20 Most Recent Jenn-Air JMV8166B 950 Watts Convection / Microwave Oven Questions & Answers


I have a Panasonic Convection Micro. Yes, If you are using convection you can use metal pans. Microwave energy cannot pass through metal pans so that is why it is not good to cook in them. It could also cause arcing or reflect the microwave energy bak to the mag and over heat it. So, when possible use corning ware or Pyrex when using the microwave

Remove two phillips screws from each side of the microwave. One at the very top and one at the very bottom. Remove the front cover. There will be a couple of other screws and metal stops under the microwave that will need to be removed also. After that, the back of the microwave will need to lifted and move forward just a bit to release the back. Pull the microwave forward and toward the left side, enough to be able to reach behind the right side of the oven and unplug the microwave. Remove the microwave. To reinstall, just reverse these steps. It might help to use a mirror and check out the 110v 60Hz socket in the top right corner of the oven that you will need to plug the microwave back into when you replace it.

I have this same problem occasionally. Pull the vent grill open and look for a white cam that rotates when the microwave is on. To the right of that cam, there are two gray switches. The bottom switch should have a red tab that pops out. When the vent grill opens and closes continuously, the red tab is stuck in. Take a flat screwdriver or tooth pick and push gently in on the red tab to release it. It must get stuck due to grease or dirt accumulation. Good luck.

What are the dimensions of the Jenn-Air M170 built-in Microwave Oven (built 1998) that I need to specify for a replacement unit? Externally, I see the frame measuring 26 3/4" W by 17" H, and the unit within the frame measuring 22" W by 13" H.

Ed Michaels : Hi, your machine is long out of production and installation instructions usually come with the machine and are not published. you have a standard size 24" built in machine, and most 24" machines will fit the space. I would click on Jenn Air or call 1-800-JENN-AIR (536-6247) and ask for a replacement recommendation and a copy of old installation instructions for planning with designer or installer. They have access to records if anyone does and an interest in serving you. Alternatively, talk to another seller and discuss installation. they will also want to help. Let me know if I can help further.ed

Do you have the installation instructions that came with the oven? An electric oven requires a 220V circuit and the cable coming out of the wall you described is a 110 V circuit.

Jenn-Air... | Answered on Nov 27, 2017


It's really not safe to measure the voltage while it's running unless you truly have training and experience.

The risk is not "radiation," but instead the high voltage (4000VAC) and its frequency, which can be instantly lethal.

Microwave ovens do not contain or produce ionizing radiation as found in atomic or nuclear energy. That is just a common myth.

Microwave energy is much like radio waves or light, and while it can cause burns, you'd likely pull away due to heat before much if any damage were done.

The service manual (with installation instructions) is here:

When a high-voltage rectifier diode fails, it almost always shorts, which will result in a growling / groaning sound when trying to cook, but no heat. Ideally, this test should be performed on a high-voltage diode:

Something is shorted out. Leave the breaker off until you find it. You need an ohmmeter to find it, but look for the black marks for a hint.

The lamp is inside the oven so it is necessary to remove the cabinet but be aware that dangerous voltages are exposed even with power disconnected.

Hey David... sorry to say

There's a $14 fuse between cooking & your magnetron (could be other things (but in my opinion... magnetrons sound right for your symptoms)

I checked for your magnetron
and got MFR Number 461967847321 - not AVAILABLE.

(there is one $74 on eBay (
very bottom, below)).


I LOOKED at your oven and it is a really nice one...

So I think I'd be hitting all the on-line parts houses
to see if you can locate one...

Hi,

The only way is too remove the cover to the microwave. Part number WP4713-001012. If you have never entered into a microwave you may want someone to do this for you. Safety first!!
Good Luck

The Jenn Air microwave that is mounted above the oven in your unit is 110v 60Hz. The socket in the upper rear right corner of the oven is a 110v 6Hz socket and is where the microwave would be plugged in. If you are going to replace the microwave, you can plug it into that socket. If you would rather not use that socket, you will have to drill a hole in the side of the cabinet holding the over/microwave to get the power cord out.
