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.

How do I know wattage for 1974 recipes and convert cooking time to todays microwave (1200)


A 1974 Microwave Oven is probably not putting out more than 600 watts. You need to do a power test to determine it's actual power output. Place a 2 cup glass measuring cup with exactly 500 mL of cold water. Record the starting temperature of the water. Run the microwave on 100% power for 18 seconds, using a watch or timer, not the timer on the unit. Take the water out and stir it to make sure that there are no hot or cold spots in the measuring cup. Record the new temperature. Example: 78.4-64.1= 14.3.
Multiply 14.3 X 38.75= 554.125. The power output is 554 watts IEC. If the recipe is set for a 1200 watt unit, and your is almost 600 watts, obviously, you would double the cook time. Since this is rough, you need to experiment a bit. If the cook time is 10 minutes, check your product at 8 minutes. Be sure to push the stop button before you open the door when it is in cook mode. This will save wear and tear on door switches and leave the remaining cook time on the timer. Let me know how this works out for you..

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?)
See our help file on door switches here.

Kenmore elite microwave 721.80833 stops cooking intermittently


Check the door switches if one is bad it may think the door is being opened and stop the unit from running. If it is from a bad connection it will get worse as it gets hotter while running.

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.

My microwave want cook


Hello

and/or circuit breakers, particularly in the case of recent power failure, and reset if necessary.


Unplug the microwave, wait 30 seconds and plug back in to the power supply to reset the microcomputer.


Open and close the microwave door firmly and press "Stop/Reset." Select a new cook time and press "Start."


Ensure a proper cooking temperature and/or time is chosen, as low cooking temperatures or short cooking times may prevent the microwave from heating food appropriately. Press "Power Level" to ensure the microwave is cooking at 100 percent power.


Contact an authorized service technician if the problem is still unresolved.

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.

Microwave stopped working??


Your microwave safety interlock mechanism is faulty. They are hooked right into the main power . Its very complex...the schemnatic looks like a safety system for a nuclear warhead or something -- it's overkill.

But microwaves are involved. Sometimes you can clean them but my experience is taht once they go they're gone because the door latches are just plastic and they do wear down and simply won't have enough material on them to get all the switches to work.
