Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Replacing old over-range microwave

Have a 1992 Spacemaker over the range microwave that sometimes sounds as if it's not running at optimum (especially in cold weather, it's against an outside wall and has outside vent). It now has a slight electrical smell. It measures less than a cubic foot. Will I have a problem replacing it if I purchase a larger one, which most are? In other words, will it fit in the slot?

Are the grease filters clean?

If you have a charcoal filter, make sure it's not clogged, too. These must be replaced, not cleaned.

In most cases, GE can recommend a "drop-in" replacement oven if you tell them the model number.

They should be able to tell you if larger ones will work in your current slot.

Why does my ge profile spacemaker not heat up


There maybe so many factors. How old is your microwave. From your description, I believe you may have to change your Magnetron. Maybe the magnet is cracked.

What causes a ge spacemaker above the range microwave to quit heating and makes a deeper pitched noise?


This louder, 60 cycle hum is usually caused by a bad magnetron. The unit will not heat when this happens. Repair cost can exceed $100.

No heat


If the fan, lites, all work and appears to be running normal but just no heat, chances are its the magnetron that has failed. Sometimes magnetron will make a deeper noise if it has failed

GE spacemaker Power goes off and clock needs resetting


Try going to the breaker box and shutting off the power to the microwave for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, turn back on and set the clock. This fixed my clock and turntable both. Apparently turning off the power resets the software in the clock.

Ge profile microwave makes noise when running but does not cook the food


hi, sounds like she went but you can disassemble and see what happened, look for chars on the outer case, sometimes they arc from hi output to case use leater gloves to reposition the high output wires away from the outer case, theres an inline fuse in there, or on motherboard , like a car, get the exact replacement, check cooling fan for obstructions . be careful , ges are the best, worth repairing

GE PROFILE SPACEMAKER P/NO 8114-334-730 MICROWAVE TOTALLY DEAD!


Sorry Seanna, but I have been getting a lot of problems with GE microwaves. You can call customer care at 800-432-2737, but out-of-warranty repairs are very expensive. Sounds like your problem may be door latch circuitry which requires service. If your unit is old, consider replacing it as prices are very reasonable.

Loud sounds, but still works?


Well, it's tough to say more surely without hearing it, etc.

I'd say to use it (and always stay close to it when you do) until and unless some other symptoms occur.

And this is not a cop out - sometimes watchful waiting is called for.

It's always recommended that you never leave a running microwave unattended, but in this case even more so.

Be especially aware if either of the fans quits or if any odd smells occur.
