Question about GE Microwave Ovens

Open Question

I have a Spacemaker JVM 140 001 Made in 1986 that has lost all power. It has lost power to the microwave oven, the fan, and the light. It is not the fuse, or the outlet. It is a problem with the unit. Is there a fuse or something that can be checked?

SOURCE: No power to GE Spacemaker Microwave

hi this is tech crazy
the solution to the problem is as follows

Possible causes:

1. No power to outlet (overload or fault in microwave or other appliance).
2. Blown main fuse - likely due to other problems.
3. Open thermal protector or thermal fuse.
4. Defective controller or its power supply.
5. Clock needs to be set before other functions will operate (some models).

SOURCE: oven not heating.

I would say that one is a bad door switch (bottom one) or a bad door switch mount.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

There should be a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel.

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

Please write back with more details if you need further help.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Mmmm it's so easy,
First disconect the power, take the cover off, moslitly there would be 5 screws and two tab's on the top.
inside on the right hand side the magnetron it's a sylver box measuring about 4 in x 4 in x 5 in. It will have a plasic cover moslitly that would have to be remove first then on the magnetron there is 4 crews and one connector.
It should fall downard after.
If you have a power supply after the secondary , that may also be your problem.

SOURCE: my DSpacemaker JVM 1640BJ fan doesn't work

I would wonder if you've had trouble recently with the cooktop lights?

Such failure can cause damage to the control board (which we repair) which can cause either fan to act improperly.

We regularly repair these control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so with a one-year guarantee.

Also I would wonder if it's the internal cooling fan or the hood vent exhaust fan?

When I say internal cooling fan, I do not mean the hood vent exhaust fan which you can turn on and off manually.

I'm instead talking about the internal fan which comes on automatically whenever you microwave.

It is vital that the cooling fan runs, or the turntable and stirrer won't work, and magnetron will soon be destroyed.

Many brands have 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, & testing.

At
our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Accessing some parts may require you to pull the oven from the wall and remove the 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.


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

Feel free to contact me directly (and please include your full model number from the tag in or on the unit) for a free estimate and free tips & do-it-yourself advice.

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

DANGER! HIGH VOLTAGE!

Remember that even when the unit is unplugged some of the microwave parts still carry a deadly voltage!

OK...now that the message is out of the way....you should be o.k. checking the fuse and door switches.

Here is a video on how to remove the control panel.Do this and the ceramic fuse should be located just inside the unit.
Click on the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHcO5HBenK8

Also if the fuse is good...just inside of the cavity of which the control panel was are three door switches. These switches are safety switches. You can see where they are located by looking at the far right hand side of your door...the door latches go into a slot...the slots are where the door interlock switches are located.

Check the fuse first and then the switches if fuse checks good.

If you have any other questions or concerns please ask.

GE microwave lights and fan do not work


If one of the surface light bulbs burnt out it may have shorted out the control board. Take the control board out and look for a burnt spot on the board. It may be able to be repaired with a drop of solder or solder in a jumper wire. Or you can purchase a new board, which may cost more than you want to put into the microwave.

No power to GE Spacemaker Microwave


I have model GE Microwave serial # JVM2070SK02. I start to cook something and it shuts off 5~10 seconds. Keyboard is still lit up, but no clock, fan, light and you cannot operate anything on the key pad. Unplug the unit and it resets. Sometimes it cooks, sometimes it doesn't? It is getting more frequent with the shutting down problem?
