The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

If it's still out, the problem may be on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

The exhaust fan works, the light below the microwave that shines on the stove top works. It appears to be functioning properly except that it won't heat up food. The GE Spacemaker Model JVM131001 is...

I'm all for fixing appliances but in your case I would suggest replacement. After 24 years of service the magnetron is probably only putting out half of its rated wattage. It could also be one of the reasons of the no heat condition.

GE spacemaker HVM1540DNWW. After I cleaned touchscreen the buttons don't work anymore. i unplugged it for a while, still only get "press clock" message

Take a hair dryer in low / no heat setting or a plain old fan and let it blow on the keypad for a while. Do not let the key pad get overly warm. You got a bit of moisture in the pad membrane and the goal here is to evaporate the moisture. It may take longer than you think to evaporate the moisture. If you let the moisture stay in the membrane too long it will cause corrosion and the key pad will NOT be usable.

GE model JVM5503 (1980): light and exhaust fan work, but touch pad does not respond to pressing buttons and therefore no functions can be initiated.

That would be a problem with your "touch control" but it is no longer available.

The oven will have to be replaced.

Sounds like it had a good run.

I have a GE Spacemaker xl 1400. The lights on the

We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so.

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.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan, cooling fan, turntable, and/or inside light operation, too.

Details of our service are at our Web site, along with a video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Feel free to contact me directly with your brand, full model number and symptoms.

No power to GE Spacemaker Microwave

I have model GE Microwave serial # JVM2070SK02. I start to cook something and it shuts off 5~10 seconds. Keyboard is still lit up, but no clock, fan, light and you cannot operate anything on the key pad. Unplug the unit and it resets. Sometimes it cooks, sometimes it doesn't? It is getting more frequent with the shutting down problem?

Assuming that your internal cooling fan is working, I would suspect that your magnetron is failing.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the
left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

I would check the cooling fan, then suspect the magnetron.

GE PRofile Spacemaker XL Microwave Oven Model# JVM1460 950 watts

Sounds like the problem is in the high voltage. Most common would be magnatron, capacitor and diode. For safety reasons this should be checked by a professional. Look in your owners manual because some high voltage parts have a longer warranty than 1 yr.
