I have a model GE JVM1653BD 001 microwave. Sometimes when it runs it makes a loud growling sound. It appears to be heating normally though. Intermittantly makes this noise.


I have the same model ending in 003, and it has made this noise for most of its life of several years now. Every now and again it runs quietly.

My theory is the cooling fan (not the hood fan) is making noise. The problem began within the first year of operation, and up till now everything is in good working order otherwise. There is no odor of failing parts.

My installation book has no electrical circuit diagrams, and I came upon your question when searching the topic.

Fan works, but unit does not heat.


if the cost of the diode isn't prohibitive to you(normally max $15.00) and you like the oven, but when replacing get a diode with a higher break-down/operating voltage as this may be a problem,get one thats rated for 12,000volts or higher or even a commercial grade diode

Voltage difference


Actually the voltage is the same, it's the frequency which is different. Running 60 cycle equippment on 50 cycle current is usually no problem. Most noticeble difference is that motor rpm will drop (by about 15%).

Stainless steel GE XL 1800 spacemaker works ok except the vent fan doesn"t come on when cooking, which gets to hot and shuts off. The fans work when you push the vent fan buttons and the vent covers...


So the fan motor's 21VAC winding is working. That's good.

But either the fan blade is loose on the shaft (a super glue fix) or the fan motor itself had failed.

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

The fan motor is shown on the diagram there as reference # 78, part # AP3192806, located behind the control panel and adjacent to the magnetron.

I'm not sure you have to pull the oven from the wall to replace it, but if you do, the oven installation (& removal) instructions are included on the tech sheet inside the unit.

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

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

If you don't find yours I can send you a copy, or if you need more help, feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit).

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

No power to GE Spacemaker Microwave


I have model GE Microwave serial # JVM2070SK02. I start to cook something and it shuts off 5~10 seconds. Keyboard is still lit up, but no clock, fan, light and you cannot operate anything on the key pad. Unplug the unit and it resets. Sometimes it cooks, sometimes it doesn't? It is getting more frequent with the shutting down problem?

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.

My ge microwave after running for about 3 to 4 minute it shuts down and will not start up again for 30 minutes model # TH903659B JVM 1650 JVM 1651 what is the problem thanks


If the fan comes on when you put the unit into a cook cycle and all sounds normal otherwise, you most likely have a bad magnetron tube. (Google "GE magnetron failure" and watch how many complaints and articles pop up). The tube overheats and trips the thermal relay causing the unit to shut off until it cools back down and comes on.
Very, very common problem on these models although GE will not admit it.

Question re: installation of turntable motor


If its an AC motor, the wiring will not matter. Look at the numbers on the motor. You will see a voltage rating, RPM rating and if you see the text "50/60 Hz" it is an AC motor and the wiring will not matter.

If its a DC motor, you will see a voltage rating, RPM rating and a + & - for the wiring. If you reverse the wiring, the turntable will turn in the opposite direction.

I'm not sure about all microwave ovens, but the ones I have worked on, the turntable turns in the clockwise direction.

Most likely, its an AC motor. Look for the "50/60" text. If its an AC motor, the wiring will not matter.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you,

Good luck!

It sounds just like the magnetron is bad, overheating and opening the thermostat. This is how it would work if that were the case.

 

One other thing is to be sure that the cooling fan is running and that you feel air flow.

 

You should check the air filter and grille, as well as the outside vent for any blockage.
