SOURCE: GE JVM1650 Microwave Making Loud Noise

hello Frank. Sorry to tell you that the magnetron is going bad and making that terrible noise. Since the inside of a microwave, even unplugged has up to 2000 residual and deadly volts of electricity I recommend either calling a pro or replacing the unit.

Magnetron is done. This part heats the food. GE microwaves tend to have them stop working quite frequently. They basically make up the majority of the cost of the microwave, so instead of replacing the magnetron, you would be better off getting a new microwave.

Replacing a handle on a kitchenaide microwave


Hello

Unplug the microwave oven from its power outlet or turn off its circuit breaker. Remove the right fuse from the home fuse-box if your microwave is a built-in model.


Open the microwave door and take the top pin off its pivot bracket. Lift up the door and remove it from the bottom bracket. Lay the microwave door with its front side down on a folded towel. Remove the two choke screws from the door frame using a Phillips head screwdriver.


Remove the choke cover with the knife blade, starting from the microwave door's top right corner. Pry out the bottom and top right sides, leaving the side which houses the door handle in place.


Remove the choke tabs from their slots on the microwave door frame using the knife blade. Continue to work clockwise around your microwave door; remove the choker cover when you get to your handle's side to separate it from your choke.


Remove the two handles with the Phillips screwdriver. Remove the handle from the microwave.


Screw the new handle in the position of the original handle. Lay the choke on the microwave door; set the choke cover right on top of it. Insert the choke tabs into their slots on the microwave door frame using the knife blade.


Secure the two choke screws using a Phillips head screwdriver; set the microwave door back on the bottom bracket. Slide the top pin into the microwave's pivot bracket.


Press the top pin down until it pops securely into place.

Door Handle broke off on a 20 year old GE spacemaker microwave over oven. It still works well and I would like to fix the broken door handle.


The door handle can easily be replaced on MOST microwave ovens by removing the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains how to access and replace the door handle:


http://www.fixya.com/support/r3696942-microwave_oven_door_handle_replacement


The average cost for a replacement handle (if required) usually runs about $20 - $40. Replacements may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided.


The door handle is a simple repair that can be done with the door in place, or with the door removed. You do not have to uninstall the oven if this is an over the range model.


NOTE: If you wish to remove the door, all you need to do on most models is open the door all the way and lift straight up at the hinges. You may have to remove the grille cover located above the door on some models to accommodate being able to lift the door.


If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

GE Microwave model JVM1650CH01. Trying to replace door handle." I have removed panel on inside of door and removed 2 screws to handle. It appears that there are screws holding the outside cover of door...


Hi,
This image might help. If not it looks like you have to disassemble the door until you get to the very outer frame, as that is where the handle screws are

The door handle is a simple repair that can be done with the door in place, or removed. And, you do not have to uninstall the oven if this is an over the range model.

It would help, however, to know the number of the microwave oven you are referring to. All ovens are not designed the same and are assembled in different ways. What I have provided you with is the basic information that applies to most ovens. If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

I have a GE Profile Microwave and the handle is broken....


I have the same issue. The Handle broke off my GE Microwave Oven (Model JVM1190SY 001). GE does not sell the handle seperately from what I can tell. I just ordered a new door. It's rediculously expensive. I tried to replace the handle with a nice drawer pull but couldn't find a size pull to match and I broke the plastic cover trying to get access to the screws for the handle, which is why I decided to buy the new door. Hopefully installation is not that difficult. This oven was manufactured in 2001, seems the handles have a 7 year life span.
