If the fuse is good, you probably have an open TCO or a problem on the control panel.

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.

There are four TCOs in this model. 3 have black views, and one has violet / blue wires connected. Ignore that last one.

It will read normally open, but the others should read normally closed.

To check the cavity TCO, you will need to pull the oven from the wall and remove the outer cover.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases in about a week or so.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

My GE microwave JVM1860 is dead, no power. I checked the electric outlet and the fuse/breake panel. Nothing.


One of the most common problems with Ewave microwaves is a loose blade on the cooling fan, causing the magnetron to overheat.

At this time looks like the magnetron, the magnetron TCO and the fan blade have to be replaced.

I had a repair man out to fix my microwave and all it took was to reset the unit. We shut off the power source ( at the breaker box ) and turned it back on. This had the effect of a reset. Now it works fine. Hope this helps.
