I had one that lasted a year and a half. Sears told me it would cost too much to fix. I replaced it with a GE, my other GE lasted 20 yrs.

GE oven is completely unresponsive but I have power to the plug that goes to the board. I see no obvious signs of damage, no burnt anything, not even a smell of burnt stuff.


Hi, Did you check the fuses on the stove. If it was built before and after model year 2000 there still should be fuses. If your stove is still under warrenty you may be able to get it fixxed for free. Good luck.

My kenmore elite microwave stoped working completly and i have no lights on de microwave at all


Probably a blown internal fuse; you will have to remove the housing to locate it and if a replacement also blows, it's time tlo shop for a new one.
Typical of too many things today, it will likely cost more to repair it than a new one costs.

How do I turn off the sound on my new Kenmore Elite microwave?


I Believe this model has an options button with codes by numbers which are 1 thru 6 I believe. Either 1 or 2 are sound. So hit the options button and hit the number 1 it should say (sound), Then you will hit 1 again a.k.a. mute, and no more beep beep beep. If 1 is not sound then you may have accidently created a small but deadly emp, so hit stop and you must hit options and then hit 2.

Fuse replacement Kenmore microwave


Unplug. Remove the top/side panel. The fuse will be obvious near the power cord it is a special non glass fuse used in microwaves. (i save many fuses from microwaves others placed at the curb so mine are always free)

Microwave stopped working


The main fuse in the microwave is probably open, causes are! door switch, magnetron, inverter board, "if 7 years old or less" and possibly the keypad control board. I recommend having it checked out.

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.

Kenmore elite microwave


Does the digital display light up at all? Is it completely dead? Are you sure it has power? Have you tried another outlet? If the outlet is good and the unit is completely dead, the internal fuse may have blown. You can try to take the cover off (with the unit unplugged) and look for a blown fuse. Try replacing the fuse with an EXACT fuse of the same rating. Try plugging the unit back in again and see if the unit comes back on. If not, you may have a power supply issue or defective Magnetron.

Please let me know what you find and we'll go from there.

Good Luck,
- Jim
