Question about Jenn-Air Microwave Ovens

1 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 just says remove a back plate. How do I get to that plate? Is the light inside the plastic ceiling ficture? Thank you. Kenneth Greenberg

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.
Sorry to have to relay tough news, but how this helps you repair it.

Hello, i'm looking to replace my light bulb in my jenn-air microwave oven modeljmc8130dds. any help would be greatly appreciated.


The lamp is inside the oven so it is necessary to remove the cabinet but be aware that dangerous voltages are exposed even with power disconnected.

I have a old jenn air wall oven and a old jenn air microwave mounted on top. it was a countertop model. when i removed it it was plugged into the top of the oven. would that be a 110 appliance outlet?


The Jenn Air microwave that is mounted above the oven in your unit is 110v 60Hz. The socket in the upper rear right corner of the oven is a 110v 6Hz socket and is where the microwave would be plugged in. If you are going to replace the microwave, you can plug it into that socket. If you would rather not use that socket, you will have to drill a hole in the side of the cabinet holding the over/microwave to get the power cord out.

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 Oven (JMC8130DDB) is dead. CB in Main (Box) is OK. Microwave is mounted in a wall cabinet over a Jenn-Air electric self clean Oven. Oven was in "self-clean" when the Microwave...


Hi!
I read your comment about needing to remove the control board to inspect it for damage. Looking at the diag. below, all you need to do is open the oven door and remove the two screws (#2 on diag.) fastening the brackets that hold the board in place and you can take it from there.

Refer to the diag. below If it was me, I would start by turning the breakers for both ovens OFF, then, in getting someone to help me pull the oven out, disconnect the power cord and check the power circuit protection devices like the fuse #4, located above the fan and the power board #25 also located on the back of the unit. Before replacing the blown fuse, inspect the wiring, If the unit is mounted over an oven that was in the Self Cleaning Mode that reaches temps. of about 500 degrees, there is a chance that a wire's insulation melted and shorted the unit.

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

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

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

Jenn-Air Microwave Bulb and Filters Inaccessible - Design Flaw - Help!


It's not a design flaw. The microwave was incorrectly mounted.

The installation instructions (installation kit) included a template for proper alignment of the microwave on the cabinetry.

If it had been aligned with the template, the two top grill screws would be easily accessible.

The grille must be removed to access the lights and the charcoal filters, which should be changed every 6-12 months if they are used.

If they are in place and not changed regularly, critical ventilation and cooling can be affected.

Your owner's manual can be downloaded free here, and it shows you how to change the bulbs and filter.

It will have to be remounted properly.
