Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven

Open Question

What is a good replacement for the GE microwave oven model JKP62G? This is a built in unit with the regular oven below it. Both were new with the house in 1989. The regular oven is fine but need to just replace the microwave. This unit has a black front so if we replace with stainless steel it will not match the lower oven, refrigerator, dishwasher and stovetop.

First, get the bulb part #F612E4W00AP or equal. Next, you should find a few screws around a plate in the unit through which the light shows through. Carefully remove them and the glass lens. When replacing the bulb, be sure it is in securely.

SOURCE: removing microwave surround

Ahh, that's one of those British brands I can't get any information about.

If you have the installation instructions, they would tell you how to install it, and it's as simple as reversing the procedure.

BUT maybe it's not too different from US models in the sense that many of its components can be accessed without pulling it from the wall, assuming it's the over the range type.

I would first refer you here:
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/safety.txt
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/disassembly.txt

In most cases, you unplug the oven, then remove the vent grille across the top, then you'll see a screw holding the top of the control panel frame in place.

Once that screw is out, you probably lift up and either swing forward or twist to loosen the control panel.

You should be able to access the fuse, etc. at this point.

There may also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

If it's built into a cabinet, then you would have to remove the metal frame covering the area in which the microwave rests.

Be safe.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

GE Microwave oven is making popping sounds.


This is because the coating inside the oven or the wave guide has been damaged and microwaves are hitting bare metal and causing sparks. Take the light bulb out of it and when it is dark, put a glass of water in it and turn it on. If you can see the sparks then you know what needs to be repaired. You can buy microwave oven paint. It is special paint though, you cannot just use any paint. If you cannot see sparks then the area that is damaged is inside the unit and it should be taken in for repairs. If you don't fix it, it will blow out the magnetron and you will be looking at a new oven.

My microwave oven just stopped cooking. The light comes on and the Motor is running, but much louder than normal.


The magnetron in your microwave has probably gone out. The magnetron is the part of the microwave oven that produces microwaves. If you unit is a built in model, it will likely cost more to fix than a new one. Same thing goes for a countertop unit.

Our GE built in microwave model # JKP62G suddenly started making a loud noise when we try to use it. It does this on any power level and on the defrost setting also. It does not seem to be heating...


It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

Microwave GE Model #JE1640WB - Makes noise when


Magnetron is done. This part heats the food. GE microwaves tend to have them stop working quite frequently. They basically make up the majority of the cost of the microwave, so instead of replacing the magnetron, you would be better off getting a new microwave.

No display on microwave touchpad for ge Model JKP62G


The GE JKP62G Microwave / Oven combination has an internal fuse behind the control panel for the microwave. The oven will operate but the microwave will be totally dead (no light, no clock). Turn off the breaker for the oven at the fuse box (30 Amp double breaker). In order to replace the fuse you will have to open the door to the microwave, remove the two screws (Torx) from the front control panel (located on the left edge of the control panel), wiggle the panel to the left (there are two metal tabs that stick into the metal frame of the microwave on the right of the panel) and then tilt the panel down from the top. There is a metal bracket that holds the control panel to the microwave at the bottom (don't remove it). Look towards the top of the microwave inside the area behind the control panel and you will see a 15 Amp screw in fuse. Replace the fuse and that should fix your problem.
