Question about Jenn-Air JMC8127DD Microwave Oven
Highly likely your microwave has "failed".
Down inside the microwave is a part called the Magnetron. This is the part, (about the size of your fist), that makes the sound waves to cook the food.
On some models, it can fail, whilst all the other stuff works.
1) You need a fuse replaced.
2) You need a capacitor replaced (That part "starts" the magnetron) or
3) you need a new magentron.
In any regard, very often people will not opt to have it repaired, because the labor & parts can cost more than a new Microwave.
God bless your efforts.

Fan turned on after cooking because a thermostat got to hot and tripped turning on the fan to try to cool the unit. The unit went completely dead when thermal fuse tripped which is located above the cavity on the left side.

SOURCE: GH7145XFB-1 not heating properly
Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:
- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose conneciton on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part

yes, at the back of the microwave there are 4 or 6 screws, take them out and then pull the cover follow the cable( the one you connect to the outlet) going to the inside of the microwave inside you will see the fuse change it with the same size, it is a slow burn fuse

It's possible the magnetron tube, the microwave source, has gone bad, or one of the parts in its power supply has failed. There may be bad connections on the control circuit board, or the board itself is not working properly. One of the door interlock switches may be bad or is out of adjustment. The most frequent cause is the magnetron, particularly is you've had the oven for a while and it's gotten lots of use. Just like in a light bulb, wires in the magnetron can burn out, and one day the oven just quits heating.
Because of hazardous voltages present and the chance of microwave leakage if repairs aren't done correctly, you should leave servicing to a professional. A service shop can diagnose the problem and give an estimate. Or you can look at new ovens, which is often a more economical choice. The magnetron is the most expensive part to replace; between the part cost and labor charge, it's often not much more to buy a new oven. Sometimes a new oven can even cost less.
Hope this helps you decide what to do. Thanks for using Fixya!
