    Have you tried repairing it with two-part epoxy such as JB Weld?

Same thing happened to me. I couldn't find a replacement part, but I was able to make a fairly easy functional repair. If you take off the microwave cover, you can reach the back side of the control panel where the door release button is located. With a screwdriver or your finger, you press down on the top attachment tab (it's the swivel point that holds the button in place) with just enough pressure to remove the button. You'll have to do something similar to remove the other half of the broken button. If the two pieces of the button fit neatly together, then you can epoxy a piece of flat metal or rigid plastic to the back side of the button in order to join the two halves. Be sure to clamp the two halves of the button tightly together while the adhesive sets to get a tight fit and minimize the crack line. Let it cure, then replace in the microwave. It's not cosmetically perfect because there is still a hairline crack in the button, but it's not that visible and the button works well. I can't say yet how long this repair will hold up yet. I suppose that will depend on the quality of the bond you achieve when repairing the button. Good luck.

So it's dead? (No display, no inside lights, no beeps?)

A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the thermostat to open. When it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

If it's random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or fuse holder.

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

If it goes dead or blows the breaker when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

If it's intermittent or random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or a loose fuse holder, or even an intermittent fuse.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.

This is usually a defective or loose bottom door switch or that switch's mount is loose, misaligned or broken.
It's usually caused by opening the door while it's cooking instead of hitting "stop" first) or slamming the door or both.

Jenn-Air Microwave vent grill opens and closes


I have this same problem occasionally. Pull the vent grill open and look for a white cam that rotates when the microwave is on. To the right of that cam, there are two gray switches. The bottom switch should have a red tab that pops out. When the vent grill opens and closes continuously, the red tab is stuck in. Take a flat screwdriver or tooth pick and push gently in on the red tab to release it. It must get stuck due to grease or dirt accumulation. Good luck.

The model M437 is not listed, but the M438 is, and it should be similar enough to guide you. Just don't count on the part numbers being the same.
