Change lightbulb

most times you have to take the outer case off (the stainless steel part) and then you can see all the wires circuitry etc. thats how you get to the light bulb. make sure you unplug the microwave first and do not touch where it says electric shock hazard it will shock you even if not plugged in

How do I adjust the clock brightness level on a GE microwave over Model JVM1740

I don't think adjusting the clock brightness is a supported feature for the JVM1740 microwaves. You can turn off the display by pressing and holding the 0 key pad. You can also adjust the intensity of the surface light using the Surface Light button. Each press will cycle through the options: On, Night Light, Off. The manual is available from the product page: https://www.geappliances.com/appliance/GE-Spacemaker-Over-the-Range-Microwave-Oven-JVM1740SMSS . Scroll to the bottom of the page or use the Owner Support quick link. The current link to the manual is https://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=49-40536-1.pdf . I hope this helps. Cindy Wells

My high power GE Advantium microwave is sparking

Your problem is a common one. When you see arcing inside your microwave, it's because of food or liquid left in the cavity or on the wave-guide cover:

  • If the wave guide has any burn spots, replace it and clean the unit well.

  • If the cavity has any burn spots, spot-sand it smooth and touch it up with microwave interior paint.
Note… If there are any burn holes in the cavity, don't use the unit-seek help from a qualified appliance repair technician.

Is there a replacement microwave for a GE JE1540,

Called GE Customer Service (thanks MicrowaveSvc), as they were very helpful. The replacement microwave (GE) is: JEB1860DMWW with new trim kit: JX2030DMWW. This are P/N for white, I am sure they have something for other than white. Total job took me about 5 hours (self install, moderate ability), where the final 1 to 1.5 hours was working on the final trim kit install. Couple of notes. This oven is about 6 to 8 inches deeper. The kit wanted about 1.5 inches more horizontal space than my original install, but I made it work. I had to shimmy the vertical space by 1 inch. Good Luck!!!

Advantium 220V damper door motor clicking

My Advantium 240 damper motor was cycling as mentioned above in the morning after a power failure had occurred. Removing the top vent grille and control panel I could see the inlet damper was opening fully and stopping about halfway closed then retrying. Removing power and cycling by hand, i could move it freely until just before it would contact the micro switch at home position where there was a hard stop. I removed the light assembly on top of the cavity and was able to access the rod that spans across to the outlet damper near the halogen light. A combination of fiddling with the connecting rod inside the light housing and manually cycling the inlet damper reseated the rod and everything was working again. My guess is the power failure was the cause and hopefully the issue won't return.

My Advantium was arching at the turntable. Replaced the turntable roller assembely (that hold the metal or glass plate) and the arching went away.

GE Microwave turntable turns when off and doesn't turn when on.

It needs professional service. There is a switch, or a module board that is giving wrong info to the turntable motor.

One surface light bulb on GE Profile microwave keeps burning out

I have the same problem. The left one burns out within a couple of hours use, the other one lasts a couple of months and is then gone. This pattern has repeated over 8 years. I replace them every now and then and then just go without until I get the urge again to fix it. Maybe smaller lower wattage lamps are worth trying...

I have a GE Advantium 120 Model ZSC1001 Microwave. About half of the time, the display flashes erratically or blanks while in use or after.

The display could be failing but the fault could be in the control board.
