Question about GE JVM1640 Microwave Oven
Hi. Have a GE microwave model #JVM1640WB007. Turntable quit, bought new motor, installed it. Everythink OK EXCEPT--I can't remember which way the wires attach. Does it matter? I don't want to do it wrong and ruin the motor. So, can you tell me, with the motor screwed into place, does the orange wire attach to the left or right terminal? Please help--I am hungry and can't heat up my soup 'til I get it fixed! :-)
Thanks so much--Les
If its an AC motor, the wiring will not matter. Look at the numbers on the motor. You will see a voltage rating, RPM rating and if you see the text "50/60 Hz" it is an AC motor and the wiring will not matter.
If its a DC motor, you will see a voltage rating, RPM rating and a + & - for the wiring. If you reverse the wiring, the turntable will turn in the opposite direction.
I'm not sure about all microwave ovens, but the ones I have worked on, the turntable turns in the clockwise direction.
Most likely, its an AC motor. Look for the "50/60" text. If its an AC motor, the wiring will not matter.
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you,
