Question about GE JVM1842 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Noisy turntable I read in a post that there was an exploaded view of the turntable mechanism out there. I'd like to get my hands on that if possible. From what I read in the posts, and from common sense and a tad bit of troubleshooting, it definately sounds like the turntable motor is shot. Thanks in advance

Sharp sound bar buzzing

test this steps and fix it. God bless you

  1. MagnetronIf your microwave is emanating high pitched or growling noises during operation, the magnetron could be going bad. Normally a nearly silent part, the magnetron uses high voltage and induces the frequency required to cook food. Although normally not a safety hazard to operate, this is a sign that the magnetron is failing and will need to be replaced as soon as possible.
  2. Exhaust fan motorIf your microwave is making a very loud humming noise during operation, it could possibly be the exhaust fan motor. If defective the part will need to be replaced to silence the appliance once more.
  3. Stirrer motorAnother leading cause of a noisy microwave is an expired stirrer motor. With use this part becomes worn and makes a loud grinding noise, which is usually a leading indicator that the part needs to be replaced. The stirrer is a metal blade that is slowly turned by the motor. This action disperses the microwave energy in a random pattern, which heats the food evenly. If the stirrer motor is determined to be nearing expiration, it should be replaced to halt the grinding noise.
  4. Turntable motorA very common cause for a noisy microwave is a worn out turntable motor. This is a relatively easy repair and will put an end to the noise once replaced.

    The turntable doesn't rotate anymore

    The turntable system typically consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

    Here is a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

    If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

    To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

    You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts for many brands by entering your full model number here, but if your brand is not listed, try Encompass or call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

    If neither source has parts for your model, please post a NEW inquiry here on FixYa and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit, as well as mentioning that you have turntable-related trouble.

    Microwave turntable makes a noise

    Just dont listen to Mr Miller. He rambles way off subject and will say anything to feel like he is special.
    All it takes is very fist sentence where he suggests it could be magnetron bad. Geee, if that were the case your microwave wouldnt heat/cook so you wouldnt be here having a noise problem would you? Its kinda like the mechanic saying your noisy brakes could be caused by a empty gas tank.

    Cause? - could be motor that operates turntable going bad, food or something lodged anywhere in moving parts of turntable operation which includes unseen area, or moving part that is been somehow bent or moved (unlikely without impact to microwave or previous work done possibly leaving something loose).

    Solution? - I am ignorant of specific assembly of your microwave but on many you can access motor from bottom (unplug microwave first) and replace motor yourself if you are somewhat mechanical. The cheapest easiest 1st step would be clean very well around all parts and even clean any debris you find when taken apart, then recover and turn on to see. Not the likliest but its cheap and easy and you have to take apart bottom to replace motor anyway so not really much extra work.

    The turntable system consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

    If yours won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

    To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

    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.

    At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

    Noisy turntable

    I has this problem with a Sears unit. The repairman simply removed the glass tray, cleaned all the wheels and the 3 toothed driver wheel in the middle and it became quiet. He explained that if any buildup keeps the plate from properly seating on the gear, it gets very noisy.
