No power; the microwave does not come on when plugged in. Is there a fuse in the microwave? (it is not the main or house circuit breaker.) The power input cord appears to be open when checked with a VOM. thanks

There is normally a fuse inside the microwave. Is there a fuse in the mains lead plug?. I don't know where you are but in the UK all plugs have a fuse fitted. If not it could be the one inside, but it's not something you should really attempt to change yourself. It really should go to a qualified microwave engineer.
Sorry I can't be more help but I'm more concerned with your personal saftey.

Blowing breaker


In general house hold circuit breaker of the house is 15 Amps or 20 Amps.

Either you have defected (weak) circuit breaker and wiring or bad Microwave oven.

The 99.99 % house hold Microwave ovens pull less than 15 Amps. They may have internal ceramic 15A fuse or 15 Amp internal circuit breaker.

To isolate your problem:

1. Plug your Microwave oven to different areas (different electrical circuit) if the different circuit breaker still trips... your Microwave oven has a short - Most of them has a small ceramic fuse 15 amps fuse.-also check some inter lock switches at door .

2. If the Microwave oven works Ok then you may have:

2a. You may overload the existing electrical circuit, try to unplug some other appliances

2b. You may have bad electrical outlet receptacle (Replace it with the same type , - may need helps from licensed electrician)

2c. Weak or defect house hold circuit breaker. (Replace it with the same type , brand - may need helps from licensed electrician)

You may have either too much also connected to that circuit or the wiring may be involved along with a circuit breaker that needs replacement--you would have to have an electrician look to see if load on it is within limits for what is connected or swap the breaker out with a correct one to see if the issue is the breaker or not.

GE Spacemaker Microwave JVM1441 BH04 tripping circuit breaker


your power transformer for the magnetron could have a shorted primary power winding,the door safety interlock switch could be mis-adjusted,this normally blows the internal unit fuse,a shorted high voltage capacitor,or diode,a bare wire inside the unit,more than the microwave on that circuit or a weak circuit breaker in the house power panel

How do you reset the microwave power? Is there an external circuit breaker if the main house circuit breaker did not switch off?


There is an internal cartridge fuse, as well as thermal fuses. It is not recommended that you attempt any internal repairs on a microwave due to the presence of very high voltages and the danger of microwave radiation if not reassembled correctly. Residential microwaves, if not under warrranty, are generally considered disposable. Parts and service are very expensive.

Microwave won't turn on. Seems like it is not getting power. I checked breaker. I am looking for a fuse. You know where one is? It is a GE Spacemaker(2 yrs old) model # JVM1440WH04


  • Make sure that the microwave is plugged into a grounded outlet. It must be a 3-prong outlet.
  • Make sure the clock is set.
  • Check to see if a programming sequence was entered. Sometimes improper programming or a program sequence such as delay start can cause the touch panel to be non-responsive. Unplug microwave or turn off house circuit breaker for 30 seconds. Plug back in, or reset circuit breaker, and try reprogramming unit.
  • Check the house circuit breaker or fuse box. If the microwave is DEAD and there is no display and nothing works- the problem could be a blown fuse or tripped breaker.

I believe you have a bad circuit breaker or fuse. If you have a delay fuse contrilling this circuit, that would explain the spotty availability of power to the outlet. Also, a faulty circuit breaker can operate in an irregular way, as you describe.
A microwave oven requires a lot of power, relatively speaking. If your microwave is a 1200 watt model, for example it draws 12 amps of power, which could well be almost all of the power available at that outlet, providing that other appliances were not also drawing power from that circuit at the same time.
I can assist you further, but if this information is all you need to proceed that is fine too. Get back if you need more assistance.

Microwave lost all power when I pressed start


Plug a lamp into the circuit where the Microwave is plugged in. If the lamp comes on then you know there is power supplied to the microwave and the problem is one of an internal nature. If your light does not come on then your breaker at the main power panel could have tripped. On each breaker is a number which is its rating in amps. Your Microwave may require a 20 amp circuit.
