Re: ge spacemaker microwave jvm/1650

Mmmm it's so easy,
First disconect the power, take the cover off, moslitly there would be 5 screws and two tab's on the top.
inside on the right hand side the magnetron it's a sylver box measuring about 4 in x 4 in x 5 in. It will have a plasic cover moslitly that would have to be remove first then on the magnetron there is 4 crews and one connector.
It should fall downard after.
If you have a power supply after the secondary , that may also be your problem.

Microwave oven just quit. Have checked fuse and plug. Have had no earlier problems. Do these ovens just ''wear out''? It is 8 years old. It is a GE Spacemaker. (November 2002) GE Spacemaker Serial...

yes they wear out. usally the first part to quit is the unit inside that creates the microwaves called the "magnetron" over time they will wear out, and so will the circuitry that runs the entire microwave, some will last 8 years like yours, some only a year or 2. 8 years is pretty good for the life of a microwave. but yea, its time to get yourself a new one. good luck to you

On the GE JVM 1650 Spacemaker microwave, how do I replace the door?

If replacing the entire door, all that is required is to open the door all the way open and lift straight up on the hinge side of the door. The door will lift off the hinge pins. You may have to remove the upper grill cover (if equipped) on some models for better access. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
