SOURCE: The food in the microwave is not heating up I have

Fuses seldom just go bad on their own, but it's safe to replace. Before you replace the fuse, squeeze the tabs of the fuse holder clips together a bit. Sometimes they don't grip the fuse tightly enough, and this can cause heating which damages the fuse. If the fuse blows again there is a bad part in the oven that will need to be located and replaced. For a small countertop oven, it's probably more economical just to replace the oven than to repair it.

GE Spacemaker microwave JVM140G just stopped working - no power, no lights, no exhaust - NOTHING Is there an internal fuse? The circuit breaker is not tripped.


NO internal fuse. It is most likely, the magnetron, and or High power diode. As related In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. or a fault that is shutting the system down for safety reasons You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man. Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

Our Sanyo Microwave Oven barely 14 months old refuses to heat anything.The electrics are fine, the Clock works and the turntable turns. I have requested help from your customer services and Argos from whom...


HI. in most cases, this will lead to a failed Heating device(magnetron tube).It would be wise to check the Magnetron cutoff fuse to be sure of its integrity. if the fuse is blown, simply replace it. if the fuse continues to show continuity, replace the magnetron.

(((The fuse is located inside the unit along side the magnetron. You will need to remove the cover to expose the magnetron, and other components. I recommend calling for a service tech if you are not an experienced electrician. You will need to test the cut-off fuse to confirm magnetron failure.)))
