Question about GE Profile Spacemaker Over-the-Range Microwave
A handyman replacing wall sockets/plugs in my kitchen caused a spark, now my microwave (GE spacemaker JVM1440WD) shows XXXXX in the control panel & no buttons work..as if there is no power. I tried resetting the circuit breaker and that did not work. What did he do? Is there an internal fuse? Help!
Even if there is an internal fuse, I doubt if that is the problem since as you posted, there is display albeit "XXXXX" which indicates that power is coming in. Should you still be interested, the fuse would normally be on the top right part inside an aluminum plate (air guide bracket) covered by the grill right above the door.
You can try a hard reset hoping that it is just a software glitch by unplugging from the mains for an hour or so to dissipate whatever electricity is stored inside. assuming ho hardware fault, this should revert the unit back into factory defaults.
If the fuse appears OK and the reset does not prove to be corrective, then it is likely that the electronic circuit board inside has been fried. Since this involves a bit of familiarity with electronic components and circuitry, use of a DVM and possibly soldering, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional. Alternately, should you venture a DIY, you could try asking for parts replacement and further instructions from here.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
