It is best to take to a repairer. Firstly Microwave can be dangerous to work on if you are not electrically experienced & secondly ther may either be a problem with the thermal cut out or the magnetron, either of which needs specialist investigation.

My under cabinet microwave is not working correctly.


The possible reasons are: 1) The high voltage transformer is broken, 2) The magnetron is broken.

For the 1st problem, no power can be applied to the turntable.
For the 2nd problem, the magnetron is broken with no microwave can be issued.

Microwave works perfectly but does not heat


Sadly your microwave has done it's last cooking. The mechanism you need to make it cook again would cost you more than a replacement microwave.

GE Spacemaker JVM1533WD turntable sometimes works, mostly doesn't


The part with the three rollers that holds your turntable needs to be replaced if you want it to turn. That plastic and those rollers get cooked over time like everything else. The microwave is designed to basically cook with the moisture in anything placed inside the microwave. Those rollers have probably become warped enough so they don't roll properly when heated and that is why they do work somewhat after a night of nonuse. You may be able to find one at a local repair shop for almost nothing. Those parts are pretty generic. Even at a garage sale or flea market. Other than buying from a local dealer you can go on the internet at www.mwoparts.com and get any part for the microwave. Good luck and God bless you.

Please do not operate the microwave (other than short bursts when testing) until the cooling fan is working again.

Otherwise, the magnetron will be destroyed, and that's expensive.

When the magnetron overheats (since the cooling fan is not working) the magnetron thermostat opens up to kill power and protect the magnetron until it cools back down again.

Chances are you have a bad connection, bad relay, or bad component driving the relay on the control circuit board.

If you will scan (at 300dpi if possible) the schematic, and e-mail it to me, along with clear digital photos of both sides of the board, I can probably help you get this fixed.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number).

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

Microwave turntable does not turn


I have the exact microwave you do (ems8000w), the motor failed and I found this one worked perfectly as a replacement.

The original is impossible to find.

Microwave runs with door open


I would say you have a failing door switch or the mount which holds your door switch is loose or broken. In most designs, it is the upper door switch that will produce these very symptoms when it is intermittent or its mount is broken or loose. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure. Slamming the door, damage during shipping or transportation and sloppy manufacturing techniques or materials are the primary causes of trouble with the door switch mounts. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
