First if it is brand new it has a warranty---call Hotpoint customer service or even take it back where purchased for exchange or repair.

A mains surge may have taken out the fuse. To find the fuse, remove it from the mains, remove the outer cover and follow where the power cable enters the case. There will be a PCBoard with a fuse on it.
Always replace the fuse with one of exactly the same type and value!

Won't heat any foods.


you have a problem with your magnetron tube, and when the magnetron tube goes bad, the diode almost always goes out with it. you should be able to order a replacement tube from your manufacturers website, if you cant let me know and ill try to help you more.

here are the steps to replace the magnetron tube, if you want to do it yourself that is. if you have a professional do it, it can be pretty costly.
  1. Unplug Microwave at least few hours before
  2. Remove Microwave from above oven range by somebody holding Microwave from ground unscrew the screws from cabinet
  3. Remove top cover of Microwave
  4. Make sure to keep screws correctly in a place you remember what goes where
  5. Make sure capacitor is discharged, GE manual inside Microwave says capacitor will discharge within 30 seconds once it is off. As a precaution check the voltage in capacitor to make sure there is no electricity
  6. Remove other panels around magnetron part
  7. You need to remove lot of connecting wires, should be careful to note down what goes where
  8. If possible take digital photos to refer back when you put everything back together
  9. You may need to remove transformer to easily remove and replace Magnetron. If you can't remove Magnetron easily then remove bottom panel of the Microwave and remove transformer
  10. Now it should be easy to remove magnetron
  11. Replace new magnetron and screw it. We had to put one outside part from old magnetron to new one because new one was missing that. Check to make sure both old and new one are exactly the same
  12. Make sure put all wires properly back
  13. Now put transformer back and screw it
  14. Put capacitor panel in place and screw it
  15. This might be a good time to test the Microwave to make sure it works fine now
  16. Now cover the top panels and start to screw everything
  17. Once everything assembled put the Microwave back above range put screws from top

I have a GE Spacemaker and it is about 9 yrs. old. Sometines it heats; other times it doesn't. I change settings and sometimes that works. Is this something that can be repaired or is this a sign I need...


When the microwave is not heating, that means the magnetron is not working. This is what provides the heat to the microwave. I do believe the magnetron has a 10 year warranty.

If you wish to replace it, here is how:

  1. Unplug Microwave at least few hours before
  2. Remove Microwave from above oven range by somebody holding Microwave from ground unscrew the screws from cabinet
  3. Remove top cover of Microwave
  4. Make sure to keep screws correctly in a place you remember what goes where
  5. Make sure capacitor is discharged, GE manual inside Microwave says capacitor will discharge within 30 seconds once it is off. As a precaution check the voltage in capacitor to make sure there is no electricity
  6. Remove other panels around magnetron part
  7. You need to remove lot of connecting wires, should be careful to note down what goes where
  8. If possible take digital photos to refer back when you put everything back together
  9. You may need to remove transformer to easily remove and replace Magnetron. If you can't remove Magnetron easily then remove bottom panel of the Microwave and remove transformer
  10. Now it should be easy to remove magnetron
  11. Replace new magnetron and screw it. We had to put one outside part from old magnetron to new one because new one was missing that. Check to make sure both old and new one are exactly the same

  16. Now cover the top panels and start to screw everything
  17. Once everything assembled put the Microwave back above range put screws from top

How do I remove my Hotpoint microwave RVM 44004? Two bolts visible from the cabinet down into the microwave. Removed them with zero result. No other fasteners visible in top or side cabinets.


It is much easier for two people to remove the microhood. If attempting alone, please move the range out so you can get under the micro to support the weight. If the range stays in place, protect the top from damage.
1. make a landing site to the side to protect the floor when putting the micro down after removal.
2. Disconnect the power cord in the cabinet above.
3. loosen the two screws in the bottom front corners of the cabinet above. When removed the front of the micro will drop, be ready for the weight. Busy times, tools in hands microwave coming down in front.
4. tilt the front down. pull the cord out of the upper cabinet.
5. with micro still tilted down in front, lift the back of the unit upward to free it from the wall plate.
6. remove the fasteners in the wall plate and remove.
Congrats, begin celebration.

I have an old Jenn Air microwave above the range I need to remove


Hi there,

If you only need to remove the oven from the housing, there will be (should be!) 2 small screws at each side of the trim, 2 top and 2 bottom. Remove these and the oven should slide straight out. These screws will be into the side panels of the housing, but there may only be two fitted! Depending what you are intending to do next, you may have to disconnect the supply cable and/or dismantle the oven to replace parts. You will need two people to lower it to the floor, have a stool or similar handy in case the cable length is too short to allow this.

Good Luck
Thanks

1985 GE Microwave Spacesaver Uninstall


A possible solution:
I was facing the same problem with my (1998?) GE JVM48006. In this models case, the microwave was housed in a support cabinet that was fastened to the wall behind. First, I removed the phillips head screws behind the louvered vent above the microwave. Then, I removed the screws of the slanted bottom panel that give access to servicing the stove top lights (underneath the unit) which were integrated into the support cabinet (separate from the microwave itself). On the right side was an electrical wire harness hidden behind a cover that had to be unplugged (similar to a car wiring harness). Then, I removed (4) 5.1/2 inch hex head bolts that secured the unit through the cabinet above. Now I was able to slide the microwave out towards the front (with some rocking back and forth). All that was left then was to remove the support housing (fastened to the back wall).

Panasonic NN-S254 additional installation instructions


I just removed mine. There should be two long screws coming down from above into the unit. Remove them completely and then lift the microwave up towards the cabinet and slide forward. Sometimes some jiggling will help.
Leave the hanger assembly on the wall. It has the two prongs that go into the "insert" slots
