Question about GE XL1800 1100 Watts Microwave Oven

1 Answer

GE Microwave Does anybody know of a place that can repair circuit boards or where I can get a circuit board for my GE microwave oven? (JVM1870SF02) Also approximate cost if available. The problem I am having is sometimes the microwave will run okay but it usually will run for a couple of seconds and then the display will flicker and the oven goes completely dead as if somebody flipped the breaker. I have already checked the fuse and circuit breaker. It is on its own 20 amp circuit with brand new wiring when oven was put in. Thanks, Gary.

I repair GE circuit boards, but the problem is not your circuit board.

This is 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 you and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Ge profile microwave jvm1870sf02 buttons don't work do i need to change the control panel frame or Bkt c/panel


You will need to change the keypad along with the control board, because they are essentially of one piece. But the part will equal, if not more than a new microwave oven.

GE Spacemaker Microwave JVM 1542WF 002 : everything works except the turntable and it won't heat. Have tried the TT on/off nothing happens. Have tried the power setting...nothing happens.


Usually, power for the turntable motor and the magnetron tube (the microwave source) are controlled by a couple of things. One is a relay on the control circuit board, and the other is a switch that's operated by one of the door latches. It's possible the control board has gone bad or bad connections have developed. It's also possible the door switch has failed or is out of adjustment and the oven thinks the door isn't closed.

Diagnosing this kind of trouble may require working on the oven while it's operating. MICROWAVE OVENS USE HAZARDOUS VOLTAGES WHICH CAN KILL YOU. You might want to leave the repair to a professional because of safety concerns. Unless the circuit board requires replacement, it's probably worth having this repaired. Unlike some repairs, this one won't cost as much as a new oven.

I need a circuit board for a MH7130XEZ-1


The printed circuit board (PCB) was part number 4359413 then was superseded by part number 8172053.

It looks like it may be no longer available or at least not through usual sources, but sites like PartStore.com and MandDappliance.com show they can provide it for about $172 to $195.

But depending on the problem, we may be able to repair it with our $39.95 repair service. We repair hundreds on microwave control boards every year.

And we've repaired these.

Replacement bulbs still do not work


Most electronic control boards have undersized circuit wires that can't handle a catastrophic lamp failure. The circuit trace will open like a fuse. If you or someone knows how to use a soldering iron, this can be repaired.
1. Remove the top grille. (Two screws on top)
2. Remove screw above button panel. Push up on panel to remove.
3. Remove circuit board from panel. Look on reverse side for open circuit trace.
4. Repair circuit trace...lights work again....

If you need further assistance, let me know

GE Microwave Spacemaker oven, Model JVM240


That would almost certainly be a problem on the control circuit board. If the bulbs happen to short / blow out or if they are removed or installed while the microwave is still plugged in, there is often an arc which causes damage to the board. We repair regularly these boards for such problems for $32.50 nationwide.

GE JVM1651 Microwave


The control circuit board needs to be removed and repaired. We routinely repair these from customers nationwide for $32.50. It sure beats the cost of a new board!

High voltage surge


We regularly repair these GE / Samsung boards from customers nationwide with just such problems for $32.50. If it's too bad off, we can get this board (# WB27X10466 remanufactured) for $145. A new board runs about $180. We would need the full model number with suffix.
