Question about GE Profile Spacemaker Over-the-Range Microwave

1 Answer

We have a DVM Adora Spacemaker microwave. The unit was manufactured in May 2008 and purchased a few months after. When heating the unit would make a light clunking sound. This began after the first couple of months' use. Today, the clunking terminated in a "pop" sound and has quit heating. Any ideas on a fix? Thanks, Steve

The unit was taken into a repair shop. The repairman said the magnetron shorted out and the unit failed. Fortunately, the unit had a 5 yr warrantee on the magnetron (1-yr on everything else). Total out of pocket costs are estimated at $65 to reinstall a new magnetron plus the aggravation of two weeks without a microwave. Those are pretty handy devices to be without!

May Spacemaker XL1800 stop heating food. Was working fine. Then just stop


Is this an over the stove type unit? I have had a few problems with my over the range spacesaver. I think the heat from cooking gets up into the microwave and damages it. The steam from me boiling things on the stove had mine quit heating and I purchased a new one. The parts to replace the faulty ones can be quite expensive over $150.00, so its better to purchase a new microwave.

Microwave, adora, stopped heating


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Almost always, on most microwave including GE Adora, no heat with all else working indicates a problem with the magnetron. Since the magnetron produces high RF energy and operates on high voltage, it would be to your advantage to seek the services of a qualified professional.

If on the other hand, the fault of no heat is coupled with no display, error messages, door not locking, no light, then it would be possible for a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair. All that is required is a bit of familiarity with electronic components and circuitry, the use of a DVM/VOM of course safe working practices when repairing electrically powered devices.

Pls post back any other symptoms or indicators other than 'no heat'.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Works but no heat


Possibly a blown fuse inside, or a defective magnatron. If you decide to open the unit, please unplug it first!

GE SpaceMaker Microwave suddenly stops while heating


I had same problem last week. My GE JVM1650 Spacemaker stopped after a few seconds of heating. Owned 16 months, manufactured Jan 2005. It was the magnetron, which was replaced yesterday. The magnetron has a 10-year warranty, but I had to pay $161.00 for labor by a GE technician. The call-out fee was waived at my request. I don't know what that amount would have been, but I can't believe the $161.00 for what was about 1/2 hour labor once diagnosed. Good Luck!
