It's probably a bad turntable motor or coupler.

You may have a failure of the H.V. rectifier. I would recommend that a trained technician replace this part due to the high voltage potential.

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

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

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

If yours is a GE, you can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

If yours is a GE, there should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

SOURCE: I have a GE Profile Spacemaker Microwave Touch Pad does not work

Sadly, GE does not make individual parts available for these controllers, so they cannot be repaired.

You have to replace the control panel sub-assembly (part number WB07X10733 in your case) and the best price I've found on that is $370.32 here (compared to $483.25 direct from GE).

In my opinion, this does not do much to inspire brand loyalty...

Or you may be able to find a whole oven on eBay for about that or less.

Sorry to bear bad news. Good luck.

SOURCE: I have a GE Spacemaker

If everything works, but the microwave oven does not heat, this is commonly caused by a failed magnetron. The magnetron is essentially, the heart of the oven. This is what produces the RF energy that heats your food.
Here's what you need to determine whether or not its worth fixing:
1. You will need to uninstall the oven from over the range in order to replace the part (you will need to do this anyway, if you decide to buy a replacement oven).
2. You will need to ensure the oven is UNPLUGGED before servicing anything inside the cabinet. You will need to remove the exterior case in order to access the magnetron. There are several websites that you can use that illustrate how the oven is assembled:
searspartsdirect.com pcappliancerepair.com appliancepartspros.com
If you've never repaired an appliance on your own before, a microwave oven is usually not a recommended appliance to start with. Some models can be rather involved in taking apart.
3, The magnetron replacement part number for the model you have listed is WB27X10305. The average cost is about $80. NOTE: I found the part listed for the best price at appliancepartspros.com at a cost of $76.
You need to decide whether or not $80 and the amount of labor involved is worth the effort as opposed to replacing the entire oven at a higher cost and less labor (other than the installation). Review the parts illustrations at the recommended websites to see if this is something that you may be able easily take apart and reassemble.
If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful
CAUTION: DO NOT operate a microwave oven with the exterior cover off. The voltage inside the High Voltage network where the magnetron is installed can exceed 3,000 volts.

Testimonial: "Hi jsrock516 - thanks for your expert information. I don't think this is something we can fix on our own and as you said probably cheaper to replace. "

GE Profile Spacemaker XL1800 microwave turntable


The turntable system 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 is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

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

On some, you have to cut the motor cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.

Just wanted to know the size of the GE profile microwave model JVM1660BB005. Is it 1.5 cu ft? Looking at a new model JVM1540LNCS to replace it and want to use the same mounting hardware.


In GE microwaves, the first 2 digits of the model number are the cubic footage. 1660 is 1.6 cubic foot, 1540 is 1.5 cubic foot. Take care trying to use the existing hardware, the exact placement of hardware and upper installation screws may vary from year to year or model to model..

GE spacemaker Power goes off and clock needs resetting


Try going to the breaker box and shutting off the power to the microwave for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, turn back on and set the clock. This fixed my clock and turntable both. Apparently turning off the power resets the software in the clock.
