There are several parts which can cause the unit to be dead, mainly the fuse, thermostat, thermal cutout, or control panel. You can find critical safety info and disassembly tips ay my site via my listing here: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can get handy exploded views and order any neededparts here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 Not sure about that model number though - you might want to verify that.

SOURCE: The power is not on anymore.

It ended up being just a $2.50 fuse. Thats all. Glad I didn't have to pay someone $80 to walk through the door and tell me that. Don't you hate that!

SOURCE: My GE Profile Microwave/Convection Oven stopped working.

Chances are that the thermostat / thermal cutout / T.C.O. (whichever it uses) has opened.

This can happen when the magnetron overheats, either due to it's failing, or if the internal cooling fan is not working.

It may also that be the 15- or 20A ceramic line fuse or the oven cavity thermostat / thermal cutout / T.C.O. (whichever it uses) has opened.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

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 find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

You should be able to get the fuse from a home center or local appliance parts store.

Accessing some components for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

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.

SOURCE: No power to GE Spacemaker Microwave

I have model GE Microwave serial # JVM2070SK02. I start to cook something and it shuts off 5~10 seconds. Keyboard is still lit up, but no clock, fan, light and you cannot operate anything on the key pad. Unplug the unit and it resets. Sometimes it cooks, sometimes it doesn't? It is getting more frequent with the shutting down problem?

The control panel of microwave dead. No lights on the panel. There is power to the outlet


If it worked after unplugging and reinserting, it is possible that there is a wiring problem with the plug and wiggling the wires "re-made" a connection. Try plugging in to another outlet to eliminate a dodgy outlet problem.

No power to microwave


Hello

Check the Power Cord

Verify that the power cord is properly connected the outlet; the plug might have been removed to make way for another appliance. Do not connect the microwave to an outlet via an extension cord or plug adapter; the oven must be directly connected to an outlet.
Switch the Outlet on

Turn the outlet on, if possible, using the switch on the wall behind the counter or on the plug itself. Some microwaves have a separate power switch that must be in the correct position before you can begin cooking.
Reset the Oven

Unplug the oven, wait a few seconds and reconnect the power. A power surge could have temporarily rendered the oven inoperable. The oven should start up as normal when you connect the plug to the outlet.
Check the Fuses and Breakers

See that the fuse or breaker protecting the oven's circuit is still active. Replace the fuse if it has blown, or reset the breaker to restore power to the oven. Stop using the microwave if it repeatedly blows fuses or trips breakers.

Microwave won't turn on. Seems like it is not getting power. I checked breaker. I am looking for a fuse. You know where one is? It is a GE Spacemaker(2 yrs old) model # JVM1440WH04


  • Make sure that the microwave is plugged into a grounded outlet. It must be a 3-prong outlet.
  • Make sure the clock is set.
  • Check to see if a programming sequence was entered. Sometimes improper programming or a program sequence such as delay start can cause the touch panel to be non-responsive. Unplug microwave or turn off house circuit breaker for 30 seconds. Plug back in, or reset circuit breaker, and try reprogramming unit.
  • Check the house circuit breaker or fuse box. If the microwave is DEAD and there is no display and nothing works- the problem could be a blown fuse or tripped breaker.

GE Sensor Microwave JES1855 died


Mine went dead after about 6 months. I had problems with my breakers and I found out that it was the microwave that blew all of them. I also found out that this perticular microwave is a fire hazard and should be recalled. It has caused me alot of headache. The breakers in my house are brand new and they are put out by GE also. It caused me to loose the food in my freezer, I did not know my freezer had lost power. It would cause my entire lights to go off and then they would come back on. I have checked around and I found out that the power cord on the back of the unit is very loose. I had a person to come in and look at it, he thinks its the power cord.

No Power at all


If it came installed in the house, it may have its own breaker switch. I'd check the breaker. Have any outlets in the kitchen gone out as well? This would support the breaker switch idea.

Hope this helps.
