    We have a GE spacemaker microwave jvm1650ch01. The turntable has stopped rotating - but it sounds like it is trying. Sometimes it moves an inch or so. The grinding sound makes it seem like the motor still is working. We just turn it off with each use to silence it.

    Can this be repaired?

Hi,

There are many different models that use the same motor for the turntable. If your unit is the model # JVM1842BD001 you need the motor # WB26X10038 if you have the JVM1460SJ you need the motor #WB26X10135. You should be ok using a motor from a different model as long as all the numbers and wires match to the original motor itself. BTW, these motors sell on auction sites for about $20-30

I have a GE spacemaker XL1800. the model number is JVM 1842 BD. The turn table has stopped turning. There is a turn table control and that is turned on. how do I go about repairing it? also, wher


The full model number from the tag on the unit would be JVM1842BD001 or JVM1842BD002 without the spaces.

The turntable system consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

Service manual jvm 2070 microwave


First of all if you're having problems with the touch screen, display, or keypad on these models, separate parts are not available, and you'd have to order the entire control panel assembly, which runs a few hundred to several hundred dollars, depending on the exact model.

Luckily, problems with the cooktop lights or fan can be remedied by ordering a new smart board or having it repaired.

That said, the closest I have come to a service manual for these is the technical manual here.

What is the power load for this model? Amps? Thanks.


You don't sya make and model but the easiest way to find out is to look on the production/serial number label for the exact details.
If you need the current drawn, divide the total Wattage drawn by your mains voltage and that will give you the current in Amps.
Hope that helps.

The turntable system consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If you need to ask how to do this task, you may have no idea of the extremely high voltages that exist under the cover, even when unplugged. I would advise a competent person changes it for you.
