To install the magnetron, orient the item so that the fan is blowning across the fins. One of the connections on the tube should be labeled FA... That is the connection for the anode wire and one of the filament wires... of course, connect the other filament wire to the other lug. If you only have 2 wires available for the tube.. then the FA wire should be the one with the heaviest extrusion.

My GE model JVM1631WB002 is giving off a burning smell. What can I do?


A burning smell is usually a sign of a bad magnetron tube, the microwave source. As they age they take more power, and this causes excess heating that can cause the smell. Eventually the tube burns out and you get no heating. If you've been noticing longer than normal cooking times, it's due to the weak tube.

You can replace a magnetron, but it's a costly part (around $100-$125) and the repair should be done by a professional because of safety concerns. (Several websites describe how to replace a magnetron if you'd like to try it yourself, but you need to be very careful. MICROWAVES USE HAZARDOUS VOLTAGES WHICH CAN KILL YOU.) Between the part and labor costs, when the magnetron goes bad it's often more economical to spend a little more and replace the oven.

There are some other parts that can get hot and sometimes smell, but the magnetron is most common. If you want to keep the oven, I'd suggest letting a professional check it over and give you an estimated for the repair. Then you can decide what you want to do.

My ge microwave spacemaker 1800 won't heat my food pls help


HI. in most cases, this will lead to a failed Heating device(magnetron tube).It would be wise to check the Magnetron cutoff fuse to be sure of its integrity. if the fuse is blown, simply replace it. if the fuse continues to show continuity, replace the magnetron.

(((The fuse is located inside the unit along side the magnetron, near the blower housing.)))

JVM1450BA001 GE Microwave runs but does not heat. What is the parts # of the magnetron tube for that model?


Ok, the part number is below but, i would advise to check the Magnetron thermal cut-off(Magnetron thermal fuse). This fuse could have blown.

GE JVM1650 Microwave Suddenly Stops


Tami,
It isn't really difficult to replace... It's the 4000 Volts that go to it and the stored energy (voltage) in the high voltage capacitor that concerns me as far as telling you that it is a do it yourself repair. Also, and this a huge concern, is that after the magnetron tube is replaced, the microwave should be leak checked. A microwave leak detector that is certified is around $400. Now that I said that, I have rarely ever had one that leaked, but it is the law and that's the main reason that it needs to be done. I highly recommend calling GE Factory Service 1-800-432-2737 (1-800-GE Cares) to install the magnetron tube.

Magnetron tube


Short of buying the service manual, you can find helpful exploded view diagrams by entering your full model number here.

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.

Replacing the magnetron will require the removal of a lot of screws. Keep track of where they all go.

We have critical safety information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.
