Make sure your circuit breaker in the main breaker box has not tripped, or "poped". It will be one a little out of place and a bit loose if it has tripped. Turn it off and back on to reset. If it tripps immediately, you have a short somewhere, possibly in the dishwasher, so you will need an electrician and or Appliance tec. to find and fix.

Testimonial: "Not a circuit breaker.. not many houses have a dedicated circuit to the dishwasher alone. Hoping for some unit-specific knowledge that saves me making a $$$ service call for a 2 year old dishwasher. Thank you."

No power

Look if you can safely get it apart for the fuse inside the unit and if possible test the power cord and where it connects, this is the place to begin---total dead units are usually easy to fix, follow the AC voltage from the wall or voltage source inside to the fuse etc.

ITS MOST LIKELY a problem in the power supply of the unit or something connected to it that is stopping the set from coming on.

If total dead look for a bad fuse or even damaged parts on the board.

TV Turned itself off and now will not turn back on. No sign if any power going to it. All other appliances and socket working fine.

On this model not likely to be a do it yourself repair---suspect number one is of course the power supply in the set--if total dead could be the fuse---if you are able to safely get the back off look at fuse and also at filter caps on power board that power cord goes to.

Here are what bad filter caps look like (if bad you will be able to see it).

Where is the fuse for ge spacemaker jvm1320wb-002...the unit is totally dead...nothing works

It is time to replace the microwave oven, if the fuse is open you more than likely have a more serious problem that will be costly, companies only go back a few years when it comes to supply parts

Most likely cause is the power supply board inside the set has failed. I suspect that as it is dead--could be a fuse but a fuse makes no sound when it fails--if you cannot open the set to look take it to a good shop and have it examined.

Totally Dead

If the light is on and nothing else works, suspect these two issues:

The refrigerator thermostat has failed in the open position.
The defrost timer has failed in the defrost position.
