GE jvm1631wb003 not heating has a funny machine smell

Most likely the magnatron has gone out and it runs around 90 bucks. If something is funny smelling then by all means don't use it unless you want a fire. If it were me I would replace the oven instead of throwing money nto a repair on a used microvave, they simply don't last as long as they used to. It won't hurt to take the cover off and inspect it for burnt wires that may have grounded out, if none found I would replace the unit.

I have sharp microwave oven model R-231F. On digital display (which is suppose to show time) only 88888 is displayed. suspect fault with the PCB behind display or keypad. Please advise how I can obtain...

First I would suggest a "hard reset". Simply unplug the oven for a minute or two, then try again.

If it still fails, it may be that the keypad has failed, or there is a bad connection due to moisture, grease, etc.

This is an Australian model, so it's hard for me to give more specific information.

But one some US models the LCD and keypad connect to the circuit board via a rubber "zebra strip" and losing that connection can result in a loss of display segments and / or key response.

I've attached a diagram showing where one can clean to restore operation in this case.

My microwave will run for about 3 to 5 seconds and then turn off and I have to reset the clock and date. Then it will go again and do the same thing. What could maybe be wrong?


accorddind to the information pass across this means that your oven develop what is call partial contact this partial occur within the maize and the element i.e the wire which pass con rent from the ac to the microwave it self or the heat provider

these wire can be in two or three colour red and any other colour,
this occur when ever your microwave is about to heat up proper

what you need to do is that un scroll your oven to trace the wire connected to element to see which of the wire have been disconnected

after you being able to get which is loss from it position then look at who others are connected then replace the loss wire ti is position then your microwave will then work again has it's expected to

please note this while doing this make sure that your microwave is not connected to any form of power supply.

Good luck and thanks for using fixya.

We bought model NNst4477s. It was delivered on Friday and used to defrost and also heat other food. It then simply lost all power. There is not even any visual display on the clock etc. The fuse is ok. ...

All microwaves have a fuse inside, usually behind the control panel. You need to know how to open the micro to access this fuse either by removing the control panel, or by removing the outer shell case. Must caution that there is a hi energy capacitor that holds a hi voltage charge and if you touch the wrong connections, you will get zapped. This charge does not go away just because you unplugged the micro. If you find the fuse to be bad (you must have a tester because you cannot see if it is bad), then you also need to assume that something else caused the fuse to go bad. Goodluck, MACGIVOR

It has completely gone dead, there is power coming to the unit. I believe I accidently turned the unit on to heat yesterday with nothing inside instead of turning on the timer thereby allowing the unit to...

You already know it can be a costly mistake. Had it happen in my own home!!!!

Several things can be wrong:

1. The Fuse inside the unit
2. The High Voltage Capacitor
3. The Power Diode
4. (bad news) The Magnetron.

There is an RF window that can be bad also as when a microwave is run with no load it can be burned. It is supposed to help protect the Magnetron from reverse flow RF and help disperse the RF inside the unit.

The next question is: "Are you going to talke this by yourself or have it repaired?" We can you advise on what to do but there are some hazards that you need to be aware of if your going top give it a go..... Just reply here. Thanks.

Replacing- TT Motor- rotates sometimes or stops completely

An AC motor has 2 leads and does not have a polarity. Just conntct the two terminls and reassemble the unit. If nothing else is wrong, it will work fine again.

New problems after installing light bulb.

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour.

Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

I would think you have a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.
