SOURCE: can't use the microwave

To lock or unlock the keypad, press and hold the CLEAR pad for 5 seconds. If this recurs, you may have a power line problem or trouble with your controller. If you suspect trouble and it's under warranty, don't hesitate to contatc GE via ge.com. If you don't have your mower's manual, you can download one at: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/

SOURCE: Jenn-Air JMC7000 Microwave Stopped working

So it's dead? (No display, no inside lights, no beeps?)

A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the thermostat to open. When it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

If it's random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or fuse holder.

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams for the similar model M438 here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

The model M437 is not listed, but the M438 is, and it should be similar enough to guide you. Just don't count on the part numbers being the same.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

How do I unlock the control panel of a ge microwave oven?


See the link

Many microwave control panels can be locked to prevent accidental use or access by children.
There are two different ways to lock the control panel:
  1. Press and hold the CLEAR/OFF pad for 3 seconds. The display will show "LOCK" and then revert to the time of day. A small "L" will appear in the corner of the display as a reminder that the control panel is locked. If anyone tries to use the microwave, the display will show "LOCK".
  2. On some models, press and hold the 5 and 7 pads simultaneously for 3 seconds.

To unlock the control: Repeat the procedure which was used to lock the control. (Press and hold the CLEAR/OFF pad for about 3 seconds or hold the 5 and 7 pad simultaneously for 3 seconds.)

How to remove JMC8127DD from cabinet


The wiring diagram for the microwave shows it is separate and distinct.
Usually slid-in counter top microwaves in this cubbyhole configuration have a trim piece surrounding & covering the front edges of the oven on all sides like a picture frame.
Normally you remove 4 or more screws in the trim frame, pull the frame off, then slide the oven out a little (there may be a locking tab on the cubbyhole's rails for safety) to unplug the cord, and then slide it out the rest of the way.
You can find installation instructions and other literature for this model for free download here.
You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts and accessories for it here.

Jenn air microwave model jmv820aas shut down completely, what do i do?


I'm guessing you might mean JMV8208AAS?

If so, then the service manual is at our site here.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

mini_manual_behind_grille_small.jpgdee77f7.jpgAt our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can order Jenn Air parts here.

Your problem will be either the line fuse, or one of the thermal cutouts / TCOs in the unit.

In case it needs circuit board repair, see this link.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Microwave is locked


If this is a problem of the control panel being locked, the instructions are posted on page 9 of the owner's manual. Press STOP/CLEAR, followed by pressing and holding the ENTER/START button for 3 seconds. The lock should clear.

If you no longer have an owner's manual, here is a link to a FREE copy:

If I'm wrong in my assessment, or if you need further guidance, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

My Jenn-aire microwave says locked and has a picture of a padlock. I was microwaving bacon and had just put it some to cook ( my second batch per se) and everything was locked up. I tried pushing options...


Most likely you set a child lock (front panel lock) by holding a button too long (3 seconds). Without a model number, I can't be absolutely sure of the keypad lock for your Jenn-Aire microwave. Usually, the key will have a small padlock icon on it. Press and hold this key. On my microwave you press and hold Start to toggle the lock off.

On a Jenn-Aire JMW2430 and similar models, the Button Lock is activated by a several step process (More and Button Lock). However, pressing and holding the Start button will deactivate it.

I hope this helps.

Read-out shows F3


On a GE microwave, "F3" means a bad membrane keypad.

You can order a membrane keypad here and install it yourself according to this handy illustrated guide, or we can install it for you.

If the keypad is not available separately, you can order a control panel frame assembly here, which comes with a new keypad already installed.

But since this was posted under Jenn-Air, that confuses the issue. If yours is a Jenn-Sir, please post a new help request here on FixYa and include the full model number from the tag, or contact us for a free estimate and tips.

How do i remove a built-in jenn-air microwave?


There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If you don't find yours, or if you want to look at it without disassembling the oven, you can download it here.

If not, try here.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

If the fuse is good, it may be the magnetron thermal cutout (TCO or thermostat) or the oven cavity thermal cutout (TCO or thermostat).

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
