Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
When the microwave is turned on, it shuts down and display goes blank, asks to reset clock and date before it'll work again...doing it more and more frequently now
The magnatron (heating element) is located in the cavity behind the control. If it's leaking microwaves onto the electronics, this will occur. This means the Mag should be replaced and a radiation test run on unit.

Try this first. The mag's little cooling fan probably broke loose and fell off the fan motor's shaft. The fan keeps the mag cooler. The machine shuts down when the mag gets too hot because the fan blade is just lying in there, Needs to be glued back on the shaft after the shaft is roughed up a little. NO other parts needed. I used contact cement to hold the fan to the shaft. Its located right behind the control panel. It's not difficult to repair.
