KCRM400 Jenn-Air microwave starting clock

Tried your combinations...didn't work. After entering digits, it goes to "enter cook". We think it is malfunctioning. Any ideas?

    The
    first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a
    minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

    If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

    (What "combinations" are you talking about? I checked your user name but couldn't find any other messages you had posted, so this question is kind of out of the blue to us...)

Typically in a microwave, you get into programming mode (sounds like the auto/clock button is doing that) set the time and then press START. Give that a try.

Replace the fuse with a ceramic fuse from Home depot! costs less than $3 and it will fix the problem. I had all the same problems as everyone else, you name it my microwave had it! you must remember replace it with a ceramic fuse! not a glass one. I know people say its the switchboard and all that nonsence but I promise you, the fuse plays a majoe roll in the microwave not working properly. Even though it doesnt look broken, a junky fuse can cause your appliance to do very strange things. I replaced mine 6 months ago and it works like its fresh out of the box.

OOPS!

I meant to post that as a solution, not a clarification request, so it came out as one big blob paragraph (Thanks, FiyXa!)

Here it is again, but in readable form:


You have a failing membrane keypad.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

It is part number WB27X10171 and while GE sells it for a whopping $115.50, you can get it for $90.58 here.

You can also find helpful exploded view diagrams via that link.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If you would like to have us do this repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs, in this case
$90.58 plus $8.95 shipping for a total of $139.48.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

It may just be a fuse. Some models have more than one.

Otherwise, I would suggest that you check all the door switches and mounts.

R-402JW-T won't cook


From your description you have a bad door switch, there are usually a few of them located inside the microwave under the keypad control board that will need a digital meter to trouble shoot.

Ihave a Jenn-Air JMV8196 microwave oven. The clock works,the fan works and the light works. Not sure why the microwave will not come on to cook. Help?


The problem is caused by one of three things, the magnetron "heats food" the high voltage diode "sometimes shorts" or the high voltage capacitor " shorts"

Viking microwave has digital lights but will not turn on to cook?


Hi the problem will be with the touch panel membrane or the controller. if yoiu can hear a click when the start button is pressed then the touch panel is OK asnd you should look at the controller which can be replaced as a unit or if you are up to it it's probably the main cook relay that has failed.

Whirlpool(GH7145XF2-0) does not work occasionally


That's how it would sound if you were cooking on a power level less than full power.

If you enter the cooking time and hit Start, it should cook at full power by default and not cycle like you describe.

If you are using some sensor cook setting or automatic type cooking setting, it may cycle like that normally.

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.

If you don't have your manual, you can download it free here. Check the lower right area to enter your model. number.

No power on Jenn-Air JMC 7000 ADB Microwave


It's either the fuse or the thermostat on the magnetron.

Jenn-Air JMC7000 Microwave Stopped working


So it's dead? (No display, no inside lights, no beeps?)

A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the thermostat to open. When it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

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

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

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
