Possible that the display unit or the main processor unit is faulty; It is possible that insects could have nested within and produced accumulation of dirt within the circuits to dampen and short the circuit. Remove front panel and clean , use dryer to warm. If the fault persists it can be due to faulty or weak LCD.

From the service manual:

The top full-width grille is removable for service to some components, such as: humidity sensor, oven light, door removal, flame sensor, vent motor capacitor, fuse, control panel, and stirrer motor (some models).

Grille Removal

1. Disconnect power to oven.
2. Remove screws located in front on top of microwave securing grille.
3. Pull outward on the top portion of the grille releasing the tabs.
4. Reassemble in reverse order.

The oven lamp part original number is 4713−001165 but you can get it locally (generics) at hardware stores, appliance parts stores, etc. It's a common 20 watt halogen bulb.

SOURCE: Micro Wave shuts down

If it stops after 22 seconds, that means the controller has detected a problem, usually a problem with the inverter or a bad magnetron.

Due to the lethal voltages used and produced, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.

SOURCE: How many micro wave ovens will a 20 amp circuit support?

Please stick with me to the end ... some examples are for example only. There is no 1000 watt circuit per'ci.

This will not be possible overload, this is an accident waiting to jump on you, my friend

Install dedicated circuits for these ovens, my friend. It will cost you a little but will be better than having dissatisfied guests or talking to the zoning board or boarding house authority or (gasp) the fire inspector after the fire.

If you don't do this, when the breakers start flipping off, tenants will run extension cords to outlets that have power. A whole different and worse, problem!

Rule of thumb, lighting circuits should be designed to operate at 80%, for example, if you have 800 watts of lights on a 1000 watt circuit, you are at the max.

So, there is a possibility that your circuit for lights is already near max. Adding ovens is trouble. Don't forget the iPOds and cell phone chargers as well as lap top chargers, walkman chargers (older students), little TV's, DVD players, clock radio's, electric shavers, curling irons, steamers, popcorn makers, lava lamps and occasional electric heaters that will be snuck into the room.

What is a 1000 watt circuit ... good question. Ohms law comes into play here.

Volts X Amps = Watts
120 volts X 8.333 amps = 500 watts (a smoothie blender) 300 watts (slow cooker) 200 watts (hand mixer) = 1000 watts.


A 15 amp circuit will protect #14 wire and can carry about 1800 watts (a toaster (1500 watts), for example).

A 20 amp circuit will protect #12 wire and can carry about 2400 watts (i am using a big paint brush here. these numbers are pretty close but not exact and I am not a licensed electrician.)

When I wire, I aim lots lower, preferring to OVER build than to under build.

10 amp circuits are rare in modern homes. In general practice, if the need was to be protected at 10 amps, the wire used in the circuit would be #14 and it would be protected by the breaker at 10 amps. In this case, it is the device plugged into this 10 amp circuit that needs protection rather than the #14 wire (which would be technically oversized)

Another consideration for you is where is the water? If you have an outlet that is 5 feet from a water source (bath - kitchen - etc) it must be protected by a GFIC

A 30 amp circut will protect #10 wire --- but this is not a normal household circuit.

Maybe the best option is for you to have your electrician install a sub panel in the vicinity of use and run several 20 amp circuits from that location to the various rooms.

The answer to your question "How many (1150 watt)micro wave ovens will a 20 (amp circuit handle)" is TWO with nothing else on the line. The National Code requires dedicated circuits for micro wave ovens, BTW. A commercial application may have a different (more stringent) standard in your town.

Microwave display light is very dim model JMV8208BCB


The display is growing weak. It cannot be replaced separately as it is part of the control board. Sometimes removing the control board and cleaning the display and the inside of the cover will help some if it has a smokey appearance. However this is best left to a professional.

Not working i see a code (se)


SE error means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

On some models, you can replace just the membrane keypad, which is very inexpensive, but difficult.

On other models, you can replace the plastic control panel frame, which comes with a new keypad already installed.

If I knew your full model number, I could give you the part numbers, prices, and links you need.

Feel free to contact me directly (and include your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more free information & help.

Need help in installing the back bracket on the wall for my jmv8208bas


If you do not have the original template you can hold the back plat up on the wall and mark the screw holes. Try to get at least 3 on studs. It will have to be down from the cabinet a little to allow for the micro to swing up into place.
