GE spacemaker profile xl 1800 moving vent will not close


I'm betting your base model number is JVM1860, JVM1861, JVM1870, JVM1871, JVM3660, or JVM3670.
That's the automatic louver you're having trouble with. There are micro switches in the louver assembly which tell the controller when the louver is open or closed.
If one of those switches or the louver motor fails, the louver will not work correctly.
Did your cooktop lights recently fail?
Sometimes the surge from them shorting will cause damage to the circuit board, which can be repaired.
There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
There is a video here showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

Vent fan does not turn on at all


If your cooktop lights recently blew, or if the relay that controls the vent fan is affected, you may need circuit board repair.

Otherwise, it may be a bad fan motor.

There should be a technical sheet hidden behind the grille or behinds the controls. It's very handy to locate and test components.

You can find a video here that shows you how to remove the grille & controller in about 5 minutes.

Vent fan has stopped working. the keypad says vent fan off. when pressing help, it says press this pad. nothing happens.


A low tech solution worked for me.

I too was getting the "Vent Fan Off" message, and despite the fact that everything else worked fine with the microwave, I turned the breaker off and back on from my electrical panel. The fan works fine now.

GE Microwave oven vent fan not working


You are correct the fan motor is either stuck or needs replaced.

There is no way to do this without removing the entire microwave. In case your not familiar with how microwaves work, there is a capacitor that is very large inside and can hold a charge even after it is unplugged for up to 24 hours, please take action to prevent getting shocked.

Stainless steel GE XL 1800 spacemaker works ok except the vent fan doesn"t come on when cooking, which gets to hot and shuts off. The fans work when you push the vent fan buttons and the vent covers...


So the fan motor's 21VAC winding is working. That's good.

But either the fan blade is loose on the shaft (a super glue fix) or the fan motor itself had failed.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

The fan motor is shown on the diagram there as reference # 78, part # AP3192806, located behind the control panel and adjacent to the magnetron.

I'm not sure you have to pull the oven from the wall to replace it, but if you do, the oven installation (& removal) instructions are included on the tech sheet inside the unit.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, and it is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

You can also download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

If you don't find yours I can send you a copy, or if you need more help, feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit).

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

Carosel quit working


There is a motor underneath the turntable. Very cheap to buy. Turn it upside down and start figuring how to get at the motor. I have seen microwave ovens where you have to bend out a piece that is a pre-stamped opening to get at the motor. Usually, it is just "take out screws" until you get enough sheet metal out of the way.

If it's the cooling fan inside the main body of the microwave, I would suspect an open thermistor / temperature sensor. If it's the vent fan (for the grille across the top) then I would suspect the hood thermostat is shorted. The oven should have a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) inside, usually in the control panel frame behind the door open button. It shows these parts and how to test them.
