Question about GE JVM1650 1000 Watts Microwave Oven
My Microwave lost all power at once. When it happened, there was water boiling on the stove beneath, and the automatic fan on the microwave was blowing at the time. I checked the outlet, and it works fine.
If the internal 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 or veen on the floor of the oven chassis.
Hopefully the vent fan was on strong enough to keep the steam out the of controls. That steam could scramble or damage the circuit board or keypad.
You should unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, then try again.
