Question about Jenn-Air JMC8130DD Microwave Oven
Jenn-air microwave with oven attached jmc8130dds.2nd time microwave has gone dead..1st time when i was cleaning oven and this time when i was using broiler..2 years old? i payed 150 dollars for service man that he never heard of such a thing and pulled out unit and reset ? something in back...Will I have to keep paying 150 dollar service call everytime i use broiler or when i clean the oven???
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.
