Question about GE JVM1640 Microwave Oven

2 Answers

Microwave rattle I have a GE Spacemaker Microwave (JVM1640WB007) over the range (new with the house 2002) - it has started a rattle sound when it is running. I have taken the front vent off as well as the inside filter but am unable to locate the specific problem. Can I continue to use the machine? Is it a problem I can repair? I'd rather not pay a service charge to say it needs to be replaced. I await your reply. Thank you. Tom Thatcher

On some models, the right side of the case is pretty close to the high-voltage transformer. What's normally done is a rubber block is glued to the side of the transformer to keep it from getting so close. In other cases it may be something loose in the fan, stirrer, etc. It really has to be checked to know for sure.
