Inside light comes on, control panel works, timer counts down, but: table doesn't turn, fan doesn't blow, no microwaves created.


Johnny Appleseed.. hello,

Thnx for all that good nutrition (X-ell-ent companion to cheese)!

Before we start...
An annoying little know trivia about micro-waves...
If used for EMPTY or for softening single pats of butter
they will soon self destruct (eat themselves... burn-out... fail).

When they do... their "micro-wave-generator" (magnetron) will
consume much more energy and cause the primary (most likely solitary fuse to operate)... "blown fuse".

Would that you had included a model number... (but alas).

Looking up your own model number on eBay or better GETTING your REAL PART NUMBER off of your original parts sheet will allow you to shop for the VERY BEST PRICE.

Sears has an excellent reference library... but if you want the same part you can get everywhere else for the HIGHEST price
SEARs ($$$$) is your place... (3 estimates... always!).


Don't forget to get that SPARE FUSE...!

Happy hunting.

GE JVM1850 turns on but turn table doesn't rotate & light doesn't come on even though timer counts down. Doesn't heat & has low hum noise. Is it worth fixing or should I buy new? It is 8 yrs old.

Mbbs 01 thermador micro oven: timer counts down, lights go on, but no heat, no fan and turntable does not turn. is it a fuse?


Key clue is table does not move---All microwaves with a table have a lever switch that is engaged when door closes--only can get at from inside the unit----it prevents the unit from operation if door not closed.

What happens from closing door a lot is the switch with a lever arm can come loose or even if snapped into a plastic holder break out of the holder.

IF this it is not too expensive a repair.

The motor will not work. The interior light comes on, but the turntable does not go around. The cook time counts down, but no cooking occurs.


the turn table motor could have failed, but the counting down will be the monitor switch or a micro switch located behind control panel

The timer counts down but the microwave doesn't work?


it sounds like the light is on, the table spins, the lcd panel works you just have no heat
it could be many things !
BAD MICRO-SWITCH on the doors

BAD DIODE

BAD CAPACITOR I must warn you if you open it you must discharge the capacitor, because the capacitor stores a large amount of voltage , you coming in contact with it can really hurt you, so you might want to find to discharge it or leave it to a pro

BAD TUBE.......if the tube is bad you might as well purchase another one since the parts an labor will run you about the same.

GOOD LUCK LEAVE SOME FEEDBACK!
THANKS!

You need to trace the power feeding the high voltage transfomer. Because the table doesn't turn, it implies that a door switch or safety interlock is the problem.
