Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven

1 Answer

I have a ge profile microwave that sometimes heats and sometimes not. All other functions ok- turntablelight normal noise. Repair person came once -- it worked fine when he was here (of course). Any ideas about intermittent heating?? He said if it was the magnetron it wouldn't heat at all. Still under warranty for 2 more weeks. Thanks.

Before you try getting it fixed, try unplugging it from the wall and let it sit for an hour, then plug it in and try it, the safety switch will sometimes re-set and it will go back to normal.

You're going to have to replace the keypad module and possible the control module (do the keypad first). You can try contacting these folks: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/search.aspx?model=jem31sa%20001%20ge%20spacemaker%20microwave
And see if they have a keypad for your unit. Depending on the age of your microwave, you may be best off replacing the whole microwave.

It sounds like the main transformer has failed. It would be cheaper to replace the whole microwave than repair this one. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Hope this helps. Good luck.

No heat


If the fan, lites, all work and appears to be running normal but just no heat, chances are its the magnetron that has failed. Sometimes magnetron will make a deeper noise if it has failed

Ge spacemaker xl 1800 - no heat


HI, the loud popping noise was the Magnetron tube. this is the main heating device. the noise filter is also damaged and, should be replaced as well.

In conclusion, replacing the Magnetron tube and noise filter will fix this unit.

Turns on but not heating food sounds a bit louder


Hi, this is common in most microwaves. this abnormal noise is coming from a faulty Magnetron. this device is responsible for the heating process and, it is damaged and not heating at all at this point.Simply replace the Magnetron and, this unit will start to heat once more.

GE Profile Microwave will not heat


Unfortunately, there is no way to tell which part the microwave needs without opening it up for examination. There are a few parts that, if defective, would prevent the oven from heating.

  • a high voltage transformer which passes energy to the magnetron
  • a magnetron which converts high-voltage electric energy to microwave radiation
  • a magnetron control circuit (usually with a microcontroller)
This is NOT a repair that you would want to attempt yourself. The labor for the repair would cost a minimum of $50 and shouldn't exceed $100. You'll also have to pay for the necessary part if it's still available from the manufacture or their parts distributor.
