Question about GE JVM1650 1000 Watts Microwave Oven
Once in a while my Microwave shutoff. I than need to unplug and wait about 10 min. and plug again to have it work. I think I need to cahnge my Charcoal Filter. What do you think?
The magnetron may be failing or overheating.
There is a known issue with many GE models.
This is due to a defective or loose magnetron causing electrical interference and disruption in the control circuit board.
If your magnetron was recently replaced, it may have loose mounting nuts or bolts or the wire mesh RF gasket was not installed or got pinched.
It may also need a new high-voltage diode and stirrer, and the cavity may be affected.
