Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
I have check the fuse and tested the volts all the way to the smartboard it is getting 120 volts just won't light up. I am guessing I need a new smartboard. Any other ideas? This happened during a power surge but the fuse was not blown. I don't understand why the door light is not coming on is it running through the smartboard?
The door light is usually controlled by a relay on the control board, not just the door switch.

Dead appliance, power on wall outlet.
SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!
this only if you are competent.
your appliance has absolutely no functions at all, remove it from the
mains supply, remove the case and see where the mains lead goes in to
the appliance and follow the cable until you find the main fuse.
ONLY USE THE SAME TYPE AND RATING OF FUSE TO REPLACE IT.
The usual cause of this fuse failure is the door switches are contaminated or sticking. Check the door switches before putting power back on to the appliance.
Hope this helps.
