Question about GE JVM1651 Microwave Oven

JVM1190 Surface light and fan will not go on

I changed the bulb in this microwave with out unplugging it, and I tripped a circuit breaker. Since putting the new bulbs in, the lights do not work. My fan now does not work. The microwave works fine, except for the lights and fan. The control panel seems fine, because when I press the fan or light buttons they are acknowledged. When I hit the fan button it says high, low or off but the fan doesn't go on. The same for the range light. Perhaps there is some common part that fried out. I am thinking a relay, or something along those lines. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    1.Unplug the microwave. 2.Remove the mother board (behind the display window) The circuit will show a melted lead. 3.jumper the lead with a wire (about 3/8 inch long, comparable thickness as the melted off lead). 4.Replace the circuit board. 5.Replace the light bulbs. 6.THEN PLUG in the microwave. All should be OK . The fan and surface lights should now work.( Next time unplug the microwave before changing light bulbs.)

We see this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

I replaced the light bulb under the unit on my microwave and went to turn it on and it tripped the circuit breaker and smoked the control panel. The only fuse in the unit is still good. Any thoughts?


< - Please let me know your full model number from the tag on the unit and I can can give you the repair information you need.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.

Hello!

Please consider troubleshooting the circuit of the oven, some connection in it is shorted causing the breaker tripped off.

Hope this help.

The vent fan and surface light do not work


1. Check your circuit breaker for this m/w. Reset it.
2. Microwaves usually have 20A fuse inside. It could be broken.

GE Microwave Surface Lights


The control circuits for the cooktop lights and the hood fan are spearate. The problem is indeed with the control unit. It's usually caused by either the filaments shorting when the lamp blows or by removing or installing the bulbs while the oven is still plugged into the power line. We regularly repair these nationwide for $32.50.

Sorry a bad controller printed circuit board or what GE calls a smart board. I have seen these smart boards as low as 85 bucks, go up to a price of 179.00!

The control circuit board needs to be removed and repaired. We routinely repair these from customers nationwide for $32.50. It sure beats the cost of a new board!
