    No recall, every now and then it happens with those samsung mags used by ge, try to buy a toshiba mag, global micro part sells them 800-325-8488 and they can ship it to you. P# 2m248j

    sometimes they warranty the mag but ge wants to install it and they will charge you $180-300 to replace with the same junky mag

Need to dissemble microwave oven door GE model JVM 1631 BB 002 to remove spider.

Remove the inner strip around the door called the choke. If there are no screws visable it just snaps in place and does break if you are not very careful. This will give you access to the screws holding the outer frame piece and handle on. keep in mind, any repairs done to the door will necessitate a RFe leakage inspection. Boil some water on the front burners and cook the little guy and leave the door alone.

Enter clock and time every usage

It sounds like it is momentarily losing supply voltage, in other words, like unplugging it and plugging it back in. Check your plug in at the outlet to make sure it is tight. If that doesn't help, then a service call may be in order as something may be loose inside the service area.
