    You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

    If yours
    is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it
    sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic
    coupler.

    To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

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

    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 & testing.

    The turntable is probably cracked because it's not been turning.

    I always recommend that folks put food off-center on the turntable to assure more even heating.

    Also,when you put your food off-center, you're not putting it in the same spot every time.

    That will help prevent repeated heating of the the same spot on the glass, which can lead to weakness and cracking.

    The loud noise is another issue... what does it sound like and where does it sound like it's coming from?

    It may be a loud hood fan blower or a problem in the high voltage section.

you have a bad turntable motor or a bad control board.. start with the motor 9 time out of 10 this is your problem.. you can pick up this part at your local parts house or order online.. look for universal part. this will be alot cheaper then the oem.. just take the screws out of bottom panel under microwave. panel will drop down. you will see little round motor about 2in' make sure unit is unplugged.

It is very likely that the motor that spins the plate is wearing out. You can find a replacement on ebay and many other sites.

That I can't answer! But I would replace your microwave/convection oven, it is completely unsafe and a major fire hazard, and I would get in touch with GE and lodge a formal complaint about their product, if there is a flaw in the design it needs to be brought to the table to warn others that have same item so they are not affected in the same way.

The spinning plate in my Microwave broke.


Hi there! Universal Glass plates are available from a good local appliance spares shop. Please note that size of the plate, the coupler (The centre connection point to the plate) and the ring size (on which the plate rests) are all important to the correct function of the plate. Take these along for correct matching if you can or they may even keep your particular Model and Brand. Best Wishes and Good Luck, JUS004

Everything works except heat


this is something you should probably call a repair technician for, due to the danger of the componentry.

Usually in ther case of this problem, even a technician will advise you to replace the unit, in the minds of cost effectiveness and safety...

GE Profile Microwave will not heat


Unfortunately, there is no way to tell which part the microwave needs without opening it up for examination. There are a few parts that, if defective, would prevent the oven from heating.

  • a high voltage transformer which passes energy to the magnetron
  • a magnetron which converts high-voltage electric energy to microwave radiation
  • a magnetron control circuit (usually with a microcontroller)
This is NOT a repair that you would want to attempt yourself. The labor for the repair would cost a minimum of $50 and shouldn't exceed $100. You'll also have to pay for the necessary part if it's still available from the manufacture or their parts distributor.

Microwave not working, please suggest


Your magnetron tube has failed. According to the warranty on the Profile Series microwave ovens, the magnetron is covered for 5 years from the date of purchase, but labor is not included. I would call GE Customer Service and when they ask for the model number (which begins with JVM) and the serial number, be sure to give the date of purchase as the date you closed on your house. If they insist upon charging you for a service call and labor, I would call my builder's Customer Service Department and demand (very nicely) that they intervene with GE to waive the service and labor charges. That worked for me (Lennar Homes).
