GE JVM2070 issue

Hi, i got home a little bit ago to find that my microwave wasn't working. checked the breakers on house and were fine. electrical outlet also works fine. my girlfriend had used the microwave to cook something while i was gone, then apparently after she was done cooking the food, is when it shut off. it seems to be extra warm-hot around the top of the microwave(near the automatic opening vent. wonder if it overheated? is there a fuse i can replace? thanks for your help.

    I have the same problem. I took my unit down of the wall and opened it up. Checked both the High Voltage fuse and the regular 120V fuse and both are good. I also checked the output from the 120V input board (where the fuses are located) and still had 120V AC coming out. Suggestions? I would definately not want to have to spend $400 to repair a $500 microwave.

    I have a GE Profile Microwave Spacemaker 2.0 model -JVM2070SK02.
    This morning i burned some food in it. When i realized that,i allready had small flames and smoke coming out of the food tray. I stopped and clean everything.
    The microwave is totally dead now, like no electricity goes in it..i don't know if i should try to repair it or to buy a new one...i don't know what part may have failed and if is worth repairing it..

    If anybody has any sugestion i will be very greatful...

    I have the GE JVM2070 and my neighbor who is a Sears appliance repairman says it's the magneto overheating. When it gets hot (about 5 minutes or more of ON time), it loses all power as if the circuit breaker kicked. After it cools down, it works fine until the next time it overheats.

The same thing just happened to us..... there is no fuse on the microwave but we check our fuse box and tried another plug and it still did not work. GE sent us a new smartboard and now I trying to figure out how to get the thing apart.

Heats slow, and then somtimes alarm eee shuts oven off

I'd check the electrical requirements and maybe test it out on a 20A circuit with nothing else connected. it may be an electrical issue at the house where not enough power is getting through.

I've also seen issues where the wires are loose in the breaker box that cause issues.

if you can take the microwave to a friend's house for testing that'll tell you if it's the microwave or your electric that's the issue. If it works fine there then you have to track down your power issue. If it has the same issues there, take it back or replace it.

Oven keeps turning off frequently. Will reset by turning off Breakers and resetting.GE Microwave JVM2070.

My answer is get rid of it. Microwave ovens are hazardous to your health! Any food microwaved is not food anymore except for cancer cells and giving you diabetes. This is one of the main reasons these problems are on the rise in the US. US has never tested MW ovens except for 'leakage'. Not worth fixing or having one. Save yourself! Do some research. Microwaves riddle the cells rupturing them rendering them unfit.

Shorted Touch Screen on GE Spacemaker JVM2070? How do I fix it?

These ovens are nightmares when they fail out of warranty...

The touch screen assembly is not meant to be be taken apart for repairs, only replaced. And the assembly runs about $455 (just part cost!), depending on your full model number suffix.

Add to that the $79 to visit the home, plus $75-90 to actually do the work, plus whatever parts markup, and you'd be better off replacing the microwave.

If you insist on the same model, you might try eBay. They appear there often.

Good luck.

I ended up replacing it with a whirlpool one. It is not a good microwave and I have decided that until GE gets their act together and stop cheating people with planned obsolesce, I will not buy their products.

2 year old ge profile spacemaker Microwave lost all power

Inside unit is a cylinder fuse which can blow for a number of reasons. External cover needs to be removed to access. If you are confident in doing this and can find & check the fuse then it would be my first guess. If fuse is OK then you will need to have repaired. If fuse isblown & you replace then it blows again,you will need to have repaired. regards
