Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Jenn-air jmv8000b DOA

My Jenn-Ait Microwave was dead this morning, no clock, power etc. I changed the outlet, it works, breaker is okay-just no power. Is there a fuse in this that can be replaced? I am unemployed and cannot afford a service tech.

Thanks

The fuse is located in a plastic inline holder behind the control panel.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typicalover the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

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 / bodyof the oven.

There should also be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind thecontrol panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which isvery helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

If you need to check the oven cavity thermostat, you will need to remove the oven from the wall, and If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download Jenn-Air owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

No electricity Clock is off nothing works


Plug something else into the outlet and see if the device works if it doesn't then reset the breakers. If the other device does work then the microwave is bad and needs replacement.

EVERY PART OF THE MICROWAVE STOPPED WORKING


There is an internal fuse inside. Need to find the cause for it blowing or it will just go again. Check the monitor switch and door switches. Eric

No power on Jenn-Air JMC 7000 ADB Microwave


I have a different Jenn-Air built in microwave & oven combination but I'm sure my solution will work for you as well.

My microwave was plugged into an outlet located on the top of the oven. This outlet has a "circuit breaker" that tripped while we were using the self cleaning feature on the oven. You just need to reset the breaker button right next to the wall oven outlet. Why it tripped is a mystery since the microwave was not in use at the time. Bad design.

Of course, getting to the reset button is your only challenge. You need to pull the microwave and oven out of the wall/cabinetry in order to get to it. The unit is heavy so you will need help. Or, call a certified repairman and they should be able to do this for you in 30 minutes or less so the service call should not run you more than @$85 if it is no longer under warranty.

I would also suggest you contact Jenn-Air to complain about this issue and seek reimbursement from them if necessary.
