    Yes it is,and there is if you know how to use an Ohm meter.



    Just test both sides of the coil for continuity.

Hi

Look for a fuse that looks like an automotive fuse, the glass tube type, accept the microwave one looks gray or brown instead of clear glass.

Carefully, without touching anything, pull the fuse out and check with multimeter to see if it's good. or Just replace it with another fuse rated at 120 volts. Put the cover back on, put screws in, plug it in and Hopefully you are done.

You can also check the plug to see if the wire are not loose from it.

Thanks

May Spacemaker XL1800 stop heating food. Was working fine. Then just stop


Is this an over the stove type unit? I have had a few problems with my over the range spacesaver. I think the heat from cooking gets up into the microwave and damages it. The steam from me boiling things on the stove had mine quit heating and I purchased a new one. The parts to replace the faulty ones can be quite expensive over $150.00, so its better to purchase a new microwave.

Where is the fuse located in a GE Spacemaker II microwave model number J EM824_ _ _ ? I can't read the rest of the model number.


If the microwave control panel doesn't light up, then your fuse is blown. unplug the microwave. unscrew the vent grill, (2) screws at the top of the microwave. then you should see 1 screw holding the control panel. after removing that screw, gently push up then out. there should be a metal plate on top of the control panel. remove that plate and the fuse will be in that opening. remove the fuse and check for continuity across the fuse. Replace fuse and microwave should begin working.

My ge profile spacemaker II microwave went dark, no lights of any kind and no sound or response when pressing any button. tried resetting the circuit breaker but no change


Did you check the internal fuse? Often when everything is dark the fuse that protects the microwave is blown. Take the old fuse to your local hardware store and they will have a replacement for you. Should cost less than $5.

I have a GE Profile spacemaker 2.0 microwave and it just quit working on me. Sounded like a fuse popped?? I verified that the electrical outlet was working. Is there a fuse to replace inside the microwave?


Hello. You have isolated the problem.

Usually, when your microwave oven doesn't work it all, the internal fuse (thermal fuse) is blown. This fuse protects both you and the oven. When it blows, you need to have a qualified appliance repair technician replace it.

Spacemaker quit working.....


sounds like a short in unit and if it is then must be taken apart to observe operation and failure spot. depending on the age GE has warranties that cover magnatron up to five years< most likely cause of problem> suggest calling company before procieding any further.

My GE spacesaver oven JVM230 quit, like a fuse blew. No over the stove light, no exhaust fan, nothing. I checked the circuit breaker and pluged in an appliance and it worked. The plug is okay. Jim


This is almost certainly a blown thermistor. This device is located at the air outlet on the microwave. This is a thermally sensitive resistor that cuts power if the unit overheats for safety. It can fail because of age also. Replace with the save value unit. You can get this part from electronics stores like Radio Shack.

2 year old ge profile spacemaker Microwave lost all power


Inside unit is a cylinder fuse which can blow for a number of reasons. External cover needs to be removed to access. If you are confident in doing this and can find & check the fuse then it would be my first guess. If fuse is OK then you will need to have repaired. If fuse isblown & you replace then it blows again,you will need to have repaired. regards
