Question about GE Countertop Microwave Oven
The unit does not have power. owned it for a year and 4 months. new. no problems. now it has no power. no lights. breakers are good. tried connecting in another outlet. no power.
What has most likely happened is that somone slowly opened the door when the unit was operating without pusing the stop/pause button first. Doin this will cause the door interlock to blow the internal fuse as it is a design safety interlock to prevent the unit from operation with the door open.
Power plug unplugged
There is a 15A fuse inside the cabinet that must be replaced. Remove the cabinet screws 4 on the side and 6 on the back then slide the cover to the rear about 1/2 inch. Lift the rear of the cover up about 15 to 20 degrees and continue to pull the cover off.
Follow the power cord from where it enters the rear of the unit. The black power wire will terminate at the fuse block. Removed the fuse and replace it with an EXACT type replacement fuse. (buy 2)
If the fuse blows again there is another problem in the unit. If it works normally there is probably nothing to be concerned about. Just make sure that before opening the door you push stop before opening the door.
To re-install the cabinet cover graso the cover from the rear... holding the back of the cover up about 15 - 20 degrees and slide it back into place. Make sure to engage the side locking tabs with the front part of the chassis before installing the mounting screws.
