I would say one of the thermal fuses has blown, either the one for the magnetron or the cooking cavity. This is a simple and inexpensive fix for a DIYer.

If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can find the full service manual for a similar model here.

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

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

I have the Jenn-Air microwave oven. It is mounted in a cabinet. How do I replace the light? Should I try to remove the microwave from the cabinet? If so, how is this done. The manual is vague on this. It...


Most microwaves are similar in design, and here is how for a GE, which will most likely apply to the Jenn Air:

This site explains the process:

To discharge the cap, you can touch an insulated screwdriver across it's terminals, but just avoid the contacts and you will be fine.

Everything works, sounds normal, but it will not heat anything.


Owners of a GE WES model might want to look at this blog post.

Hopefully its still under warranty.

If so, GE Customer Service is here.

If not, I'd replace the oven.

Microwave went POP and stopped.


probably not the fuse. If it is, then something caused it to blow as a fuse is a safety device. Since microwaves can be dangerous due to the radio waves, here is what I've done in the past. I had Sears come out and diagnose the problem. Before tech left, I told him I don't have the money to fix it now but will do it in a month or two. I had him write down the parts I needed and the part numbers so when I do want it fixed, I do not have to start at ground zero. He was glad to help. I watched everything he did, and since I work on commercial microwaves, amana, it was no problem for me to order the parts and do the repairs myself. My microwave is a 1200 watt over my stove.
Keep in mind that microwaves are getting so cheap, that you may want to look into just what a replacement will cost.
