Question about GE JVM1651 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

MY JVM1190WY MICROWAVE STOPPED WORKING SUDDENLY

I opened the door to my microwave and started the time cook. It stopped working the instant the time started. All power went out on it. I checked the breaker and that's not the problem. I also plugged another appliance in the plug in and it worked fine so it has to be something wrong with the microwave. I've read other problems and it sounds like it may be a fuse. What's your thoughts? If it is a fuse where would I purchase one for it?

    Thank you for your response. It went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, which means it's probably shorted the high-voltage capacitor. Now I need to know where the capacitor and fuse are located. Also can I purchase these from a dealer and replace them myself?



    Thank you. Hope to hear from you soon. I sure miss my microwave.

    I took the grill and panel off and can not find the mini manual. Is there more than one fuse in this model? I removed the only one I can see but can not tell if it's bad or not. I will get another one and replace it to see if that's the problem. If not, I may be asking for more help from you.

    Thank you

    I'm sure your fuse it blown, but the question is, what failure caused the fuse to blow?

    If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

    If it went dead several seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

    If
    it goes dead or blows the breaker (or GFI) when you plug it in or open or close
    the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch
    mount.


    Which sounds like your situation?

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

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

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

CATA MC25SS microwave not heating


Usually when a microwave's fuse blows, it will be dead, not partially functioning.
It may be a bad door switch or mount.
(Anybody in the home opening the door while it's cooking?)

Not heating


Hello


Power Supply

Check whether there is a proper power supply. Look to see whether the cord is connected to a grounded 3-prong outlet and the cord is fully plugged in. If the electrical system is built-in and no power cord is visible, replace or reset the household fuse or circuit breaker.

Microwave Functions

Some basic microwave operational steps may affect whether the microwave is heating. Open and close the microwave door, as the unit will not function with the door open, and push "Stop/Clear" to cancel any previous settings, such as the timer, which do not heat the microwave oven.

Setting the Microwave

Once the power to the microwave has been reset, or verified as working, and the microwave is ready to run, select a new cook cycle and press "Start" to see if the microwave begins to run and cook food as expected. Allow the food to cook for the alloted time and then open the microwave door and check to see if the food has cooked or heated. Choose a longer cooking time and restart the microwave if food is heating but is cooking slowly.

Repair

If all efforts to troubleshoot the function and power to the microwave still do not get the appliance heating food as expected, there may be a repair issue that needs to be addressed. Contact professional technician for advice.

Burns my popcorn constantly. is there a different setting i can put it on?


HELLO.

Solution to your microwave problem is given as below.

* 1 Set your Daewoo microwave on a countertop near an electrical outlet and plug it in. Open the door and place the circular roller guide in the center of the oven cavity, then place the glass cooking tray over it.

* 2 Set your food on a microwave-safe dish and then put the dish on the cooking tray and close the door. Make sure that it latches properly.

* 3 Turn the upper knob to select a power level. Power levels include "Defrost," "Med-High," or "High." If your Daewoo has a touch pad, touch the "Microwave" button once to set the highest power level. Touch it consecutive times to lower the power level.

* 4 Turn the lower knob to set the cooking time. For cooking times less than two minutes, turn the knob up past the two-minute mark, then back to the correct time. For touch pad models, enter in the cooking time with the numerical keys and then press "Start."

* 5 Open the door at any time to stop the cooking and check the temperature of your food. Shut the door to automatically continue cooking, or turn the timer knob to the right to add more time. For touch pads, press the "Stop/Clear" button, then key in a new cooking time and press "Start."

* 6 Open the door when the timer reaches the "Off" position and take out your food.

Thanks.

We own a Panasonic 1100 watt Inverter microwave. It has worked fine until recently - it has now started to "turn on" whenever the door is opened. Now, when you open the door the light...


HI:
You have a faulty door switch, the unit is not supposed to come on when the door is opened only the light.This unit may require servicing as the control board may also be at fault.

Cooking doesnt start


Microwave?

Generic advice follows.

Do you open the door while the machine is cooking? Do it a lot? For a long time (months)? Check your door safety interlock switches. The microswitches can not stand that type of abuse. I have personal knowledge on this. I try not to open the door until it stops, but it is hard usually to do that!!!

If you need more help, let me know.

Our microwave stopped working suddenly. It's a GE JVM1330 and was made in 1996. The buttons on the control panel work fine, and the light inside turns on. We can enter a cook time, and it counts down as if...


It's one of the micro-switches (3) that are part of the interlocking safety circuit. I actually took my switch apart and fixed it, but 99% of those out there would (and should) replace the switch.

My microwave is not working and the repair in scheduled for April 3rd. This is not acceptable. Please helop me to find how I get in touch with the department that handles scheduling.


My Panasonic 1300 W Microwave will not turn off. When I open the door after cooking it restarts and when I open the door before cooking it starts. I can stop it by pressing stop/reset before opensing the door after cooking has stopped but if I press this befroe opening the door to put a meal in to start cooking it will turn on by itself. What's causing this and is it worth fixing?

Over the range Microwave trouble


It is a door switch problem of some sort.  I have two Sharp R-1611 units that do the same thing.  The light and fan come on, but not the heat, thank goodness.

I am going to replace it since the plastic for the case and door is cracked in numerous places.  I have spent several hours researching microwaves online have not a single clue what to replace the Sharp with.  Seems like every vendor has very good units and very bad units.  I guess you just pay your money and take your chances.
