I have a Jenn-Air JMC7000ADW Microwave / Oven in wall combo that is 9 years old. My microwave stopped working last night. The oven still works. Do you think this is easily fixed? Thanks,
I have a Jenn-Air Microwave/Oven combo, Model WM27160. I started a oven self cleaning cycle and the microwave stopped working. Everything on the microwave control console went blank. As in no power. Checked the circuit breaker and it was on and OK. Following the solution to a simular problem on another model Jenn-Air Micro/Oven combo I went looking for the reset button. Took the outside cover off. It took 6 screws. On the right side of the Microwave oven down on top of the Oven was a reset switch. The space as too tight for my hand so I used a yard stick to reach in and press down on the reset switch. I worked! The microwave oven came alive. I replaced the front panel cover and I was done. It seems that the heat from the self cleaning process caused the reset switch to trip open and cut power to the microwave oven.
Thanks for the solution for this problem. It worked great for me.

I have the same double wall oven, and it will "turn on" and then shut off after about 30 seconds. The top oven stopped working 4 years, the bottom oven stopped working about 2 years ago. Both are doing the same thing. I'm interested in replacing the capacitors to see if that fixes the issue. There are 2 larger capacitors (1000uf 35v), and lots of smaller ones. Is it safe to assume it's the larger ones that need to be replaced? The only other 2 matching capacitors are very small (0.47uf 5v). I know this is an old thread but would appreciate any advice. Thanks!
We've had a Jenn-Air wall oven & microwave, Model #JMW9530DAS for 9 years. We never had any problems with it except for the irritating dust that collects between the oven glass. After returning from a 10 day vacation, we got a 1c2c error code when pressing "Bake." The oven worked fine before we left so we were baffled. We tried other settings like "Broil" "Convect" to no avail. It kept telling us to call for assistance. We tried shutting off the power to the unit for a few minutes but got the same 1c2c error again. So we called a local appliance repair shop (associated to the appliance store we purchased the unit from) and paid a fee to have him assess the problem. He really couldn't pinpoint the problem but suggested it "could be the membrane or the controller." And, to top that, he said Jenn-Air stopped making the membrane but they are going to start making them again and we could get one in 6-8 months at a cost of $500. So now we were looking at a $300 controller & possible $500 membrane....plus labor. We were so frustrated that we decided to tackle the problem ourselves before going out and buying a new oven. We shut the power off and tried pulling the oven out of the wall. Too heavy. After about 20 minutes of the power off, we turned it back on and decided to use the "SetUp" feature as if we were using the oven for the first time, following the directions in the instruction manual. We stepped through the process (clock, auto convect, language, C/F, etc...) then pressed the "Convect" button (instead of "Bake") and voila! It worked! After the Convection Bake Preheat worked successfully, we pressed "Bake" and it worked, too. We just saved ourselves over a thousand dollars as we were going to get rid of the piece of junk. So, before you give up, try turning the power off for a half hour & use the SetUp key and walk through the process.
This is an older (Mfgr. May, 1987) microwave oven. Functions perfectly, works an looks good to this day, just no light inside. I searched a couple of websites looking for parts for this unit and appliancepartspros.com provided schematics of the product that I own. From those drawings, it was determined that the microwave oven will have to be slid out of the cabinet above the built-in oven in order to change a $2.37, 40W light bulb. Just a handfull of scrws retaining the oven and exhaust baffles and I'll get it out (onmce the New Year's Eve hangover disappears). The engineer who designed a system like this must have been on an Acid Trip. I haven't looked closely at newer microwave ovens, but I'd have to believe changing a crummy light bulb would have to be made easier than this during the preliminary engineering phase of design.
lendebr is right...
Same problem here on combo microwave and convection oven. The hinges are a horribly wimpy design. Jenn air has a replacement part thats helps..but the replacment hinges will do the same thing in very short order. 1 month after I fixed ours my sister in law opened the oven door and let go of the door when it was about 2/3 open and that was all it took to tweak the new hinges so the door doesnt close all the way again. i should have clued in when the girl at Jenn air sent me three sets of replacement hinges. I thought it was a mistake..turns out she knew it wasnt going to fix it permanently.
The moral is that Jenn air appliances are POS and I will not ever buy anything from the again..But I will tell everyone I possibly can not to buy anything from them.
