So it's dead? (No display, no inside lights, no beeps?)

A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the thermostat to open. When it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

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

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 the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

SOURCE: No power on Jenn-Air JMC 7000 ADB Microwave

I have the same problem every time I use the oven for a long time and then use the micro.
Solution is simple, yet unbelieveable.
This is a toggle switch. It is located on TOP of the oven box.
It is almost impossible to reach...but once reached, all you have to do is push it and it resets the micro.
1-remove the "frame" around the micro.
2-pull the micro out (use 2 people) far enough so that you can reach your hand - or I use a wooden yardstick- to toggle the thing. It is VERY tiny.

Jenn-Air Microwave vent grill opens and closes


I have this same problem occasionally. Pull the vent grill open and look for a white cam that rotates when the microwave is on. To the right of that cam, there are two gray switches. The bottom switch should have a red tab that pops out. When the vent grill opens and closes continuously, the red tab is stuck in. Take a flat screwdriver or tooth pick and push gently in on the red tab to release it. It must get stuck due to grease or dirt accumulation. Good luck.

I always recommend that folks use the vent / hood fan anytime they're cooking with the stove.

Was it on at the time?

If not, moisture can certainly get into the works and cause problems or damage. If it dries out, it's fine but if not, it could cause damage.
