I have a GE built-in microwave and the power relay is bad. Trying to find an 18V relay Omron G5J-1-TP-M-DC18 or compatible. I can't seem to any available relays. Thanks

G5J-1-TP-M-DC18 should be the same as G5J-1-TP-M-ER18, which is found in Panasonic commercial microwave ovens.

Even if there are slight physical differences, most microwave boards have extra holes so different relays can be used.

In more extreme cases, a comparable relay can be used if you drill a hole or two to fit it.

Then I always hot glue them in place after soldering just to hold them better.

The Panasonic part number is AEG5J1EM18B and you can get either in one of these two places: http://www.pasc.panasonic.com/epartr or http://www.wehaveparts.com

My over the stove microwave starts continues for a few econds the f-7 appears and it stops


F7 means power to magnetron is interrupted.

I don't recommend that someone without experience and an understanding of the safety procedures undertake troubleshooting this.
You can find manuals and helpful exploded view diagrams for your model here and my favorite parts supplier is here. There is a technical sheet hidden behind the controls that has helpful technical and troubleshooting information. It will say something like this:

F7 Power to magnetron interrupted

1. Unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.
2. After 40 seconds, check to see whether this solves the problem.
3. Unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.
4. Check cooling fan operation
5. Check the magnetron.
6. Check P65 connection on the relay control board.
7. Check the P56/P66 connection between relay board and relay control board.
8. Check wiring to the 1200W inverter and control system. See "Checking Inverters."
9. Check operation of all interlock switches.
10. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
11. Plug in microwave oven or reconnect power.
12. Check voltage at 4903-1 on relay board. If it is 120, unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.
13. Replace inverter.
14. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
15. Plug in microwave oven or reconnect power.
16. If problem persists, unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.
17. Replace relay control board.
18. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
19. Plug in microwave oven or reconnect power.
20. If problem persists, unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.
21. Check for reversed plug connection on controls or loose wiring.
22. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
23. Plug in microwave oven or reconnect power.

Only microwave not working


Chances are you have a bad secondary / cook relay on the control circuit board. The relay can be replaced. See details here.

GE Microwave Model: JVM1540DN1BB Keypad appears to work... but Microwave doesn't work


The problem is more than likely in the microprocessor control board, sometimes a bad relay, or poor solder points.

I have a that microwave gh7208xrs that shows a error code F7 HVSMPS feedback


The controller is not getting the high voltage switched-mode power supply feedback signal.

Sometimes this is due to a defect on the HVSMPS (inverter) or a bad connection from the HVSMPS to the controller.

Due to the voltages involved, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person attempt to troubleshoot an inverter.

In the event that you or someone you know wants to look into it, see these safety warnings first.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

It tells you this:

F7 Power to magnetron interrupted
1. Unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.
2. After 40 seconds, check to see whether this solves the problem.
3. Unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.
4. Check cooling fan operation
5. Check the magnetron.
6. Check P65 connection on the relay control board.
7. Check the P56/P66 connection between relay board and relay control
board.
8. Check wiring to the 1200W inverter and control system. See "Checking
Inverters."
9. Check operation of all interlock switches.
10. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
11. Plug in microwave oven or reconnect power.
12. Check voltage at 4903-1 on relay board. If it is 120, unplug microwave
oven or disconnect power.
13. Replace inverter.
14. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
15. Plug in microwave oven or reconnect power.
16. If problem persists, unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.
17. Replace relay control board.
18. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
19. Plug in microwave oven or reconnect power.
20. If problem persists, unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.
21. Check for reversed plug connection on controls or loose wiring.
22. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
23. Plug in microwave oven or reconnect power.

I'd suspect 6 through 8 first.

I have a GE 1650 black microwave and is not heating anything. I heated a potato and after it was finished, the microwave went off. Thought maybe a fuse, but not is goes on though nothing is being heated....


It is possible that your magetron is not working.First of all disconnect the power, open the top,if you had checked the fuse to be good then check the high voltage power capacitor and teh wores to the magnetron. If all these seems fine then a voltge check must be made when the set works in microwave mode. Put in a cup of wter and switch on. If the relay does not click along with the fan coming on , then the relay circuit must be checked. If you are not familiar please take help as it is dangerous to probe without any klnowledge. I am sure there cannot be anything serious than a failure of the one of these. hope my advice helps you out. Good day

Microwave will not heat


Q - The microwave makes a loud "hum or buzz" noise but will not heat up the food?
A - 9 times out of 10 this is usually this is a bad magnetron, the other time is sometimes a bad high voltage diode. See components section.
Q - My microwave is running and sounds like it is working but will not heat up anything.
A - Many thing can do this but, common things are....loose high voltage wire.....poor solder joint on board.....magnetron.....power relay.....
 Q - The microwave display counts down and the inside light is on,  but nothing is heating and the fan is not running.
A - This most commonly is a bad door switch, other possible problems are a faulty relay or solder joint on the power module, but a bad door switch is most common.
Q - The fan in my microwave oven is not running will this hurt my microwave?
A - YES, the fan cools the magnetron and electronics, take the microwave in for service, most fans are not too expensive to replace.
Q - My microwave blows the fuse inside itself as soon as I push the start button.
A - Usually a shorted high voltage capacitor...see components section.
