Question about GE JVM1630 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Team, I have a GE JVM1630 BK01 Microwave Oven, yesterday after we finished heating up some food we shut the microwave door and it remained running even though it the programed timer ran to zero. We tried pressing stop and opened and closed the door several times, but it still remained running. We finally unplugged it, waited, and when we plugged it back in it began running again even though we did not select an express time or press start. Additionally, the clock timer is not showing any text or numbers it is just blank. Is there a reset button or process that i can conduct on my own? Thoughts?

There is no reset button for this type of problem to be properly solve.
this type of problem can be view from two angle here below
1) From the wall power supply connection
2) from the oven wires connection to the panel or unit control

What this could indicate from your explanation is that there has been a bring of wire from the power control connected to the element (heater), what you are to do to solve this problem carefully, is to carefully unscrew the oven then trace the wire from the main power supply down to the control switch (panel or unit) after you most have unplug it from power supply to see if there is any of meant wires around if you are un able to trace any loose/bad wire then couple it back to it position and trace the problem to the main power supply from the wall mean that a partial contact from the wall unscrew it with a screw driver (technician tools )fix it up and then couple it back with this the problem of continuous will be solve.

thank you and thanks for using fixya.

The microwave is making a humming noise as it runs and the food does not get hot.

your high voltage capacitor or diode in the high voltage doubler circuit is open and can't help double the high voltage to operate the magnetron tube to make food heat

My microwave does not heat up food, it looks ok buy does not heat up at all

Please check your door safety interlock switches. Find them inside on the side opposite the hinge. If they measure open both with the door open and the door closed, they must be replaced. You are looking for one or more micro switches.

These switches are how the device knows whether the door is open or not - forget what YOU know about the door - the device must know the door is closed in order to turn on the heat.

Microwave oven stays on continuously and won't heat food.

Spacemakers have had problems with there magnatron, part is around 170.00. Depending on the year it is covered under a warranty however the labor is not. I have replaced 3 spacesavers for people already due to this issue. Unit runs but will not heat.
