Question about GE Microwave Ovens
I have a GE counter top Microwave Convection oven. Model JVM1490WD003. When ever I use the Oven the fan makes a clicking noise as if it is spinning and rubbing against something. As the oven heats up the noise goes away. This does not happen at any other time. It does not happen when I use the Microwave function.
I sounds as if the fan is loose and not spinning properly.
Most likely the wiring harness has worked its way into the path of the magnetron cooling fan resulting in the clicking noise. Have a professional open it up and return the harness to the correct location and wire tie it so it will stay put... your microwave will run quiet as ever once the wire is secure and out of the fan's path

I would suggest to open up the unit if it is out of warranty and observe the fan. You may want to unplug the unit when doing the inspection. Once you have access to the fan, if you can open up the panel (you may have to remove some screws in the process) and try to move the fan yourself. You should see where the loose connection is then have it tightened up. If it is not visible, try to remove the fan to do a closer inspection and see the parts to replace or re attach to remove the noise.
