Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
I have the above mentioned microwave. Everything works except for the turn table and the cooking. It will not heat anything or turn the turn table. I check the breaker and all that but again, it has power and everything else works. Just happened out of the blue. Is there a fuse somewhere I can replace?
Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:
- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part (such as a shorted diode)
In this case, I would suspect the primary interlock door switch.
If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
There should also be a a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel. It's very helpful when troubleshooting.
