Question about GE JVM1650 1000 Watts Microwave Oven
Like other posts, the ge JVM 1650SH01 shuts down after cooking for a few seconds. It will also work with control panel at a 45 degree angle. I tried replacing control board but that did not work. Is this the magnetron issue I keep reading about? If so, does anyone know if GE will send the consumer the parts under warranty or does it have to be from a GE service man? I do not have a problem replacing it myself.Thanks for the help. The micowave was manufactured in Jan. 2005 and I think the magnetron is still under warranty.
I like the information you give.
If the unit will work with the control Panel at a 45 degree angle it tells me you have a loose connection. The 45 degree angle puts enough pressure on the connection to keep it completed. With the Control Panel in it's normal position, the loose connection Heats and Opens the connection. After it cools connection is again made until it Heats up again. Remember Expansion, Contraction. I do not believe you have a Magnetron issue!! A Magnetron does not know if the Control Panel is at an angle.
Can you hear a slight "Click" when the unit shuts down? If so this is a relay opening. When you say you replaced the Control Board. Was this the Control Panel PC Board, or was it the Cook-Relay Control Board? A Door Switch not making solid contact can do this. Is your Door latching down solid? Check for loose connections, not open LOOSE.

Tips for a great answer:
If the microwave runs for a few seconds and then shuts off, a door switch might have failed intermittently. Check each of the door switches for any signs of overheating, arcing, or burning. Also check each of them for continuity. Replace any of the switches that is visibly damaged or that only has continuity intermittently
the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the touchpad and
control panel might be defective. There are several other components
that can cause this problem, be sure to check any other components
before replacing this board.
the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the touchpad might be
at fault. This is not common. Generally speaking, if the microwave
display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but
some don't, the problem is with the touchpad.
the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the thermostat might
be defective. Watch our video on testing thermostat
