So it's dead? (No display, no inside lights, no beeps?)

A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the thermostat to open. When it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

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

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

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

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

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

The fuse holder may be loose.

With the microwave unplugged, if you can easily turn the fuse with your thumb & forefinger while it's in the holder, it has overheated and fatigued and should be replaced.

Simply squeezing its terminals together with pliers is not really a good solution.

When a connection is loose, heat results, which eventually melts the fuse internally.

This is usually evidenced by a very tiny ball of solder at the point where the end cap meets the body of the fuse.

You can use a generic holder - it's a lot cheaper than ordering one. The connectors should be 1/4" tabs and it should be rated at 20 amps or better.

You should be able to get one from a home center or local appliance parts store.

If it's not loose, then it may be a failing magnetron or high voltage transformer pulling too much current.

SOURCE: Jenn-Air Microwave - no power

Had the same problem. Removed the unit (snapping off the upper and lower trim rings was a chore but they do snap off) and tested the power. Plug behind the unit was good. Pulled the cover and checked the thermal fuse with ohm meter. No good. Replaced fuse, microwave would run for a second, then light goes dim and it buzzes, then it blew the fuse. Per above suspected Capacitor. Changed that, and we are back up and running. Thanks!!

Hello friend, thank you for your post!
Based off the information you have provided you would like to know the cubic size for your Frigidaire microwave, FMT148GP. The cubic footage of this particular model is 1.4 cubic feet. Hopefully this information is helpful to you. -Matt

I'm trying to convert a over the range frigidaire microwave that is 30" by 15.5" by 15" into cubic feet.


generally speaking you buy and OTR microwave by width, i.e., 30" wide is the standard width of all most all OTR . so any 30' wide microwave will fit. when talking about cubic feet, they usually are talking about the interior capacity of the microwave. but if you really want to know cubic feet of above dimensions, then multiply all three together and divide by 1728. (4.036 cuft)

I need to replace my over the range GE microwave Model # JVM1330WW002 and don't know what size/capacity it is?


Get cubic foot size by multiplying height x width x depth.
Divide that by 1728. If oven is 12 x 12 x 12 then it's exactly 1 cubic ft.
If 6 x 6 x 6 then it's 1/2 cubic ft or. 50 cu ft

I need to replace microwave and don't know what size in cubic feet?


Multiply interior's height x width x depth. Ex: lets say 10 inches x 12 inches x 8 inches = 10 x 12 = 120 x 8 = 960. Divide 960 by 1728 (12 x 12 x 12) =. 56 cubic ft( point 56) just a tad more then half cubic ft.

Need New Microwave


Is the interior flaking the only problem with it?

It can be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly, then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

Otherwise, if you want to replace it, I would suggest contacting Jenn-Air Customer Care here and telling them your model number.

They can probably give you the model number of a new "drop-in" replacement.
