Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Can't adjust power level

I have a GE Model # JVM1750SM1SS. When I press the "Power Level" button, the message says "Power level may not be changed at this time."

What does this mean? I have looked in my warranty notebook and didn't get a manual with the microwave when we purchased our home last summer.

Can you help? Thanks!

How do I set the power at 50%?


After first setting the cook time---then hit the power level button and hit the number 5 (for 50%) and then start. Power level can also be changed while running by hitting power level button and selecting 1 through 10. For example level 3 is 30% for defrosting.

Unable to adjust power level, the power level button on the control panel does not respond.


Try pressing and adjusting the power level before setting the cook time, or maybe before pressing start. Worked on my Panasonic

How to set microwave 50%


You have to put the cook time in first and then you press the power level button (just below the number 7 on the keypad) and put the power level in. The choices are 1 through 10. Fifty percent is probably power level 5. Once you have put in the power level, just push the Start button and it will start cooking.

How do you set the power level? The model number is: JVM1730DM1WW The serial number is: MM901698B


Assuming your touch pad is working properly, press Time Cook (for cooking) or Time Defrost (for defrosting) and then type in the length of time that you want the microwave to operate. Then press Power Level and type in a number from 1-10. Finally press Start. Depending on the GE microwave, the Power Level button may be above 2 or to the left of 0. (I've seen both keypad designs depending on when and where the microwave was manufactured.) If you press Power Level before setting the cooking time, the unit will reset when you press Time Cook or Time Defrost.

GE has the manuals for some of their microwaves on their site. See http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/ and enter the model number in the search engine.

I hope this helps.

Power level


Hi cindeet,

I don't have this particular model, but have experience with other GE stoves & ovens. Looking at the control panel for an Advantium 120 at the link below,

http://www.geappliances.com/products/introductions/advantium/downloads/advantium_brochure.pdf

I'd start by pressing the "Power/Temp" button, and then turn the knob to select which power level.

There is also a Help menu shown (upper left corner of the photo I'm looking at - page 4 of the PDF document referenced above.

Let me know how this works for you - thanks in-advance.

Changing the power level


I had the same problem. All you need to do is put in your cook time first, then adjust the power level. So time cook, whatever # of minutes, power level, then # power level. Hope this helps.
