Question about GE JVM1650 1000 Watts Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Microwave range top lights

Thanks for your help! First the switch for these lights failed, and I just kept the lights on all the time. Then I was changing a bulb, and I didn't think to cut power at breaker. The light bulb flashed in my hand and burned out the whole lighting system. The other functions of the machine all work normally. I have opened the housing to look for burnt fuses/wires and found nothing. Thanks again for advice!!

    I have the same exact issue with mine. I forgot to unplug the thing when I changed the bulb and it broke in my hand. The fan now does not work. You say that the part is $39.95? ....it is a controller? I would be interested in purchasing this part. Does it have install instructions? I also cannot get the broken bulb out of the socket. I tried with Plyers for about an hour and at this point I need to just replace the wiring assembly for the lights as well. Can you supply that product as well?

This looks like a new entry as opposed to a reply, so I don;t know what advice you got or from whom.

But based on your problem, I'd say I know your problem.

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

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.

I lost the underside light bulb and cannot find the specs to purchase a new bulb. What is the bulb type, size, etc?


You didn't mention your brand or model, but here is a generic answer.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

Be sure to unplug the oven before you remove or insert the bulbs, or circuit board damage can occur. We fix that, too.

We changed the cooktop bulb and now nothing works. When you push the light button the light inside the microwave turns on. If you set the cook time the time counts down but nothing runs.


Check the door interlock switches. They will keep the unit from starting but you will have power everywhere else. If this is helpful, Please leave positive feedback. Thanks, SnugglePants

Remove lid, you'll probably need a pozi drive screw driver and a tamper proof torx drive.
The bulb is located near the front.

The light bulb assembly (bulb and socket are all one piece) is part number
WB36X951.

It is located on the air duct assembly where the door switches are mounted.

You can see an exploded view diagram here.

You'll need to remove the outer cover (wrapper) to get to the bulb assembly.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

See these links before proceeding:
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/safety.txt
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/disassembly.txt

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special driver (such as a T20H type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

If you're not able to find the bulb assembly at your local appliance parts store, you can order one here.

Hood lights do not turn off...


The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

This is far less than a replacement circuit board, assuming it's even available anymore.

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

Burning smell and light switch does not work


The controller needs to be repaired. We regularly repair these control board assemblies for only $32.50 nationwide, and that's much cheaper than replacing the board. For safety, disassembly and other info see http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
