Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Spacemaker XL1400 will not heat. Imagine that everything else wor

Will not heat at all it sounds lime when it is suppose to kick in it starts making a buzzing noise. Stop heating all of a sudden. I have a pro coming out tomorrow I just didn't know how much this should cost and how much should I spend before buying a new one. How much is this microwave new? Any advice to save money before spending would be very helpful in this day and age. What really gets me about this is what I do for a living is install fiber equipment for all the phone companies and we are very very tech. We can only charge about 50 bucks an hour now and a appliance guy or boat mechanic these days can and will get away with charging 85 an hour?????not saying that these guys are not techs but this causes all of us to loose money. Go figure I went into the wrong business. That's life I guess. Economy has wverything *** backwards. The only people that are making money are the big companies. Contractors are cutting each others throats. Come on guys let join together and get our prices where they need to be!! Thanks for the help and sorry for the rant!!

The magnetron is bad and possibly the diode, should cost betweet $150-180 to repair. if the tech doesn't have the parts with him the first trip be suspicious, that is the most common repair on your microwave

I have a ge spacemaker XL1400 model # JMV1440WD. Everything works fine but it will not heat anything. Any suggestions?


The magnetron (the part that heats the food) may be bad or the circuitry to the magnetron may have burned out. Basically my advice is that if you have no electrical expertise, it isn't worth fixing. The magnetron if bad, costs almost as much as a new microwave. If you open it up (make sure it has been unplugged for a few hours and don't seen any obvious burnt parts (including a fuse), then most likely the magnetron is done and a new microwave is the way to go.

Let me know how this works out for you.

No heat from microwave


it sounds like the same problem that mine is having....i suspect that the wave modulator, or in laymans terms, the thing that makes the microwaves is bad. time to get a new one as getting that particular unit repaired costs more than just buying a new one.......unless you can find a used part in good working order, or if you know someone who can help you out.
