Question about Jenn-Air JMC8100 Microwave Oven
The magnatron, diode, and motherboard have been replaced and the fuses continue to blow when the machine is turned on. All parts show continuity and there is no obvious short in the machine. What should we do?
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
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.
