GE microwaves are not very good, they always have problems, I would call up GE and see what they will do for you or call Walmart. Serious wiring issue or an issue with the magnetron caused this.

good luck on getting it replaced and hopefully you will get some money off of this as it may still be under warranty from GE, so give them a call.

If you need anything else, please let me know

GE MICROWAVE JVM1860CD NO POWER


It is time to replace the microwave oven, it is 11 years old and prices in microwaves has dropped considerably. To repair the old! magnetron would need to be replaced, "most expensive part" and other unknown problems would need to be addressed.

My GE Microwave JES1344SK is showing the code -F3- on the digital screen and it beep three times every 30 second, the microwave won't start and any of the fuctions is working I need some help on t


An F3 code means that the touch pad has a short. The touch pad needs to be replaced. If you purchased the microwave new, get your receipt and the unit serial number and contact GE for the repair (1-800-GE-CARES). See http://repair.geappliances.com/ to find a repair center near you. There is a one-year parts and labor warranty on this part. You will need to get the unit to the GE Repair center at your own expense. (I'm assuming that the unit wasn't shorted by a lightning strike or other disaster.)

I hope this helps.

Fuse is behind the control panel. Has cavity sensors and a magnatron thermal disc also. Start with the fuse and then pull it down if not the problem. Eric

Microwave is on but won't heat.


When the microwave sounds okay, but there's no heat, one of the internal door switches, the high voltage circuitry, or the circuit board may have a problem. To resolve this problem, you need the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

You can now purchase a new microwave for about fifty dollars at walmart so that may be cheaper than having a repair tech work on it.

There is a GE/Kenmore recall: http://injurylaw.reganfirm.com/2007/12/articles/defective-products/cpsc-notice-ge-ge-profile-kenmore-microwave-ovens-recalled/. I don't know if your relative's models are involved. I suggest that you file an incident report with the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Go to geappliances.com and click on the "Service and Support" link on the left-hand side of the screen. On the next page, click on the "Contact Us" link. You have the option of using their knowledge base to see if any of the posted questions will help you. Or, you can send an email to them to address the issue and you can call them directly. If you decide to call, I would recommend the "GE Answer Center", or the "GE Warranty Management" links. Since you just purchased the item recently, they still may honor a replacement or free repair if there's something wrong with the appliance. Since you can't find your receipt, your serial number may come in handy to prove this point. The first two letters "FR" indicate that this applaince was manufactured in February of 2008 which makes it about 3 months old. Most manufacture warranties are for one year. With this information and a store number of the Wal-Mart where you purchased the item from, you shouldn't have any problems resolving this issue. I hope this information is helpful to you.

Since it's less than a year from your date of purchase, this should be fully under warranty.

The problem is most likely a bad door switch or door switch alignment, but let GE take care of it for you.

GE Customer Service is at http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/contact/

They can connect you with your nearest GE-authorized service center to fix it for you.

You should probably return it to the store where you purchased it as it appears to have a short and could pose a potential fire or shock hazard!
