20 Most Recent GE JE1540 Microwave Oven Questions & Answers


Is there a replacement microwave for a GE JE1540,

Called GE Customer Service (thanks MicrowaveSvc), as they were very helpful. The replacement microwave (GE) is: JEB1860DMWW with new trim kit: JX2030DMWW. This are P/N for white, I am sure they have something for other than white. Total job took me about 5 hours (self install, moderate ability), where the final 1 to 1.5 hours was working on the final trim kit install. Couple of notes. This oven is about 6 to 8 inches deeper. The kit wanted about 1.5 inches more horizontal space than my original install, but I made it work. I had to shimmy the vertical space by 1 inch. Good Luck!!!

Why does my ge microwave model je1540gv002 starts and stops by itself?

If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire. So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking. Chances are you have a shorting membrane keypad. Please let me know your full model number and more details on what it's doing and I can give you the information you need.

Everything works except heat

Sounds like you've had a failure in the microwave portion of the unit.

Microwave not heating problems when the timer/controller board appears to function properly, are related to the following components -

1) Diode
2) Capacitor
3) Transformer
4) Magnetron
