Five months ago ... it may still be in warranty. If so .. take it back ... dont open it up ... you will jeopardze your warranty standing.

Do you ever open the door while the machine is running? If you do ... the door satery interlock switches may have failed. If there is no warranty issue, you may want to remove the cabinet and check these little switches.

What happens is this ... when you close the door, the switches report to the oven that the door is closed and it is OK to turn on the heat. If the switches are burned, the contacts don't close and the oven thinks the door is open and will not turn on the heat.

Purchased an MCO165UB microwave 7 months ago. Ran great for 6 1/2 months and then there was no power. No fan, no light, no cooking. It was like the cord was unplugged but the electrical outlet has...


I would have your house hold supply checked on the socket that it is plugged into. One appliance fail but not two.
I hope you find your fault.

Re. Viking DMOS200 1100 watts microwave oven does not turn on


I'm guessing that's a VMOS200?

If so, that's a rebranded Sharp R-530ES (as is the Dacor DMO2420S) and its secondary interlock (bottom door switch) or that switch's mount is bad.

See this file on door switches. If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

The Sharp R-530E service manual will aid you in disassembly and it is here.

Motor 'Dragging'


The motor run's the same speed regardless of power setting.

If 1000 wats is too much for your poor old electric service, then you better not use your A/C.

As for checking voltage, you need to measure the voltage at the plug with the microwave operating.

Power cord


If you are referring to the main power cord then you should be able to purchase one at Home Depot/Lowes of most local hardware stores... make sure you get the current rating off the tag on the appliance.. 15Amp or less can use a cord size of 14 gauge.. you should use a 12 gauge for any appliance requiring up to 20Amps ( in your case ..1100 watts minus losses within the system should allow you to use 14 gauge power cord.)

Is the 1.1 cu ft 1100 Watt model: jes 1139bl sold by Home Depot the same as the 1.1 cu ft 1100 watt model sold by Lowes ? If so, what is the model number of the lowes unit ?


A quick check of the Lowe's Web site show the following GE 1.1 cubic foot microwave models:

JES1142SJ
JES1139WL
JES1139BL
JE1160WD
JE1160BD

If you still have any doubt, I'd call Lowes.
