Question about GE Hotpoint RVM1535 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

How do I change the filter on the Hotpoint RVM1535WMCo01 microwave oven. When I took the top off I can not see a filter to replace. Does that mean that I have been running the Micro for the last year with out a filter? Does this model use a filter - I hope so. If not I am just moving air aropund and the fan use is useless. Robin

Microwave ovens produce dangerous emissions and require servicing by qualified technicians.

I suggest purchase a new one rather than repair because most microwave models cost as much to repair as simply buying a new one.

This model seems to have a fuse in a cylindrical white nylon fuse holder, probably located near the right rear.

It will also have a thermostat on the magnetron which may be out.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here or here.

SOURCE: chefmate microwave will not heat up anything

A microwave not heating up is caused by one or more of the following -

1) Failed controller board (unlikely if you are getting a clock readout and you can get the various functions to work, just no heat)
2) Failed door switch
3) Failed thermal fuse, when used
4) Blown power fuse that is dedicated to the microwave circuit
5) Bad diode
6) Bad capacitor
7) Bad magnetron
8) Bad transformer

Door switches insure the microwave circuit will not engage when the door is open. Slamming the door of the microwave is hard on the switch.

The thermal due is wired into the microwave harness, and is a melting allow type, based on heat buildup within the oven. Always replace with a fuse of the same thermal rating.

The power fuse is a special type and should only be replaced with that same type and rating. It is easily tested.

The diode is a relatively inexpensive part, and is not easily tested. If a grumble is heard coming from electrical area of the unit, then the diode could be shorted.

A shorted capacitor will blow the fuse immediately. And open capacitor will cause a "no heat" condition.

A bad magnetron will also cause a low level hum or grumble from the transformer. But is may also cause no other identifiable symptom of failure.

A bad transformer will exhibit a grumble or hum, and may or may not blow the fuse. But be careful here, the secondary of the transformer produces very high voltages, up to 2.5Kv. Few people own a meter capable of measuring such voltages.

Service and repair of microwave ovens is dangerous work. If you don't know what your doing, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SERVICE A UNIT WITHOUT INSTRUCTION.

How can I get a copy of the manufacturer's installation instructions for a Hotpoint JX-81J over the range microwave oven?


JX-81J is the microwave recirculating charcoal filter for several models of GE and Hotpoint microwaves. The installation instructions will be available from the manufacturer with the model number of the microwave itself.

One microwave that uses this filter is the RVM1535MMSA . See http://products.geappliances.com/ApplProducts/Dispatcher?REQUEST=HPSPECPAGE&Sku=RVM1535MMSA#tab1_ for all of the details on this microwave. The owner's manual, http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=39-40541-1.pdf , shows the installation of the filter on page 34. The guide for installing the microwave above the range is http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=39-40425.pdf .

If you have a different microwave, add a comment with that model number. I hope this helps.

How do I change the fuse?


On most GE/Hotpoint models, the control panel assembly will either tip down, or pivot sideways for access to the components behind it. Screws holding the top air deflector might have to be removed in order to gain access to the control panel mounting screws. I recently junked-out a similar model. The main fuse was near where the power cord enters the cabinet on top. Avoid contact with any of the high voltage components.

How to clean the filters?


The only filter that you can clean are the ones on the bottom of the unit...but if they have never been cleaned it is better that you replace them. As for the carcoal filter, that cannot be cleaned it will have to be replaced. To gain access to this filter you need to remove the top panel across the front of unit. Two screws hold this panel on and once they are out you may have to slide it to the side slightly to remove.

Open the Micro door, and remove the air/Vent cover on the top if there is one, Usualy 2 screws on top or the middle of the cover.

Changing filter


The grease filter is changed from the bottom of the unit.

The charcoal filter is changed as follows:

To Remove Charcoal Filter
To remove the charcoal filter, disconnect power
at the main fuse or circuit breaker panel or
pull the plug.
Remove the top grille by removing the screws
that hold it in place and sliding the grille to the
left (opening the door makes grille removal
easier). Slide the filter towards the front of the
oven and remove it.
To Install Charcoal Filter
To install a new filter, remove plastic and other
outer wrapping from the new filter.
Insert the filter into the top opening of the oven as
shown. It will rest at an angle on 2 side support tabs
and in front of the right rear tab. Replace the grille
and screws.
