Mmmm it's so easy,
First disconect the power, take the cover off, moslitly there would be 5 screws and two tab's on the top.
inside on the right hand side the magnetron it's a sylver box measuring about 4 in x 4 in x 5 in. It will have a plasic cover moslitly that would have to be remove first then on the magnetron there is 4 crews and one connector.
It should fall downard after.
If you have a power supply after the secondary , that may also be your problem.

Regards

Bob

SOURCE: GE microwave lights and fan do not work

If one of the surface light bulbs burnt out it may have shorted out the control board. Take the control board out and look for a burnt spot on the board. It may be able to be repaired with a drop of solder or solder in a jumper wire. Or you can purchase a new board, which may cost more than you want to put into the microwave.

SOURCE: How do I access the fuse on a JVM 1540 Microwave?

On this model, the 20A ceramic fuse is located on the filter board near where the cord comes into the unit.

But if your unit is dead (
meaning no display, no light when you open the door and no beeps when you press a pad on the keypad) then it may be a blown fuse or a bad T.C.O. (thermal cutout / thermostat) on top of the oven cavity or on the magnetron.

It may also be the bottom TCO, not to be confused with the hood TCO, which should read normally open.

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.

You can also find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases in about a week or so.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

The main fuse in the microwave oven has probably blown, usually caused by a bad door switch due to food partical buildup.

My jvm 1540 will not heat. any advice?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Microwave not heating properly is caused by a power relay going bad, cold solder joint on the board and/or magnetron (this is only if it makes a loud hum/buzz sound). Also the door hooks and the door-release button should be checked. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.



Thanks
