I would wonder if it's the internal cooling which comes on automatically whenever you microwave or the hood vent exhaust fan, which you can turn on and off manually.

It is vital that the cooling fan runs, or the turntable and stirrer won't work, and magnetron will soon be destroyed.

After approx a minute a regular squeak begins, occasionally missing a beat.Heating is fine.


If the "frequency" of the squeaking is a low frequency, the I would suspect the turntable motor or stirrer motor (if so equipped).

If it is a higher frequency, I would suspect the cooling fan or hood fan motor.

GE Spacesaver JVM140J 001, intermittent Vent Fan on Low


see the next steps for fix it, use the common sense.God bless you
First, with microwave still installed, gain access to the control board and check for voltage from the fan relay. If you are not getting voltage from the fan relay on the control board, and your display says fan is on, then you need a new control board.If voltage is present and the wiring that you can see looks good, then you will have to take the unit down and test for voltage at the fan itself. If the voltage is present there, then test the motor itself and/or start capacitor for the motor. The fan motor assembly will slide out of the top of the unit after you take it down and unscrew 2 screws. Below, in the list of component testing, you will see how to test the motor and start
