Question about Microwave Ovens
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.
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.
