The crank arm which raises and lowers the hood has jammed most likely against the vertical bearing guide in the center of the box.
Fix is:
a. If the hood is up, support it somehow so it doesn't crash down. Unplug the whole unit.
b. Pull off the box covering the motor and electricals.
c. Pull off the motor/gearbox assembly. Careful here, as this will release the crank arm which may still be under some load, causing the gearbox assembly to rotate on you.
d. Bend everything back into shape.
e. You may need a new crank arm or gearbox if the shaft to the crank arm is bent.
f. Reassemble. This is most easiy done if the hood is held up by someone or something.

Ge microwave jvm1740 start and clear/off button not working


Sounds like a bad keypad. You will need the full model number off the microwave to look up the correct control panel part number. Sometimes these type of parts can be really expensive & it may make more sense to replace the microwave depending on the age and condition.

AMD 121 won't shut off, or change cycles. Continuously "hums".


Did you try just unplugging from the wall outlet, and let sit for 15 seconds and plugging back in. Sort of like a re-boot on the computer? Just a suggestion.

I have a GE downdraft cooktop and the igniters continuously click


You probably have button or a knob to press to get ignition if there is a bit of gunk stuck in there it will not come out again, you need to remove the knob and clean out whatever is in there.

Ge downdraft vent


try removing the switch from the ribbon connector, and then jumping the two pins momentarily with a screwdriver blade or other metallic tool. It could be that the switch itself is bad. This is the same problem I'm having and I am currently looking for a replacement switch online.
