Question about GE JVM1190 Microwave Oven
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.

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
