Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
Everything appears to be normal with this oven except it does not cook. When you start it the magnetron starts after the two second delay but only runs for about 1 second then it stops humming and the oven continues to run its time cycle without the magnetron.
I have a JVM1430 microwave, it has a 9 yr warrantee on the magetron, I called customer relations 800 386 1215 and they sent a new magnetron at no charge. Now it all works

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.
Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.
