Question about Jenn-Air JMC7000 Microwave Oven

Open Question

Jenn-Air JMC7000 ADW

My JennAir quit working. The control panel still works. The time is displayed and you can select a cook time but the microwave never comes on when you hit the start button. The timer begins counting down the time and the light comes on, but nothing happens. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks

Do the inside light and cooling fan come on when you press Start?

If so, the problem is likely to be in the high voltage section.

If not, then the problem is likely to be related to the door switches or possibly the controller.

Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part (such as a shorted diode)

Your model may also have a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

Need to replace JMC7000 Microwave


Yours will likely have a bad high voltage diode, transformer or magnetron, all of which are covered under the extended parts warranty for five years from the date of purchase!

All you have to pay is labor, unless it's less than the two-year full warranty, then there's no charge.

That's a really great warranty!

It's on the back page of the owner's manual.

If you opt for replacement, Jenn-Air Customer Care can tell you which model would be a "drop-in" replacement.

JennAir Microwave worked one minute then won't the next.


If this microwave is more than a couple of years old, it's possible that the magnetron tube or a rectifier has burned out. You'll probably need to take it to an experience microwave service technician to get a diagnosis.

How do I fix a Jenn-Air JMC7000 that does not heat up items?


The noise is coming from the high-voltage transformer being overloaded by something shorting it out. Either the magnatron or the high-voltage capacitor and diode. Replace the capacitor and diode then if still not working, replace the magnatron. Its only affordable if you do it yourself - buy the part on EBAY - lookup "universal magnatron"
Hope ya fix it!

Jenn-Air JMC7000 Microwave Stopped working


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.
