It may normal. Some are louder than others.

If your delaer has your model set up for domo, maybe you can try the demo unit and see if there's a signficant difference.

If so, yours may have a problem in the fan or maybe something concerning the ventilation, filters, etc.

It sounds like from the description when it is running the noise comes from the magnetron, some microwaves are louder than others, but this could be an early sign the magnetron is going.

The microwave no longer heats food and it smells as if something is burning. Everything else on the microwave works. Is this a common problem and how can I fix it?


Its your Magnatron tube, thats what makes the microwaves and heats the food. The part will cost you more than a new micro. The new model that replaced yours is a JVM1540 and you can get them for 179.00

GE JVM1540 keypad only works for some buttons


Membrane keypads are not very durable, and do fail after a relatively short time.

The only method is to replace them as a spare part.
