I got a GE 1000 Watt microwave free and after cleaning under the heating plate I noticed metal showing thru. Is it still safe to use?


No! it is not safe, the magnetron will arc, " burning it out " or the thermal fuse will kick in preventing damage.

Over range microwave model jvm1650wb008 fan works nothing else does


Check to see if circuit breaker is tripped in the electrical panel, or if it is connected to a ground fault outlet, it may have tripped. Sometimes there is one ground fault outlet serving others in series in the kitchen.

My GE microwave (model# JNM1541DN1BB) is giving me a message; service may be needed keypad shortage. Question 1 how can I fix it myself? Question 2 why did my microwave go out and how can I keep it from...


HELLO.

The GE problem is with the magnetron being to close to the computer. If your microwave runs for a few seconds to minutes then resets with funny characters on the screen, you can follow these simple instructions to fix it.


needed things.

* Phillips screwdriver
* Foil
* Large ziplock baggie
* Tape




* 1 Unscrew the 2 screws in the top vent grill and remove it.

* 2 Unscrew the 1 screw above the computer keypad, then slide it up to unlock it and it will hinge down, revealing the computer circuit board behind the keypad.

* 3 Put a sheet of foil into the large ziplock bag and seal it up.

* 4 Then tape it to cover the whole circuit board in the back of the computer. You may have to let the wires stick out of the middle of your foil covering. The ziplock is to keep the metal foil from short circuiting anything on the computer, and the foil protects the circuit board from the small amount of leaking microwaves inside.

* 5 Lock the keypad back up and plugin the microwave to test it before screwing everything back together.

the way to keep it from happening again is to use the microwave with more caution.

Willing to help to help on other problems.

Thanks.

Microwave will not heat any thing.


the plate has nothing to do with the microwave heating up the food
but the magnetron that heat the food is bad and will need replacing
I would ask a electronic shop how much they would charge to replace it , and if is not worth it to you then a new one would be a good call
