Question about Jenn-Air JMC9158AA Convection Microwave Oven
I am thinking of purchasing this microwave to replace an old Jenn-Air (15 years). Is this a good microwave or can you recommend something else?? My cut-out space is small (24 W x 18 H). What do you think??
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.

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.
