Question about GE JVM1440 Microwave Oven
Microwave surface light and vent fan won't work after trying to replace
light bulb. Hate to have to call repairman when cost of repair could be
half the price of unit. I replaced the only fuse I could find - was in
front / top of unit.
GE web site only shows one fuse to replace so I assumed this was the one. No luck - any chance there is another fuse in back. This unit is mounted and difficult to get to anything else. Prior to removing I would like to verify another fuse?
We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.
This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.
This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.
