Question about GE JVM1650 1000 Watts Microwave Oven

1 Answer

GE over the range microwave making grinding noise

JVM1650 microwave is making a grinding noise from the top of the oven. the moise is not comming from the exhaust fan or the turntable. The noise is comming from the microwave generator. There is a service disc on the inside of the microwave which I removed. Inside there is a spinning device that is making the grinding noise. Can this device be lubricated or cleaned? other than the noise the oven still works fine. Thank you Cliff grekin

This sounds like the stirrer. If it sticks or stops, the microwaves can damage or destroy it. You may have a bad stirrer or magnetron. There is an important bulletin that covers these problems. To see if yours is covered, see: http://207.234.249.73/mwd/ge_mw_mag_kit_bulletin.pdf If you need more help, please follow-up.

Microwace noise coming from top and flashing

dont use the microwave until you retrieve what dropped inside when you removed the port. The grinding is most likely a foreign object that is hitting the moving parts of the microwave and causing sparking. It can catch fire

GE JVM1650 Microwave Making Loud Noise

hello Frank. Sorry to tell you that the magnetron is going bad and making that terrible noise. Since the inside of a microwave, even unplugged has up to 2000 residual and deadly volts of electricity I recommend either calling a pro or replacing the unit.

Microwave making loud grinding sound

Sounds like a bad magnetron. One test is to set it to run for 30 seconds on the lowest power level. As the microwave power turns off and on, the growling should cycle too.
