Hello there:
i think that you are going to have to remove the outer cover.
Do this by unplugging the maching and on the back of the unit you will see the screws that hold on the cover from the back remove theese screws
now at the bottom of the machine there is a few more screws that need to come off once they are removed the outer shell will slide off
it may take a little of pressure or a good flattip screwdriver to get it started ok
now once the cover is off look towards the front and you will see the bulb. you should see a the fuse that is on a board that probably has blown and is in need of replacement. now just replace the fuse and you can test without the cover being on if it works great..
If not that board that the fuse was on might be bad and
needs replacement ok hope that this really helps you out ok
best regards michael

My GE model JVM1790SK Microwave randomly died yesterday. I had just finished cooking something, started it again, and while the timer started counting, the over did not start. Any idea what this cou


Had you noticed that it was getting weaker? Taking longer to heat a cup of water/coffee? If so then the magnatron was getting weak and gave up the ghost. They are expensive, probably cheaper to get another oven. the other likely failure component is the capacitor. Careful they contain power even when unplugged. Caps are not that $$. good luck

Microwave will not heat


The problem is the magnetron, "heart of the microwave oven" or the inverter board if 7 years old or less.

I have a Salton micorwave oven (MW-2027P). The timer works but the cook setting will not start. There is also no light on the inside when I open the door.


I had this exact same problem with my salton microwave! Even tried taking it back to the store, but with no reciept there was little they could do. Anyways try jiggling the clasps on the side of the the door, the ones that connect it to the microwave. Mind you don't jiggle too hard. Now firmly close the door, you should hear a distinct click. Now try it! The light only works when the microwave is on. The microwave won't work unless the door is closed properly and my problem was the claps were stuck! I hope this helps.

Is the unit heating the food? If not you may have a fubar magnetron tube. But it is fused so you might want to check the internal fuse to make sure it is not open.

It just stopped heating yesterday but the light


you say it has aloud hum to it? And everything works but no heat.Im going to give you a list of things it could be and you'll have to take microwave apart to do the work. Beforre you start get some small trays or pill bottles to put screws in. Make sure when you take a screw out you know where it goes back because all the screws may not be same length. First, You may have a blown fuse in the HV transformer primary circuit, The HV transformer is the largest thing you'll see when you take the cabinet of the frame.Second,bad connections for the magnetron filament the magnetron will have what looks like fins or louvers around it.look for bad wire connections. Third, could be a faulty thermal protector or fuse, More than likely its either going to be the HV transformer or the magnetron thats bad.

Microwaves are pretty much a non repair item. It will cost you more to fix than it would to replace.
