Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
Please help me with this. I just replaced a dead fuse on a whirlpool microwave/over range. After I replaced it I noticed everyting works fine, fan, light, but when I turn on the microwave, it runs for 2-3 sec and the fuse blows again. Is there a short in the magnetron and will I need to replace it to avoid the fuse from blowing again?
Couple questions -
what else is on the circuit,
and what current does the oven need
there are whirlpool over-range models with
1200watts of microwave,
1500watts of convection power, a
60watt bulb and a
over 15amps -20amp circuit needed
if you inadvertantly replaced a higher current fuse with a 15amp fuse, it will blow every time.
the install guide http://www.whirlpool.com/assets/pdfs/product/ZINSTALL/8206589.pdf reccommends 20amp
not a solution, something to check,
