So it's dead? (No display, no inside lights, no beeps?)

A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the thermostat to open. When it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

If it's random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or fuse holder.

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

SOURCE: Removing a built in Jenn-Air Microwave from it cabinet...

First of all, what are the symptoms? Please reply back and I'll be happy to share my thoughts.

Many parts can be accessed without removing the oven from the wall by just removing the control panel.

You need to be sure the cord is unplugged, then you remove the vent grille that runs across the top.

Then you'll see a screw holding the control panel in place. Once that screw is out, you can lift out and out carefully to separate the control panel form the chassis.

If you pull any wires off the control panel, mark and/or photograph them first to be sure you get them ALL back in the right place.

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

Before you start, we have *critical* safety & disassembly info at our site. You'll find a link to our site in our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

While they don't have their installation instructions online, the owner's manual is online here.

Jennair combo micro wall oven 30" replace microwave?


When a microwave is dead, the most common causes are a blown fuse, or a blown thermostat / thermal cutout / TCO on the magnetron or on top of the oven cavity.

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

Accessing the oven cavity thermostat for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall and take off the outer cover.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

My microwave oven is dead. Apparently the fire protector blew. How to locate and how to replace?


Since you didn't mention the model number, I have to be kind of general.

If you mean the flame sensor or oven cavity thermostat, they are usually located on the top of the cooking cavity, so you would first have to remove the oven from the wall mount if it's an over the range type.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

If for some reason you don't still have your installation instructions, y
ou can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

You can download owner's manuals and installation instructions for several brands (including Amana, Jenn-Air, Kitchenaid, Litton, Maytag, Roper, Tappan, Thermador and Whirlpool) here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

Then you can remove the outer cover to access the parts.

Replace the fuse. Need a drawing or something to tell me how to get to the fuse. Cannot see how to do it easily, without removing it from the wall.


The fuse for this model is on the filter board on top of the internal cooling fan frame.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven (JMC8130DDS) here.

If the fuse tests good, then the oven cavity thermostat, magnetron thermostat, and control circuit board (which we repair) are other parts that can make the oven dead.

Accessing some components (especially the oven cavity thermostat) for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall and take off the outer cover.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

Changing microwave light bulb


Check the owner's manual to see if yours is a model which allows access to the lights without pulling it down from the wall.

Accessing the lights on some models will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

You can download owner's manuals and installation instructions for several brands (including Amana, Frigidaire, Jenn-Air, Kitchenaid, Litton, Maytag, Roper, Tappan, Thermador and Whirlpool) here.

Most bulbs can be matched up at hardware stores, home improvement centers, and places like Wal-Mart or even large grocery stores.

Many use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

Jennair JMV8208BCS No instructions in box


Hello. the installation of wall mounting bracket is not too difficult. you will need a drill, some bits, and a scrrewdriver. you will also need an electrical outlet at that spot to plug in the microwave.

Jennair makes a bracket kit for each microwave. Call any jennair dealer, have your model # handy and they will get you the bracket you need, also ask specifically for the instructions.

I have an old Jenn Air microwave above the range I need to remove


Hi there,

If you only need to remove the oven from the housing, there will be (should be!) 2 small screws at each side of the trim, 2 top and 2 bottom. Remove these and the oven should slide straight out. These screws will be into the side panels of the housing, but there may only be two fitted! Depending what you are intending to do next, you may have to disconnect the supply cable and/or dismantle the oven to replace parts. You will need two people to lower it to the floor, have a stool or similar handy in case the cable length is too short to allow this.

Good Luck
Thanks

The fuse is located in a plastic inline holder behind the control panel.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typicalover the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout (TCO)/ thermal fuse on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / bodyof the oven.

There should also be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind thecontrol panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which isvery helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

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

I have a Jenn Air over the stove microwave oven JMV8000ADW. How do I compare 1 through 10 power of my oven (1450 wattage)when looking through microwave cookbooks of lesser wattage? How do I compare their...


Power level 1 = 10%, 2 = 20%, 9 = 90%, etc.

So 1000/1450 ~ .69, so use power level 7.
