First check the breaker - then check that you are not on a GFI protected line.

Remove the cover. Somehwere probably on the right hand side near where the power cord comes in should be a fuse.

This should answer your question. I dont think this is your problem, however. The fuse Im talking about protects the entire device. You have a burned out light and a fan that doesn't work.

With the cover off, it should be easy to find the light and inspect, check and replace it if necessary. You can inspect the fan at the same time and maybe discover why it isnt running if that is indeed the case.

I hope this helps you

Microwave was run empty and now it won't run. Display works but no fan or microwave. What to do?


The magnetron does not fair well when running empty, the thermal fuse usually kicks in if a metal object was put in by mistake, but should be checked along with the door switches.

Do not heat any longer, lights, clock and fan work


In situtions such as these it can be considered that the Magnatron has passed on. Co0t of repair often exceeds the value of replacement.
No fuse controls the magnatron separately from the rest of the unit so deem it dead

With the availability of good second hand models on the market via pawn shops like Cash Converters etc one can find a very good unit with 30 day warranty for $50-100 and its already been checked over for defects

Model is GE JVM1430BD002. Microwave works but range fan and lights do not. Unit "popped" when fan was turned on one time and hasn't worked since. Is there a fuse or breaker for the range hood functions?


Yes - there is an internal "special" in-line fuse. Most likely it is the fan that has caused it. Clean the fan with switch-cleaner spray and make sure it is smooth running. Replace special fuse with identical version.
Check lights before operation.
Replace all covers before test.

The circuit breaker to the micro wave was tripped and when reset the microwave did not work it just hums also the lights and fan does not work. What's up with that?


the hi voltage transformer is still operating, but the rest is dead, you could remove outer cover and see if there are 2 fuses, most only have 1 fuse, sounds like new microwave time

Microwave comes on but does not heat


This means the magnetron is either bad, is not receiving the high voltage it needs (failed diode) and/or the fuse is blown.
You can trouble shoot this yourself with the help of a cheap digital multimeter and a reading of the Chinglish instructions that come with it.
Be advised though; if the magnetron and the diode are OK you can encounter ~ 700 volts on a charged capacitor so let the unit rest unplugged overnight if you intend to poke around in it.

Lights fan and carosel do not work


tricky one. common denominator to all parts not working could be open neutral track at back of the circuit board, or possibly a relay not switching correctly.Need testing equiptment for that.

GE microwave lights and fan do not work


If one of the surface light bulbs burnt out it may have shorted out the control board. Take the control board out and look for a burnt spot on the board. It may be able to be repaired with a drop of solder or solder in a jumper wire. Or you can purchase a new board, which may cost more than you want to put into the microwave.

Plate won/t rotate no reheating


PLease open the housing of turn table motor at bottom of the oven and check for the AC input voltages on motor terminals as specified on sticker on motor. for no heating please check fuse between high voltage transformer and high voltage capacitor. Also check high voltage Diode and Magnetron.Please please don't try to measure voltage on terminals of magnetron.
