Question about Jenn-Air JMC7000 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Removing a built in Jenn-Air Microwave from it cabinet...

Just bought a house and the built in Jenn-Air Microwave, oven combo unit is on the fritz. I *think* the JMC7000 diode is bad. I want to test it, but removing the microwave from the housing seems challenging.

After taking on the bezel face plate the surrounds the microwave, there appears to be a bunch of brackets that keep the unit inplace. There is no easy access to an screws or anything.

Any ideas? Any links to oven/microwave install instructions, so I can reverse the process?

    Thanks for the reply.

    The symptoms are a loud noise with about half heating capacity. From an earlier poster it has been suggested that this is a diode problem (likely) or could be the magnetron. [Personally, I'm not a fan of Jenn-Air and would buy a replacement - but finding an exact size has proved challenging].

    It is heartening to read that I can access some parts from the front. I'll poke around and look for the screws you are talking about. I'll cross check with a parts diagram that you linked to.

    Since I can't get the unit unplugged, I'll have to switch off a breaker. Discharging the cap shouldn't be a big problem if I get a screw-driver to it.

First of all, what are the symptoms? Please reply back and I'll be happy to share my thoughts.

Many parts can be accessed without removing the oven from the wall by just removing the control panel.

You need to be sure the cord is unplugged, then you remove the vent grille that runs across the top.

Then you'll see a screw holding the control panel in place. Once that screw is out, you can lift out and out carefully to separate the control panel form the chassis.

If you pull any wires off the control panel, mark and/or photograph them first to be sure you get them ALL back in the right place.

There may also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

Hey David... sorry to say

There's a $14 fuse between cooking & your magnetron (could be other things (but in my opinion... magnetrons sound right for your symptoms)

I checked for your magnetron
and got MFR Number 461967847321 - not AVAILABLE.

I have a old jenn air wall oven and a old jenn air microwave mounted on top. it was a countertop model. when i removed it it was plugged into the top of the oven. would that be a 110 appliance outlet?


The Jenn Air microwave that is mounted above the oven in your unit is 110v 60Hz. The socket in the upper rear right corner of the oven is a 110v 6Hz socket and is where the microwave would be plugged in. If you are going to replace the microwave, you can plug it into that socket. If you would rather not use that socket, you will have to drill a hole in the side of the cabinet holding the over/microwave to get the power cord out.

Hi!
I read your comment about needing to remove the control board to inspect it for damage. Looking at the diag. below, all you need to do is open the oven door and remove the two screws (#2 on diag.) fastening the brackets that hold the board in place and you can take it from there.

Refer to the diag. below If it was me, I would start by turning the breakers for both ovens OFF, then, in getting someone to help me pull the oven out, disconnect the power cord and check the power circuit protection devices like the fuse #4, located above the fan and the power board #25 also located on the back of the unit. Before replacing the blown fuse, inspect the wiring, If the unit is mounted over an oven that was in the Self Cleaning Mode that reaches temps. of about 500 degrees, there is a chance that a wire's insulation melted and shorted the unit.

My JennAir M170 just quit working, nothing.........bought in 1998. Time for a new one? If so, how do I go about just getting the micro for the combo unit? Or do I have to buy an whole new combo unit?


I would at least have a service tech look at it. Here are the comon items to check most of the time when a microwave just quits. 1 the internal fuse. 2 the power diode 3 the large capacitor 4. door open / closed micro-switches 5 the magnetron. The least likely suspect is the control panel yet can also cause the problem. You should still be able to keep this unit in service cost effectively. Until I had it checked out I would not give up on it.

The power went out on the microwave. We were cooking potatoes in there, and it just went dead. We were using the Jenn-Air oven below it at the same time, but that is still working.


There's a circuit breaker behind the microwave. Yup, that's where
they put it, believe it or not. The microwave and the oven are joined
together so you have to pull both of them out to get to the circuit
breaker. There are screws that hold the microwave and oven to the
cabinet it's mounted in. There should be 4 around the microwave
door and 6 around the oven door. The oven door needs to be
removed to get to the 2 bottom screws. The oven door has a metal
tab on it's 2 hinges that must be pushed down to unlatch the oven
door hinges from the 2 (per side) posts that the oven door pivots
on to open and close. After the door has been removed you can
take out the last 2 screws, you should also remove the vent at
the very bottom of the oven by removing it's 2 screws. Make sure
you have a least 2 strong people to pull the whole unit out, it's
also a good idea to have something sturdy that's the same height
as the bottom of the oven to rest it on after you pull it out. You
don't really have to pull the unit completely out, but it helps. You'll
see the small circuit breaker on top of the oven at the rear of the
microwave, just press it to reset it. Putting the unit back in the
cabinet is the reverse of the removal, but be sure you don't pinch
the armored conduit that contains the gas line for the oven. It'll
probably want to fall behind the oven as you push it back into
place like it did at my friends house. What we did was I pulled it
up and held it at the back of the microwave while 2 guy's pushed
the unit back in. Fortunately, it stayed in place after they pushed
it part way in and I had to pull my arm out of the way. It's a really
crappy place to put a circuit breaker for the microwave. I mean,
come on! You couldn't put it under the microwaves bottom cover
plate? There's room for it there! Anyway, that's how it went at my
friends house. I hope this helps you fix you're problem.
