In there models, the cavity light is located in the magnetron cooling duct on the right side of the chassis.

You need to remove the outer cover to access it. See this file and this file for disassembly help.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

How do I remove case of GE Jem31 microwave. There are only 3 screws on bottom and the back screws at the bottom are star shaped with donut around a peg.


You need a special screwdriver to get those star shaped screws out. I would suggest going to a hardware store or their website and look for "Tamper-proof Torx" screwdrivers or bits. You are probable going to need either a #15 or a #20 bit to get those screws out. Normally there are no screws on the bottom that hold the side cover on unless they are actually on the side of the microwave. The front is held on by clips mounted on the cover itself, so you need to make sure you catch them when you put the cover back on. Good Luck!

How do I remove cover on JEM31 microwave


Remove the screws on the back of the cover. There might also be some on the sides. The cover should slide backward and/or upward after the screws are removed.

One of the most common problems like the one you're having & is an inexpensive option to replace is the door switch, replace it and see if that helps. Should be about $10.00. If that doesn't fix your problem, buy a new micro for about $50.00

Jem31 no heat


The problem is in the magnetron or the inverter board if under 7 years old. Cost to repair will be equal if not more than a new microwave oven.

What does F4 mean for the GE Micro JEM31


"F4" on a GE is normally a defective humidity sensor.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

Ge jem31 microwave will not shut off when door is open


This is very dangerous, unfortunately it is also not easy to fix. There is a small switch behind the plastic actuator that is malfunctioning. You will need to remove the shell. You may need special tools (torx, security) to remove the screws at the back around the perimeter. Be certain you have removed power before you do any work. Also be careful when you remove the shell as the edges will be sharp. Hopefully once you remove the shell you can see the switch (look down from above) and determine if you have the skills and tools to perform the tear-down necessary to get to it. It will not be easy to find a replacement unless you have a good parts store in your area. In my experience this kind of failure requires an almost complete tear-down and it may be easier to leave to a local appliance repair shop who will have the parts and experience to not make a pig's breakfast of it.

It is most likely a door switch, or a magnetron with a loose connection or a failing magnetron. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number (without the suffix) here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 If you still need help, please write back letting us know what you checked and what you found.
