That's usually grease buildup behind the stirrer cover.

The cover and the metal behind it should be cleaned with a mild, non-ammonia cleaner.

See you owner's manual for information. If for some reason you don't have yours, you can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

Any damaged parts will have to be replaced.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

My GE Profile JVM3670SK02 microwave stopped heating. Can it be fixed?

Anything can be fixed, it all depends on how much it will cost to repair. Sometimes it just pays to buy another microwave oven they have come down in price quite a bit

Good luck

GE Spacemaker XL1800 sparking from behind wave stirrer cover

Microwaves use a magnetron to generate microwave energy and direct it a rotating blade wheel to spread them around the inside of the oven. If there is any metal in the area to be heated, or any of the blades are bent, even a bit, the microwave energy can be reflected back up to the magnetron area. In this area there is now too much power and it sparks away, so it does not heat the item in the oven.
Because it is sparking it is now a safety hazard the sparks may melt and set fire to plastic parts in it. This is serious it could burn your house down. Bin this microwave and cut the cable off it to make sure no one else ever uses it.

My Microwave is making a loudbuzzer noise when it's on

HI Dianne,
The loud noise you describe can be from two components, I would advice to have the unit checked. The repair could be cheater then replacement, when it comes to microwaves, aftermarket parts are cheaper. I would suspect the magnetron or diode would be the problem in this description you gave above. Some of the GE models had a 10 year warranty on the magnetron, so check your user manual before having the unit serviced, it maybe under warranty for the repair anyways. You can always call GE for a warranty status on your unit as well. Good Luck

How to check control panel fuse

It depends of course on the brand and model number, but here are some basic guidelines.

On a counter top microwave, the fuse is usually located between the door switches or on the noise filter board near where the AC cord enters the chassis.

On an over the counter model, the fuse is usually located behind the grille or control panel, or sometimes on a noise filter board near where the AC cord enters the chassis.

Our GE PROFILE JVM3670SK02 microwave stopped working. When you turn it on it only works for approx 30 sec and shuts off and the clock works but doesn't hold real time. Do you know what I need to do?

I have the same model and my problem is that after I cook something and clsoe the door, the microwave stays on, carosel not turning fan is blowing and light is on. Repairman told me that I am not closing the door correctly and that is the problem. He tshowed me how the door is not solid and you can close the bototm part of the door (latching it) but not the top and that is why it is staying on. I say it is a manufacturer's design defect. He charged me the $99.95 service charge. What a rip off.

Ge profile microwave under the counter stopped heating up food

In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man. Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

Can't remove Microwave -- GE profile jvm1090

One of two things has happened here. Either some sticky substance has your microwave stuck to the counter. If that is the case just find a long object which will slide part way under it and pry it loose.

OR, the cabinet above has settled and is resting on the top of the microwave. If that is the case, empty out that cabinet and the microwave may slide out.

if the problem is something else, get back and tell me more.

Many thanks to e3enigma above! I removed the synch motor under the turntable; all other microwave functions work fine and the grinding noise is gone, hooray! A trip to the appliance parts store tomorrow for a replacement synchronous motor and all should be well. Thanks again!
