I have a G E over the under the counter microwave the power cord fuse is 20 amp I replaced it pluged in the microwave front lights up I then put something in oven turned on fuse blows ASAP what should

If you're trying to say that the fuse blows as soon as you press the "start" pad to begin cooking, then you have as shorting high voltage capacitor.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Does the ge spacesaver xl1400 microwave have to mounted or can it just sit on a counter?

Theoretically JVM1400-series microwaves (XL1400 is a meaningless number they put on the ovens) can be used on a counter top, but it's really not safe because it has no feet, and it may slide and fall off the counter.

Also, it will probably not set level on a counter.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

If you need mounting hardware or other parts, you can get them by by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

My maytag over the oven microwave just died;

most likely the power supply in the microwave is gone. the microwave die probably it is over the oven. heat from the stove cause the microwave to heat up and cold off more than it is on the counter.
counter microwave has fan and air slot in the rear. it keep the motor and microwave cool, and there nothing else to keep it hot. but the over the oven, the only ventalation is from the top. and with the added heat from the stove top and oven.

Neff Combined oven and microwave

If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (and the owner's manual doesn't address it) some disassembly may be required.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

If it's an over the range type, remove the vent grille across the top and see if bulbs can be accessed there. There may be a panel on the bottom covering the light(s), instead.

If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover. If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

Once it's out of the wall, the outer cover (wrapper) will need to be removed, just as you'll need to do on a counter top model.

On a counter top model, be sure it's unplugged, but otherwise ignore the instructions above this paragraph.

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special driver (such as a T20H type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

Partial venting

Are you running the vent fan whenever you cook on the stove top? You should.

And you should run it on high if you're having steam problems.

Otherwise, you'll need to do something like use a small counter top fan to help circulate the air better.

Please let us know if we can help further.

It sounds like a probemI with the inverter.

Due to the lethal voltages used and produced, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.

I would recommend that you contact your nearest Panasonic-authorized servicer. You can find one here:
