also cause
this RF leakage interference inside the oven.
It may also need a new high-voltage diode and stirrer, and the cavity may be affected.
GE had a campaign (but not a recall!) covering several models.
