Question about GE JVM1660 Microwave Oven
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi newer microwave ovens have a built in resistor to bleed the power from the capacitor once it is unplugged. Saying this it is always a good safety practice to discharge it.
The factory approved method is to purchase a 2 Watt, 20,000 ohm resistor and touch it across the terminals on the microwave capacitor to discharge, doing this with a tool like pliers so you are not touching the metal tips of the resistor.
Most technicians will use pliers that have insulated handles and touch the tips to the capacitor. I am not condoning that, just letting you know.
