Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

A few weeks ago our ge JVM1660 quit heating and ge sent me a replacement magnetron. I've heard that the capacitor will discharge after the unit has been unplugged for 24 hours... Mine has been unplugged...


Hi newer microwave ovens have a built in resistor to bleed the power from the capacitor once it is unplugged. Saying this it is always a good safety practice to discharge it.

The factory approved method is to purchase a 2 Watt, 20,000 ohm resistor and touch it across the terminals on the microwave capacitor to discharge, doing this with a tool like pliers so you are not touching the metal tips of the resistor.

Most technicians will use pliers that have insulated handles and touch the tips to the capacitor. I am not condoning that, just letting you know.

I have a GE space saver Model JVM3670 - it is not heating up


Generally if everything else looks like it is working fine, then the magnetron has quit and needs to be replaced. The magnetron is the part that heats the food. Unfortunately, it is common for this part to fail on GE microwaves and it isn't worth replacing as the cost of the part is almost the same as buying a new microwave.
Let me know how this works out for you.

Microwave not heating.


1 thing here you can check yourself. You need to remove the cover of the microwave. Make sure it is unplugged first. To remove the cover there should be a series of phillips head screws on the backside of the microwave. Once the screws are removed then you need to lift the back of the case towards the front there is a lip at the front that holds the front down that is why you need to lift the case from the back. Once you have accessed the inside follow the powercord from the plug into the microwave along this cord you will see a fuse. Very IMPORTANT do not touch both sides of the fuse holder at the same time. There is a charge stored in the microwave that will curl you hair remove this fuse with a fuse puller (purchased at an auto parts house) Take the fuse to an appliance parts house for replacement. Should be in the area of 10.00 or so. Replace the fuse put the casing back together and try the microwave. If it doesn't work then the magneto or magnatron whichever the machine has is blown and in that case it is cheaper to buy a new microwave
Good luck hope this helped you some

Purchased ge counter top microwave feb.2 from best buy it has quit heating, why?


Your oven should come with a 1yr. warranty. Try calling the G.E.repair toll-free number below. They should help resolve your service issue. Have your model, serial no., and proof of purchase handy when you call.
