Question about GE XL1800 1100 Watts Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Reply to my first enquiry

Thanks for answering my question - however, something I didn't provide you was the actual model number of my microwave which is JVM1870SF02. From what I've been told thus far, the part WB27X10017 is the correct part for my microwave, however, I did have some doubt since on the Hong Kong website, it says this part accommodates up to a 1,000 watt microwave, and since mine is 1,100, I wondered if the information I've received so far is correct. Also, when the magentron needs replacing, does the technician need the "assembly", which I believe includes the diode and antenna? Can't the ones that are in there do when replacing the magentron, or does the whole thing need to be replaced? If you could answer this asap since I have a bid on Ebay to buy just the magnetron, and I don't want to end up having to get the whole assembly after I've already purchased the magnetron itself, that would be a needless expense if I have to buy the whole assembly. Can the diode and antenna be purchased separately?
Thanks for an answer - Nora (

    yes, very helpful - thanks so much. Now I need to find a technician to replace the part. GE service is WAY too expensive. They cover the part cost, but call out fee is $90, then a whopping $250 labor. I could get a new microwave for that!!! So, I bought the part off Ebay ($50), and now I'll look for a tech. Thanks again - Nora

It likely needs all the parts replaced.

GE had a campaign (but not a recall, mind you!) covering several models.

The parts kit for some models (that GE used to pay for) is part # WB27X10489 and is shown in the photo below.

Microwave noise

<- With a full model number from the tag on or in the oven, I may have been able to give you specific help.

Without that essential information, I can only give more general advice.

I would ask for additional information, but FixYa no longer notifies us experts when such inquiries have been answered.

If it's a GE with a model number something like JVM1861BW001, etc., I repair those boards for such problems.

Door came unhinged how do you get it back on

Since you didn't mention the model number, I have to be kind of general.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

My microwave shuts off after cooking for 1 minute or two. display goes blank and then 3 or 4 minutes later the display comes back on again.

You didn't mention your brand or model number, but it sounds like it may be a noisy magnetron.

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

The door handle broke off my GE microwave

Actually the door handle CAN be replaced at a cost much less than pruchasing an entire new microwave oven. And, YOU can repair this yourself and save the cost of a service call. On MOST microwave ovens, you just have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains how to replace the door handle:

If the model number is correct, the part number is WB15X322. The cost is about $40. Replacements may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided.

If you have any questions, or if your model number is different than the one listed, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you

You have to be very sure you order the proper part, because the high voltage parts are part of a tuned circuit.

XL1800 is not the actual model number. It will be something like JVM1860xx001, etc.
