Question about GE ZMC1095SB 800 Watts Convection / Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Microwave stopped working

Hello, I just tried re-heating some leftovers in my microwave. We moved in our house this past September, and hadn't had a problem before this. I pressed start, and the microwave completely shut off. The display is gone, it won't beep, nothing. I tried unplugging the plug and replugging it in. I also tried flipping the circuit, and nothing happened. The microwave is a GE SpacemakerXL, 1000 watts. Thanks very much for your help, and please let me know if you need more information; I have the owner's manual but it just said to do the things I mentioned above.

Sounds like it blew the fuse, and when the fuse blows immediately upon hitting the START button, I'd say you have a shorted high voltage capacitor. But it may also be an open thermal cutout on or near the magnetron or just a fuse. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your actual model number (like JVM1860B01, not XL1800 or Spacemaker) here:

Our microwave worked but would not heat. My husband installed the GE part magnetron for our JVM3670 purchased in 2003 with our home. He had 2 parts leftover when he reassembled it. He could not determine...

I would first be sure the internal cooling fan is working. If not, when the magnetron overheats, its thermostat will kill all power until it cools back down.

Also, if the RF gasket somehow fell off or was left off the new magnetron, that can make it "noisy," meaning it will emit RF noise which will disrupt the microprocessor and it will act weird and shut down when you try to cook.

For free additional help and details, feel free to e-mail me directly from my site. Remind me of your full model number and detailed symptoms.

I have a sharp carousel microwave, and the turntable has stopped, I just need an idea of where to start. I would assume it would be the motor, If I had a diagram i could work it out but I cant find...

have you tried opening the housing of the microwave?

sometimes the diagram is pasted on the inner wall of the housing.

if you open it up, be sure NOT to turn it on without the housing in place. microwave produces high energy which could be harmful to us.
