GE oven varistor board

I recently got a new (in packaging even) but ancient 1985 GE JKP77G*02 microwave/oven combo for almost nothing.

Hooked power to test before installing, it came on, then a loud pop, spark, smoke.

I am no tech but looked and determined the varistor board ge (discontinued) part number wb27x5293 is fried

AND that this probably happened because my white and or neutral power connections came loose- so it may not be the ancient oven's fault

questions: any idea where to find this part and if I find it/ replace, what is the chance no other damage was done? I have very little invested so far but don't plan on putting much money into an oven this old, a little time/effort no problem

Model WOC54E whirlpool microwave/oven combo. recent power outage. microwave works fine. oven display says feature not available for baking when bake button pushed


Hello Carla Christian,

The problem with "power outages" isn't the
out part... it is the VOLTAGE VARIANTS...

Will cause a weak spot to fail... Poor sold joint
or
a transformer... but since you have PARTIAL
functionality you need to look to the specific
are of function that is DEFECTIVE...

I tried you part number but my
parts house wants more numbers...

Take a loo at what I found...

This site also has technical support... AND
VIDEO guides...

They can help you get your WHOLE model number.

I have an ancient Sharp Carousel Alacard microwave. Part of the door seal has fallen off and broke into pieces when it hit the floor. Can we still get these parts or should I get a new microwave


Ancient is the key here, do you want to keep it sentimentally or build a new relationship with a new , young better model? The seal is essential to keep users safe from radiation....do not use if seal is damaged. Microwave is a klystron type transmitter used in radar. Have repaired and ck for escaping rf energy.if you go that route.I'd go new.

GE Dualwave Mirco Oven combo - Oven works fine - Micro doesn't even show the clock


There is a very good chance that it has blown a fuse. They would be located behind the control panel. Be careful around the wiring to the high voltage circuit and make sure that the power is shut off.

GE wall oven/micro combo JKP86WF7WW will no longer heat


Is it the oven or the microwave that is not heating? If it is the oven it is a very good possibility that the common relay on the control board has gone out. I have seen this several times on GEs. Unfortunately the control board will need to be replaced or repaired. Corecentricsolutions.com is very good about repairing control boards. the bad thing is you have to send them the board. Mark all connections before removing the board. (power off of course)

Wall microwave worth fixing?


There's micro switches and fuses worth fixing on microwaves... if its doing nothing its most likely the fuse on control board. maybe even the breaker.
