Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
My microwave sylvania type sm81001 stopped running. The clock is working, the heating time is decreasing without heating and the interior light is off, the round table stopped rotating?
What could be the problem and how to fix it.
This may have already been dealt with, but others can benefit from an accurate, thoughtful reply to this problem.
This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

The board is not sending power to your high voltage components or one of your high voltage parts failed. because of the difffuculty of the repair i suggest finding a service center.

If there is no heating please do not switch on unless you have confirmed the fault. It is possible that the Magnetron is faulty, the temperature cut off is faulty or the main capacitor is short. It is also quite possible that insect can get into the oven and create soft spots. When you switch on these will create a short and make the voltage jump and in the long run damage the magnetron.
So Remove cover after disconnecting , check for dirt/moisture in the cabin, if so wipe clean and dry, check the magnetron and area clean and use an jet air to clean off.
Make sure that the program controller is working if not check power - step down supply, the pads are responding- if not faulty pads- or the door switches, if contact is not through the microwave will not work.
Now keeping clear of the microwave, switch on, use a cup of water inside to test.
If you notice any sparks shut off as the magnetron or the main HT capacitor can be faulty. replace with same type. In this case it seems that the program controller board has errors specially if the oven heats and shuts off. remove the board, clean and reset.
If there is heating without any issues, you can use the microwave safely
