Does it make any noises that it didn't before it failed?? It could be a bad secondary interlock switch, cook relay on the PCB, HV circuit problem or bad magnetron. You need an ohm meter to troubleshoot. If you take the cover off, you MUST short across the High Voltage Capacitor terminals to discharge any possible residual charge to prevent shock hazard.

Turntable stopped working (yes, I pressed the turntable on/off button)


It all depends on your model number of course, but if JUST the turntable is failing, it may just be a defective turntable motor or coupler.

If your internal cooling fan and/or inside / cavity light is defective, too, it may be the internal fan motor, a door switch, or a relay on the control board.

We repair those and can offer more free advice with the full model number and a little bit more detail about what's working, what's not, and when.

You can find handy exploded views and order parts by model number here.

How to change fuse on je2160sf02 ge microwave


There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

Also 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.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

I would also suspect the thermostat associated with your magnetron.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help or see our Web site.

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