Question about GE JVM1653 Microwave Oven
Take the 2 screws out of the top outside grill. Take the 1 screw out of the top of the control panel. Lift the panel slightly and it will tilt out and hang there. Try a cook cycle with the panel in this position. If it works, your problem is interference from your magnetron. It is very common on these units. I do not recommend adding EMI shielding with tin foil as many have been suggesting on the help sites. If you are still under warranty, call GE. If not, call GE and threaten to sue. This is a known problem with these units and they should have been recalled.
