Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
GE Spacemaker 2.0, Model # JVM2050BH03, less than 4 years old. Only repair thusfar is I had to replace a burned out turntable motor. When we turn on the microwave, it sounds "sluggish" and then automatically shuts down completely as if it has lost it's power source. We unplug and then re-plug and microwave turns back on but still remains "sluggish". Same problem occurs again.
If the lights dim in the oven when it sounds sluggish,your high voltage capacitor could be beginning to short out and drawing too much current,its under the cover,be very careful and discharge it before touching it in case,because it can store +2100 volts A.C.,then also check the front to back resistance of the high voltage diode as these can leak and cause similar problems,if these are both o.k. then suspect the magnetron tube for drawing too much current,if it shuts down unplug it and again discharge the cap then put your hand near the side of the magnetron and see if its hot this may draw too much current and make the unit run slow and sluggish,then have an ampere draw run on it and see how much its drawing per the specs of the unit

How does the turntable turn during this time
I've seen a lot of premature failure of replacement parts
when was the turntable replaced?
