SOURCE: cooling fan diagnosis GE JVM1443WK

automatic fan feature protects the microwave from too much
heat rising from the cooktop below it. It automatically turns on at
low speed if it senses too much heat.
If you have turned the fan on you may find that you cannot turn it
off. The fan will automatically turn off when the internal parts are
cool. It may stay on for 30 minutes or more after the cooktop and
microwave controls are turned off

You can test it by pressing the vent fan button

SOURCE: Would this work or burn

This should work just fine as long as the breaker it is going to is at least 20 amps as this is the amount of amps that both fans would be drawing at once if the were both on. The 12/2 wire should be plenty to supply the 20 amps needed for the fans.

That's a H05BB-F two-phase cable - http://www.icc.it/view_cable.php?id=30 - and it's not intended for you to wired it up by yourself. There is of course a way, but the circuit has to be assessed for viability by a qualified electrician beforehand. The reason there's a two phase connection is that the current to the induction coil COULD be too much for a normal cable.

If that's the case, your kitchen circuit would become a fire hazard - the fuses would not blow, the differential wouldn't trigger, but the cable in the wall and behind your other appliances and furniture might catch fire.

2= 0.8 AMP OR LOWER,HALF AMP,problem is dpc board or the wireing to it

Replacing,repairing or testing of the inverter power unit is best left to professional engineers with acess to panasonic test procedures high voltage high current = danger of death.

if 1.5 amps or so and magnetron suspect check with continuaty tester for open circuit fillament or wireing to

It could be a problem with the power transformer or the power PCB . Or it could be just a fuse . You need to check first . If it's the fuse , then that will be easy to solve , you need only to replace it with new one . But if the problem is with the transformer or with the PCB , you need to take your microwave to the service for repairing .

CAUTION: A microwave oven is capable of giving you a serious electrical shock, even when it is unplugged. I strongly recommend you seek the assistance of an appliance repair technician when conducting any microwave oven repair .

Microwave does not heat up food


Hello :

It could be bad door switch or loose door switch mount . There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly .

 
But If the microwave doesn't work at all , then It could be a problem with the power transformer or the power PCB . Or it could be just a fuse . You need to check first . If it's the fuse , then that will be easy to solve , you need only to replace it with new one . But if the problem is with the transformer or with the PCB , you need to take your microwave to the service for repairing .

CAUTION: Your microwave oven is capable of giving you a serious electrical shock, even when it is unplugged. I strongly suggest you seek the assistance of an appliance repair technician when conducting any microwave oven repair .

Does not start. The power cord, plug, etc., are O.K.


Hello :

Maybe there's a problem with the power transformer or the power PCB [ Printed circuit board ] . Or it could be just a fuse . You need to check first . If it's the fuse , then that will be easy to solve , you need only to replace it with new one . But if the problem is with the transformer or with the PCB , you need to take your microwave to the service for repairing .

To locate the fuse, remove the outer cabinet of the unit, which is usually held in place with a few screws. Once the outer cabinet is removed, follow the power cord into the unit. It will take you to the fuse holder, where the fuse sits. The fuse holder is located two or three inches into the unit, and may be attached to a power board .

F-9 Error code


The F9 error code indicates a failed inverter. If resetting the unit does not help you will need to have the inverter & harness checked.


http://media.fotki.com/1_p,wbgdfgsrsttwqwbxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/kgdfkfrkkxkfdtftrfb/1/1303472/5961857/image45625img-or.jpg

This can sometimes by caused by a power surge or glitch through the electrical lines.
You can sometimes clear this fault by completely unplugging the microwave for 1 minute.
Plug it back in and see if the fault code returns.
If it does, then you have an internal component failure that will need to be serviced by a technician.
Microwaves must be serviced by technicians due to the inherent dangers involved in repairing these appliances.
Internal capacitors can retain a lethal electrical charge even though the unit is completely unplugged.
A microwave radiation leakage test must be performed on the unit following any internal component repair.

It does not ALWAYS indicate a inverter control board problem however in other brands/models.
LG's service manual (for an example) suggests the f-9 code could be due to line voltage, magnetron, inverter module, "Relay2", or a loose connection between door/magnetron/control pcb.
Other indications might help narrow down these choices before having to pull out your multimeter and crack open the microwave case.
For example, if the microwave works, but heats slowly, then the troubleshooting manual narrows your choices down to magnetron or line voltage problems, and pretty much rules out the other possibilities.
