In GE / Samsungs that have 21VAC turntable motors and stirrer motors, the 21VAC is supplied from a tap off the internal cooling fan motor that cools the magnetron.

It sounds like you have a bad turntable motor.

The turntable system otherwise consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or possibly a bad plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

We have a 10 year old GE microwave model JE 1860 and it turns on bit is loud and doesn't 't heat up wondering if it is worth repair or should we just replace it??


Carol, where I live the parts for what could be the possible problem and the labor cost for the repair would probably equal about 2/3 to 3/4 of the cost of a new microwave. Most dealers that I deal with in my area tell me that the average life span of a microwave is 5-7 years. Considering the age and what it might cost it might be better to invest in a new microwave. Hope this helps.

I have a JE 1590 GE microwave oven and the lights /turn table/time all works but it does not heat at all. We just used it yesterday and it worked great!


It is probably a part in the high voltage section. Mainly the High voltage diode, capacitor or magnetron. The first two are fairly cheap to replace, but the magnetron can be expensive.

My JE 1860 microwave starts working when I open the door.


It sounds like the door switch is bad. It may be that the switch is shorted inside. I would think it may really run with the door open, and microwave you.

We have a JVM 1443bk02 ge microwave. Today the turntable stopped working. You can depress the key pad on/off button but that makes no difference for the turntable. How do you test to make sure it is the...


The problem with the turntable could be the following:
  1. Gummed up lubrication or bad bearings. Check to see if there is any food on the turntable spindle.
  2. If that is ok, check to see if the belt is loose or broken.
  3. If that is ok, check the motor. A meter will confirm whether there is power going to the motor, when you depress the keypad on button. Use the AC Volts setting, if you have about 21 VAC and the motor does not work, then the motor is bad.

We have a GE microwave model # JE 18600 SB 001 installed with a trim kit that stopped working. Can it be replaced with GE model # JEB 1860 SMSS?


You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here. You can download for both models and compare the two.

Or you can ask GE Customer Support. Contact info is here.

But your oven may be pretty simple to fix yourself or with help from a friend.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit and symptoms) for free DIY help and information.

There is a fuse and cavity thermal fuses as well as one on the magnatron that is supposed to reset itself.. The fuse is behind the control panel and the cavity fuses will require removal of the cabinet. Did you check for power at the plug?

Microwave Turn Table


This could be a failing turntable motor, but more likely your turntable support has gotten bent. That's an easier and cheaper problem to solve. Excessive heat can sometimes make the legs of the support bend so that the center is raised up far enough that it won't always make good contact with the motor. You can test this by running the microwave empty for a few seconds. It may hesitate to turn or stutter. Next try it with a bowl with several cups of water in it. The extra weight may push it down so it makes good contact and runs without a hitch. The way I fix these is to use a stove burner or a torch to heat up the legs and bend them up a bit. Then I quickly set up or clamp the support so it's held in the proper position for a few minutes until it cools. One way to hold the heated support in position is to place an object under the end of each leg and put something slightly heavy on top of it in the middle. If you need a new motor or just want to see helpful exploded views of your model, see the GE or Sears parts Web site: http://www.geappliances.com/shop/prts/ http://www3.sears.com/
