Dear Carluc

Right for this one, it is essential that you unplug the oven from the mains and leave it to dissipate any electrical current certainly for 6 hours. Once you have done this, you wil to get yourself a phillips head 6mm screwdiver and unfasten the screws on the back that hold the casing cover to the chassis. This will expose the enternal components, then all you simply need to do, is find the lightbulb, unclip this from the holder and then replace it with one of the same make and model. Fitting and re-assembly is as straightforward as it is taking the unit to bits.

go to http://www.google.com and type in GE Microwave lightbulb........this will get you the details about the bulb, and use the same google search to get your service sheet/ disassembly guide. Easy as 1,2,3.

Hope this works for you and please contact me here if you need further assistance in this or any other matter that is of a technical nature.

Yours sincerely

Oz

A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout (TCO) / thermal fuse on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the magnetron thermostat to open.

Then when it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

When checking thermostats, if it has a hood fan thermostat, that should read open, as opposed to the others, which should read closed.

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

If it goes dead or blows the breaker when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

If it's intermittent or random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or a loose fuse holder, or even an intermittent fuse.

You should do a continuity test on the fuse while it's in the holder (with the microwave unplugged, of course) then turn the fuse by hand or take it out and put it back in, then test it again.

If you remove the fuse, then press the meter leads against the ends, it can allow internal contact to be made and make a bad fuse appear to be good.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

NOTE: There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

SOURCE: Replacement light bulb for GE spacemaker microwave

That model number doesn't look quite right, but nevertheless:

If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (and the owner's manual doesn't address it) some disassembly may be required.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

If it's an over the range type, remove the vent grille across the top and see if bulbs can be accessed there. There may be a panel on the bottom covering the light(s), instead.

If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover. If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

Once it's out of the wall, the outer cover (wrapper) will need to be removed, just as you'll need to do on a counter top model.

On a counter top model, be sure it's unplugged, but otherwise ignore the instructions above this paragraph.

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special driver (such as a T20H Torx type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

I need to replace my over the range GE microwave Model # JVM1330WW002 and don't know what size/capacity it is?


Get cubic foot size by multiplying height x width x depth.
Divide that by 1728. If oven is 12 x 12 x 12 then it's exactly 1 cubic ft.
If 6 x 6 x 6 then it's 1/2 cubic ft or. 50 cu ft

I have GE JVM1540DN1BB microwawe. It beeps all the time and says "keypad sorted" and service needed. The beep sound is annoying and it beeps every 30 seconds


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Touchpad and Control Panel If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad and control panel assembly are probably defective
Touchpad If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad might be at fault. Generally speaking, if the display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but some don't, the problem is with the touchpad.
User Control and Display Board If the microwave buttons don't work the main control board is most likely defective and will need to be replaced.

Main Control Board If the microwave buttons don't work the main control board is most likely defective and will need to be replaced.

Just wanted to know the size of the GE profile microwave model JVM1660BB005. Is it 1.5 cu ft? Looking at a new model JVM1540LNCS to replace it and want to use the same mounting hardware.


In GE microwaves, the first 2 digits of the model number are the cubic footage. 1660 is 1.6 cubic foot, 1540 is 1.5 cubic foot. Take care trying to use the existing hardware, the exact placement of hardware and upper installation screws may vary from year to year or model to model..

No power. outlets is fine. please help. thanx GE Spacemaker® 1.7 Cu. Ft. Over-the-Range Microwave Oven Model # JVM1740DMCC


This will occur if the inverter has experienced a surge or, if the cut off fuse has blown. you can check the cut-off fuse by removing the cover. it is located near the magnetron tube. replace it if it is blown. if the fuse is ok, this will confirm inverter failure. replace the inverter in this case.
