Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
I THOUGHT I SET THE TIMER-YET I HAD SET THE OVEnFOR 35min. ABOUT 8 mins. I REALIZED THAT I HAD MADE A MISTAKE--THERE WAS NOTHING IN THE OVEN. NOW NOTHING WORKS. WE CHECKED THE CIRCIT BREAKER - YET THIS DID NOT WORK.
PLEASE GIVE INDICATION OF THE PROBLEM.
THANKS, CONNIE TAYLOR
Without food for the microwaves to be absorbed by, the magnetron (heating device) would have most likely overheated. There is a thermal overload switch (safety device) that acts like a fuse and turns everything off if overheating occurs like that. You would need someone that could take the microwave down, disassemble and check to see if the 'fuse' is bad or the magnetron is bad, they can both be checked with an ohmmeter. If you need to hire someone to do this, it may cost you more than the cost of a new unit if the magnetron is the item that has failed.
