Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
My Kenmore is 18 years old and it was still working fine. Two days ago, all the lights and indicators went dark. I checked it today and found that the fuse is blown. I can replace it but what I don't know is the Amp. capacity of the fuse. If any one can help me to let me know the main fuse Amp. I would really appreciate it.
Its either a 10-15-or20 ceramic fuse and its marked on the side of the fuse or take it to the hardware store they have this type of special fuse.and they can locate the rating for you

A microwave can be dead for many reasons.
If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the thermostat to open.
When it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.
If it's random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or fuse holder.
If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.
If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.
If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.
