Question about Kenmore 66469 / 66462 / 66464 Microwave Oven
GE Sensor JES1855 is around 2 1/2 yrs. old. While boiling pre-packaged rice in water, got a little too steamy, went to check on it. Hole melted in plastic wrap, so recovered with new piece, left door ajar to air out. Restarted and a few seconds later...CLICK. No screen, dead as door nail. Checked plug, it's fine. Gave it time to cool down, unplugged and replugged still nothing. Called Sears where purchased, they send out for large amounts of $$. GE Auth. repair even more. More to repair than to replace, such a shame. What a disposable nation we are!! Anything I can do? No one lets you talk to a repairman for helpful hints, would order part through them, if they would sugest a fix!!
There shoudl be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) inside the oven. The most common reasons for this are the magnetron thermal cutout and the fuse. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
