Food caught on fire, now the microwave acts as if there is not power, which there is. Other posts mention a flame sensor, I do not see that on the bill of materials associated with this model.

Look for the wiring diagram behind the top grille or behind the control panel. Post it.

Default Wiring Diagram / Bill of Materials

Gene,

Thank you very much for the reply. I have the wiring diagram, technical specifications and bill of parts from the GE website and from AppliancePartsPros.com. What I don't know how to find is a functional description for which part my daughter's potato fire damaged.

I see several thermostats and microswitches listed, and have insufficient knowledge to determine which one needs to be replaced. My alternative is to purchase a new microwave and just replace it, but that seems wasteful given that a $10 part might do the trick.

Do you know which part needs to be replaced and if a moderately skilled mechanical guy could replace it?

Thanks,

Jesse

The information you posted is not really what I asked for. I need the Wiring diagram which is not published on-line. It must be supplied with the microwave.

Default Fixed it myself

For those of you keeping score at home, when your daughter (or other unsuspecting family member) starts a fire in this model microwave, the correct replacement part is Thermostat WB27X10810.

It can be replaced by removing the sheet metal exterior and 1 screw from the plastic molding. Had I done this before, it would have taken about an hour to dismount, disassemble, replace the part (very simple), reassemble and remount. Remounting was by far the hardest part. I am going to feel that in my lower back tomorrow morning.

Gene, thanks for trying to help. I am an engineer by training and thought this would be the correct temperature element given its physical location. Guessing was worth a $10 part given that I have no wiring diagram to use, although I would agree that it would have been helpful in understanding the control system.

Jesse

I'm glad you were able to fix it.

Gene can you help my find the right sensor, please?
I had exactly the same scenario as above (food caught on fire and I heard the cutoff click followed by the power disconnect) except I got a different GE Microwave model:
GE Spacemaker XL1800
Model # JVM1850BH06
Serial # HL900721B

Looks like the part needed for your microwave is the same as Jesse had replaced. It is the cavity thermostat and it's shown as #44 on the diagram.

My wife burnt some popcorn and then boiled water to get rid of the smell. Then it quit working after about 10 minutes of boiling? Where do I go from here?
