Question about GE Profile Spacemaker 1.8 Cu. Ft. Over-the-Range Microwave
Spacemaker (JVM1871SK) 1800 Microwave is on, but does not heat food, makes noise, and has an smoldering electrical smell when put in micro-waving mode. Purchased 11/2006, used intermitently, problem detected 9/2009.
Remove the case and see if you can localize the smell. Likely suspects are a shorted high voltage diode (replace) or a shorted stirrer bearing (replace stirrer)--a fan-like device located within the sheet metal waveguide near where the microwaves enter the cooking cavity. Make sure to have a cup of cold water in the cooking cavity when looking for problems. The problem could also be the high voltage transformer or the high voltage capacitor, but these are more rare problems. There are no radiation problems with the case off, but there are high voltages associated with the magnetron and it's power supply.
