    Do you mean the vent / exhaust fan in the grille across the top or the cooling fan inside behind the control panel?

My GE microwave convection oven JVM1790SK 01. It has started to make a load grinding noise, and is sparking above the cavity area, otherwise it operated properly. When I remove the fan assembly part...


The fan is for air circulation regulation, e.g. preventing steam (and smoke) from building up inside, and also stops air pressure from building up inside so you won't get a blast of steam coming out or worse. On the convection side it heats the food faster and more evenly. You will need to replace the fan assembly to keep the microwave safe. the noise and sparks are probably due to spent bearings and / or a dislodged fan scraping against another surface or something getting in the way of the fan

Vent fan has stopped working. the keypad says vent fan off. when pressing help, it says press this pad. nothing happens.


A low tech solution worked for me.

I too was getting the "Vent Fan Off" message, and despite the fact that everything else worked fine with the microwave, I turned the breaker off and back on from my electrical panel. The fan works fine now.

hello,

this is a maize problem that wiring (wire) this means that your oven fan has been disconnected from it position

what you need to fix up your fan back is that you unscrew your oven trace the maize that supply A/C to the microwave

this maize is connected to different object but what by you are real after is your fan and the heater including the turntable .

trace the wire down to the fan to locate the loss wire from it position and do the fixing your self because it is same maize thaat link up both together i.e fan and turning table

please note before you can do this make sure that any form of power supply is put off.

Good luck and thank for using fixya.

The megatron tube is not working. The microwave should turn off when the door is opened for safety. If it is still under warranty, return it. If not, you may consider replacing the unit. I know its expensive, but its just taking up cabinet space tonight.

Sometimes the microwave shuts off (and will not restart) during a cycle--as if it internally overheats. After a period of time, it will again operate properly


It is overheating, but what I need to know does the fan work when microwave is running and at some point the fan cuts off even with the microwave still running? if so it may be that the fan is kicking out and then microwave runs and gets hot.

Fan and light constantly on


which fan? the exhaust fan or the control board cooling fan? the cooling fan is controlled by a thermostat just behind the control panel. it turns the fan to protect the board from overheating.
