I thought I had answered this, but maybe the reply didn't post... Vent cap? Could you be more specific about what you tried and what the noise is like - where it seems to be coming from? It looks like on some of these models, the high-voltage section emits some interference which some people are blocking with a foil or metal shield. If they do that, they should definitely insulate it to prevent shorts. Another cause of vibration on these models is a fault in the stirrer located above the cover on the ceiling inside the cooking cavity. Feel free to post back so we can help further.

GE Microwave model JVM1440BD operates but does not heat


On most occasions, it is magnetron. If you on your oven and hear an humming noise, that usually confirms magnetron problem.

Let me know, once you test this.

I have a Corningware MW-A-10 Microwave Browner which I have never used - could I use it in a conventional / thermofan oven?

No. The bottom of this utensil is coated in tin oxide. It is not recommended for use in any appliance other than a microwave. Tin oxide (SnO) is flammable and particles may contaminate your food. It is suggested that you use the MW-A-10 only in the microwave, or look for a different CorningWare piece that is not in the MW series.

When started,light& turntable operate normally,but no heating by microwave. Transformer normally sounds smooth,but now makes rattle or vibrating noise,like something is loose.

Check the door safety intertlock micro switch for proper behavior. If it is faulty, the oven will think the door is open and will not turn on the magnatron.

GE Spacemaker Microwave Oven Model JVM1440BD: turntable doesn't work. When we press start, turntable make semi-loud noise while oven is cooking, but it does not turn. We can stop noise by pressing...

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

You can see and hear 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 usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also 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.

Vibrating noise when cooking

In order to try to set your mind at ease I will have to explain the Basics on how a Microwave Oven Functions.
When a Microwave Oven is set to COOK ...START. It cooks at 100%. There is no lowering of the heat as with a Range ( Cook Top) Control. So in order to do the other things such as DEFROST, WARM, or anything other than 100% COOK. A COOK ON- COOK OFF system was utilized. To DEFROST, the Microve COOKS at 100% for 30% of the TIME, then IDLES for 70% of the TIME. COOK ON 30% of the TIME, COOK OFF 70% of the TIME = DEFROST This is why you can hear the CYCLE. More power is required during the ON CYCLE, thus the lower vibration. The Vibration occurs when the High Voltage Transformer is turned ON ( COOK ON).
The VIBRATION seems to have got louder with age. This is somewhat normal as there is a vibration from the High Voltage Transformer present every time the Microwave is used. screws and other metal parts seem to get loose with this vibration. There is no solution, unless you can tighten EVERY screw, nut, and bolt in the unit.
