My 3 1/2 year old ge spacemaker over the oven microwave with vent fan has stopped rotating inside.

Did the cooktop lights recently fail?

If so, then the problem is probably on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so.

At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.

Sorry Seanna, but I have been getting a lot of problems with GE microwaves. You can call customer care at 800-432-2737, but out-of-warranty repairs are very expensive. Sounds like your problem may be door latch circuitry which requires service. If your unit is old, consider replacing it as prices are very reasonable.

Gear that rurns turntable very noisey

it may be the fan/fan cover assembly or it may also be the magnatron, after a while of use, before faulting the plates inside dislodge and can rattle around while in use.

Allways unplug when your working inside a microwave, you will most likely have to replace the bulb again and also the fan, or anything else that is damaged, you will need to inspect the microwave for broken parts.

Il get you a few links to repair parts.

Slow heating; sluggish fan; low interior light

The main power supply may have a fault. Also, the HV supply may be weak at the same time.

2 1/4 year old GE Spacemaker XL 1850 Microwave doesn't heat

Check this website:

It sounds like it is either the power diode, the high voltage capacitor or the magnetron. If it is the magnetron, it may not be worth fixing as these can cost well over $100.

Do you hear a buzzing sound?

2 year old ge profile spacemaker Microwave lost all power

Inside unit is a cylinder fuse which can blow for a number of reasons. External cover needs to be removed to access. If you are confident in doing this and can find & check the fuse then it would be my first guess. If fuse is OK then you will need to have repaired. If fuse isblown & you replace then it blows again,you will need to have repaired. regards
