Replace a fuse on GE Profile model jvm1871SH02


Unplug microwave or shut off house breaker. Remove grill or cover that goes across the top of door and control panel.Remove screw that holds control panel on and lift up on control panel. It will tilt downward and has 2 tabs at the bottom that go into slots. It can be lifted out of those slots.The fuse should be seen at the top area in the microwave behind where the control panel was mounted. Fuse is usually small 1/4 round type fuse like old type car fuses that were glass but the micro fuse will be either a white of gray ceramic fuse not glass. Some are 15 amp some are 20 amp. Usually stamped on end of fuse.

My microwave turned off with no display and i have made sure all the breakers are on.... what else could be the problem? GE profile XL1800


It may be the internal 20A fuse or a thermal cutout (TCO) on top of the oven cavity or mostly likely the one attached to the magnetron.

These models do not use a "screw-on" type fuse (whatever that is - a "guru" after 46 votes?!), it will be a 6x30mm ceramic type and it simply snaps into the fuse holder.

Being a GE, there should be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when locating components and troubleshooting, and testing.

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.

Since you mention Profile XL1800, that means the all-important model number from the tag in or on the unit would probably be something like JVM1861WB001, etc.

Using the actual model number, you can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts here.

Accessing some parts may require you to pull the oven from the wall and remove the 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.

I have a GE microwave that simply stopped working.


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 / body of the oven.

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.

My GE Profile Microwave/Convection Oven stopped working.


Chances are that the thermostat / thermal cutout / T.C.O. (whichever it uses) has opened.

This can happen when the magnetron overheats, either due to it's failing, or if the internal cooling fan is not working.

It may also that be the 15- or 20A ceramic line fuse or the oven cavity thermostat / thermal cutout / T.C.O. (whichever it uses) has opened.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

You should be able to get the fuse from a home center or local appliance parts store.

Ge spacemaker microwave jvm1630bkc


it is just behind the front top grill on the right. The plastic grill that goes accross the entire top of the front of the unit. Then behind it on the right is a small power board that has the ceramic fuse on it.
remove 2 srews from top of microwave that hold the top of this plastic grill in place.
Then slide the grill to the left or right (I don't remember which way). Now the grill will come out.

The fuse is usually the secondary issue. Most often, it is the cavity TCO that goes out. This is the thermo-coupler that breaks the main power circuit if the inside of the mocrowave gets over 100 degrees C. requires taking the unit down and taking the cover off.

My Ge SpaceMaker XL1800 Microwave Oven won't power on any more.


1.Check power outlet for working.
2.If it is than you have broken fuse inside the m/w.
3. To change the fuse you have to disconnect the power to m/w, take the upper grill off, take the screw on top of control panel, lift the control panel up and removed. The 20 Am fuse located behind this panel.

It's probably the thermostat / thermal cutout (TCO) mounted on the magnetron or the cavity.

Be sure the end caps of the fuse are not loose. That can fool you.

Microwave Fuse keeps blowing


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.
