Its hard to say normally the magnatron would not short out the fuse, but you can go to www.appliance pros.com and put your model number in and look at the model there they have manuals for them there also to help you decide what you want to do with it. It could be anything.

GE Dualwave Mirco Oven combo - Oven works fine - Micro doesn't even show the clock


There is a very good chance that it has blown a fuse. They would be located behind the control panel. Be careful around the wiring to the high voltage circuit and make sure that the power is shut off.

  • 1.If your GE Profile microwave won't turn on, unplug it, then plug it back in. A power outage may have occurred due to a power surge. Check your home's fuses and circuit breakers.

    2.Set the clock of your GE Profile microwave. Certain models will not operate until you set the clock. Select the "Clock" key and type in the correct time.

  • 3.Hold down your microwave's "Off" button. You may have accidentally hit the control-lock feature on your GE Profile microwave. Hold down the "Off" button for three seconds to turn the lock off.

  • 4.If the sensors of your GE Profile microwave are not working correctly, remove the food from the machine. If the sensors detect food-surface temperatures over 200 degrees Fahrenheit, it will not work properly until the area cools down.

    How to change the fuse on Kitchen Aid model KEMS308SBL02 combination oven and microwave. The oven door locked after a power outage this week and now the oven won't come on.


    Hi,

    Press the "Off/Clear' button to cancel anything on the display, and reset the microwave. This is a soft reset and will simply get you out of any program you have started. Press it when the cooking complete reminder appears on the display.
    Perform a hard reset. Pull the plug out of the wall power supply, and wait a moment. Plug the GE microwave back into the wall power supply to reset any anomalies with the microwave's memory. You will need to reset the time of day if you perform a hard reset.
    Reset the time of day. Press the "Clock" button, and turn the dial to set the hours. Press the dial to enter. Follow the same procedure for the minutes and a.m. or p.m. Press the "Start" button to start the clock.

    Microwave shows clock but blows fuse


    Microwave ovens have a transformer inside them that puts out thousands of volts in order to create the "microwave" that cooks the food, but the clock and controls are on the circuit before that transformer.
    Most of the times the transformer is bad and depending on how much you paid for it, not worth the repair bill unfortunately. But thats why you see the clock, even though the fuse blows. I am assuming you mean the Microwaves INTERNAL fuse, if not then it is a model with a battery backup to not loose data like your alarm clocks do sometimes, therefore you would show the clock but not be able to start the Microwave.
    If it is the fuse or breaker in your panel that blows, then either the breaker is weak, or the transformer it shot. If it is 120volts, try plugging it into another outlet by either moving it or use an extension cord from another outlet you know work..if it starts, then you either have a bad breaker or some other electrical issue with the receptacle and should get a LICENSED electrician out, I say that because I am a Master Licensed Electrician and just because they say they are an electrician means nothing unless you see their license,plus ins. usually wont pay if there were a problem if an unlicensed person were used.
    I hope I helped, if so please give me a thumbs up!

    What would cause the microwave oven to go out other than the power?


    The magnatron is cooked or timer and/ or wire inside. If it is older, buy a new one. The repair cost on it is not worth it. Proabally over 100 bucks to start

    I opened the door of the microwave oven but I could feel hot air


    is yours a convection and microwave combo oven? if yes the fan is a cool-down fan to blow cold air over the magnatron tube. Microwaves are designed with a multiple number of safety switches usually 2 or more in the door that the magnatron (the thing that generates microve energy) could never come on with the door open.

    The oven would not start


    It doesn't work at all If your microwave oven doesn't seem to work at all, check these: 1)Fuses---- Usually, when your microwave oven doesn't work it all, the internal fuse (thermal fuse) is blown. This fuse protects both you and the oven. When it blows, you need to have a qualified appliance repair technician replace it. 2)Door switch--- If the fuse isn't the problem, check the door hooks and the door-release button. When these are broken, the door switch doesn't activate, so the oven can't work. please do not forget to rate the solution.thanks.

    GE double oven wall, JKP85B0A3BB


    I would start by checking all of the door switches. Once you remove the shell, you will see them all on a rail where the door latch goes. Some will be normally open, some normally closed. If they all check out, check all of your overloads and thermal fuses. They should all read closed. If they all check out as well, replace your magnatron, capacitor, and diodes.
