SOURCE: Microwave makes a loud noise while using.

After you turn it on, it's a loud noise like it's coming from the fan, but other then that it works wonderfully.

SOURCE: constant rattling noise during operation

possibly the "stirrer" motor - this is in the top and turns a metal reflecting ring to disperse the microwaves around the oven more evenly. About $70 on GE site for my oven.

You either have a bad magnetron tube (5 or 10 year parts warranty item through GE Factory Service 1-800-432-2737 or www.geappliances.com) or a shorted high voltage rectifier. I think the light being out is a secondary problem.

SOURCE: My GE spacemaker microwave won't heat and makes an unusual sound

I have the same problem on my oven- model JVM1640WB and called an appliance repairman who is honest and reliable (I've used him before). He said the problem is with the electrode, to fix it is roughly $300. He recommended buying a new microwave rather than fixing it.

Magnetron is done. This part heats the food. GE microwaves tend to have them stop working quite frequently. They basically make up the majority of the cost of the microwave, so instead of replacing the magnetron, you would be better off getting a new microwave.

The GE Spacemaker Microwave Oven model JVM1540 makes a loud fan noise whenyou turn it on. Sounds like the exhast fan but it not?


It sounds like from the description when it is running the noise comes from the magnetron, some microwaves are louder than others, but this could be an early sign the magnetron is going.

Ge spacemaker microwave jvm1640cj03 stopped heating. interior always clean. light, timer etc working.


If it stops heating and the other parts of the oven still work, the problem is with the magnetron circuit. If it makes a loud buzzing noise when you try to heat the food, then the magnetron has shorted out. The replacement cost for the magnetron is almost as much as a new oven, so it does not make sense to have it fixed. Sorry.

My built in lamona oven makes a smell like electicals burning and makes a loud whirring noise when switched on. Any ideas why? have had an electrician in to replace the mechanism inside and the problem is...


This sounds like the magnetron is failing, with a typical smell and a loud noise, there are two additional parts that can be a factor, the high voltage capacitor and diode. To pursue this you will need an appliance repairman or tv technician, the parts and labor will probably run the cost of a new microwave oven.

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.

My GE Spacemaker XL1400 appears to be working, but is not


Hello,

It could be an issue with the diode, high-voltage capacitor or the magnetron itself.

Makes loud noise when running like a high pitched noise


You have a bad magnetron. Just replace the unit. It will cost more to fix than to buy a new one. There are great deals on new microwaves now.
