You will need to replace either the main power relay as its contacts have stuck,or if electronically controlled,then replace the triac on the board,(HINT) it sometimes is mounted on a heat sink to help shed heat during operation and it is has an emitter/base short and the panel can no longer control on-off of the unit

Ge pvm2070smss shuts down


It may be a noisy magnetron if the failure occurs in a second or two of hitting "Start" to begin cooking.

See this FixYa solution. even though your model number is different.

Otherwise, if the internal cooling fan is not running when you are cooking, it will shut down after 30-60 seconds or so and stay off until it cools back down.

Ge profile oven lock button won't go off


  • 1.Press the "Clear/Off" button on the control panel to reset the oven. This will clear the lock setting and unlock the door.

    2.Allow the oven to cool to room temperature to avoid turning the lock on again during this heating cycle.

    3.Reset the oven to the temperature you require to finish cooking by pressing the correct temperature control on the control pad.

    or

  • 1.If your GE Profile microwave won't turn on, unplug it, then plug it back in. A power outage may have occurred due to a power surge. Check your home's fuses and circuit breakers.

    2.Set the clock of your GE Profile microwave. Certain models will not operate until you set the clock. Select the "Clock" key and type in the correct time.

  • 3.Hold down your microwave's "Off" button. You may have accidentally hit the control-lock feature on your GE Profile microwave. Hold down the "Off" button for three seconds to turn the lock off.

  • 4.If the sensors of your GE Profile microwave are not working correctly, remove the food from the machine. If the sensors detect food-surface temperatures over 200 degrees Fahrenheit, it will not work properly until the area cools down.

  • 5.Contact GE Support if you are unable to resolve the issue on your own. Call the GE Support hotline or browse the help library on the GE website. You can also schedule a service visit on GE's website.

    GE Profile Space,aker 1800 microwave is making


    You should keep it unplugged until it's fixed. If it's cooking while it should be off, that can damage the oven or even start a fire.

    It's either a failed door switch or door switch mount, or a bad electrolytic capacitor on the control board, which we can repair for $39.95.

    If you're hearing a fan or motor running, I'd suspect the switch. See this file for help.

    If it's a buzz (like a power line buzz) then I'd suspect the board capacitor.

    Feel free to contact me directly (and please include your full model number from the tag in or on the unit) for more help.

    We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

    Stuck in demo mode after power outage - any ideas on how to get it out? model is JVM2070


    Talked to GE Help Line (1-800-626-2005) and found out the magic key combination for this microwave. Plug in after being unplugged for at least 30 sec. and then press Help plus Boost at same time for 3-4 seconds (until it beeps). The microwave will now be in normal mode (I assume you do this to put it in demo mode as well).

    Microwave making dull thumping noise when NOT in use


    I called a technician out today. Seems like the problem is the circuit board. It wasn't working properly and the sound is the fan. The fan is supposed to turn on when the microwave is in use and off when it is not. In this case, the fan continued even when the microwave was not in operation. A new circuit board has been ordered and will replace the old one when it arrives. For now, I can still use the microwave, but I have to unplug it everytime I finish heating something up. A little inconvenient, but at least it'll still heat my food up in the meantime.

    Microwave turned off


    I always suggest that the hood / exhaust fan be on whenever you're cooking on the stove top. This helps keep grease and steam out of the controls.

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

    Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.

    Otherwise, you may have a bad controller, which we may be able to repair for you.

    GE JVM2070 issue


    what is the make and model number

    Mar 26, 2008 | GE JVM2070 Microwave Oven

    1 Answer

    Fan does not activate when cooking


    The problem may be on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

    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 often can affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on.
