Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

We installed a Jenn-Air Microwave today JMV9169BA.  The microwave works, it boils water, and heats food.  But when we use a sensor to say, re-heat pizza, the microwave starts and runs a few seconds and then we get an error code - E-11.  We have tried to unplug and restart.  But the error code persists.

Jenn-air jmv9169ba will not heat


I hope you are a technician as there are lethal voltages inside a microwave , you could also inadvertently expose yourself to microwave radiation if protective switches are disabled or the door seals are damaged .Open the microwave top cover, disconnect the two wires going to the Power Transformer (The Big one) and connect a Dummy Bulb and Power up if the Bulb goes ON and OFF according to your settings, the control Panel is OK, or else replace .Check the High voltage diodes, Protector Diodes and the high voltage capacitors , if they are OK the magnetron is suspect. The high voltage transformer rarely fails. If the microwave is of the inverter type , forget it, it is not for amateurs to repair.

Heating problems Jenn-air microwave - jmv8000bds - it heats while unused for a while but to warm more than the first item is not working - what is broke? jeffrey40@yahoo.com


First, check to make sure that the air vents are clear. Secondly, is the cooling fan running? If these are OK, (how old is this unit?) it's probably the magnetron is old and weak....... Put in a container with 2 quarts of cold water and run it for 10 minutes. It should boil water after about 4 or 5 minutes and keep boiling it for the remainder of the timer preset. If not, the magnetron is losing power.

I have jenn-air microwave oven model m167. Unit will come on and all programming works to heat food. Oven acts as if it is heating food,however it does not cook or heat food items. Any help with...


It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

My Jenn-Air microwave JMV8208AAS will not heat the food and when turn on it makes a loud humming sound.


This is most likely the magnetron, the high voltage capacitor, or the power diode.

For an explanation on how these things are repaired, check out this website.

If all else fails, call an Appliance Repair Technician.

Crackling and popping sounds when you heat up food


thats normal water expanding and boiling off from the microwave boiling those tiny water pockets in food... sounds like popcorn sometimes.
Cover your food with a paper towel to avoid spatter on the ceiling of the microwave when this is happening.
