Default Microwave will not turn on
Model Number: JVM1642BB002   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have a Kenmore microwave spacesaver. Model# JVM1642BB002. The inside and surface lights work, and the fan works. When I push start, nothing happens. I do not have much electronic experience nor the tools to check any circuits. Could this be an easy fix, or should I replace the unit.

The model number posted is a GE MW. Is that the number off of the MW itself?

Default Yes it is a GE

Sorry about that. It is a GE. My brother just stopped by, and gave the microwave a "technical knock" and it now powers on. Now a new problem has surfaced... It will not heat anything up.

That is probably either the magnitron or the transformer. Of course it could be a loose connection or broken wire.

If it is the magnitron or the transformer I'd say no. But if it's a loose or broken wire then yes. If in doubt call a service company in your area, ask them how much a diagnosis or in shop fee is have it looked at. If it's just a wire then it's worth it. if not you can have them remove it or leave it with them, which ever is the cheapest(in home vs. in shop)

Default GE may cover the parts

Thanks Nat. I called GE and they informed me that if it was the magnitron or transformer, it is still under warrenty. I would just have to pay for labor. Thanks for your help.
