Fuses
Door switch
Fuses Usually, when your microwave oven doesn't work it all, the internal fuse (thermal fuse) is blown. This fuse protects both you and the oven. When it blows, you need to have a qualified appliance repair technician replace it.

Door switch If the fuse isn't the problem, check the door hooks and the door-release button. When these are broken, the door switch doesn't activate, so the oven can't work.

My under cabinet microwave is not working correctly.


The possible reasons are: 1) The high voltage transformer is broken, 2) The magnetron is broken.

For the 1st problem, no power can be applied to the turntable.
For the 2nd problem, the magnetron is broken with no microwave can be issued.

Stops working after 20 seconds


The magnetron is over heating causing the thermal fuse to open to cut power, the only option is replace the part, but keep in mind it is the most expensive item to install.

GE jvm1631wb003 not heating has a funny machine smell


Most likely the magnatron has gone out and it runs around 90 bucks. If something is funny smelling then by all means don't use it unless you want a fire. If it were me I would replace the oven instead of throwing money nto a repair on a used microvave, they simply don't last as long as they used to. It won't hurt to take the cover off and inspect it for burnt wires that may have grounded out, if none found I would replace the unit.

From your description it sounds like the magnetron is failing, or the high voltage transformer is not putting enough high voltage to properly drive the magnetron, the other possibility is the solid state triac is not working properly, normally if it becomes defective the power level stays on one only, but you stated even at full power it was only defrosting, so it would seem the triac is working but maybe not they way it should. The cost for parts and labor could be close to the price of a new unit depending on the nature of the repair.

Yes your oven's controller is probably malfunctioning you need to replace the SYSTEM BOARD but I personally suggest to buy an other oven.... the system board will be hard to find and expensive...

Our microwave has stopped working for the second time in two years. When you try to heat something, it hums but not quite like it is heating. There is also a funny smell.

PERHAPS THE MEGATRON HAS GONE BAD, THE MEGATRON IS THE
HEART OF ANY MICROWAVE
AS A EX- FIREMAN, I KNOW FROM FIRST HAND EXPERIENCE THAT
"A FUNNY SMELL " OR " UN-USUALL SMELL COMING FROM AN ELECTRICAL

Buzzing (a little bit louder than normal humm), but no popping


WHEN THERE IS A BUZZING NOISE IT MEANS THAT ONE OF THE INTERNAL COMPONENT HAS FAILED .RANGING FROM A SMALL DIODE TO LARGE PARTS LIKE
THE MAGNETRON OR TRANSFORMER OR CAPACITOR. IF IT IS 10 YRS,OLD YOUR BETTER
OFF GETTING A NEW ONE .BECAUSE YOU COULD INVEST MONEY IN THIS ONE AND HAVE SOMETHING ELSE GO TWO DAYS FOR NOW.WITH A NEW ONE YOU ALSO END UP WITH THE NEW WARRANTY. HOPE I HELPED. KEN62 GOOD DAY!

No light, internal fan...then no display


The light isn't a safety issue but I would think that the fan would be.

The fan is designed to remove excess heat from unit and keep it cool. Without the fan, you're now operating the unit under conditions that it wasn't designed for.

With the unit unplugged, try removing the cover and see if a fuse has blown. If so, replace it with the EXACT value of the original.

See if the unit powers up again. Try heating heating up something for 30 seconds to see if the Magnetron is still functioning.

If so, check to see if the bulb is good. Did the bulb and fan stop at the same time? If so, it might be something in common that controls both.

Don't operate it further until you have it looked at. You don't want to cause something else to fail.

Good luck!

The first thing I would suggest is to turn off the breaker or unplug it from the wall for a few minutes to "reset" it, then try again. If a reset doesn't fix it, I would think you may have a defective magnetron. When you heat something of very low moisture content, it can lead to microwave energy not being fully absorbed, but instead being reflected back to the magnetron. This can damage it. This is usually best left to a pro to repair. In case it might help, your owner's manual can be found online at: http://products.geappliances.com/ProdContent/Dispatcher?REQUEST=SKUOBJECTS&DOCUMENT=Use%20and%20Care%20Manual&SKU=RVM1425BA
