• ** REMEMBER! **The microwave can still shock you even unplugged!!

    ALWAYS discharge the high-voltage capacitor first if you even think your hands will come close to any HIGH VOLTAGE components.

    Jeff mentions this: Anything in the high voltage ( magnetron, capacitor, diode, wires to and from ):
    ...Use a metal ( not the shiny chrome type ) screw driver with a insulated handle to short across ( touch both at the same time ) the terminals of the high voltage capacitor to discharge it.

My GE microwave (JVM1190BY 002) is displaying an F4 code whenever I try to use any of the sensor features. I understand that to correct the problem I need to replace the humidity sensor. However, when I call GE to order the part or check any of the online part sites, the humidity sensor is not listed. Does that sensor go by another name? Maybe flame or receptacle sensor?

Thanks,
--Brent

Hi,

Humidity is a gas....maybe that is why GE sometimes calls it a gas sensor...
