Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
I saw your posting of your GE Microwave reseting back to setting clock/date/year after turning on for few seconds. What happen? Did you get it fix? How and what parts were replace? Or did you have to buy new one? Thanks for your time.
Sadly, we hear of this over and over.
This is usually due to a defective or loose magnetron causing electrical interference and disruption in the control circuit board.
If your magnetron was recently replaced, it may have loose mounting nuts or bolts or maybe the wire mesh RF gasket was not installed or got pinched.
It may also need a new high-voltage diode and stirrer, and the cavity may be affected.
Details are in their bulletin here. Even if your model is not on the list, the same problem can occur, requiring a kit. The parts kit is similar to this one.
(Your model may use a different kit - this is shown for illustration purposes only).
If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.
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.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
