GE microwave model JVM1540DP1BB is overheating.
« on: May 07, 2012, 12:10:59 PM »
My mother-in-law has a microwave that is overheating. It has actually melted and burned the coupler below the glass tray. She has only had it for about a year and four months. Any ideas?

She just informed me that the microwave is not working at all now. The display is still working ans well as the timer but the oven is not heating and the turntable is no longer turning.

The only way to tell is check if power is going into control board and then is it going to the high side from the board. GE has a sheet in the back of the front touch pad.

The cavity fuse is probably blown. Look for lint and grease buildup over the vent behind the microwave. If it is clogged ot the stirring fan is out then the microwave will overheat.
