Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven

1 Answer

I have an older built-in microwave oven (GE Model JE1650GA001). When you open the microwave the machine is on and turntable is turning. When you close the door and set the cooking times, the timer begins to count down but nothing within the chamber moves. I'm trying to find out if it is feasible to have this oven repaired because of it's age. Thank you, Blondell Avery

Hello Blondell

Well, as you mentioned, this is a older unit. As for nothing in the chamber moving, it could be a result of a couple of things. Let me explain.

This cold be either the belt driven model or the direct drive model. The fact that the unit is built in, makes it a bit tricky, because it will cost you money either way.

My suggestion would be to buy yourself a new unit. These days Microwaves is so cheap, and the chances that the older unit will stop braking down periodically is good.

This is my opinion, i had the same problem and eventually i spend much more money repairing the older unit, than just buying a new unit.

I really hope this can be of help. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any further questions.

Kind regards
Andrea

Turntable turns when door opened


This is usually caused by a defective door switch, or it may be out of aligment. Since there are a few of them a digital meter is required to troubleshoot the problem area. If you have the equipment I well describe how to test them.
