    -the turntable does not run, the option is turned on

    When the Start pad is pressed:

    - Does the inside light come on?
    - Is the turntable running?
    - Do you hear the cooling fan running?
    - Is it louder or quieter than before?

Sounds like a bad door switch or a misaligned door switch mount or door.

Sometimes you can gently push up and down on the handle a tiny bit while it's not running right and et it to try to work.

But since it's new, I would let GE fix it free.

GE Spacemaker XL - fan stopped working, light will come on and timer will count down.


either the magnatron fried , or the fuse fried... either way the microwve has to be taken down and opened up.
If you have the serial number , GE will send you a replacement magnatron (but will not service the unit for you).
contact GE and they will take care of you... the magnatrons are warranted for like 10 years....

My GE Profile Countertop Convection/Microwave Oven PEB1590DMBB Has stopped working.


It sounds like you may have a shorted cook relay on the control circuit board which can be repaired simply and inexpensively.

A YouTube video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes, is here.

Timer counts down very fast


The keypad control board will need to be replaced, bare in mind the cost for the part will exceed the price of a new microwave oven in some cases.

Have ge model je1860 turns on but when you hit cook nothing happens is it the turn table motor. i don't want to do trial and error on parts.naturally the fuse is good


I'll presume you can program it ( set the length of time you want to cook)
Does the timer count down?
Does the turntable ( if you have one) turn?
If everything else seems to work properly and it just doesn't cook more then likely the magnetron is bad

Have a GE microwave for three months bought it brand new and wife was making potatoes in it opened door to check on them and then closed door to continue cooking and it continues to count down but light...


The door switches are slightly out of alignment. If you run the microwave and shift the door up or down, the micro might begin working..
The control panel must be removed and the door switches adjusted. I would not suggest you doing this yourself, as it may affect the microwave leakage through the door gap.

My GE 1660 profile microwave oven will not cook or rotate, but the timer reduces in time. I have tried to gently press up or down on the door in case it is a door latch issue with not change. Also it keeps...


Check the door safety interlock switches. If they are burned (because you frequently open the door while the oven is running) they tell the magnatron that the door is open (forget what you know about the door) and not to run that magnatron (which produces the microwaves that actually heat the contents of your oven).

Check the switches with a ohm meter. Remove the cover to find the switches near the door latches.

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.
