Question about GE JE2160 Microwave Oven
I have a GE JE2160 Microwave and it went dead. I replaced the fuse and it worked for about a day before it went dead again (likely the fuse). What should I replace with the fuse? Is it something I can do?
If you have all ready changed out the fuse and it has happned again i would first check to see that the fuse is the right one for the machine (i am sure that you did this but please recheck ) next i would look at the controle board as the next culprit it maay be failing expecially if there were any pops ar sparks that was noticed before the initial failure.
Also check to see if all of the wires by the board a re not loose or looked burned ar if there is any grease or anything like this around the area
And finally check to see if the plate is turning ok and not sticking cause this would cause the microwave to overload and it wil make every fuse you put in there fail after just a couple of uses ok
SO please try all of these things that i have explained to you
I hope this is very helpful for you.
Best regards Michael

If the fuse keeps blowing, then you have another faulty component. Something is either shorting out or is wearing out and cannot handle the power being sent to it. It could be a capacitor, a relay, the fan, power supply ect. Testing with a volt & ohmmeter will be needed to find the faulty component.
