Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven

Microwave not working

The microwave makes a hissing sound when you use it. Shuts down after 4-5 seconds and keeps telling us to reset clock. We have taken the entire microwave apart. Can't seem to locate the problem. Any help would be appreciated. TY and happy new year

I have a microwave model # R-308NW. When I press


if when it shuts off clock resets to first plugged in state, sounds as if control panel is being reset by something (failure of part, or power surge) if clock is still ok and maintains correct time , I'll bet if you notice the cooliing fan is not running correctly (by sound it makes) in those two seconds, this will over heat magnetron and shut off on thermal hi temp (safety) if so fan will need to be serviced by a professional

Spacesaver powers off 2 seconds after resetting clock and time...


The clue is that you have to reset the clock. You are losing power somehow. the Main Board thinks it is being unplugged and it resets the clock and you have to start all over. The fact that after so many times it will finally work tells me that whatever bad connection you have is finally getting hot enough to expand and make a good enough connection to keep working. Intermittant connections are the worse to find. A lot of trial and error to find the problem. can be bad fuse and fuse holder ( in the unit), bad outlet, loose wire at circuit breaker, loose wire at outlet. Even a loose breaker where it snaps onto the buss bar in the Breaker Box. Etc, it an really drive you nuts trying to find it. Try the unit in a totally different area making sure it is on a compleately different circuit breaker and see what it does, if the problem follows the unit, the problems is in the unit. If not, electrical problems, outlet, breaker, panel,

Shuts off after maximum of 8 seconds. does heat when on.


Sounds like the controller board has failed, assuming a circuit breaker has not tripped or fuse has not blown.
If all you do is reset the clock, and then it looses time, regardless of using the microwave, then it points to the clock/controller board.
If this only happens when you use the microwave portion for a few seconds, I would be suspicious of the microwave circuit, where there are several components that could cause the failure.
