Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Cooking light will not come on

The cooking light that is attached to the bottom of the GE Spacemaker Microwave will not come on. I have several other people in my subdivision that have the exact same problem. They all opted not to fix do to the cost of the part to fix this which from what I am being told is $80.00 alone.

Would to let me know what the part is that needs to be replaced? I have the GE Spacemaker with the model number of JVM1631BB. My email address is brian.w.carter@charter.net

We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for only $39.95 postpaid.

The board does not have to be replaced!

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/

We even have a video on our site that shows you how to safely & easily remove the control panel assembly to send it for service.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Any handy man should be able to handle that but remember, without calling a service technician, you lose the comfort of warranty if something would happen to go wrong.

Sparks are coming from the bottom of the microwave


generally the microwave will only spark if there is metal on the container you are cooking with or you are operating it without anything in it. as it is that old and with all the advances they have made with microwave ovens ... if it is in the budget i would certainly suggest getting a new one

GE Spacemaker XL1800(JVM1850CF001) - Loud Humming noise


You either have a bad magnetron tube (5 or 10 year parts warranty item through GE Factory Service 1-800-432-2737 or www.geappliances.com) or a shorted high voltage rectifier. I think the light being out is a secondary problem.
