HI. in most cases, this will lead to a failed Heating device(magnetron tube).It would be wise to check the Magnetron cutoff fuse to be sure of its integrity. if the fuse is blown, simply replace it. if the fuse continues to show continuity, replace the magnetron.

GE Spacesaver JVM140J 001, intermittent Vent Fan on Low


see the next steps for fix it, use the common sense.God bless you
First, with microwave still installed, gain access to the control board and check for voltage from the fan relay. If you are not getting voltage from the fan relay on the control board, and your display says fan is on, then you need a new control board.If voltage is present and the wiring that you can see looks good, then you will have to take the unit down and test for voltage at the fan itself. If the voltage is present there, then test the motor itself and/or start capacitor for the motor. The fan motor assembly will slide out of the top of the unit after you take it down and unscrew 2 screws. Below, in the list of component testing, you will see how to test the motor and start

My GE spacemaker xl1400 model JVM1451BA 001 DOES NOT TURN ON, serial # HT9897895 , it wont make a noise or nothing, not lights, someone told me its a fuse, but I dont know what the fuse is called to go to...


First try plugging it in a different power outlet to eliminate a possible defective AC outlet, than if it still does not work, your friend could be correct it could be a fuse, if you have electrical skills you can verify your self. first unplug the power cable, than unscrew the cover to get to the electronic board, locate all the ceramic fuses and with a good multimeter set to (Ohms) check the continuity of all fuses if it reads 0 ohms it's good if it reads nothing than it is bad, replace that fuse with the same amperage and type than put the cover of the oven back, plug the power cable and give it a test if the fuse burns again than the problem is much worse, it could be a defective safety switch on the door frame or a defective circuit board, take it to a good repair shop...

REMEMBER TO ALWAYS UNPLUG THE POWER CABLE BEFORE OPENING THE UNIT!!!

Hope this helps!

No lights and unable to turn on microwave model JET342-001 microwave oven.


all microwaves have a cavity sensor. and an inline fuse. the fuse will be on the control brd and the cavity sensor will be under the cover and on top of the unit. both are inexpensive and can be replaced easily/checked easily for continuity with an ohm meter. usually this is the problem

Microwave stopped working, no more power in it


the dated microwave is beyond repair parts including the case - to find a microwave to fit the old case and vent hole would be impossible - a new microwave is fairly inexpensive and more feasible

Clean vent


The vent (also known as grill assembly in GE literature) comes off after removing the two screws at the top of the unit and gently sliding the entire assembly to the left about an inch. This will allow the vent to be cleaned of grease, hair, etc., as well as giving some access to the areas behind the vent.

Power comes, turn table and lights come on but no heat... their is a faint plastic metallic smell. I took out the fuse and then the microwave wouldn't power on at all. Any suggestions? Thanks,...


Sounds like the fuse is working fine! *grin* It's probably a bad magnetron or high voltage transformer. Since it's GE, it's much more likely to be the mag. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your base model number (without the suffix) here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
