Question about GE JVM1650 1000 Watts Microwave Oven
This model microwave has a message button where you can record a 20 second message. Upon playback the message is very distorted and has a loud hum. I think the microphone is on the main PCB. The PCB unit costs $200 and the speaker costs $85.00. Besides replacing these any hints on repair?
JVM2070 Smart Board

Hi -We have a GE spacemaker XL microwave (man. Feb 2000) model# JVM132OWBOO2. I twon;t so anything. The inside light comes on and the board says "F3" but nothing else. We have unplugged it to try to reboot it and nothing. A few days a go we lost power but I think it worked after that so I don;t think that has anything to do with it. Do you ahve any suggestions? We called GE and they said it means some kind of failure and to try to reboot it. Is 8 years a long time for a microwave? I would think not. Thank you in advance.

I would say there is a defective electrolytic capacitor on the smart board. The loud hum is the clue of interest.
We repair these for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 in most cases.
