Question about GE JE2160 Microwave Oven
After a short cooking run with my 3year old je2160 bf03, when opened to stop cooking the unit died. After reading the standard responses here/elsewhere, I presumed one of the switches was defective and had blown the fuse. Power supply/other outlets are OK.
I opened the case, grounded the HV capacitor and removed the 20A ceramic fuse (blown - infinite resistance per ohmeter to the fuse).
I checked all three switches (alignment/latch function correct), pulled all three (look good - the upper and lower ones #1445, 1446 show full resistance when open, none when switch button pushed closed; the center switch #2010 shows no resistance when open, full resistance hen switch button pushed closed).
Now I'm stuck...

Dead appliance, power on wall outlet.
SAFETY IS PARRAMOUNT!
this only if you are competent.
your appliance has absolutely no functions at all, remove it from the
mains supply, remove the case and see where the mains lead goes in to
the appliance and follow the cable until you find the main fuse.
ONLY USE THE SAME TYPE AND RATING OF FUSE TO REPLACE IT.
The usual cause of this fuse failure is the door switches are contaminated or sticking. Check the door switches before putting power back on to the appliance.
Hope this helps.
