Question about GE JVM1640 Microwave Oven
Replaced main board and now unit shuts off because of magnetron overheating
Well its one of two things . there is a tempture sw attached to the magntron that will turn it off if it overheats . so is it the magntron getting to hot because its going bad .or is it getting to hot because the fan blade and air vents are dirty ..... only you can tell that ( if its dirty ) but you will need to take it all apart to see . ... .my guess is that the mahntron is going bad , ge has the worst set up there i have ever seen GE is BAD NEWS when it comes to microwaves . want to have fun GOOGLE " ge spacemaker problems" , and see what pops up ,everthing from no heat to burning down a house !
