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.

SOURCE: jenn air microwave jmv8208bas The light

From the service manual:

The top full-width grille is removable for service to some components, such as: humidity sensor, oven light, door removal, flame sensor, vent motor capacitor, fuse, control panel, and stirrer motor (some models).

Grille Removal

1. Disconnect power to oven.
2. Remove screws located in front on top of microwave securing grille.
3. Pull outward on the top portion of the grille releasing the tabs.
4. Reassemble in reverse order.

The oven lamp part original number is 4713−001165 but you can get it locally (generics) at hardware stores, appliance parts stores, etc. It's a common 20 watt halogen bulb.

Jenn air microwave model jmv820aas shut down completely, what do i do?


I'm guessing you might mean JMV8208AAS?

If so, then the service manual is at our site here.

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

mini_manual_behind_grille_small.jpgdee77f7.jpgAt 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 can order Jenn Air parts here.

Your problem will be either the line fuse, or one of the thermal cutouts / TCOs in the unit.

In case it needs circuit board repair, see this link.

My Jenn-Air microwave JMV8208AAS will not heat the food and when turn on it makes a loud humming sound.


This is most likely the magnetron, the high voltage capacitor, or the power diode.

For an explanation on how these things are repaired, check out this website.

If all else fails, call an Appliance Repair Technician.

Interior bulb went out , and it's an over the counter mount. How do I get to the bulb ?


Remove the top grill cover by gently pulling out on it and down on the right side. Remove the filter that is in the middle. Look at the metal cover, push back on the plastic tab and pull the metal clip toward you. You can now gently lift the cover off expsing the lightbulb and replace it. Simple and easy, no tools needed.

My jenn-air microwave makes a LOUD humming noise


More than likely the power inverter board has been damaged and it would be best to stop using it immediately.

Jenn-air products are very good quality and quite expensive to replace. I would contact Jenn-air service and have a service tech dispatched to determine the exact problem and the cost to repair it. Jenn-air stands behind their product 100% and should be able to repair the unit for you.

Change a JennAir JMV8208aa Microwave light bulb


Inside light

1. Disconnect power to oven.
2. Remove screws located in front on top of microwave securing grille.
2. Remove grille.
3. Remove screws securing bulb holder.
4. Remove light bulb

Cooktop lights

1. Disconnect power to oven.
2. Remove lamp cover or remove screws securing bottom plate cover.
3. Disconnect lamps.

If your bulb is stuck or physically broken, it can be a pain. It's sometimes tacked in place with hot glue, and sometimes there may have been enough moisture to corrode and seize up.

You could heat it up (hair dryer, maybe?) then use needle nose pliers. Be careful if heating so you don't burn anything.

You may be able to put the tips of needle nose pliers inside the broken bulb's socket, gently but firmly force the pliers jaws apart and then rotate the pliers to loosen it.

Another cool trick is to put a big glob of hot glue on the end of a stick or dowel, then shove it into the broken base and let it cool about 5 minutes, then turn the stick.

I like to put a little WD-40 or rust buster on the threads of the new bulb, too. Grease, Vaseline, cooking oil, or anything like that will work. Just a thin coat.

The lamps are available at most grocery stores, hardware stores, home centers, and places like Wal-Mart and Lowe's.

If the unit uses halogen bulbs, do not handle them with bare hands, as oils from the skin make them run hotter and shorten their lives.
