GE Spacemaker xl1800 microwave oven randomly turns off


While you checked the wall receptacle it could be a loose connection in your breaker panel where the breaker snaps into the buss bar. Try the unit in an outlet on a totally different breaker and see if you have the same problem. I also say this a lot, if you have a bad fuse holder in the unit it can make the fuse go bad by betting hot and melting so you could have either a bad or weak fuse holder or bad wire connections to the fuse holder. These companies are using some pretty cheap fuse holders these days!!!

Microwave won't START!!!!!!!!!!!!


It's usually a broken tab on the upper switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position.

This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

While replacing the switch holder is the preferred solution, using hot glue to secure the switch to the holder is much easier and quicker. Just be sure not to let the door be slammed from now on.

We have the R1480 service manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you. You will need the free Adobe Reader to view or print it.

The best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics.

On these models, the problem is usually a broken tab on the upper door switch mount.

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or occasionally a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. Other times, it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

You can probably find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number here at the Sears parts site. The best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.

MICROWAVE TURNTABLE


Does it turn for just a moment or does it keep turning?

If it's just for a moment, that's normal.

If it stays on, either your top or bottom door switch is sticking or it's door switch mount is loose or broken.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

The GE Spacemaker model JVM1440WH04 will not turn off fan or light when door is closed. Does not heat, but it appears to be in the door sensor or something related to the closing of the door. Any advice?

It's probably a cracked coupler or a weak, slipping motor.
