Question about GE JVM1440 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Microwave quit working after a few seconds......

I have a Daewoo combination microwave/convection oven. The other night I was reheating a hamburger patty and it worked fine. I decided to reheat another one and noticed that the the microwave stopped after only 16 seconds, I reset the timer and it started for about a second or two then diferrent numbers came up on the display, dissappeared and then shut off. I tried to set timer again but the start button did not work. I still get a display on the screen, I'm able to set time etc., but the start button does not work. I have located and removed the fuse, but I can't tell if it is blown or not. It is a solid color white, and does have what appears to be a black mark or smudge on it. I'm in San Diego county, are there any service techs in this area? Thanks for all of your assistance. Oh and by the way I purchased this unit on ebay, brand new, it came in its original box and I've only used it a few times. I don't think it is still covered by the warranty however. Thanks again!

Microwave is on when you shut the door


I tried all the things on your website. Holding the clear button , unplugging,...

So I went back to the last operation that I was doing when the problem started.
I was using "reheat" so I put a glass of water in the micro turned on reheat 1 serving.
It started and then I hit clear after a few minutes and the problem went away.

Microwave/convection oven problem


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

If you someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

If you think the problem is on the control panel, which we repair these nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Reheating doesn't work


Hi There!
The magnetron may be faulty. When measured there should be no reading between one of the terminals and the outer case of the magnetron. Also check High Voltage Fuse( Normally a red wire with a white plastic capsule in the centre) and the High Voltage Diode(Situated between earth and High Voltage Cap). Be sure to unplug from Mains before working on the unit.Good Luck, JUS004
