Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven

GE SpacemakerXL, model #JVM1330BW 002, does everything but run

I have a GE SpacemakerXL, model #JVM1330BW 002, made in 1996. Everything works - timer, clock, fan, lights - except for it won't start when the "start" button is pressed. The cook timer counts down, so it doesn't appear to be a door switch issue. Could it be a fuse, or something worse?

On some ovens, it can be a door switch. I've jiggled a few doors over the years and had some ovens start running. In this situation, the switch assembly is usually out of adjustment. Or the door is not activating the switches properly.

GE spacemakerXL JVM1840CD 002 F3 code showing up


This code will most likely occur if a shorted key panel is detected continuously over 60 seconds. Replace key panel (also called touch pad).

You can purchase that part at Reliable Parts:

I have a GE SpacemakerXL microwave that stopped working after I heard a loud pop. Everything else works, but it does not heat anything. Help?


From the descriptions it likely the magnetron has failed. If you have a digital multimeter post me a comment and I will give instructions to do a rough test.

The microwave doesn't have power


Sounds very much like the magnetron is at the end of its life , if everything else on the oven is working but you don't get that familiar hum as the magnetron kicks in and I am afraid they can cost as much as a new oven especially with the repair cost , time to go to the store and get a new one it will probably be cheaper ...

Everything works except heat


Sounds like you've had a failure in the microwave portion of the unit.

Microwave not heating problems when the timer/controller board appears to function properly, are related to the following components -

1) Diode
2) Capacitor
3) Transformer
4) Magnetron
