Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Nothing displays on the control panel, microwave won't turn on.

I have a Jenn-Air built in unit with a mirowave on top. It was working fine and then all of a sudden the clock display turned off and nothing on the control panel works now. I checked the fuse it is fine. I checked the power source and its working. Never had a problem with the unit before. Need to know if replacing the control board would be a recommendation. Any other suggestions?

Thanks!

    I have a KitchenAid microwave that has a F2 error. Customer service at KitchenAid believes I need to replace the control panel. How much should a control panel cost to replace or repair? Should I just replace the microwave?

Hi I have a Samsung SMH9187 micowave that is dead (no display, light, fan, mirowave).


Sounds like the main fuse blew. It's either near where the power cord enters the cabinet, or behind the control panel (if an over the range unit).

You may also have some type of failure in the high voltage circuit; based on your description of the symptoms.

Jenn Air Microwave builtin oven has no display and will not turn on. Had the power to the oven checked and it's ok. The oven stop working when it was on. The oven is 17 years old.


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

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

You should check the internal fuse as well as the oven cavity thermostat / thermal cutout and the magnetron's thermostat / thermal cutout.

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

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.

Jenn-air microwave JMC 7000 ADB has no power


I have a different Jenn-Air built in microwave & oven combination but I'm sure my solution will work for you as well.

My microwave was plugged into an outlet located on the top of the oven. This outlet has a "circuit breaker" that tripped while we were using the self cleaning feature on the oven. You just need to reset the breaker button right next to the wall oven outlet. Why it tripped is a mystery since the microwave was not in use at the time. Bad design.

Of course, getting to the reset button is your only challenge. You need to pull the microwave and oven out of the wall/cabinetry in order to get to it. The unit is heavy so you will need help. Or, call a certified repairman and they should be able to do this for you in 30 minutes or less so the service call should not run you more than @$85 if it is no longer under warranty.

I would also suggest you contact Jenn-Air to complain about this issue and seek reimbursement from them if necessary.

Jenn-Air Microwave turntable not working, microwave works


It's probably a cracked coupler or a weak, slipping motor.
