Our Kenwood microwave keep blowing the 8A fuse as soon as we press start button

We have a Kenwood Microwave Model No, KEN GJ/SS25. when I pressed start it tripped the circuit breaker for the downstairs and after that it stopped working completely. Not sure what's gone wrong, it was very expensive when we bought and I wonder if someone could help us to find out what the problem is. Maybe it's just a fuse somewhere (I checked the socket and it was fine) but could be something blown off inside?! Kind regards Wadee

The turntable system consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

For parts and service, you should contact Kenwood at the number in the owner's manual.

Microwave keeps blowing fuse


There are three possibilities, a bad magnetron, high voltage capacitor, and diode. In rare cases the high voltage transformer will be an issue but unlikely, if the microwave oven is more than 5 years old consideration should be given in replacement.

Where can I get a manual for a kenwood microwave GJ ss25?


Most major manufacturers supply manuals online so if you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, you may be pleasantly surprised as usually, if available, one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, Dealer Network for spare part supplies as required.

The information is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.

How do i change the light bulb on a Kenwood Ken GJ/SS25 microwave


The cover has to come off the microwave to access the bulb. There are several screws around the back and sides. Remove these and the cover should lift off, revealing the bulb. For your own safety, make sure that the microwave has been unplugged from the outlet for several hours before attempting this repair.

Start button


I have a related problem, my Siemens microwave/oven as soon as I press the start button brings down the fuse. I put up the fuse again, the clock is working, the light inside as well, but as soon as I set the microwave on and press the start button, it brings the fuse down again. Is this a problem with the siemens microwave or with my electrical installation?

BULB NOT WORKING ON MY KENWOOD GRILL/MICROWAVE GJ/SS25


First unplug microwave. Check to see if there is a cover in front of the bulb that can be removed with a screwdriver normally philips. If not, you must remove the entire top cover for access to the bulb housing.You will have to remove side screws if any, and just the rear screws that hold the top cover on, remember you may find that some if not all may be torc screws.In this case you will need the correct tool.Usually a T20 tamper driver.After you remove the top cover you can find where the bulb cover is and replace the bulb.CAUTION:ALWAYS BE CAREFUL TO KEEP HANDS AWAY FORM THE HIGH VOLTAGE SECTION. Sometimes the high voltage capacitor will not discharge on its own and will retain voltage plugged in or not.
