GE JES1344SK01 microwave: turn off reminder beeps

GE JES1344SK01 microwave: Is there any way to either turn off reminder beeps (beeps at one minute intervals after food is cooked, but door has not yet been opened) or change timing? It can be pretty annoying (which I know is the intent, but I don't need it).

I checked my GE micro information and nothing is said about disabling that annoying beep. Guess GE feels it is for your own good, like a noisome nanny.

SOURCE: Ge JVM1190 appears to be working but does not cook.

I spoke with a qualified microwave technician who advised me to buy a new microwave as the problem I was having indicated that the magnetron tube had blown. What a waste of time to ask for help from you.

SOURCE: GE XL1800 Micro fan won't shut off after light burned out

The problem appears, at least in part, to the door latch circuitry which cannot be serviced by the owner. If the unit is still in warranty, call GE customer care. If not, replacing the unit is your best bet. I just bought a new GE 1100 watt oven with great features for less than $100 If the door dosen't latch correctly, you could be exposed to dangerous microwave energy.

SOURCE: GE JES1344SK01 countertop microwave, no power

A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

It may be the fuse, which is usually located behind the grille or on the floor of the oven behind the control panel or between the door switches.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout (TCO) / thermal fuse on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the magnetron thermostat to open.

Then when it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

When checking TCOs or thermostats, if it has a hood fan thermostat, that should read open, as opposed to the others, which should read closed.

If the cavity thermostat needs to be checked or replaced you'll need to pull the oven from the wall, in which case you can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

If it goes dead or blows the breaker (or GFI) when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

If it's intermittent or random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or a loose fuse holder, or even an intermittent fuse.

You should do a continuity test on the fuse while it's in the holder (with the microwave unplugged, of course) then turn the fuse by hand or take it out and put it back in, then test it again.

If you remove the fuse, then press the meter leads against the ends, it can allow internal contact to be made and make a bad fuse appear to be good.

There should 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 by entering your full model number here. Once you have the part numbers, though, I would suggest ordering parts here at a much lower cost.

SOURCE: GE microwave Turnable turns on opening the door

Thanks for the photo of the label!

It shows the FCC ID number, which I used to find schematics at the FCC Web site.

The problem is a shorted primary interlock switch.

This is the door switch which has two black wires connected to one terminal and a black and a blue wire connected to the other
terminal.

See these files for help:

If a switch is all you need, we offer a universal type for only $5 postpaid which you can order here.

hi,

The control board may need to be replaced, check your records to see if the unit is still in warranty, if it is call for repair. If it's not and you’re handy, you can find the part online and replace it yourself, just make sure you unplug it before you work on it. Please contact me if you need help.
