    Is it dead, meaning no
    display, no light when you open the door and no beeps when you press a
    pad on the keypad?




    Is the outlet working?



    A microwave can be dead
    for many reasons.




    It
    may be the fuse, which is usually located behind the grille, on
    the
    floor of the oven behind the control panel, between the door switches,
    or on the filter board near where the cord comes into the unit.




    If
    the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout (TCO)
    / thermal fuse on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body
    of the oven.




    If it goes dead for a
    while during or after cooking
    then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing
    the magnetron thermostat to open.




    Then when it cools, it
    closes the circuit and allows power through again.




    When
    checking TCOs or thermostats, if it has a hood fan thermostat,
    that should read
    open, as opposed to the others, which should read closed.




    So don't let that fool you.


    If the cavity thermostat
    needs to be checked or replaced you'll need to pull the oven from the
    wall.



    If
    so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have
    two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.


    You can download GE
    owner's manuals and installation instructions
    here.


    If it went dead almost
    immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted
    high-voltage capacitor.




    If it went dead several seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing
    high-voltage transformer.




    If
    it goes dead or blows the breaker (or GFI) when you plug it in or open
    or close
    the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch
    mount.




    If it's intermittent or
    random, it may be a bad
    connection, usually on the control board or a loose fuse holder, or
    even an intermittent fuse.




    If you or someone you
    know
    decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and
    disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing
    here on FixYa.



    There
    should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the
    control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is
    very
    helpful

    when troubleshooting & testing.


    At
    our Web site, we have a video
    available showing how to remove a typical
    over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.


    You can usually find
    helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full
    model number
    here.

    happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful
    rating of our answer.

My jvm 1861 oven does not power on at all. how do i disassemble the control panel to replace the fuse


At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range grille and control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

The fuse should be accessible after removing only the grille, with no need to remove the controller.

According to a similar model's service manual:

"The fuse is located on the upper duct mounted to the Noise filter.
1. Disconnect power and remove grille.
2. Replace the fuse."

You can find handy exploded views and order parts by model number
here.

It seems as if it makes a buzzing noise when the door is opened and the light does not seem as bright as usual... sounds like the noise is coming from the light area ??
