Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
The microwave oven no longer works. If the door is opened there is a loud buzzing noise that wont stop util the door is closed. When the buttons are pressed the "beep" sounds weak. Also, if the top vent manages to open, as it normaly should when the oven is running, the buzzing will not stop until the vent flap closes again; it moves really slow and sometimes will not close at all, i have to push the motor so that the vent can close and the buzzing noise can stop. The light insise is dim.
I suspect that it is lossing power somehow.
I have dissconnected & connected several times. No results.
I have not opened the oven, but the noise seems to be coming from directly behind the clock/time display.
The magnatron is shorting, overloading the high voltage transformer. From the picture this looks like an older unit and is probably not worth a magnatron replacement.
