Question about GE 29490GE2 Corded Phone
I have a couple of these which have suffered a lightning surge and its getting a bit expensive to keep buying new ones. They still function but not fully. I need a circuit diagram. Can you help?
Would be nice to send it to you for repair but I live in South Africa which makes it a bit difficult.
The local GE agent is not interested.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

Yes they have fuses, I am positive it's your fuse, take all 5 screw's off and you'll see it at the back on the right hand side were the ac cord goes in.

I doubt you'll be able to find a service manual for this. I would take it (if it means a lot to you) to a good repair center. They should be able to troubleshoot the problem even without a schematic.

I repair GE circuit boards, but the problem is not your circuit board.
This is due to a defective or loose magnetron causing electrical interference and disruption in the control circuit board.
If your magnetron was recently replaced, it may have loose mounting nuts or bolts or maybe the wire mesh RF gasket was not installed or got pinched.
It may also need a new high-voltage diode and stirrer, and the cavity may be affected.
Details are in their bulletin here. Even if your model is not on the list, the same problem can occur, requiring a kit. The parts kit is similar to this one.
(Your model may use a different kit - this is shown for illustration purposes only).
If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.
There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
We're happy to help you and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Chances are it did not damage the control(operating) curcuits, but most likely the Telephone curcuits in the answering machine.
