Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
Is There some leakage that affects the smart board or a week component like the power transistor or dried capacitor ?
Thank you so much for helping me.
This is usually due to a defective or loose magnetron causing electrical interference and disruption in the control circuit board.
If your magnetron was recently replaced, it may have loose mounting nuts or bolts or the wire mesh RF gasket was not installed or got pinched.
It may also need a new high-voltage diode and stirrer, and the cavity may be affected.
GE had a campaign (but not a recall, mind you!) covering several models. Details are in their bulletin at http://184.108.40.206/mwd/ge_mw_mag_kit_bulletin.pdf
Even if your model is not on the list, the same problem can occur, requiring a kit. I just think the difference is that GE has stopped paying for the repairs.
The parts kit (that GE used to pay for) is part # WB27X10489 and is shown in the photo here: http://220.127.116.11/mwd/wb27x10489_ge_mag_stir_kit.jpg

Make sure that the program controller is working if not check power - step down supply, the pads are responding- if not faulty pads- or the door switches, if the switch contact are not good then it will not trigger the processor to switch on the waveguides.Since the table turns without a program start and If the lights or fan work without any display or action of program being triggered to start then it can be a possible fault on the main board or the processor. Sometimes insect secretion can short the board and display panel and so the processor can work in such an erratic manner. If so clean,solder and reset the board.
Thank you using Fixya
