Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
Model # JES1142SJ04
The unit is completely dead. Is there a reset function other than unplugging? That did not work.
There's no other reset function. If a reset (unplugging) does not correct it, it will need to be repaired.
If it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free. GE Customer Service is here.
If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
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.
I would suspect a blown fuse or the magnetron;s thermal cutout / thermal fuse.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

I have similar problem, unplugged unit before vacation, returned to find that after plugging unit into a working receptacle the unit was completely unresponsive - no power to unit. Never had any problem before. Where are "blown fuse or the magnetron;s thermal cutout / thermal fuse." inside the microwave? Looked on diagrams for parts.
