Question about GE JES1456 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

GE JES1456WFC001 microwave oven turns on by itself

I have a GE JES1456WFC001 1100 watt counter top microwave oven. It was purchased at Wal-Mart approximately 4 years ago. It has worked fine until now. The problem is that oven will now turn itself on all by itself. When this happens, it gets hot very quickly. I can turn the oven off by pressing the cancel button, but the oven will turn itself back on in short order. The oven is now unplugged. I suspect the problem is a sticking touch pad button called "vegetable". The phrase "fresh vegetable" appears in the display window when the oven turns itself on. Can this problem be repaired? Is there a safety recall from General Electric? Thank you for your help.

You are correct. The keypad is failing.

If you might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

If you would like to have us do this for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs, assuming we can get the part for this Canadian model.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

My GE stainless steel 1100 watt microwave starts beeping out of the blue and the display panel shuts off and when I open the door it resets itself and then starts to beep when I close the door again.


Try removing the power cord for about a minute, push all the touch pad 'buttons' and then plug it back in. If this doesn't work it sounds like you may have a bad door interlock switch or a bad PCM .. Good luck !

Flame Sensor not available


We could look it up if we knew your full model number, but some of their budget models (like some made for Wal-Mart) are made with only turntable parts available.
Within the warranty period, the oven is to be returned to the dealer.
But a fire would not normally be covered under warranty unless the oven came on by itself when idle.
Otherwise, the thermostat / TCO has temperature markings on it, and a generic equivalent or very close type can be matched at a local appliance parts store.

I have a JVM1850 that was installed 4 years ago. The unit was working fine, then a day ago I received an error display requesting a charcoal filet replacement. No filter is needed since it is vented...


I have a JVM1850 White microwave-over the oven-installed 3 years ago. Last evening the unit would not turn off. The inside light and fan continued to run, however, the microwave was not working.

All the controls and functions seem to operate, but when completed, the unit remained working, as stated above, with the door opened or closed.

My turntable quit turning. Can I fix it myself?


Yes you can if it is just the "rubber band" drive...could be gunk too. Will come out thru back after taking cover off. If not the band could be the drive itself and just buy another as this can get expensive.

The F3 code keeps coming on with a beeping sound on my G.E. sensor microwave oven model number JES1456WFC001 1100 watts.


F3 means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

If it's under warranty, you should be able to get it fixed free.

The "C" in the model number means it's made for the Canadian market, and contacting GE Canada seems to be impossible for us here in the States.

So you'll need to contact GE via the info in your owner's manual.

If it's out of warranty, it's best to replace it, GE does not make parts available for JES-series microwaves.

One assumes they're meant to be thrown away when they fail out warranty.

Please don't kill the messenger... :)

GE JVM1850CH06 microwave no heat with loud humming sound


With the details you described, the high voltage diode might be shorted( usually HVR 1X). It is connected from the Capacitor and the chassis, or else the capacitor is the one at fault,but not common .
