Question about Jenn-Air JMC8130DD Microwave Oven
This is an stacked microwave/electric oven installed in a cabinet. I need to remove the microwave to replace the light bulb. How are the two units connected together? If I separate them, can I still reinstall them so that them look the same as before?

First of all, what are the symptoms? Please reply back and I'll be happy to share my thoughts.
Many parts can be accessed without removing the oven from the wall by just removing the control panel.
You need to be sure the cord is unplugged, then you remove the vent grille that runs across the top.
Then you'll see a screw holding the control panel in place. Once that screw is out, you can lift out and out carefully to separate the control panel form the chassis.
If you pull any wires off the control panel, mark and/or photograph them first to be sure you get them ALL back in the right place.
There may also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

SOURCE: I have the Jenn-Air microwave
Most microwaves are similar in design, and here is how for a GE, which will most likely apply to the Jenn Air:
This site explains the process:
To discharge the cap, you can touch an insulated screwdriver across it's terminals, but just avoid the contacts and you will be fine.
Sorry to have to relay tough news, but how this helps you repair it.

I read your comment about needing to remove the control board to inspect it for damage. Looking at the diag. below, all you need to do is open the oven door and remove the two screws (#2 on diag.) fastening the brackets that hold the board in place and you can take it from there.
Refer to the diag. below If it was me, I would start by turning the breakers for both ovens OFF, then, in getting someone to help me pull the oven out, disconnect the power cord and check the power circuit protection devices like the fuse #4, located above the fan and the power board #25 also located on the back of the unit. Before replacing the blown fuse, inspect the wiring, If the unit is mounted over an oven that was in the Self Cleaning Mode that reaches temps. of about 500 degrees, there is a chance that a wire's insulation melted and shorted the unit.

I hope this info is helpful to you. If you need further assistance, just place a comment.

I would expect it to be connected to the same electrical circuit as your convection oven so if there are no breakers that have tripped in your electric panel and the convection oven still works then their are 2 options.
1) The Microwave is connected via a Fused Spur (or possibly a Plug direct into a Socket) and Fuse has blown. This could be located somewhere behind the Microwave or in a cupboard to the side or above.
2) The Internal Fuse on the Microwave has blown possibly due to a power surge or an internal component that's failed.
First thing to do would be to check for the Fused Spur or Socket located somewhere around the Microwave. If you can't find one then you would need to remove the Microwave and see where/how it's power supply is connected.
If you could look at this and then let me know your findings we can take the investigation from their.

Although most open via a screw at the top or left side of the control panel.
Some require the cabinet / casing to be removed. If there is no visible screws at the top or sides of the control panel. Then the casing will need to be removed.
