Question about GE JVM2070 Microwave Oven
I have a JVM2070 that got wet (tub above kitchen leaked). It heats, but there is not the usual amount of noise and the turntable does not turn. The fan does not run while it is heating, but runs when I use the buttons at the bottom of the control panel. I suspect the noise that I am missing is because the "stirrer" is not working. I checked the top and side stirrer motors, and the continuity is good. I also checked all of the TCOs and they have the appropriate continuity. Fuses are fine. Any ideas?
I would suspect the primary interlock (bottom door switch) has failed, or maybe its mount is loose.
If it's not activating, then the oven lamp, internal cooling fan, turntable, and stirrer will fail to come on, and the oven will not cook since the high voltage section will not be receinving power.
The hood vent exahsut fan (which you can turn on and off at will) still runs, since it is a different part of the circuit.
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.
See these files:
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.
If a switch is all you need, we offer a universal type for only $5 postpaid which you can order here.

Hi. It sounds to me like the control PCB was damaged and is not switching power to the cooling fan or T/T motor.... Does the oven light work?
