Question about Hotpoint RVM1435 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

We have a Hotpoint RVM1435WJ01 above the range microwave. We lost our electricity one day due to an outside electric wire splitting - when the electric company fixed the wire, the power came back to everything in the house except the Hotpoint microwave oven. It is totally dead. What could have happened? How can we fix it?

A mains surge may have taken out the fuse. To find the fuse, remove it from the mains, remove the outer cover and follow where the power cable enters the case. There will be a PCBoard with a fuse on it.
Always replace the fuse with one of exactly the same type and value!

How can I get a copy of the manufacturer's installation instructions for a Hotpoint JX-81J over the range microwave oven?


JX-81J is the microwave recirculating charcoal filter for several models of GE and Hotpoint microwaves. The installation instructions will be available from the manufacturer with the model number of the microwave itself.

One microwave that uses this filter is the RVM1535MMSA . See http://products.geappliances.com/ApplProducts/Dispatcher?REQUEST=HPSPECPAGE&Sku=RVM1535MMSA#tab1_ for all of the details on this microwave. The owner's manual, http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=39-40541-1.pdf , shows the installation of the filter on page 34. The guide for installing the microwave above the range is http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=39-40425.pdf .

If you have a different microwave, add a comment with that model number. I hope this helps.

How to replace the bulb of a microwave oven


Replacing a Built-in Microwave Oven
  1. Step 1 Locate the cabinet above the built-in microwavemag-glass_10x10.gif oven. Find two screwed-in bolts. Unscrew the bolts while someone holds the microwave steady.
  2. Step 2 Unplug the electrical cord from the cabinet above and snake the wire down the hole towards the microwave oven. Continue having someone hold the microwave steady.
  3. Step 3 Roll microwave to left or right to set it free from the mounting bracket in the back. The microwave oven should now be unlocked from its position and can be removed completely from the area.
  4. Step 4 Install the mounting bracket on the new microwave that was included in the package.
  5. Step 5 Snake the electrical cord of the new microwave through the hole in the above cabinet. Plug in the electrical cord.
  6. Step 6 Lift the microwave and rest it to line up with the existing mounting plate on the wall. Roll it until the microwave is locked in place.
  7. Step 7 Use a screwdriver or electric drill to screw in bolts above cabinet into the microwave mounting bracket. This will keep the microwave securely and tightly in place. Your new microwave is ready to use.

GE microwave/convection oven 1790 there is a #8 displayed in the right upper corner of display


HELLO.

When the F8 code appears,it means that electric control requires replacement because the relay drive circuit has been lost.

Attempt to clear the code by pressing Cancel and cutting power to the range for 30 seconds.

If the code cannot be cleared, replace the electric control.

thanks.

A tree limd fell on a power line running across my yard to his house. now we only have partial electricity.any ideas why?


Hello elle..... Definitely call the power company right away. You have probably lost one leg of your power so that instead of having two 110 volt legs going into your electrical panel you have only one leg. That would eliminate half of your power.

This is a potentially dangerous situation so please call the power company right away. ALSO do not use your electric dryer or electric stove/oven under any circumstances at these require 220 volts and using them could damage your appliances. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

I have a GE Spacemaker and it is about 9 yrs. old. Sometines it heats; other times it doesn't. I change settings and sometimes that works. Is this something that can be repaired or is this a sign I need...


When the microwave is not heating, that means the magnetron is not working. This is what provides the heat to the microwave. I do believe the magnetron has a 10 year warranty.

If you wish to replace it, here is how:

  1. Unplug Microwave at least few hours before
  2. Remove Microwave from above oven range by somebody holding Microwave from ground unscrew the screws from cabinet
  3. Remove top cover of Microwave
  4. Make sure to keep screws correctly in a place you remember what goes where
  5. Make sure capacitor is discharged, GE manual inside Microwave says capacitor will discharge within 30 seconds once it is off. As a precaution check the voltage in capacitor to make sure there is no electricity
  6. Remove other panels around magnetron part
  7. You need to remove lot of connecting wires, should be careful to note down what goes where
  8. If possible take digital photos to refer back when you put everything back together
  9. You may need to remove transformer to easily remove and replace Magnetron. If you can't remove Magnetron easily then remove bottom panel of the Microwave and remove transformer
  10. Now it should be easy to remove magnetron
  11. Replace new magnetron and screw it. We had to put one outside part from old magnetron to new one because new one was missing that. Check to make sure both old and new one are exactly the same
  12. Make sure put all wires properly back
  13. Now put transformer back and screw it
  14. Put capacitor panel in place and screw it
  15. This might be a good time to test the Microwave to make sure it works fine now
  16. Now cover the top panels and start to screw everything
  17. Once everything assembled put the Microwave back above range put screws from top

Magic Chef Microwave Shutting Down Problem in RV


your micrwave may run fine at 110 but it draws more power than the generator is putting out when the magnetron kicks on which is the part that creates the microwave causing the food to heat up. In other words the amperage is too low for the microwave. Amperage is what matters not voltage.

Will i need a separate 110 circuit????? cannot use the 220v leg??


I would contact a few electricians for their opinions. Appliances like microwaves and ranges, etc. should be on separate circuits / breakers due to the high currents they draw.
