Jenn-air jmv9169ba will not heat


I hope you are a technician as there are lethal voltages inside a microwave , you could also inadvertently expose yourself to microwave radiation if protective switches are disabled or the door seals are damaged .Open the microwave top cover, disconnect the two wires going to the Power Transformer (The Big one) and connect a Dummy Bulb and Power up if the Bulb goes ON and OFF according to your settings, the control Panel is OK, or else replace .Check the High voltage diodes, Protector Diodes and the high voltage capacitors , if they are OK the magnetron is suspect. The high voltage transformer rarely fails. If the microwave is of the inverter type , forget it, it is not for amateurs to repair.

Spacemaker (JVM1871SK) 1800 Microwave doesn't microwave


Remove the case and see if you can localize the smell. Likely suspects are a shorted high voltage diode (replace) or a shorted stirrer bearing (replace stirrer)--a fan-like device located within the sheet metal waveguide near where the microwaves enter the cooking cavity. Make sure to have a cup of cold water in the cooking cavity when looking for problems. The problem could also be the high voltage transformer or the high voltage capacitor, but these are more rare problems. There are no radiation problems with the case off, but there are high voltages associated with the magnetron and it's power supply.

Whirl pool microwave dont heat


High voltage parts are suspect. Need to put a voltmeter on the input (primary) side to the high-voltage transformer (big heavy iron thing in there) Should be getting 120Vac when it goes to cook cycle. Don't touch the other (high voltage) side of this transformer. If the power is there, you are looking at replacing high-voltage capacitor and diode. If that doesn't solve it, then it needs a new magnatron. Its affordable if you do it yourself - buy the part on EBAY - lookup "universal magnatron"
Hope ya fix it!
