Question about GE JVM1870 Microwave Oven
Some advice that I have received has been that the magnetron, high voltage capacitor, or diode could be bad. Another person in this forum suggested that I check the fuses. After disconnecting the power I have partially disassembled the MWO (microwave oven). I do see two fuses - "Main Fuse" and "HVT Fuse" (High Voltage Transformer?). According to the factory schematics/parts list both fuses are 20A 65TL. Which one do you think could be causing my no heating issue? Should I replace them in any certain sequence? Any other concerns that I should be aware of prior to trying to fix the problem myself? At the end of the day... I can't/don't to afford to 1) buy a new MWO as some have suggested or 2) pay extremely high repair charges for a factory repairman regarding a hopefully simple problem that I could fix. Any help that you could provide would be greatly appreciated as my wife is getting upset that she has not been able to use her MWO for a couple of days now.
