Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven

1 Answer

The timer feature will not turn off. We used the timer feature once and it counted down fine. Then we when pushed 'timer' again the 'timer' symbol would not come off the display screen. We now can't use the timer. Do you know how to turn this off?

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.

You would then need to consult the owner's manual.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

You should be able to download your LG / Goldstar manual here. If not, you can contact them via that page to order one.

Cook works microwave timer stuck


If by "manual timer" you are referring to a knob that you turn to set the cook time, then you may have a failure of the motor that turns the timing mechanism, or a lack of power to it.

I have a Jvm1090aw. After using the convection oven the microwave will not function. Is this a moisture sensor or?


I have a jvm1090aw microwave oven and for some reason it just stopped working. It will still count down the timer but it won't light up and turn on. Also there is a small microwave icon flashing at the bottom right of the screen. Any ideas? Today I tested it again and started it for 30 seconds. The first 8-10 seconds nothing but silent counting down then it turned on for the last 20 seconds. It then turned on again when I tried it immediately after that but nothing 5 minutes later.

Sounds as though you'll have to replace it again. There isn't much else it can be. Is there a chance that the house is not well grounded? Lighting and the such can do this.
given the cost of parts....Look to price shop a new one before fixing this one.

If your model number is in the Sharp R-1500 series, then that's a problem with the bottom door switch or its mount.

Mine also does the same thing however I only need to lift the door upwards slightly (after it's closed) and it engages the High Voltage Transformer, thus working as normal.

Once you know that, you can get it to work every time. I beleive the clips on the door don't properly stop latch in correctly and the safety feature keep the microwave from acutally turning truly "ON".

You need to trace the power feeding the high voltage transfomer. Because the table doesn't turn, it implies that a door switch or safety interlock is the problem.
