SOURCE: replace fuse on GE Advantium Speedcooker Oven

there is a fuse located underneath the outer cover, its called a ceramic fuse and is of cartridge type about 1" long by 1/8" diameter and has a white body and 2 silver ends and you can take it to a hardware store they have them but make sure to get correct amperage rating 15 or 20 amp

A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

If the 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 / body of the oven.

If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the magnetron thermostat to open.

Then when it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

When checking thermostats, if it has a hood fan thermostat, that should read open, as opposed to the others, which should read closed.

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.

If it goes dead or blows the breaker when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

If it's intermittent or random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or a loose fuse holder, or even an intermittent fuse.

You should do a continuity test on the fuse while it's in the holder (with the microwave unplugged, of course) then turn the fuse by hand or take it out and put it back in, then test it again.

If you remove the fuse, then press the meter leads against the ends, it can allow internal contact to be made and make a bad fuse appear to be good.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

NOTE: There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

The magnetron draws a lot of power and the mains may be dipping beneath an acceptable level, causing the panel to reset.
Check the supply cable size and any connections.

GE eterna spacemaker microwave won't heat


The problem is a magnetron, "heart of the system" or the inverter board, "if 7 years old or less" and possibly the keypad control board, all of these items are not cheap and lethal voltages are present.

GE micro died


The main fuse is the probable cause, magnetron, "heart of the microwave oven" the inverter board, "if 7 years old or less" and the keypad control board can be a factor.

Hi, we get microwaves all the time at my shop, look usually they cost more to fix than a new one. They usually have a limited life, I advise you to ask for a 'Quote" and go from there at least that way you know to repair or replace.

The main power fuse inside the MW may have been blown from the steam shorting out the circuitry. If so this fuse probably can be replaced. Lowes has replacement fuses.
