I have a GE JTP85. The front panel is dark and both the oven and microwave do not work. Is there a fuse that could be blown? If so where is that fuse located?


Every microwave has a fuse. It's either located behind the control panel (over the range units) or near where the power cord enters the cabinet.

GE microwave oven model#JVM1441BH04 when you close door on switch activates and oven comes on. Only goes off when door is opened.


HELLO.

the problem your are experiencing with your microwave oven is a failed interlock switch.
Be careful when closing your microwave door. Slamming the door too hard is one of the main reasons that the interlock switch is damaged.

Slamming the microwave door shut can easily blow the microwave fuse, but they can also blow due to problems with the interlock switches.
A microwave oven will not function until the fuse is replaced.

Instruction on how to replace fuse on microwave.

1. Unplug the microwave from the electrical outlet to prevent electrocution. Place the microwave in a well-lit area to be able to locate the fuse.

2. Use a screwdriver to remove the outer cabinet of the microwave, and follow the power cord to the fuse. The fuse is located 2 to 3 inches within the microwave and is attached to the power board.

3. Observe the fuse to determine if it is blown. Blown glass fuses will produce burn marks on nearby surfaces, or the internal fuse wire will be black and melted, while ceramic fuses show no outward appearance of being blown.

4. Determine if a ceramic fuse is blown by testing it with an ohmmeter. If the ohmmeter reads zero ohms, your fuse is not blown. Other readings on the ohmmeter show that your fuse is blown.

5. Replace the blown fuse by popping it out of its holder, and snapping a new fuse in its place. Tighten the fuse clips by squeezing them together with your fingers.

6. Replace the outer cabinet of the microwave, and plug the microwave back into the electrical outlet. Test the microwave to see if it's working properly.

thanks.

There seems to be no power. No clock. no nothing. It was working fine and then jut stopped. Circuit is not tripped. I tried unplugging and plugging again.


most likely you will have to remove the louvers or trim above the cooking cavity to get to the fuse, look for screws holding the trim/louvers on, if no screws are apparent, the piece may slide to the left or right and pop off.

Unplug your microwave. Although it might seem like no electrical current could possibly be running through your appliance, it could still have stored electrical current somewhere in the system. Be safe rather than sorry and unplug it before you begin.

    Find the wiring diagram for your model of GE microwave. You can contact GE directly to get this if you cannot locate your owner's manual. Note the fuse locations and get a screwdriver. Some GE fuses are located under the louvers, while others are located in the door.

  • 3

    Open up the microwave and locate the blown fuse. Sometimes you cannot determine a blown fuse by visual inspection so check it with a multimeter for continuity across the terminals.

  • 4

    Replace the blown fuse. Go to your local hardware store and pick up a matching fuse. Make sure you check the model numbers of the fuse as well to be sure you get the right component. Install the new fuse and put everything back together.

  • 5

    Check the continuity of the circuit if you continue to have power problems. If you have a problem with continuity in the circuit, then you may have a bigger problem than just a blown fuse. Sometimes a power surge will fry a GE microwave's circuit board, which you will need to replace.

    GE model JE2160BF03 no power. Blown fuse.


    They are put out when something metal is put inside and cooked for a few min. They are also put out with power surge. It protects your mag tube. Plus they just go bad sometimes. Could be a number of reasons but these are the most common.

    No power. outlets is fine. please help. thanx GE Spacemaker® 1.7 Cu. Ft. Over-the-Range Microwave Oven Model # JVM1740DMCC


    This will occur if the inverter has experienced a surge or, if the cut off fuse has blown. you can check the cut-off fuse by removing the cover. it is located near the magnetron tube. replace it if it is blown. if the fuse is ok, this will confirm inverter failure. replace the inverter in this case.

It is possible that the In-line fuse has blown as well. you can access this fuse by removing the cover. the fuse is locate din the inverter sector, in line with the power cord. If this fuse is not blown, replace the inverter assembly.
