GE JES1651SJ02 Wont turn off. Fan and table turns and lights is on. Heats fine. I have to unplugged it to turn it off. Please help.


follow this test and fix it. God bless you


  1. Inspect the power cordUnplug the power cord and check for voltage at the outlet. Also inspect for damage, shorts, or burn marks that can be a possible safety hazard.
  2. Bad door switchIf your microwave does not work at all and you know everything is plugged in properly and the outlet is functioning, then also check the door hooks and the door release button. Using a volt-ohm meter on RX1, check your terminals. When your microwave door is closed you should have a reading of zero. Once the door is open the reading should change to infinity. If these readings do not match up, replacement of the door switch is necessary.
  3. Blown fusesTo determine if your fuse has blown out, which may attribute to your microwave not running, you need to pull the fuse out using a pair of fuse pullers. Lay it down and using a volt-ohm meter on RX1, check both ends of the fuse in question. If you do not get a reading of zero, then you will need to replace the fuse.
  4. Bad fan motorLocate the fan and remove the leads. Again using the volt-ohm meter on RX1, check the terminals. If an infinity reading is displayed, it means that the fan has gone bad and requires replacement.

Cuisinart microwave hums with the door closed


If it is cooking with the door closed and the cooling fan is not on, the magnetron will be damaged or destroyed.
It may be a shorted cook relay on the control board.
Otherwise it may be a bad door switch or mount.

I would suggest you check the door switches inside the microwave oven just below the keypad, rectangular in shape. The switches are normally open or closed, set meter to ohms, unhook lead from one side and test with door open and closed. If readings are the same both ways the switch is defective. "check all switches"

My oven is not heating anything although everything else seems to be working fine. Your site said i may need a multi tester, what is this and where might i find one cheap.


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

My microwave kenmore 66222500 makes a humming sound like if it was on when the door is closed. i have to unplugged it or leave door open to stop the humming sound. I tested the magnetron, the primary and...


Possibly a shorted relay on the main timer board?? hum coming from transformer being powered with no fan running. With No fan you can hear it hum. shorted power relay on main board.

Everthing seems to work fan,lites,timer. but when you push the on button the microwave dosen't come on


I hear you saying everything seems fine with your oven except there is no heat action, Is that correct?

In my experience, the trouble can be traced to a faulty micro switch in the door safety interlock system as the #1 trouble.

Please remove the cover - use care to not touch the silver can - find the micro switches on the side away from the hinge.

You can test these switches with a volt/ohm meter in contunity setting. Test each switch independently.

What frequently happens is these switches become burned from arcing due to the door being opened while the oven is operating. The purpose of these switches is to tell the oven the door is closed and it is OK to turn on the magnatron. If the switch is burned, (fails to make a contact) the oven thinks the door is open, door open, no heat ... Make sense?

Find replacement switches at a FixYa.com advertiser, a local appliance parts place or at www.repairclinic.com

This is not the only reason for a oven to not heat ... if this problem persists, please post a note here.

Thanks for using FixYa.com

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.

Microwave won't heat food.


My Whirlpool microwave, over the stove, stopped working when my son used it to heat his food and a heavy sound came out, like something exploded in it. When I check it, there was nothing broke. Everything works fine except that it does not heat. I will appreciate any help
