Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
We have a GE Profile Spacemaker XL1800 microwave and there seems to be condensation in between the glass on the door. I can't wipe
it from the inside or the outside. It goes away overnight, but should I be concerned about a broken seal or leakage? Appears to happen
when steam is rising from the cooktop.
Your ventilation seals may be aging, but they have nothing to do with microwave energy leakage, (And microwave energy is not ionizing radiation anyway, so it does not cause cellular mutation or cancer)
You should check your grease filters (if you are venting to the outside) or your charcoal filter (if recirculating).
If you are venting outside, check your outside vent flap for proper operation, and check your outlet and ductwork for a bird's nest or mouse nest, etc.
If you have other questions, feel free to contact me directly, because FixYa doesn't always notify us when there are follow-ups.

This would require disassembly of the door panels, which is not recommended unless really required.
You can download the installation guide to help you troubleshoot and correct your venting issues. That should be priority one.
It may be a clogged filter, a bird's nest in the outlet, etc. etc. Failure to vent can cause control panel and keypad trouble if it continues.

It's probably a bad turntable motor or coupler.

you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo)
and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.
Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

1.Check power outlet for working.
2.If it is than you have broken fuse inside the m/w.
3. To change the fuse you have to disconnect the power to m/w, take the upper grill off, take the screw on top of control panel, lift the control panel up and removed. The 20 Am fuse located behind this panel.
