    The microwave works but the turntable motor appears to be broken. I've tried using the "turntable on" and "turntable off" feature but neither has any effect. Is there an easy way to repair this?

    Can I look from inside the microwave, remove the round cover plate to look for blockage, or misdirection?

You have a bad turntable motor or a bad control board.. start with the motor 9 time out of 10 this is your problem.. you can pick up this part at your local parts house or order online.. look for universal part. this will be alot cheaper then the oem.. just take the screws out of bottom panel under microwave. panel will drop down. you will see little round motor about 2in' make sure unit is unplugged.

Microwave worked this morning and now not.....made no noise just stopped heating.


HELLO.

The solution is to diagnose the magnetron as explained below.

* 1 Fill a mug with room temperature water from your kitchen sink.

* 2 Place the mug of water on the glass cooking plate inside the microwave.

* 3 Set the microwave on "High" for one minute and press "Start." You should hear the magnetron hum while it is working.

* 4 Remove the mug carefully from the oven by its handle. The magnetron is working properly if the water is hot or warm. The next step repair or a replacement of magnetron if the water is still cold.

Thanks.

Light's on, plate rotates, no heat


When the microwave works properly but just doesn't heat, then the magnetron is bad and will need to be replaced. You can get the part and the diagram at partselect . com or repairclinic . com

It sounds like a bad filter capacitor on the circuit board, which we repair often, and possibly a bad door switch.

We would need to know you full model number from the tag in or on the unit.

FixYa does not currently notify us experts when someone replies to help requests, so you would need to post a new help request with the same info you did, but include your full model number.

Model jvm131h002 Stopped working. no power or


yes, at the back of the microwave there are 4 or 6 screws, take them out and then pull the cover follow the cable( the one you connect to the outlet) going to the inside of the microwave inside you will see the fuse change it with the same size, it is a slow burn fuse

GE Microwave won't heat or cook - one year old


More than likely the magnetron has failed. This could be for a number of reason. Do you use your microwave to heat wheat packs or warm plates? If so, you may have dried the magnetron out (they use the moisture in whatever you're cooking to heat it, and plates/wheat bags have no moisture).

I'd say a trip to your local Microwave repairer could be in order. It could also be the High Voltage Fuse which has failed. Either way a repairer will be able to tell you!

GE Spacemaker XL1800(JVM1850CF001) - Loud Humming noise


You either have a bad magnetron tube (5 or 10 year parts warranty item through GE Factory Service 1-800-432-2737 or www.geappliances.com) or a shorted high voltage rectifier. I think the light being out is a secondary problem.

GE SpaceMaker Microwave suddenly stops while heating


I had same problem last week. My GE JVM1650 Spacemaker stopped after a few seconds of heating. Owned 16 months, manufactured Jan 2005. It was the magnetron, which was replaced yesterday. The magnetron has a 10-year warranty, but I had to pay $161.00 for labor by a GE technician. The call-out fee was waived at my request. I don't know what that amount would have been, but I can't believe the $161.00 for what was about 1/2 hour labor once diagnosed. Good Luck!
