The front control panel should come off after removing a few screws then look for a large capacitor behind it
.DO NOT TOUCH THE TERMINALS! This capacitor is a common cause of the symptoms you describe and costs almost nothing.Changing it may be the fix.

SOURCE: GE SpaceMaker Microwave suddenly stops while heating

I had same problem last week. My GE JVM1650 Spacemaker stopped after a few seconds of heating. Owned 16 months, manufactured Jan 2005. It was the magnetron, which was replaced yesterday. The magnetron has a 10-year warranty, but I had to pay $161.00 for labor by a GE technician. The call-out fee was waived at my request. I don't know what that amount would have been, but I can't believe the $161.00 for what was about 1/2 hour labor once diagnosed. Good Luck!

Sounds like the problem is in the high voltage. Most common would be magnatron, capacitor and diode. For safety reasons this should be checked by a professional. Look in your owners manual because some high voltage parts have a longer warranty than 1 yr.

SOURCE: Removal of GE Spacemaker Microwave oven

1. Unplug the microwave. The plug is probably in a receptacle that is in the cabinet above the microwave, or in the wall above the shelf that is above the microwave.

2. Remove the two (or three) screws that go straight down through the bottom of the cabinet, or the shelf, into the top of the microwave. Have help in holding the microwave when you do this, as the front of the microwave will be able to fall down when the screws are removed.

3. Allow the front of the microwave to rotate down a little, then lift the back of the unit up about 1/2" to 1". At this point, the microwave will be disconnected from the mounting plate on the wall, so you can move it forward and carry it away.

Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part

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

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

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

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

SOURCE: bulb replacement

NO,If you can get to the three phillips screws directly over the vent door then you do not have to take the unit down. Unplug the unit. Remove the top three screws over the center of the louvre and then carefully lower the vent louvre. (Lowering helps me get a better grip on the louvre assembly. Then you will slide the vent louvre assembly about 1/8" to the left and then it will pull straight back and out. In the center is an aluminum cover which has a phillips screw facing you. Remove this screw and the cover plate. The light bulb is directly to the left of the inside of the cover plate. You will see the metal tabs which hold it in place. Pull the bulb housing assembly straight out (to your right) as you face the microwave. Then you will locate your halogen 120V 20W bulb. I just received this from a fellow guest on fix it and I was able to fix my unit 10 mintes ago.Also another tip was to take the inside glass out when reinserting the bulb unit back in because it does get in the way. Good Luck

Have a ge profile spacemaker microwave model# PNM18715M155. The vent fan cmae on while cooking and it wwill not go off. I unplugged and waited 5 min. plugged it back in a the fan still came on.


most likely you have a bad thermal fuse/limit device located behind control panel... there is a small round approx. size of a quarter that has 2 wires attached to it. this device has most likely failed as it is a heat limit and for some reason either the unit got to hot and closed the limit to allow the fan to continue to run or the limit itself has failed... you will have to remove control panel to gain access.... www.sears.com then hit the parts direct link on top and enter your model number to find the part and price ... good luck to you...

My GE profile spacemaker microwave has suddenly quit heating. Would this be the magnetron? If so, my husband is pretty handy, is it difficult to change out?


It's not difficult, but on a GE, there can be a lot of screws to remove!

And some models have a 5-9 year warranty and GE will send you one free.

We may have the service manual which you can download free.

It depends of course, on the model number.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more free information & help.

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

I have a GE profile spacemaker microwae oven. The


Yes. You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I'd recommend that your bookmark this link to your favorites.


There should also be 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.

If yours is a counter top model, you have to remove the outer cover, and the mini-manual will probably be in an envelope inside the wrapper.

No heat


If the fan, lites, all work and appears to be running normal but just no heat, chances are its the magnetron that has failed. Sometimes magnetron will make a deeper noise if it has failed

How do I open the front panel of GE Spacemaker 2.0 ? Fuse?


there are screws either on top of or in the grille that allow you to remove it. after screws are removed, open the door, pull lightly toward you starting at the control side if it does not pull, then it may have to be pushed toward the hinge side, then pulled out. behind the grille, is the screw attaching the control panel. lift the panel up before pulling out. Just to add a thought,if the display lights up it is probably not the fuse, although, in some models there is a high voltage fuse, it is pretty rare.

Everything works except heat


Sounds like you've had a failure in the microwave portion of the unit.

Microwave not heating problems when the timer/controller board appears to function properly, are related to the following components -

1) Diode
2) Capacitor
3) Transformer
4) Magnetron

GE Profile Spacemaker II - Burning smell and no heating


You may have a failure of the H.V. rectifier. I would recommend that a trained technician replace this part due to the high voltage potential.
