Itmay be the fuse, which is usually located behind the grille or on thefloor of the oven behind the control panel or between the door switches.

Atour site, we now have a video available showing how to remove a typicalover the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Ifthe fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout (TCO)/ thermal fuse on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / bodyof the oven.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Thereshould also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind thecontrol panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which isvery helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

It will tell you how to test various components, too.

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

Hi I have a Samsung SMH9187 micowave that is dead (no display, light, fan, mirowave).


Sounds like the main fuse blew. It's either near where the power cord enters the cabinet, or behind the control panel (if an over the range unit).

You may also have some type of failure in the high voltage circuit; based on your description of the symptoms.

I have a GE JVM2070SH001 micowave . I do not have power to the under unit lights (work,nitelight) but everything else works fine. What is the likely problem?


Either the control board or the switch itself. I can't remember if that on is part of the main keypad or not. Does the unit beep when you press the light button? If it does then you need to follow the wiring to a point where you have power. Best guess...control board

Magic Chef VM11EB-8P micowave oven act like nothing is wrong ,but will not heat .make all regular noises like it is working


It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

How to install a electric line for over stove micowave


This is usually best left to a licensed electrician, however in some homes there is already electrical wiring over the stove for an exhaust fan. You might be able to tap into the exhaust fan wiring and install an outlet that you can plug the microwave into, or if there is an electrical outlet near the stove area you might can tap into it just be sure that you are not overloading the outlet. For example if there is a refrigerator or other major appliance using power from this outlet it might not carry enough current to operate the refrigerator and the microwave at the same time and will cause the circuit breaker to open or fuses to blow.

Kenmore micowave oven interior light


THe microwave has to be removed from the wall and then the outer cabinet has to be removed to get to the bulb. Do not do this with the unit plugged in and do not do this if u don't know how to work on a microwave as there is a shock hazard.

IF IT IS THE KEYPAD THAT IS LOCKED, ONE OF THE TOUCH PADS SHOULD BE HELD FOR 5 SECONDS TO UNLOCK THE
TOUCH CONTROL.YOUR INSRTUCTION MANUAL WILL TELL
YOU WHICH PAD TO HOLD. IF NOT AVAILABLE, TRY EACH PAD, ONE AT A TIME. HOLD EACH PAD FOR 5 SECONDS.
IF NO RESPONSE, TRY THE NEXT ONE. WHEN YOU FIND THE ONE THAT UNLOCKS THE CONTROL, WRITE IT DOWN
FOR FUTURE REFERENCE. THAT PAD WILL ALSO LOCK THE CONTROL WHEN HELD FOR 5 SECONDS.

Gold Star convection microwave model ER-930C


If you have a sentimental attachment to this microwave (lots of the older ones feel so much more "quality" than the flimsy throw away versions offered today), then you might want to pick up a service manual to diagnose your issue. Here is one being offered and it has a troubleshooting guide. http://www.analogalley.com/osccart/index.php?manufacturers_id=61

1800 XL JVM1860BD - won't work


It sounds like your controller may be failing. Or it could be an electrical line problem. Any other electrical itmes giving you trouble? Has anyone measured the voltage level of your power line? It should be around 110-125 volts AC. If it's significantly lower or higher, you may have a bad connection in your breaker panel or in the wiring leading to the home.
