Mmmm it's so easy,
First disconect the power, take the cover off, moslitly there would be 5 screws and two tab's on the top.
inside on the right hand side the magnetron it's a sylver box measuring about 4 in x 4 in x 5 in. It will have a plasic cover moslitly that would have to be remove first then on the magnetron there is 4 crews and one connector.
It should fall downard after.
If you have a power supply after the secondary , that may also be your problem.

Regards

Bob

Congrats on their sending you the mag!

How did you convince them to do that? Did they make you sign a waiver?

You can locate it by looking inside the cavity for an area that is perforated.
If this area is not a panel that can be removed, replacing it may (often) require removing a few sheet metal screws along the rear edge of the unit; rarely is the housing held on with more than that.
With the screws removed, lift up on the rear edge and pull toward the back.

DO NOT LEAVE IT PLUGGED IN!

Also, because there are components that may keep a charge (capacitors) for hours, I would recommend letting it sit unplugged overnight before removing the housing.

The bulb may be either a cylindrical type such as many sewing machines use or a smaller version of a standard bulb.
Neither of which anyone ever has at home, of course.

Any of the large 'home improvement' stores should have these 'made in China' bulbs at an inflated price.

Does this unit have a turntable? If so does it turn when on?

I would start by checking all of the door switches. Once you remove the shell, you will see them all on a rail where the door latch goes. Some will be normally open, some normally closed. If they all check out, check all of your overloads and thermal fuses. They should all read closed. If they all check out as well, replace your magnatron, capacitor, and diodes.

Microwave is smoking when I use it as a convection oven


It seems to be self cleaning... burning all the oils that coats the inside from microwaving food that wasn't covered. Clean the oven well and to remove bad smells put lemon juice in a bowl and microwave.

JTP85 microwave shuts completely off with a blank readout.


Your magnetron is overheating, and its attached thermostat is doing its job to protect the magnetron by shutting off the power to the oven until it cools back down to a safe temperature.

An overheating magnetron can be due to:


  • operating oven without cover(s) in place
  • wrong magnetron installed in oven
  • an old or otherwise failing magnetron
  • cracked magnetron magnet
  • improper power line voltage (should be 110-125VAC)
  • foods low in moisture (popcorn & bacon, e.g. - add 1/2 cup of water in rear oven when cooking such foods)
  • failed or inoperable cooling fan or hood vent exhaust fan
  • deteriorating foam weatherstripping seals in air ducts or on outside cover
  • blocked air vents (dust, animal nest debris, insufficient free air space behind & around oven, etc.)
  • clogged or greasy charcoal filter or grease filter
  • blocked duct in hood vent exhaust

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, and it is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

dee77f7.jpgAt our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Accessing some parts may require you to pull the oven from the wall and remove the cover.

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