The thermocouple located on the magnetron is either weak and sensitive to heat and goes out too soon,otherwise it can be the magnetron tube itself starting to draw too much current and overheating which would lead to this component shutting off power to the magnetron tube,if it doesnt seem too hot when it shuts off,then its this thermocouple on the magnetron tube

When I turn on my microwave. It sometimes shuts power off. The lights will go off and it will not run. I can unplug and plug it back in after a minute or two and it will work fine.


Sounds like the internal cooling fan may be stuck or defective. This will cause the micro to overheat which intern trips an internal heat safety. Once it cools down it will try to start again and repeat the same problem. Cooling fan is usually near the back behind the control panel.

During cooking, the microwave will work for about 3 minutes then completely shut down.There appears to be a complete power failure.After the units sits for about 5 minutes,it resets itself and you can cook...


sounds like the cooling fan has came adrift or stopped working , this will cause the magnatron ( the microwave generator ) to overheat tripping the over temperature stat ,so fix the cooling , but be sooooooooooooo carefull in there , microwaves + really high voltages , not really a job for a non electrician/microwave tech

Mico only heats 4 to 6 minutes


many microwaves require x amount of clearance for exhaust heat, is it installed with the proper clearances?

it is one, not venting and tripping the overtemp,

My ge microwave after running for about 3 to 4 minute it shuts down and will not start up again for 30 minutes model # TH903659B JVM 1650 JVM 1651 what is the problem thanks


If the fan comes on when you put the unit into a cook cycle and all sounds normal otherwise, you most likely have a bad magnetron tube. (Google "GE magnetron failure" and watch how many complaints and articles pop up). The tube overheats and trips the thermal relay causing the unit to shut off until it cools back down and comes on.
Very, very common problem on these models although GE will not admit it.

Microwave runs and then stops, power is good.


Your test demonstrates to me that the magnetron is overheating.

This overheating can be due to the internal cooling fan's not running, a blockage in the air ducts, or just a bad magnetron.

(When I speak of the internal cooling fan, I do not mean the hood / exhaust / vent fan located behind the grille across the top.)

You'd have to consult your manual as to whether the charcoal filter should be used and how and whether it affects cooling.

Also, the charcoal filter cannot be cleaned,. It must be replaced when dirty or at intervals suggested by your manual.

If you do not have your owner's manual, please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you.

There is something on the secondary side which is drawing too much current. I would check all electrolytic capacitors, zener diodes, transistors, and voltage regulators.

Microwave's Power goes off after 3 minutes running..


If the time from START to shut off were EXACTLY 3 minutes, then I would suspect a sensor problem or corrupted code in the microprocesor. But since that time sounds more random, it sounds heat-related, and I would suspect a failing magnetron or a failure in the cooling system. If the cooling fan is not running while the oven is cooking, this failure can occur, and can destroy the magnetron in short order. A cracked magnet (has the oven been dropped?) or other problem can cause a magnetron to go bad and overheat. If it's under warranty, I would definitely contact the manufacturer (see your manual) to find an authorized local servicer. If it's out of warranty, I would balance the cost of a new microwave versus a bench diagnosis fee of $25 or more or an in-shop repair cost of maybe $80 or more.
