Question about GE JVM1650 1000 Watts Microwave Oven

1 Answer

GE JVM1650 When microwave energizes after approx 2 seconds pitch of device change and does not heat at all, believe it to be magnatron. This is a model that falls under service bulletin RA-08-02 and magnatron has been replaced 2 times. Is there a way to ensure it is the magnatron and is it still under warranty??

The owner's manual will give you the warranty length. If you don't have yours, you can find it here: http://www.geappliances.com/shop/prts/

You really need to call GE on this. Only they can answer if they will still cover it. GE Answer Center -800-626-2005, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Otherwise, it may fall under your State's lemon laws. You can contact the Attorney General's office, usually via http://www.state.xx.us (where xx is your State's 2-letter abbreviation).

Our GE Spacemaker Microwave (Model No. JVM1650) intermittently kicks off while heating and resets itself so that we have to reenter the time and date. Is this a Magnatron failure?


Saw something like this happen when a magnetron gasket was bad and Rf energy was interfering with the control board. Could also be a connection problem in the power circuit, acting like it was unplugged momentarily. Heavy draw from the High Voltage circuit when in cook mde. Eric

GE Microwave JVM1650 - not heating


If it's been arcing for years, I would suspect your waveguide is damaged and cannot be repaired in addition to the magnetron.

You would have to pay labor. It's generally about $75 to visit you and $90 to do the work.

GE Customer Service is here in case you want to see if they will cover labor or replace the oven, but I doubt it.

Good luck.

Microwave problem


Magnatron is suspect. Need to put a voltmeter on the input (primary) side to the high-voltage transformer (big heavy iron thing in there) Should be getting 120Vac when it goes to cook cycle. Don't touch the other (high voltage) side of this transformer. If the power is there, you are looking at replacing either the magnatron or the high-voltage capacitor and diode. Its affordable if you do it yourself - buy the part on EBAY - lookup "universal magnatron"
Hope ya fix it!
