Blew mine last year when ice storm took service entrance off the side of the bldg, the applied voltage went up to 180vrms.
Dismantled the front and accessed the circuit board behind the keypad and there was a blown varistor (you can see if it is charred).

It may be a blown fuse or the thermal cutout (TCO) / thermostat on either the magnetron or on top of the oven cavity.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.


Accessing some parts may require you to pull the oven from the wall and remove the cover.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

I have a GE JVM1190 Microwave Oven. It's sounds


It's cooking when it shouldn't, but the internal cooling fan is not running, so the magnetron is overheating, which can kill it.

Then when it gets hot enough, it trips the magnetron's thermostat, interrupting all power to the microwave. When it cools, it comes back on.

If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.

The problem is almost certainly that the power relay on your control circuit board is shorted.

We regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid with a one-year guarantee.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more free information & help.

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

Display panel reads "RESET" and keypad doesn't work


I believe I answered this, so pardon me if this is a dupe. It sounds like a problem on the control board. If it was stored in an unheated garage, shed, or other building, it could have some condensation deposits which could cuase corrosion on the circuit board. We repair these control panel assemblies nationwide for $32.50 and you can find out more through my listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk If you have not tested and cleaned the keypad strip where it goes into the board, post back or e-mail me and I can give you instructions on that.
