Probably a defective magnetron; very common for this vintage microwave. there are usually generic magnetrons available; as the original GE part will be expensive.

Mircowave heats propperly, but clock goes blank


Possible fault with your timer controller unit processor board. In many cases insects can cause secretion and so the clock circuit can malfunction. remove the unit and use a air cleaning. heat the board if there is presence of moisture.

All the controls along with the timer / clock work. The problem is that the mircrowave does not heat the food.

Will not heat


Is this a microwave you are talking about? If the clock and timer works, the light comes on and the tray revolves, but it doesn't cook food or heat stuff up, it is most likely the magnetron. Probably best to just buy another, as the cost of repairs not worth it.

Microwave won't heat, already tried replacing fuse. Timer, fan, clock work.


In all probability, the magnetron has died. The magnetron is the part that creates the microwaves that cook your food. Magnetrons are usually covered under a 5- or 10-year warranty and replacing them yourself can be pretty dangerous. I'd suggest you call a technician.

Microwave doesn't heat anything


This more than likely is the magnatron,< heats food >, making noise and not working. it isn,t really easy fix and can be done if you get part and experienced person to walk you through it. Most GE magnatrons have at least 5 yr warranty and if it isn't that old call them first.

Can't use the microwave at all


you have either a bad keypad or control board.

If you have operation of some buttons and not others its the keypad. if you have no operation out of the buttons at all you have a bad control board.

If you turn your microwave on and it sets and the timer counts down you have a bad interlock switch..

please let me know exactly what your microwave does when you set the cook time

Hood range microwave not heating up


We had one that did the same thing. my brother got so mad at it he put a wrench in it and turned it on. It didn't do anything to it. No power surge nothing. It acted as if I put a plate of food. Lighted up turned and even beeped when done. The wrench wasn't even hot. Now I do recommend this myself. But we went and got antoher one.
There is something in there that magnifys the power inside the mircowave and it sounds like its out.

JVM1190 wont cook


You have a blown actuator. This is the device that creates the microwaves that cook the food. The cost of one of these will be as much as a new unit.
