GE Spacesaver Microwave no longer heats JVM3670SF02

We bought this microwave for around 550. a bit over 4 years ago. It stopped heating 2 years ago, and I paid about 200. for GE to fix it. Now it has happened again, and I know I'm in for another 200 dollar repair. It's a 36 inch, so to replace it would cost me about 700. and it would have to be special ordered! It makes me so mad that GE doesn't stand behind their inferior products! I think this microwave should be recalled with the number of complaints there are on it! (Two of my friends have had the same microwave, and it also lasted only a couple years! This is just LAME!) I would not ever want to buy another GE product, based on my experience with this one!

I would bet that either the first time or this time it is/was the magnetron tube, which has a 10 year warranty on the part, you pay for labor. Check and see what they did the last time, but they did have some trouble with the mags in these microwaves. If it was the mag, I'm not sure what area you are from, but $200 is a little high just for labor.

GE XL 1400 Spacesaver is not heating things up AGAIN!


It's what, about 7or 8 years old? I'd buy a new one on sale. Probably not worth messing with just to squeeze out another year or two. You can pull out the Capacitor and take it to any electronics appliance repair place and have it checked for little or nothing, but if it's bad and you order a new one you have no microwave for a while. IF that's the ONLY thing wrong you're back in business.

The average cost of a over the range microwave is around $550. You would have to call around or go visit an appliance store or a place like HOME DEPOT or LOWE'S to get a price quote on replacement parts. If it is cheaper, FIX IT. Good luck.

Ge spacesaver microwave ...it is 5 years old and stopped heating


I have an over the oven microwave that blew a magnetron after 4 years. Could be the same thing. It was out of warranty for the free labor, so I took it apart (I'm kind of a geek) and found out the magnetron was gone. Shortening the story: I bought a new magnetron from an online place and replaced it and it works fine. If you have someone replace your magnetron, see if you can get it for free-they have a long warranty on the magnetron ($150 part) and at 5 years, you probably qualify. Rich

Your magnetron, HV diode, Capacitor, or control board maybe bad most of these components run with high voltage and difficult to test without the proper equipment
