Question about GE Profile Spacemaker Over-the-Range Microwave

1 Answer

Microwave was working fine but just stopped this morning. Is there a way that I can replace the high voltage fuse? Is it located in the panel inside the microwave?

    Model # JVM2070WH001 Lost all power. Stopped working entirely.
    Changed both 20a ceramic fuses. Still no power. Verified the electrical outlet was working. Out of warranty of course!

You have not mentioned the make and model. Any way you can check the AC fuse on the power board inside the oven. If it is blown off you can replace it by a similar one, around 10amps fuse.

LG LMV1813ST MIRCOWAVE STOPPED WORKING?


The fuse can be replaced, but the underlying issue should still be investigated and resolved. Otherwise the new fuse will blow also.
If the microwave is not working the thermal fuse may have blown.
When a microwave stops working the problem is usually the line fuse or within the high voltage circuit; either the high voltage capacitor, diode, transformer or magnetron.

Microwave stopped working. No power


please follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Line Fuse


Every microwave oven has a line fuse. This fuse is designed to blow if too much current is drawn through the microwave circuitry. The fuse can be replaced, but the underlying issue should still be investigated and resolved. Otherwise the new fuse will blow also.
Main Control Board


If the microwave is not working the main control board may be defective. This is not common. When a microwave stops working the problem is usually the line fuse or within the high voltage circuit; either the high voltage capacitor, diode, transformer or magnetron.


Thermal Fuse


If the microwave is not working the thermal fuse may have blown. It can be tested for continuity. Watch our fuse testing video for more information.
Thermoprotector


If the microwave is not working the thermoprotector may have tripped. This is a safety device to prevent the microwave from overheating. It can be tested for continuity to see if it's blown.1_24_2013_4_57_51_pm.gif

My microwave oven stopped working. No lights, clocks etc. I have checked the outlet and it is fine, power available. Is there a fuse somewhere inside the microwave?


There is a main fuse in the microwave oven, "white body with silver ends" located near the high voltage capacitor. Unplug unit take top off and allow 30 seconds to dis-charge. Keep in mind the door switch becomes defective and often blows the fuse.

Have g e over range microwave jvm231bv001 1995 year made. worked fine but in middle of cooking it just made a odd sound and completely stopped...no fan, light or any power...please advise possible...


Yes! there is a main fuse, it is located under the keypad and in towards where the high voltage capacitor is "silver and rectangular in shape" but make sure oven is unplugged and high voltage capacitor is dis-charged because there are dangerous high voltages in that area. But I think you have a secondary problem in the oven, there might be a defective door switch or possibly the high voltage capacitor has shorted.

Replace fuse on ge microwave oven model no. jvm230


remove all outer screws, take off cover, has fuse panel inside, probably ceramic style fuse ?

My microwave starts however food does not heat up.


Micro wave as the name suggests produces heat when the micro waves aimed at an object causes the water molecules inside the object to vibrate hence producing heat.The gadget responsible is the magnetron. If your magnetron is not receiving ht voltage or receiving but faulty, then your micro wave wont work please take precaution when opening micro wave due to high voltage caps that remain charged sometimes even when it is off.check the high voltage fuse/ diode and capacitor if they are fine and the step up trans former o.k then the only option is to replace the magnetron

First the microwave clock etc worked but the fan and table and microwave didn't work now nothing works anymore i checked the fuses they are ok the doorswitches work also ok. what is the next step to do


Probably the failure of a high-amperage fuse inside the unit. The electronics are generally separately fused so one section can fail leaving the other functioning.
If there is no external fuseholder on the back panel, it will be necessary to remove the housing to access the innards.
The fuse that has blown may have blown because of metal fatigue but the cause could also be more serious, namely the high voltage diode (or diode bridge) that converts high voltage AC into the DC required for the magnetron or even the magnetron itself may have developed an internal short.
If you locate the fuse, buy two of them and if the first replacement fails again, then the diode(s) or magnetron has failed and with the cost of service plus parts markup, you will be better off replacing the whole unit.

GE JE1860 Microwave is not heating


Test the high voltage capacitor,the rectifier diode.or the magnetron. If all this are fine, test the control board.

The diode and capacitors can br tested. The capacitor must be alloweddischarge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, even ifpower is off. Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their twocontacts.
Before replacing the magnetron test also the control board.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.



All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.

Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.

Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts. (here in UK).

Danby 1000 Watt Microwave is completely dead. Just stopped working right after heating up a dinner.


you may have just blown a fuse inside the microwave or the transformer inside has now failed and will need replacing but it will need to be looked at to see what exactly happened
