Need to know how to take down this under cabinet model for replacement?


Two or three screws on the top of this microwave (mc), which are located on the top cabinet. Loose them first. Also the bottom of the mc is attached to a metal edge against the wall. Need at least two men to hold and unload it from the wall.

WHERE IS THE FUSE ON THOSE MODELS NN-SD277 MICROWAVE


If mounted on the wall above the range, this may be a 2-man job to remove, and the electrical repair may not be for DIYer. 1st ask "Why is fuse bad?" Usually the fuse is located with other electrical/electronic components behind the control panel. To access: unplug, remove MW from wall, remove bonnet (3-sided metal shroud), expose the electrical compartment on the right side, search for the fuse (usually 1 1/4 x 1/4D cylinder). Replacing the fuse may not be the final answer.

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
Actually the unit does in deed have to be removed from the wall because the outer shell does need to come off there is a series of screws on the edge of the back that need to come off and there are some on the sides then the outer cover will slide to the back about 1 to 2 inches then lift off and the fuse is on the control board towards the front right as you are looking at it from the front of the microwave ok
Hope this helps best regards mike

How do I remove my ge jvm 1653 microwave?


Clean out the cabinet above the micro wave and you will find 2 or 3 bolts that secure the unit (MW) to the bottom of the cabinet. They will normally be towards the front of the cabinet.
I always put a towel or cardboard over the surface of the range for protection and a place to set the MW once it is ready to come down.

Have someone either hold the MW up by putting pressure upwards on the front of the MW or take the screws out. (don't forget to unplug the MW)
Gently let the front of the MW fall forward about 6" to 8" and lift the back of the MW upwards and it will release from a mount that is attached to the wall.
You may feel a little resistance as it might be duct taped to the exhaust going up or out the back.
Be aware that these older micro waves can be a little heavy and it is recommended that 2 people are used to do this.

Was microwaving a hotdog on a paper plate covered by another paper plate and the microwave just kind of went poof and now nothing lites up (display) and it wont work. I checked the breaker it is on and...


Yes there is.

Unplug the MW.
Uninstall from wall mount (if installed that way.).
Remove outer cover by removing the screws at back and (possibly) bottom sides.

Locate fuse. Replace only with an equivalent type and amperage.

You can test the MW without reinstalling or putting the outer covering back on.

Replace the buttons on a kitchenaid microwave Khhs179lss-5


First, you need to uninstall the microwave (MW) from the cabinet by removing the screws that hold it in place at the top. Open the cabinet doors above the MW to locate the screws.
You will need someone to help you at this point in removing the screws and dropping the MW down. Be sure and unplug the MW before you remove the screws.
Next, you need to take the cover/shell off by locating and removing screws A/R. They are mostly across the back and side bottom.
From there on out, you should be able to methodically find and locate the various fasteners that will get to the button pad.

No power


Can be seceral things but let me run by the simple ones first.

The MW does not have enough airflow that eill causer the sensor to switch it off. Briing it away from the wall a bit for air flow

The moisture from the defrost caused the sensor to cut in and switch it off. Unplug the MW and leave for a few hours ( tea will be delayed :0)

The Internal fuse blew. The outer cover has to be removed to replace the fuse ( unlug it first)
The fuse may be of the heavy duty ceramic type Do not substitute it)

The throw out to the MW plug went off in h/hold power box. reset it. Test point with another item.

Now those are the simple things you should check. first

The main one is the failure of the magnatron, but you would have lights and turntable activity, so... so far so good.

JVM1850BH02 Microwave completely shut down, not working after...


The extreme heat has opened up one of the thermostats / thermal cutouts (TCOs) in the oven.

If it was the bottom TCO or magnetron TCO, you should be able to access them by just removing the control panel.

But if it's the one on top of the cavity, the oven will have to come out of the wall, then you need to pull of the outer cover..

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

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.

You should locate and look this over first.

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.

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

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

GE Microwave JE1640 works only when holding the switch


VK, most likely the switch body has become loose and it's out of adjustment. Unfortunately, to gain access to it, you'll have to remove the MW from the cabinet, set it on a suitable work area and disassemble it. Before doing anything like this, please read the following link carefully and ask yourself if you're up to it... http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/safety.html Remove the trim then remove the screws holding the MW. Pull the MW out and rotate slightly to see where it's plugged in and unplug it. Then pull it all the way out. Remove all the aluminum trim from the MW and all the screws holding the cabinet. To remove the cabinet, stand behind the MW and grasp both sides... pull back and up at the same time. Set aside. NOW!!! DISCHARGE THE CAPACITOR AS PER THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THE LINK ABOVE!!! OK, up by the control panel, you'll see the latch/lock assy. (it has 3 brown switches mounted to it). It's held in place by 2 screws, the lower screw is the one you'll be working on. Adjust this by opening and closing the door and watch the action on how it works and make your adjustments as needed. Now, you'll need to test it before reinstalling. Plug it in, BUT DON'T TOUCH ANY WIRING! Now give it a try. If you need to make another adjustment, DISCHARGE THE CAPACITOR AGAIN BEFORE DOING SO!!! Do this every time you plug and unplug! Continue adjusting 'til you get it. Now, there's a chance that one of those switches is about to go bad and the mounting bracket is fine. In this case, those switches are generic... not GE specific. Remove the wiring from the switches and make notes on their respective locations. Remove the switches from the bracket (starting from the top) and label them 1, 2 and 3. Take these to your local appliance parts store and ask for generic replacements, they are cheap... about 5 bucks each. Then replace them in the same order you removed them. And re-test. This will get you fixed, but please be careful working on Microwave ovens. They are dangerous!

It's pretty simple to replace the light without having to remove the oven from the wall...as long as you have an offset phillips screwdriver...

Of course, be sure to disconnect power to microwave and be sure not to touch the new halogen bulb with fingers.

STEP-BY-STEP:
First, remove upper vent panel and remove inner filter (same directions for just replacing inner carbon filter):

Then, remove inner plastic grille (2 screws) and final screw on left side of metal "air duct" - here's where you'll need the offset screw driver (and a little patience!):

Then, you can gently lift the sheet metal panel, find the light housing, squeeze and remove/replace :)

That's it...just replace bulb and reverse for reassembly. Be sure to keep track of screw locations there are various sizes/lengths used.
