I have a ge jvm 1750 dm1ww microvawe and suddenly stop working . i changed the 20 amp 250 w fuse inside the display panel and the light and the microvawe started working again.However as soon as i use the...


It's possible the high-voltage capacitor is bad, but I suspect a bad interlock monitor switch. This is one of several switches operated by the door latches, and it's wired to cause the fuse to blow if you try to operate the oven with the door open. The switch may be stuck, which can happen if the oven door gets slammed. It's also possible the switch is good but is out of adjustment.

Replacement switches are available. The Sears parts website has an exploded diagram showing where it's located (item number 30). You should let a professional make the repair, though. Microwave ovens are dangerous items to work on, and if door repairs aren't done correctly there can be excessive microwave leakage.

The microwave will not operate or turn on even though it has power


The main fuse in the microwave has blown, this is often caused by a defective door switch.

Oven suddenly lost heat, inside fuse is OK though. Display, fan, turntable all working. Is it magnetron or its power supply?


You're right, if the lights come on and turntable moves, it is most likely your magnetron.

665.68601890 Acts as though it is not receiving power but breaker is not thrown. Is there an internal reset. Nothing responds - no lights, fan or microwave. Panel is black and non responsive


ther is on most microwaves a fuse inside usually located behind display panel located in a fuse block or will be on the control board itself.. normally a 20 amp fuse...try that first if not then make sure you have power to control and if so and no display most likely the display control board...
may luck out and be just the fuse though....good luck

While replacing one of the lights on the underside of the GE Spacemaker JVM1631WB 002 the bulb came loose from the socket and a loud pop blew out the other light. Now neither light works. All other...


We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid with a one year guarantee.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan, cooling fan, turntable, and/or inside light operation, too.

Details of our service are at our Web site, along with a video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Feel free to contact me directly with your brand, full model number and symptoms.

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

Microwave just stopped working one minute working one minute no power no display (about 20 years old) can we troubleshoot and repair ourselves?


sounds like fuse may have blown..if light doesnt come on inside then that is possibly what is wrong..the fuse is inside the case and u have to take the outside off to get at it...make sure the power cord isnt plugged into the wall and do not touch anything else inside the unit ..there is a big capacitor inside that can give a very very bad shock....or the logic board is not good..if that is the case then it is not worth repairing

After cleaning, the microwave worked but


I am still working on the problem. So far the exhaust fan, the light , the clock and light inside the heating chamber has started working. I am going to sit back and think and look for the part that shorted out. Since the unit is 29 years old the bad part may not even be available. I will keep you advised after I find the culprit part. The information may be beneficial to others. Thanks

No power for microwave. model is a sharp 1460a. We miss it! Nothing works. Is there a fuse or is ther a power supply that can go bad???? The recepticles in the house works, so there is no problem there....


Ok. recepticles work, you'll have to take microwave apart make sure its unplugged before you start. Severaly screws around the cabinet of microwave when you take these out make sure you know where they go back because all of them may or may not be same size and length. once you have it apart start at where the cord enters the frame of the microwave and there should be a fuse which is the main fuse close to where the cord comes in microwave. Thats where I'd start.Take fuse out of holder take your meter turn it to ohms, looks like a horse shoe. touch each end at the same time with the leads from the meter and if the meter reads OL fuse is bad if it dont read OL the fuse is good.Get that far and if everything checks out get back in touch with me and I'll give you more info. This is more than likely your problem since not even a light wont come on or even the display.

Yes, the fuse being bad would kill the unit totally.

Do the fan and inside light work when you try to cook?

If so, then the problem is in the high voltage section.

If not, then the problem is most likely a door switch or mount issue or possibly a problem on the control board.

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

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.
