Question about GE JVM1440 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

No sound or buzzer

I know this is a trivial issue when compared with appliances starting on fire an such - but this one is really annoying. I have no sound. I do not believe my model has a "mute" or even a "volume" setting for the sound. I think it should always be on. Has anyone had similar problems? I am considering replacing the piezo-buzzer for about $1 before paying a $50 deductible to my home warranty company. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    I have unplugged it for a while and then plugged it back in and that didn't work.

    Also - I definitely do not have a "Beeper Volume" button.

    I'm pretty electronics savvy, so I pulled the board and sent a test signal to the buzzer and could hear my test signal. Does this mean I need a new smartboard or whatever would be sending the signals to the buzzer???

If your model doesn't have a "beeper volume" button, maybe you can reset it by unplugging it for about a minute or so then checking it. If you don't have your owner's manual, you can download it from here:

    I meant to post this picture since some models have them.

I have a High Pointe microwave model EM925RCW and the "buzzer" does not sound when the cook time is done. I've been unable to find any help in the manual or on the internet. Thank you.

You would have to pull the unit, remove the back cover and inspect the control board. Then identify where the buzzer should be located and see if it is even there. It would be labeled on the board something like BZ1. It will look like a button. I am not aware of any units that would have the feature of muting the buzzer.

Cullentry my microwave oven never show upu the disply I am looking for this part or someone fixed it I am living in Squamish Bc Canada Thank you

You might try calling someone who has experience in fixing appliances like these. Appliance repair can be something that is really hard to do if you aren't trained properly. That is why it is important to call a professional to do it for you.

My microwave intermittently blows the downstairs sockets

If it is tripping the breaker when you just close the door, I think it might be one of the door switches that the latch activates. There are usually 3 switches behind the latch holes in the microwave. One is a safety monitor switch that is suppose to blow the internal fuse if the microwave is started and the door is not closed properly. It should blow the micro fuse before the house breaker unless you have a weak house breaker. It will do the same thing if start is pressed and it senses a problem with the door. You say the problem is intermittent so I assume you do get it to work at times so I'm guessing most of the microwave is OK. I'm pretty sure you have a door switch problem--- either out of adjustment ---or 1 of them going bad.

Frigidaire microwave has annoying beep, can it be turned off? model no. FFMV162LQA

The only way to stop the beeping is to push the cancel button then immediately open the door. This is the only microwave Ive ever encountered that doesn't stop the beeping when you either open the door or push the cancel button. To make it even more irritating, the beeps are VERY loud and long. Here is a short you tube video posted by someone who recorded this loud and long beeping I am referring to.

Electrolux high speed oven quit beeping

The buzzer on the keypad control has opened, or one wire has come off due to poor soldering, or the voltage to the buzzer is missing.

GE microwave: model 1840 circuit breaker trips when strarting micro wave


Circuit Breakers do weaken over usage. It is not usually a time factor as much as a load factor. Each time a circuit breaker trips, it loses its ability to carry the same load as it did previously. In other words, a 15 amp breaker only carries the ability to carry 15 amps once. I recommend replacing the circuit breaker with one that has a matching rating. If you do feel up sizing is necessary, check the load rating of the appliances to make sure the additional size really is necessary. Increasing power to appliances that shouldn't need it increases the risks of potential electrical fires and masking real issues. Try changing it with higher amp breakers.

Please accept the solution if it's helpful. Do get back to us for any further query.

Thanks for contacting

Hotpoint microwave is loud.

your transformer windings are loose and the 60 cycle frequenct is setting up a mechanical vibration, you can try and look for anything loose inside the unit, but if the transformer windings get loose theres really no fix but to live with it
