GE Microwave - Power Cord Appears to be Dead

I have a GE microwave in which the power cord appears to be dead. We tried plugging the GE microwave into another outlet & it still doesn't work. Is it worth it to get the power cord fixed/replaced or should I just buy a new one? Also, does the magnetron tube affect the power cord at all?

Most microwave ovens are equipped with an internal fuse. This is typically located where the power cord enters the cabinet. The cabinet will have to be opened to verify the fuse.

The magnetron is not directly attached to the power source, it has to be stepped up in voltage significantly, either through a transformer or inverter.

It is usually best to have professional tech check the fuse for operation. Most shops will do this for a small fee if you drop the unit off yourself.

Will not turn on . Appears as though there's no power.


I'd try to unplug for a while. Could be a bad power cord for the microwave itself. I recently had a toaster problem. Bad wire right at the departure from the plug.

The control panel of microwave dead. No lights on the panel. There is power to the outlet


If it worked after unplugging and reinserting, it is possible that there is a wiring problem with the plug and wiggling the wires "re-made" a connection. Try plugging in to another outlet to eliminate a dodgy outlet problem.

My countertop microwave stopped working. What was the problem? Can you help?


If it is completely dead, no light, motor or keypad, it's probally a blown line fuse. Open up the cabinet and you should be able to find a fuse near the power cord. An appliance supply house should be able to get you a replacement.

GE Sensor Microwave JES1855 died


Mine went dead after about 6 months. I had problems with my breakers and I found out that it was the microwave that blew all of them. I also found out that this perticular microwave is a fire hazard and should be recalled. It has caused me alot of headache. The breakers in my house are brand new and they are put out by GE also. It caused me to loose the food in my freezer, I did not know my freezer had lost power. It would cause my entire lights to go off and then they would come back on. I have checked around and I found out that the power cord on the back of the unit is very loose. I had a person to come in and look at it, he thinks its the power cord.
