Model JVM1870SK04 Spacemaker XL1870

We purchased this GE Profile microwave a little over a year ago (new). Twice we have replaced the lights, they explode and the vent fan only works on high and medium setting the low quit working a few months ago. Anyone have similar problems?

We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

Just wanted to know the size of the GE profile microwave model JVM1660BB005. Is it 1.5 cu ft? Looking at a new model JVM1540LNCS to replace it and want to use the same mounting hardware.


In GE microwaves, the first 2 digits of the model number are the cubic footage. 1660 is 1.6 cubic foot, 1540 is 1.5 cubic foot. Take care trying to use the existing hardware, the exact placement of hardware and upper installation screws may vary from year to year or model to model..

Microwave interior light has gone out twice in one year


If the warranty covers changing the light bulb, you can find other GE-authorized servicers by calling GE Appliance Service at 1-800-848-7620 or visiting here.

If the warranty does not cover the bulb, it's really not too hard for you or someone you know to do it.

There is a handy step-by-step guide with pictures here.

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

These use halogen lamps, so you must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

Ge profile spacemaker over range microwave not heating


It was probably the Magnatron tube that went out , they are normally replaced only under warr. due to the cost to repair , the part is roughly 200.00 and labor ranges from 100-200. I guess it all depends on what it is worth to you , you can pick a decent brand new one up for about 200. Hope that helped you out. Phil
