Question about GE XL1800 1100 Watts Microwave Oven

Open Question

GE XL 1800 Model JVM1851BH06

I have a display, but the light and turntable are not working. What is wrong with my microwave? The mini manual seems to be pointing to the curcuit board, but I'm not sure that this is right.

    I have a XL 1800 JVM1851WF001 - Light works and it heats but turntable quit working. I think the motor is bad, but can't find a manual/parts diagram to go after it. Any thoughts/suggestions?

    When I hit start, the inside lights up but there's no power and the turntable doesn't move. The panel seems to be working fine as it counts down and tells me my food is done. The vent works, lights work too.

I don't like to pass on your problem but it sounds very much like either the high voltage supply ot the magnetron has bit the dust.
Either one would make the repair marginal at best.

This is apparently not a very good unit, many microwaves jsut kind of fade away as their magnetron emissions decay.

This one seems to have a bad rep. look at this link:

Sorry, have owned a lemon or two myself.

My GE 1800 microwave turntable has stopped turning


There is a motor underneath the microwave that rotates the turntable. The motor may not be getting power or the motor may have failed.

It sounds like the main transformer has failed. It would be cheaper to replace the whole microwave than repair this one. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Hope this helps. Good luck.

I had the same problem. You need to replace the turntable motor. I used a local appliance repair shop and they charged $45 for the motor plus $65 labor(a house call). I just checked with searspartsdirect.com and they have the motor(part # WB26X10038) for $22.27. Oh well, at least it works.

No turntable, no heat. Light, vent fan and keypad all work...


That would be a problem with your primary interlock switch or its mount.

NOTE: 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.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

The interlocks are highlighted in the diagram below.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
