Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
I have a GE JVM1441WD003 microwave and the range light and vent fan do not work. When I press the button to turn either of them on, the display shows that it is on but nothing happens. I tested the connections with a volt meter this morning and there is no voltage at the connection point.
What do I need to do?
HI. The absent voltage at the connection points will lead to three possible failed components. The first will be the HV transformer. The second will be a failed HV diode, and the last will be a failed HV capacitor.
The capacitor is easily inspected. This will only require a visual inspection. Most capacitors will pop, or swell dramatically, with the occasional leaking of fluids as well. If none of thees issue are visible on or near the HV cap, move on to the diode and HV transformer for further testing.
In most cases, the HV capacitor will be the issue, but inspecting the HV diode, and HV transformer is recommended before replacing the Capacitor in this case.
(((I must include that there are a couple of fuses that may have blown in this case as well. The magnetron cut-off fuse and the AC in-line fuse. Check both fusees for continuity. replace any blown fuse that is found. highly uncommon, but possible)))

Test the door lock switch, if it is faulty it will cause fan, vent and turntable motor failure.
If door lock switch is OK, then it is probably a fsulty control board.
