Question about Microwave Ovens

2 Answers

Our new GE microwave, JES1451, has the food plate which rotates at an uneven speed, almost stalling at certain angular positions. The microwave makes a fairly loud periodic [~2/sec] clicking noise when the microwave is heating. Should I exchange if for another one at Lowes? Thank you.

  • Remove the two (2) screws in the mounting plate. Drain elbow will come out of the hole when screws are removed.
  • Rotate mounting plate 90 degrees, insert elbow in disposer drain hole.
  • Begin threading both screws before either is fully tightened.

Siemens HF26066GB plate is moving when door closed and not moving when open


Have a shop look at this---there usually is a recessed safety switch inside the jam that will prevent the unit from working with door open--sounds like the problem may be with it.

The turntable on my GE Spacemaker Microwave JVM1640BB does not turn.... I can turn it by hand, but does not turn during cooking.


HELLO.

The turntable is the unit in the center of a microwave that you set your food on. It rotates during the microwave cycle, making sure all parts of a dish are properly heated. These are typically made of either hard glass or microwave-safe plastic.

Your microwave turntable may not turn due to one of these problems explain below

(1)If your turntable is removable (as many are for cleaning purposes), it may have come loose from this turning mechanism.place the turntable properl on the turning mechanism.

(2)If your turntable was previously working and now does not any longer, check the settings on your microwave's LCD display to make sure you haven't accidentally turned off the turntable.
Most microwaves have different settings that the user can select with the press of a button, like a "Defrost" setting or a "Popcorn" setting. Certain microwaves may stop the turntable from turning during certain pre-programmed selection modes. Stop your microwave and don't use a pre-programmed mode. Instead, just specify the time using the number pads and start your microwave to see if your turntable begins to rotate again.

(3)The rotating mechanism on the inside of your microwave that rotates the turntable is actually connected to a small motor on the inside of your microwave's case. If this motor burns out or stops working, the mechanism will stop turning. This is something that needs to be replace.

FOLLOW THESE STEPS TO REPLACE THE FAULTY MOTOR.

THINGS NEEDED.

* screwdrivers

* replacement motor

* specific microwave information and part number


1 Open the microwave door, and carefully remove the turntable tray. Also, remove the frame that the turntable is positioned on. Both the turntable and the frame are not secured in the oven, so removing them is a quick process.

2 Remove the bottom panel of the microwave. The Microwave Wizard website explains that the number of screws securing the panel varies depending on the manufacturer and specific microwave. Once the bottom panel is loosened, disconnect its wiring harness in order to completely remove the panel.

3 Locate the turntable motor. The Microwave Wizard website explains that the motor compartment should be positioned below the center of the microwave. Unscrew the motor, disconnect the wires, and remove it from the microwave.

4 Determine the specific part number for the turntable motor so that a correct replacement can be purchased or ordered. Position the new motor into the shaft in the bottom of the microwave. Screw the motor securely into place.

5 Test the microwave to make sure that the turntable motor is operating correctly. The Microwave Wizard website explains that the motor can make noises if it was not positioned evenly in the shaft. Reconnect all of the wires that were detached when removing the old motor.

6 Reinstall the microwave's bottom panel parts, and secure all of the screws in place. Reposition the turntable frame in the bottom of the microwave and place the turntable on top of it. Test the microwave in order to make sure that everything is working correctly.

Hoping to help on more problems.

THANKS.

When using on small amounts of food would burn (spark & flame)


Sparks in microwaves are caused by metal things in there. What kind of plate - any metal or gold leaf decoration on it?
Try a microwave safe dish.
Make sure you do not use metal items in microwaves.
I do not know the model number of your nuker, is it a new one or old? How long have you had it, and has it always done this?

Oven cooks but turntable will not turn, so it cooks unevenly. How do I reset the keypad so it goes back to normal factory presets, in case I entered something that stops the turntable revolving. Is there...


The manufacturer has set the rotational plate in motion at the same time the microwave tube is energized. They work together as a team. At no time should the plate be idol, unless you remove it completely, and then only the center spindle will turn by itself. It is possible for the rotational spindle in the center of the oven to break, but that is unusual unless some sort of pressure (like stopping it when it was moving) was applied. Also, it has been reported that some individuals tend to put items with too much weight or too large for the oven to manage; thus damaging the rotator. As long as the oven still provides Microwaves to cook your food, it is still OK. Years ago, there were no rotating plates and using the energy was all it took to get the job done. For even cooking, just manually stop the oven at times and turn the food to avoid over heating in one spot.

Can I temporarily run the microwave without the plate rotating?


Probably not. The plate turns to make sure the food gets cooked evenly. You can take the plate out if you need a stationary object in the oven.

Microwave not working, please suggest


Your magnetron tube has failed. According to the warranty on the Profile Series microwave ovens, the magnetron is covered for 5 years from the date of purchase, but labor is not included. I would call GE Customer Service and when they ask for the model number (which begins with JVM) and the serial number, be sure to give the date of purchase as the date you closed on your house. If they insist upon charging you for a service call and labor, I would call my builder's Customer Service Department and demand (very nicely) that they intervene with GE to waive the service and labor charges. That worked for me (Lennar Homes).
