I'm afraid since Jenn Air has become a division of Whirlpool (along with numerous others) the quality has suffered.
I was going to suggest that you purchase a service manual for your unit so you could 'reset' it yourself. Service manuals can cost from $12-$40 US and in many cases obviate the need for 'professional' service calls. However, I couldn't find one offered for your model number so your only choices are to continue to pay for 'service' or examine the guts visually to see if you can locate any reset feature. This is what I would do.
When microwaves fail, older ones generally need a diode, a big capacitor or the magnetron replaced. Newer units are suffering power supply failures as many have moved from the reliable but less efficient 'linear' power supplies to 'switched mode' types that are more efficient but more complex and prone to failure. These later types usually have the word 'inverter' in the model description.

Jmc8130dds microwave died. any thoughts. previously numerous messages about locking the screen on its own.


I think it is time to replace the microwave oven, the fuse has blown and there are numerous reasons why, shorted power transformer, shorted filament winding in the magnetron, cracked high voltage diode with a high level short, and a shorted high voltage capacitor, not to mention issues with the keypad and microprocessor control board.

Replace the fuse. Need a drawing or something to tell me how to get to the fuse. Cannot see how to do it easily, without removing it from the wall.


The fuse for this model is on the filter board on top of the internal cooling fan frame.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven (JMC8130DDS) here.

If the fuse tests good, then the oven cavity thermostat, magnetron thermostat, and control circuit board (which we repair) are other parts that can make the oven dead.

Accessing some components (especially the oven cavity thermostat) for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall and take off 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 Jenn-Air owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

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