Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
Issue: Fuse keeps blowing when trying to cook.
Is the unit still under warranty? The problem is either in the power supply section that powers the Magnetron or the Magnetron itself. The clue is that the fuse keeps blowing ONLY when you go to cook something. The Magnetron is the microwave tube that excites the molecules in the food, causing friction, resulting in heating of the food. Magnetrons can be purchased through MCM Electronics. http://www.mcmelectronics.com/ 1-800-543-4330
Call them and tell them the model & make of your oven. They will be able to cross reference a replacement part for you.

THE COVER I TALKED ABOUT IS THE PART THAT GO,S AROUND THE OVEN ON THE OUTSIDE. MAKE SURE THAT YOU THE PLUG FROM THE WALL OUTLET BEFORE YOU GO IN SIDE
THE OVEN. YOU CAN FINED THE AC FUSE BY LOOKING AT THE CORD AS IT GO,S INTO THE OVEN FROM THE BACK
JUST FOLLOW THE WIRES TO THE FUSE. IT,S GOING TO BE
ABOUT A 1/2 INCH LONG AND MAYBE A LITTLE LESS THAN
1/4 INCH AROUND. IT WILL HAVE TWO METAL END CAPS.
SOMETIMES THEY ARE CLEAR AND SOMETIMES NOT.
REPLACE WITH THE SAME RATEING THE RATEING CAN BE
FOUND ON ONE OF THE END CAPS

YOU HAVE TO TAKE THE COVER OFF THE OVEN TO CHECK
THE AC LINE FUSE.
