GE Microwave Model JES735

I just bought this microwave and when it is unplugged and you close the door it is fine, but as soon as you plug the microwave in and close the door the fan makes a strange clicking noise - any thoughts?

Yes, the fan blade is hitting something inside.Usually by opening the microwave, you can slide or reposition the plastic fan blade on the shaft.Probably this happened in shipping to the store where you bought it.CAUTON:make sure the unit is unplugged before you attempt this.Other option is return for replacement.

You probably have a shorted cook relay.

We regularly repair this problem with our $39.95 service, or you can order a new circuit board from the Pros here, our favorite supplier.

GE microwave (Model JE2160SF03) trips breaker when door opened

Remove the control panel, take pictures of the door switch wiring while they are still connected to the door switches, then remove the door switch assembly. Have someone at the appliance store check each switch and repair the ones that are defective.

I purchased a switch for $7, reinstalled the door switch assembly and the microwave is working fine now.

My microwave GE model # JVM1440WH04 spacemaker has no heat coming out of it. My husband heated microwave lasagna in it last, everything works except for the heat, any solutions?

Push the microwave door tightly closed. The computer will not start cooking until the door is closed for safety reasons. Some models of microwave will give a warning on the screen if the door is open.

Ensure you have programmed a heat setting, entered a cooking time and pressed the "Start" button on the microwave's keypad. Check that the microwave is not set to "Defrost" mode.

Unplug the microwave and wait for one minute. This measure will reset the microwave's internal computer if it has frozen or scrambled. Plug the microwave back in and try again.

Ensure the keypad lock mode is inactive. Most microwave ovens have a lockout feature that prevents children from starting the microwave while unsupervised. Lockout mode is usually deactivated by holding down the button that bears a padlock symbol

Microwave won't shut off

The door switches are what tells the microwave that the door is opened or closed. If they play up they could be causing your microwave to act strangely.

GE microwave won't turn off

Just checked the GE website. Had the same problem with my 5 year old microwave. GE website says to close and open the door quickly three times. First time I did this it didn't work. Second time I closed the door with some significant force and reopened it more quickly. Worked. Unplugged the microwave, plugged it back in, still fine.

Won't shut off

Chances are you have a shorted door switch, but all owners of a GE WES model might want to look at this blog post.

If it's been less than 30 days since you bought it, I'd hurry and take it back to the dealer for a refund, not an exchange.

Otherwise, GE Customer Service is here.

You can contact GE Customer Service here.

If you registered your warranty, that makes things smoother.

If not, no problem, they'll go by the model, serial and date code and refer you to the nearest local servicer.

As long as it's not too hot to touch, and you feel air moving through the vents when it's running, it should be okay.
