Inside the microwave is a fuse. If you can, try plugging the microwave into a different outlet (use an extension cord). If it does not power on, you have likely blow the fuse. If you are technical, you may look into replacing the fuse yourself (you will have to remove some parts of the microwave exterior to get to the fuse). Otherwise, if no longer in warranty, you will need to have a shop or handyman replace fuse.

    What I said about another outlet was to try yet one more outlet. I saw you already tried one, but make sure you are trying one on a SEPARATE circuit as the ones you already tried.

Why does it quit heating? My microwave?


If not the wall outlet, try another outlet to check. Bad at second outlet, it may be the plug itself. Otherwise, how old is it? It may be time to replace with a lightly used item, or a new, it may be less than haveing it repaired. Interior parts may fail.

My microwave is not heating


Are you sure you have power at the outlet? If not check your circut breaker box. You may have a GFI circut. The GFI outlets are very sensitive. They have reset button and test button. If other "non GFI" outlets are on the same cirute they are affected by the GFI outlet. The GFI outlets do fail at times, and need to be replaced. Have you had recent power outage? Sometimes our "smart devices" are too smart.
If you have power, I'd unplug for a few hours and see if that might reset it's "brain" If that doesn't help you may have a panel problem. Owner's manual? Check troubleshooting section. Warranty?, pursue that. Age of microwave? Consider the cost of repair vs. finding a lightly used "working" microwave.

Over range microwave model jvm1650wb008 fan works nothing else does


Check to see if circuit breaker is tripped in the electrical panel, or if it is connected to a ground fault outlet, it may have tripped. Sometimes there is one ground fault outlet serving others in series in the kitchen.

GE 1800 XL not heating, no power, except fan works and clock also


Hello :

It could be bad door switch or loose door switch mount . There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

or it could be problem with the control panel .


good luck .

please rate !

Oven has been working fine. Heating a cup of coffee it just stopped dead. No display. Nothing. Power to outlet working fine. Is there a reset somewhere?


Mine did this when my wife had it on full power for over 10 minutes. We left it set for 15 or so minutes and it came back on. It did the same thing when my niece was heating a liquid with some metal in it. It eventually came back on. There must be a thermal circuit breaker inside the unit. Yours may have a fuse or some sort of circuit breaker inside it, that needs replacing or resetting. Then again some units have a fuse that goes out when the Magnetron shorts out, or goes bad. This would require replacing the Magnetron as well as the fuse.

My microwave has no power


Is the unit plugged into the outlet.
Check to see if the outlet has power by plugging in a working light.
If no power check fuse/circut breaker.

My microwave quit working


You have obviously damaged the circuitry. Service is expensive. Unless the unit is under warrantry my advice is to replace the oven. The newer ovens are very reasonable and have great features. Check Home Depot.
