SOURCE: Microwave Door Switch Problem?

That model number has too many digits after the JVM. Could it be JVM1339BW02 or JVM1339BW002?

If one is bad, it's probably the bottom switch, whose wiring goes back to the power relay, thermostat, or fuse, depending on eact model.

The switch with thin wires going to a ltitle connector on the board is the door sense switch. That's not likely your culprit.

I usually recommend you replace them all while you're at it.

It sounds like it may actually be a loose or misaligned door or door switch mount.

GE models have a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel. Handy in troubleshooting.

The capacitor and diode will not cause the problem you describe. You will not be able to measure the diode with an ohmmeter, the forward breakdown is about 5-6Vdc. The normal failure mode for the capacitor is a short which will blow the fuse.
If any high voltage components go bad, the microwave will operate normally just not heat.
You should focus on the door interlock switches and safety thermostats, especially the cavity thermostat located somewhere on the top of the cavity.

To make a high voltage diode tester, wire up a 9V battery, LED and a 220 ohm resistor. Hooked up one way the LED will light reverse the connection the LED will not light.

If you need further assistance, let me know

SOURCE: Hi. I pressed the 'quickstart'

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

It may be a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

Check the door latch switch inside the oven. The 4 switches where the door hooks latch on to when the door is closed has to engage with the door hooks to tell the oven that the door is closed. loosen the 2 phillip screws that holds the switch assembly and slide it to adj. and ensure that the switches close when the door is closed.
Sometimes the switches go bad and cannot make contact and must be replaced. If you see that the connectors on the switch is discolored or overheated replace the switch, it is bad.

Whirlpool microwave fuse has blown multiple times


It depends on which fuse and when it blows. Wish you had mentioned that.

But usually it's a defective door switch or door switch mount.

If the fuse blows at random times while it's cooking, it may just be a loose fuse holder. Those have to be replaced due to metal fatigue, not just squeezed tight with pliers.

If it blows as soon as you hit "Start" to begin cooking, you have a shorting high voltage capacitor.

If it blows when you open or close the door, you have a loose or defective door switch or latch.

Sharps microwave


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or occasionally a problem on the control panel.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

You can probably find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number (R-520JKF) here at the Sears parts site.

The best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics.
