GE Above the Cooktop Oven Microwave JVM1533 Turn table does not move

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?
Thanks, Gary

Re: GE Above the Cooktop Oven Microwave JVM1533 Turn...

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:

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

There should also be a a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel. It's very helpful when troubleshooting.

Our Advantium 120 oven (model # SCA1001KSS 02, Manufactured June 2008)is not working. Began w/ time not coming on when cooking and just a little green microwave light shows while cooking.

Typical of a control microchip failure caused by a power surge. With a microwave as old as yours, it is safest to simply replace the entire oven rather than attempt to fix it, as older magnetrons are likely to fail.

If you know DMM then only you can fix it. Check magnetron continuity and the transformer continuity. Mostly magnetron blows up. Danger microwave has 5000 volts in it Thanks Discharge capacitors

Problem with the GE Advantium (model sca1001fss01) Convection / Microwave Oven Everything works except the microwave. It makes a sound like its working, table turns, but does not heat or cook.

sounds like the magnetron. Youll have to have a technician replace it. if you have a warranty just call the company and they should take care of you.

A child burnt popcorn in our GE Spacemaker microwave. Now, everything works except for the heat. Panel works, light works, turn table heat. Help pls.

Sadly popcorn kills more microwave ovens than peiple imagine. You can get an estimate on a repair but I believe you will probably decide in the end to replace it. Same exact thing happened to me............expensive popcorn!!
