Maybe you mean MAGNETRON ... replacing the magnetron is not difficult if you are mechanically inclined .. the problem is getting a proper replacement that doesnt cost more than the oven .. there are also other things that can make the magnetron look bad ... diode, capacitor, transformer,triac and thermal switch ... but if you are sure the magnetron is bad then make absolutly sure the power is not connected before doing anything .. the voltage and current inside the microwave can be fatal if its plugged in ... the cover comes off with just a few screws (top sides and back) .. inside you will find the electronics and a fan that blows on the magnetron's fins .. there is a plug at the bottom of the magnetron that just pulls out ... there are 4 bolts at the top that hold the magnetron in place .. you may have to lossen the transformer or other things like panels to make room to remove the magnetron.. observe how the magnetron was oriented and install the new one the same way .. if you are not skilled in this sort of thing then it is far better to get someone to help you that is .. many ham radio operators (general class and above) have at least knowlege of how this works and how to work safely ..

SOURCE: Jenn-Air JMC7000 Microwave Stopped working

So it's dead? (No display, no inside lights, no beeps?)

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.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams for the similar model M438 here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

The model M437 is not listed, but the M438 is, and it should be similar enough to guide you. Just don't count on the part numbers being the same.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

SOURCE: JENN AIR MICROWAVE FUSE (JENN AIR MODEL M167)

The fuse holder may be loose.

With the microwave unplugged, if you can easily turn the fuse with your thumb & forefinger while it's in the holder, it has overheated and fatigued and should be replaced.

Simply squeezing its terminals together with pliers is not really a good solution.

When a connection is loose, heat results, which eventually melts the fuse internally.

This is usually evidenced by a very tiny ball of solder at the point where the end cap meets the body of the fuse.

You can use a generic holder - it's a lot cheaper than ordering one. The connectors should be 1/4" tabs and it should be rated at 20 amps or better.

You should be able to get one from a home center or local appliance parts store.

If it's not loose, then it may be a failing magnetron or high voltage transformer pulling too much current.

SOURCE: jenn air microwave jmv8208bas The light

From the service manual:

The top full-width grille is removable for service to some components, such as: humidity sensor, oven light, door removal, flame sensor, vent motor capacitor, fuse, control panel, and stirrer motor (some models).

Grille Removal

1. Disconnect power to oven.
2. Remove screws located in front on top of microwave securing grille.
3. Pull outward on the top portion of the grille releasing the tabs.
4. Reassemble in reverse order.

The oven lamp part original number is 4713−001165 but you can get it locally (generics) at hardware stores, appliance parts stores, etc. It's a common 20 watt halogen bulb.

I have a old jenn air wall oven and a old jenn air microwave mounted on top. it was a countertop model. when i removed it it was plugged into the top of the oven. would that be a 110 appliance outlet?


The Jenn Air microwave that is mounted above the oven in your unit is 110v 60Hz. The socket in the upper rear right corner of the oven is a 110v 6Hz socket and is where the microwave would be plugged in. If you are going to replace the microwave, you can plug it into that socket. If you would rather not use that socket, you will have to drill a hole in the side of the cabinet holding the over/microwave to get the power cord out.

Most microwaves are similar in design, and here is how for a GE, which will most likely apply to the Jenn Air:

This site explains the process:

To discharge the cap, you can touch an insulated screwdriver across it's terminals, but just avoid the contacts and you will be fine.
Sorry to have to relay tough news, but how this helps you repair it.

My jenn-air microwave makes a LOUD humming noise


More than likely the power inverter board has been damaged and it would be best to stop using it immediately.

Jenn-air products are very good quality and quite expensive to replace. I would contact Jenn-air service and have a service tech dispatched to determine the exact problem and the cost to repair it. Jenn-air stands behind their product 100% and should be able to repair the unit for you.
