Question about Microwave Ovens
After very small fire in oven now nothing works , did not have to use water or fire extinguisher, fire went out when oxygen was depleted,would require very little clean up but not even clock works ,like it is not getting power,yet other appliances will work in this outlet, Thanks
I assume that model is JVM1653WH05?
The fire probably opened the internal flame senor, also known as the oven cavity thermal cutout (TCO) located on top of the cavity.
The TCO part number is WB27X10195 and it's available here.
There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
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 find helpful exploded view diagrams here.
Accessing the cavity TCO will require you to remove 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.
