Question about Jenn-Air JMV8196 Microwave Oven
I was cooking and then the fan came on .... I pushed the fan button off but the fan will not shut off. I unplugged the microwave and the fan will still not shut off. Is the unit safe to use? And what could cause the fan not to shut off?
It's most likely a shorted hood fan thermostat or a stuck relay on the control circuit board. We repair these controllers nationwide with our $32.50 service. You can find out about that through the link in my profile. Concerning the thermostat, if you or a friend is handy, it's not hard to check and replace. It should be electrically open when it's not hot. My profile links you to my Web site, where I offer free critical text files on safety & disassembly. Lastly, you can visit the Sears parts Web site where they have helpful exploded view diagrams and where you can order a thermostat if needed. Sears carries parts for many brands. Post back if you need more help.
