    Disregard - it was not a fastener, just a tight fit. A well-placed tap with a mallet did the trick !

Very good.

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

If you still need troubleshooting help. feel free to reply back top this discussion.

What does F4 mean for the GE Micro JEM31


"F4" on a GE is normally a defective humidity sensor.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

See these files for disassembly help:

Have a GE Profile Microwave/Convection oven. Microwave works, but the convection part does not. Has been this way since installation. Oven will go through preheat cycle, say that oven is preheated but it...


It may be a bad convection heating element or just a bad thermal cutout.

If it's less than one year old, it will be fully covered under warranty and you can contract GE here to have an authorized servicer come out and fix it free.

If it's out of warranty and you or someone you know wants to check it out, I'd first suggest you take a look at the "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit (behind the control panel, hidden on the left side behind the grille, or attached to the inside of the outer cover) which is very helpful when troubleshooting, & testing.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Otherwise, see these files: safety disassembly

Accessing some parts may require you to pull the oven from the wall and remove the cover.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.


You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.


You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.


I'd recommend that your bookmark this link to your favorites.

That would be either a shorted top door switch or possibly a shorted main relay on the control board.

Either is a pretty simple fix.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

Microwave runs but does not heat


With the symptoms you have, I would most strongly suspect a shorted high voltage rectifier diode or a bad magnetron, or a loose and possibly corroded connection on the magnetron's terminal.

The diode is a fairly cheap fix, and the mag will cost more.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:

Microwave heats bowl but not food


First of all, you must be sure you are using a microwave safe container. If it is not marked as such, it is not.

Try heating a cup of water in a clear glass container. If it still does not work right, your stirrer may be bad.

LIGHT BULB

I have a diagram at my site which helps you find & replace many GE cooktop and cavity light bulbs. It's at http://207.234.249.73/mwd/ge_lamp_replacement.jpg

If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (most often on the rear or side) and the owner's manual doesn't address it, then disassembly will be required.

Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

Similar Problem


Yes of course. The latch system is designed to keep it from cooking with the door open.

If the latch is broken, it will not activate the door switch, which is used to tell the oven it is closed.

We have critical safety & disassembly info (including a how-to video) at our site, linked here.

No turntable, no heat. Light, vent fan and keypad all work...


That would be a problem with your primary interlock switch or its mount.

Not heating at all all of a sudden


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)
