Jenn-Air JMW8530DAS disassembly of microwave

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.

Most microwaves are similar in design, and here is how for a GE, which will most likely apply to the Jenn Air:

To discharge the cap, you can touch an insulated screwdriver across it's terminals, but just avoid the contacts and you will be fine.

Hi!
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 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.

Hello, i'm looking to replace my light bulb in my jenn-air microwave oven modeljmc8130dds. any help would be greatly appreciated.


The lamp is inside the oven so it is necessary to remove the cabinet but be aware that dangerous voltages are exposed even with power disconnected.

How do I replace light bulb on my Jenn-Air microwave?


Hi.

You will need to partly disassemble the oven by removing the outer cover held by screws (the cover part 2 on the first diagram). once there you will see the bulb hand side, located on the right (the bulb is part 6 in second diagram).

Before disassemblying the appliance disconnect power, by tripping circuit breaker or unplugging the power cord.

Here the replacement part for the model JMC9158AAS, listed in title: PS391758 .
Diagrams below are also for Jenn-Air JMC9158AAS.

If you have a different model, use the links listed here: Where do I find parts and diagrams for my appliance?

Here the diagrams. Click on the pictures to enlarge.

Diagram 1:

Diagram 2:

5fc1f8e.gif

Unless you are a technician or a trained DIYer, better ringing the number listed on the owners manual to call service support. A badly assembled microwave will be dangerous for your health. The capacitor inside the microwave can also release dangerous discharge, take care and observe safety prescriptions while disassembling.

Regards.

I have a old jenn air wall oven and a old jenn air microwave mounted on top. it was a countertop model. when i removed it it was plugged into the top of the oven. would that be a 110 appliance outlet?


The Jenn Air microwave that is mounted above the oven in your unit is 110v 60Hz. The socket in the upper rear right corner of the oven is a 110v 6Hz socket and is where the microwave would be plugged in. If you are going to replace the microwave, you can plug it into that socket. If you would rather not use that socket, you will have to drill a hole in the side of the cabinet holding the over/microwave to get the power cord out.

How to remove JMC8127DD from cabinet


The wiring diagram for the microwave shows it is separate and distinct.
Usually slid-in counter top microwaves in this cubbyhole configuration have a trim piece surrounding & covering the front edges of the oven on all sides like a picture frame.
Normally you remove 4 or more screws in the trim frame, pull the frame off, then slide the oven out a little (there may be a locking tab on the cubbyhole's rails for safety) to unplug the cord, and then slide it out the rest of the way.
You can find installation instructions and other literature for this model for free download here.
You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts and accessories for it here.

How can i disassemble a jmc7000adw


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.
