Question about GE JVM2050 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Microwave turns on goes threw the motions but wont heat up..

I have an 2007 Emerson 900 Watt Microwave Oven. Model no. MW8781SB Microwave and recently it started to have a noise in the fan when I would heat up something in the mic. Next thing I knew it wasn't Heating up at all. The lights turn and everything seems to be fine but after the beep when you take your item out it's cold so it's not heating up...Can you please help me. Someone told me that it may be the H.V Capacitor but I would like a second opinion. If it is the H.V Capacitor do you know about how much it would cost?

If it is running, including plate rotating, and there is no heat, then you need to replace either a part called magnetron, or one called high voltage capacitor (HV cap.).

The magnetron is located behind a protective plate on the internal side of the owen. The high voltage capacito is in microwave circuits behind the main wall.

Both parts are not expensive.

Here you see a general diagram, and you can also buy the parts. Browse with the mouse on top of the picture to see the magnetron.

Here you can also get parts and diagrams.

Replacement trays cost around $30.00. The cheapest I found was on Ebay for $28.00. By the time you pay for shipping you can almost buy a new appliance. Also take care that you find one for your model, you can't always tell by looking if it is going to fit.

Try your local Goodwill or other thrift store for a used one.

Good luck

How do i replace a fuse on sunbeam microwave


If it does not heat, the magnetron tube died. Not worth repairing unless under warranty. Generally the only fuse is a main fuse. If it blew, the entire microwave would be dead.

I think the fuse is blown on my emerson microwave mw8781sb i test the power coming from the plug and there is power but none after that


You have blown the microwave internal fuse. If you are handy enough you can take the cover off and follow the power cord in the system. The fuse will be between the transformer and the power cord
YOU MUST DISCONNECT POWER CORD AS PART OF ELECTRICAL SAFETY WHILE WORKINGON ON THE SYSTEM!!
