Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part (such as a shorted diode)

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

I have a used microwave that mounts under a cabinet, Kenmore model 721. It has only two screws to mount through cabinet does it require additional hardware? Seems alot of weight for just two screws.


Kurt,

There is usually a mounting bracket that mounts to the wall and the microwave hooks into that and is held up by the two screws you referred to in your question. Unfortunately, you have not provided enough of the model number for us to look up any info to help you find a new bracket to mount to the wall. Hope this helps!

Electrolux wall mount micro wave oven combo doesn't work


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Electrolux wall mount microwave oven combo is not working. I see that the oven is working, but the microwave is not. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and try any setting. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. If further troubleshooting is needed, please provide me with the model number of your air conditioner. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Removed my wall mounted microwave and could not get the microwave off the wall bracket. I now have some holes where the toggle bolts were. Will this interfere with the new installation


It's impossible to say without knowing the old model number and the new model number.

But since you posted under GE, I'll assume that's your brand.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

The microwave runs, it does not heat (model JVM1431BA 001. What part do I need to replace?


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 .


regards .

please rate !

How do you mount this model


There are two bolts through the bottom of the upper cabinet that attach to the top of the microwave. These support the front of the microwave. There is a wall plate attached to the wall studs that supports the back. If removing the microwave, take care when removing the front support bolts, as the microwave will fall if not supported when these are removed. There are instructions available at www.sears.com under parts direct. Your model number will be a longer number than you have here it will look like this 000.00000.

Remove a whirlpool over the range microwave oven


Jim here. In cabinet above microwave, locate 2 mounting bolts.
Place a box on the stove top to support the microwave once the mounting bolts are removed (you may wish to cover the box with a thick towel or small throw rug).
Procedure:
1. Unplug microwave.
2. Remove both mounting bolts from top of microwave (they secure it to the overhead cabinet).
3. With microwave front angled down onto box, pull some of power cord out of hole (to provide some moving space).
4. With microwave hand supported, remove box from stove top (a second set of hands would be helpful here).
5. HARD PART- detach top of microwave back from wall mounting plate by placing a hand under the bottom rear of the microwave and pushing up. (Wall mounting plate is screwed into the wall behind the microwave and provides both top and bottom support to the back of the microwave.)
6. Lower front of microwave until you can see about a 1-inch clearance between the top-rear of the microwave and the cabinet above it.
7. Firmly lift the microwave straight up and then bring forward. It should be free of the wall mounting plate.

Need New Microwave


Is the interior flaking the only problem with it?

It can be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly, then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

Otherwise, if you want to replace it, I would suggest contacting Jenn-Air Customer Care here and telling them your model number.

They can probably give you the model number of a new "drop-in" replacement.
