Question about GE JVM1440 Microwave Oven
While microwaving last night, a strange noise started which was the fan dying i think. now it cooks but no fan which creates a lot of "smoke" in microwave. what should i do?
If the internal cooling fan is not working (I don't mean the hood / vent / exhaust fan) then you should not use the microwave until it is fixed.
The cooling fan is essential to prevent the magnetron from overheating and being damaged.

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.
