Blowing breaker


In general house hold circuit breaker of the house is 15 Amps or 20 Amps.

Either you have defected (weak) circuit breaker and wiring or bad Microwave oven.

The 99.99 % house hold Microwave ovens pull less than 15 Amps. They may have internal ceramic 15A fuse or 15 Amp internal circuit breaker.

To isolate your problem:

1. Plug your Microwave oven to different areas (different electrical circuit) if the different circuit breaker still trips... your Microwave oven has a short - Most of them has a small ceramic fuse 15 amps fuse.-also check some inter lock switches at door .

2. If the Microwave oven works Ok then you may have:

2a. You may overload the existing electrical circuit, try to unplug some other appliances

2b. You may have bad electrical outlet receptacle (Replace it with the same type , - may need helps from licensed electrician)

2c. Weak or defect house hold circuit breaker. (Replace it with the same type , brand - may need helps from licensed electrician)

GE Spacemaker Microwave JVM1441 BH04 tripping circuit breaker


your power transformer for the magnetron could have a shorted primary power winding,the door safety interlock switch could be mis-adjusted,this normally blows the internal unit fuse,a shorted high voltage capacitor,or diode,a bare wire inside the unit,more than the microwave on that circuit or a weak circuit breaker in the house power panel

Microwave won't turn on. Seems like it is not getting power. I checked breaker. I am looking for a fuse. You know where one is? It is a GE Spacemaker(2 yrs old) model # JVM1440WH04


  • Make sure that the microwave is plugged into a grounded outlet. It must be a 3-prong outlet.
  • Make sure the clock is set.
  • Check to see if a programming sequence was entered. Sometimes improper programming or a program sequence such as delay start can cause the touch panel to be non-responsive. Unplug microwave or turn off house circuit breaker for 30 seconds. Plug back in, or reset circuit breaker, and try reprogramming unit.
  • Check the house circuit breaker or fuse box. If the microwave is DEAD and there is no display and nothing works- the problem could be a blown fuse or tripped breaker.

I pushed the light button on my microwave and all power went out. It is not a breaker. Could it be a fuse?


You say all power went out but it is not a breaker. What power went out? In your kitchen? house? or just the machine? Can it be that you are plugged in a circuit that is protected by a GFI?

There normally is a fuse inside an oven on the floor. Unplug the device, remove the cover. DO NOT TOUCH THE SILVER CAN IN THE BACK - LETHAL.

Check the fuse with an ohm meter or contunity checker of some type.

If you need additional assistance, please let me know.

I hope this was helpful for you

Hi cschnur,
     It seems that you might need to replace circuit board.
All the above mentioned conditions refers to a faulty circuit board. You might have blown few Ic's.
Take a voltmeter, check the continuity. If you are aware of the Ic's, replace them.
Unless, look for a tech, a used board ( On http;//www.ebay.com ) or purchase a new one.

Thanks for using Fixya.

1. Have you tested the outlet by plugging in something else and confirming that the outlet is good? If another device doesn't work in the outlet, then you have a bad fuse or breaker that powers that circuit in the house.

2. If power is OK, you probably have a bad fuse in the oven. You'll need to unplug the oven and remove the outside cover. Replace the fuse with the EXACT same rating of fuse of the original.

Please get back to me and let me know what you find.

Good luck!
