Question about Jenn-Air JMC7000 Microwave Oven
Checked the circuit breaker to make sure it was on
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.

I have the same problem every time I use the oven for a long time and then use the micro.
Solution is simple, yet unbelieveable.
This is a toggle switch. It is located on TOP of the oven box.
It is almost impossible to reach...but once reached, all you have to do is push it and it resets the micro.
1-remove the "frame" around the micro.
2-pull the micro out (use 2 people) far enough so that you can reach your hand - or I use a wooden yardstick- to toggle the thing. It is VERY tiny.

It's either the fuse or the thermostat on the magnetron.

It sounds like the magnetron may have
either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high
voltage required to run it.
SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT
This is a job for a professional but if
you are safety clued up, here's instruction.
Make sure the !!!!any capacitors are discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 or moving coil meter on high resistance range for short circuit, (DVM's won't show the fault!), the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.
