Question about GE JVM1190 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

GE Spacemaker 2.0 Microwave just died!

Hi, I'm trying to get a diagnosis of a problem we're having with our microwave. It popped the circuit breaker on the main panel. We reset the breaker, but the microwave did not come back on. No lights, or power. I checke the receptacle and it was live. I removed both fuses (main and HV) from the microwave and tested them with a multimeter for resistance. They seem fine, multimeter indicates 0 ohms of resistance. If fuse was bad it would indicate an "OL - open line". Can anyone please help me?

If you're getting power at the outlet, the most common problems causing a "dead" condition are a bad thermostat (or thermal cutout / thermal fuse) on or near the magnetron, a blown internal fuse, or a problem on the control circuit board. I would suspect the thermal cutout / thermal fuse in this case. You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 If it seems to be a problem on your control board, we repair these for $39.95 nationwide in most cases. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk If you need more help, feel free to follow up here, but please include your model number (e.g. JVM1190, etc.) I appreciate your thoughtful rating of my answer.

How do I know if my frigidaire microwave oven is done.


Hey lizanne belmonte, thank you for your inquiry!
From what you have described your Frigidaire microwave is not allowing you to operate it. I would recommend performing a reset and you can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker for ten minutes by flipping the household circuit breaker. If that does not help to resolve your issue I would suggest having a professional come out to provide a proper diagnosis. Best of luck! -Matt

Tripping circuit breaker


That unit shows that it takes 15 or 20 AMPS to run. What is the breaker amperage on the circuit where it is plugged in? Is the breaker a GFCI? You can tell by looking for the two buttons on the circuit breaker or the outlet.

I was just using the microwave and it died on me. No power to the unit that I can tell.


Check the circuit breaker. If it's pugged into GFCI type outlet or an outlet that's run from one, make sure the breaker didn't trip there.

GE Spacemaker Microwave JVM1441 BH04 tripping circuit breaker


your power transformer for the magnetron could have a shorted primary power winding,the door safety interlock switch could be mis-adjusted,this normally blows the internal unit fuse,a shorted high voltage capacitor,or diode,a bare wire inside the unit,more than the microwave on that circuit or a weak circuit breaker in the house power panel
