Question about GE Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Not working GE Profile Microwave - JVM2070SK02 - About 12-18 months ago, when turning on the underhood light there was a bright flash/pop. I unplugged and replugged the unit and it seemed to work fine. After several months, the unit would stop/lock up after a few seconds. Unplugging/replugging seemed to solve the problem for a short time. Now it will run for 2-3 seconds and then stop, and the unplugging/replugging does nothing. Any ideas?

It sounds like 2 separate problems:

1) One of the cooktop lights may have shorted. Sometimes this happens and causes damage (repairable) to the control circuit board. Sometimes it will result in the lights or fan not working, or not turning on.

2) You may have a bad magnetron. See this FixYa solution.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

GE Profile PVM2070SM3SS. Stuck in "Demo Mode" Turntable moves, light goes on, no heat. Main keyboard changed 3 months ago.


This may seem crazy... But, I had the same problem, and the only thing that works is to put the exhaust fan on, then microwave. Only then will it actually heat. Now the vent button just broke and pushed in. Ahhhhh

Active Vent opens and closes continuously while unit is idle


I had GE look at the problem today (my microwave is less than a year old and under warranty). He replaced the cam louver and that seems to have fixed the problem. This is a small motor accessible by removing three screws and the active vent door. The whole visit was less than 15 minutes.<!-- from fixya rte -->

GE Profile Microwave - JVM2070SK02 - when turning on the underhood light there was a bright flash/pop - both underhood and interior lights are out - carosel doesn't turn - fan sounds labored - control...


We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week.

At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

Sometimes this will also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.

One surface light bulb on GE Profile microwave keeps burning out


I have the same problem. The left one burns out within a couple of hours use, the other one lasts a couple of months and is then gone. This pattern has repeated over 8 years. I replace them every now and then and then just go without until I get the urge again to fix it. Maybe smaller lower wattage lamps are worth trying...
