ARE THE LIGHTS WORKING WHEN YOU OPEN THE DOOR?
DO THE CLOCK WORK? IF YES YOU MAY HAVE A BAD
TRANSFORMER,DO THE LIGHTS GO WAY DOWN WHEN YOU
HIT THE START BUTTON? YOU ALSO MAY HAVE A BAD CAP.
(DO NOT FOOL AROUND IN THIS PART OF THE OVEN)!!!!
BECAUSE MOST TRANSFORMERS PUT OUT ABOUT 2200VAC.
YOU CAN AND WILL BE KILLED IF YOU MAKE A MISTAKE HERE. IF YOU NO NOTHING ABOUT HV. STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!!

Runs but has loud humming sound. Does not heat. Turntable, timer and lights work.


The diode that connects to the capacitor needs to be replaced. Once its replaced microwave will begin to heat again. (If it wasn't heating and wasn't making a humming noise, then your magnetron would need to be replaced). If you are thinking of doing it yourself and need instructions, i'll be glad to help.

The unit is 3 years old and when I turn it on there is a loud hum. Theunit also does not heat but turns the turntable?


From your description it sounds like the magnetron has failed in this oven. That's the part the makes the microwaves to heat the food. It typically fails by shorting out and making a loud hum noise. It not usually worth fixing since the price of a replacement magnetron is almost as much as a new oven.

My jvm 1540 will not heat. any advice?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Microwave not heating properly is caused by a power relay going bad, cold solder joint on the board and/or magnetron (this is only if it makes a loud hum/buzz sound). Also the door hooks and the door-release button should be checked. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.



Thanks

GE Spacemaker XL1800(JVM1850CF001) - Loud Humming noise


You either have a bad magnetron tube (5 or 10 year parts warranty item through GE Factory Service 1-800-432-2737 or www.geappliances.com) or a shorted high voltage rectifier. I think the light being out is a secondary problem.
