Microwave stops after 59 seconds


Check that a "favourite" setting has not been selected. The unit may think that is the time that you want to cook. Im not sure about your model but see if there is any clear or cancel buttons to clear any pre programmed selections. If not, unplug the machine for 15 minutes to reset the controller and try it again.

My JennAir went completely dead. It is probably 13 years old. Should I replace or have someone try to fix it?


Hello -

I cannot give you instruction on how to remove the kit(?) surrounding your microwave.

I can provide you with information which may help you decide if arranging for an repair technician authorized to service your JennAir microwave is the best option compared to replacing it. I refer you to the information from Angie's List:

Best wishes.

The same thing happened to ours last night. We went to add another minute of cooking time and realized the oven was dead - no clock, no display of any kind, and no more cooking!

I've verified the power outlet is OK. Ideas???

I've got a Kenmore microwave that just stopped working in the middle of a timed cooking. The model # is 721.69200890. Is there a fuse to change or something like that? Thanks, Roland


If the oven is completely dead, (no light or display) it probally is a fuse problem. It does have a 20 Amp fuse. With that being said, I would stress that a qualified service technician check it out. There are some high voltage components inside and a person who is unfamilar with high voltage components can seriously get hurt or even die if they don't take the proper precautions working with this type of appliance.

My microwave oven shuts down when set at high a high cooking number. I must wait a while before it can used again. I have a GE spacemaker


It may be that your magnetron is overheating, which will trip the magnetron's thermostat, which will interrupt power until it cools down a few minutes later.

Or it may be a defective magnetron causing electrical interference that disrupts the control circuit.

In order to help you, we need your full model number and some further information.

So please post a NEW question, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit, as well as the answers to these questions:

- How long does it cook before it shuts down?

- When it shuts down, does it go completely dead, or does it just stop with the display still lit?

- When you try to cook, do the inside light, turntable, and internal cooling fan all come on?

- Is it making any unusual noise?

- Is it louder or quieter than usual?


We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Microwave stopped working completely


Fan turned on after cooking because a thermostat got to hot and tripped turning on the fan to try to cool the unit.  The unit went completely dead when thermal fuse tripped which is located above the cavity on the left side.

Quite often this is due to a bad door switch. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure.

 

If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

 

We also have the complete service manual for this model at our site.
