I would remove the outter shell and check the glass fuse inside next to the power converter.

How do you stop, reset or change the remaining time on the Timer on the GE JES1142 microwave? Pressing Clear/Off does nothing. Do you just have to wait for the timer to run out? Manuel is wrong even on how...


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.

If the timer counts down and nothing else happens, the secondary interlock switch is bad. This switch completes the cook circuit and this is why it doesn't run. You need an ohm meter to diagnose and find the right switch. Switch failure is caused by opening the door when it is in cook mode. Push the stop button first before opening the door and this failure will cease to occur. BE CAREFUL !!

Vent blower won't stop


I had the same problem with the fan not wanting to shut off after the repair. Once I set the clock though I was able to push the button to shut the fan off. So try setting your clock first and see if that helps.

The microwave doesn't have power


Sounds very much like the magnetron is at the end of its life , if everything else on the oven is working but you don't get that familiar hum as the magnetron kicks in and I am afraid they can cost as much as a new oven especially with the repair cost , time to go to the store and get a new one it will probably be cheaper ...
