Question about GE JVM1850 1000 Watts Microwave Oven
First you'd want to disconnect the oven from the wall outlet or turn off the breaker. You usually need to remove the grille running across the top edge. It is held in place by screws or clips or both. Then your control panel frame will be held in place by a screw, probably at the top. Once that is out, the control panel frame will either swing down like a drawbridge or lift up and away from the chassis. Don't pull too hard on the wires! At this point, don't reach too far back into the oven, as the high voltage section may still have a charge on it. The fuse should be easy to spot on the floor of the chassis or by the door switches. It's likely either a 20A or 15A ceramic type, which is widely available at local stores. Please note that other things can make an oven go "dead", such as a bad thermostat ot thermal cutout, a control board problem (which I repair for $32.50 natiowide) or another part or connection problem. Be safe, and post back if you have other trouble.
