Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a
shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an
empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can
be bad without that sound.
Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:
(if it is NOT shorted or burned looking, it's probably fine)
(continuity can be good even though mag is bad!)
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.
