Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
Worked fine yesterday am, clock etc. still operational...the cleaning lady gave it a good scour yesterday pm and now nothing heats up. It seems to me my folks had this happen after using some particular cleaning solution. Does that add up?
I have the same problem and have figured out the following:
Most likely it is the magnetron - common problem for GE's. Replacement part list price is around $180 but you can find on ebay for about $80. Replacement is "doable" but tricky because the oven needs to be removed to replace the part. The GE replacement kit part # for magnetron and stirrer is WB27X10489. Expect a service tec to charge at least $200-$225 to make the repair so complete replacement of microwave might make more sennse...unfortunately.
