Question about GE JVM1340AW/BW/WW Microwave Oven
We had a power outage overnight.the microwave, did not reset. I have power at the outlet. checked the fuse inside the control panel of the microwave,its ok.. could there be a reset button? This model was made Aug-1996.
Check the main internal fuse. Unplug it, unscrew and take off the
cover, the fuse should be easily found in the back by the power cord.
It looks like a regular fuse but is white instead of clear glass
because microwave fuses are special. You'll have to measure it with a
meter as a result and be sure to replace it with the same kind. (try
finding them at radio shack) Hopefully there isn't something more
Hope ya fix it!

If you find the fuse blown or circuit breaker tripped, unplug everything from the circuit to which the microwave is connected (keep in mind that other outlets may be fed from the same circuit). Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker. If the same thing happens again, you have a problem with the outlet or other wiring on the same branch circuit. If plugging in the microwave causes the fuse to blow or circuit breaker to trip immediately, there is a short circuit in the power cord or elsewhere.
The microwave oven may be powered from a GFCI outlet or downstream of one and the GFCI may have tripped. (Removing a broken oven lamp has been known to happen.) The GFCI outlet may not be in an obvious location but first check the countertop outlets. The tripped GFCI could be in the garage or almost anywhere else! Pushing the RESET button may be all that's needed.
Next, try to set the clock. With some ovens the screen will be totally blank following a power outage - there may be nothing wrong with it. Furthermore, some ovens will not allow you perform any cooking related actions until the clock is set to a valid time.
Assuming these are not your problems, a fuse has probably blown although a dead controller is a possibility.
While you can do some repairs on your microwave, what you don't know can kill you... even on an unplugged microwave, so make sure you understand the dangers and how to reduce them before you try anything inside a microwave. If you want to do more yourself, go to the link at the top of this post.
