Product JVM1440WH04 - Heats but internal fan seems to not be working

Had microwave as a replacement for about a year (Brandsmart replacement issue) but only installed it a few days ago. Worked fine but now internal fan seems to have stopped (heats food but gets very hot inside). I don't know if we would be able to get any help from Brandsmart as we didn't use the appliance immediately (we had another one and saved this till we needed it).
a) would it be expensive to fix?
b) is is dangerous to use it in the short term?

Thankx

SAMSUNG MICROWAVE FAN STOPS WORKING. COULD IT JUST BE THE FUSE?


I would guess, I do not know for sure that the fa motor seized and blew the fuse, during the process the internal protection device on the fan motor opened giving you exactly what you are describing.

No power - blown fuse?


If it was run without the fan a thermal protect device was more than likely taken out. Check for that and replace the fan.

Microwave oven does not heat up


This seems to be a common problem with microwaves, the problem is likely the magnetron "heats food" and the heart of the system. If the oven is five years or more I would suggest a new one.

Suggest you pull the plug out, remove outer cover and place a cup of water into the micro. Set power to minimum then switch on and take note if the fan works or not. If not, switch off immediately and have it replaced(magnatron will burn out if left to run without fan.)

Numbers 4,7,8,9,0 and Beverage on pad do not work. Others do work, do I have to replace the oven? (Spacesaver JVM1440WH04) Over stove oven installed in Feb 2007, in use 4 months each year. This problem...


No you can have the keypad replaced. It may be something as simple as a dis-lodged keypad ribbon connection where it mates to the control panel recepticle. If you look here: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/modelsearch.aspx?model=JVM1440 there are several model numbers it seems you did not provide all of the numbers but the keypad is the same. The key panel here is $75.00 http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/modelsearch.aspx?model=JVM1440 Then you add a service call or shop charge your looking at well over a $100.00 repair. Your call on how to proceed. Good luck.

Maytag MMV4205BAS OTR microwave does not vent internal steam and the microwave shuts off. It takes about 15 minutes to reset and power back up. What part is bad?


I have this same microwave, and I'm having trouble with it shutting off. It use to go back on, but now it doesn't work at all. I tried replacing the two fuses under the panel, but that wasn't the problem.

After some research and calling vendors, I believe the issue is most likely due to a failure of the magnetron tube which supplies the microwaves. Take it to a repair professional to get a cost estimate on fixing.

This model of Maytag seems to have BIG problems! It's either the tube is out, the turner doesn't work, or it just goes dead. Usually it's after 2-4 years of service. Poor quality... Maytag lost a lot of clients with this product!

No power to microwave, changed fuse but still nothing!


There is an internal fuse and internal TCOs (thermal cutouts / thermostats) any of which can interrupt the power to the unit.

Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.
