Hello,
It very well could be a blown fuse. I assume you checked power at the plug and checked the breaker. Also I assume and over the range micro. To get to the fuse you need remove the grille above the door then you should see a screw holding the control panel in place. Remove that screw and tip the panel out and you should see the fuse ( sometimes two) just inside the cabinet. remember to unplug or turn off the breaker before doing any repairs. you can goto - http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action - to find a parts breakdown and order parts. Good Luck

My old GE Spacemaker II microwave (JEM21K001) died. I was using it, heard a little pop, and it lost all power. Is this something simple to fix like replacing a fuse or is it bulk trash at this point?


HELLO.

take on these steps to solve the problem.

Check if there is electric power on wall outlet.

If the microwave plug has fuse,check if it has not burnt.if these are okay there is need to take the last step.

things needed
1.Screwdriver
2.Ohmmeter
3.New fuse

1. Unplug the microwave from the electrical outlet to prevent electrocution. Place the microwave in a well-lit area to be able to locate the fuse.

2. Use a screwdriver to remove the outer cabinet of the microwave, and follow the power cord to the fuse. The fuse is located 2 to 3 inches within the microwave and is attached to the power board.

3. Observe the fuse to determine if it is blown. Blown glass fuses will produce burn marks on nearby surfaces, or the internal fuse wire will be black and melted, while ceramic fuses show no outward appearance of being blown.

4. Determine if a ceramic fuse is blown by testing it with an ohmmeter. If the ohmmeter reads zero ohms, your fuse is not blown. Other readings on the ohmmeter show that your fuse is blown.
5. Replace the blown fuse by popping it out of its holder, and snapping a new fuse in its place. Tighten the fuse clips by squeezing them together with your fingers.

6. Replace the outer cabinet of the microwave, and plug the microwave back into the electrical outlet. Test the microwave to see if it's working properly.

Thanks.

I have a GE over range microwave. It work fine until one day the power goes out n nothing seem to work. Could it be a blown fuse or it's time to replace a new one. Thanks


first check the fuse in the plug, if thats ok, then there is a fuse in the microwave itself that could have blown, have that checked out first.

It does not get hot nor does the table turn, it is 3 yers old. Can it be repaired or is there an emergency switch to turnit off if it gets to hot that I can reset? It is Fridgidaire over the range with a...


Thank you for using FixYa,
There is no emergency switch to turn the microwave off if it gets too hot, but there are several fuses inside which may have "blown". If nothing is working at all i.e. no light , no turntable, no heat it sounds like the main fuse has gone. With the outer casing off, follow the main power cord into the microwave and within about 5 or 10 cm from where the cord enters there should be a fuse ( generally glass) the size of the fuse will be printed on the end caps of the fuse.

Well worth repairing.

Hope this helps

Power quite one day it lost power like curcuit broke there is power to the outlet


If there was a power outage, and then your microwave oven never came back on. Then it could be a possible fuse problem. If the circuit breaker had tripped, then after you turned off the cir. brkr. and turned it back on, then everything should've worked fine. Again, I would lean towards a blown fuse in your microwave. Now you're saying there's power to the outlet, and it still won't go on? Then my easy solution would be to plug it into another outlet, and try it again. Your problem could be that plug. After doing everything I just suggested, at any time did you get a digital readout on your time display in the upper right hand corner of the oven. Basically, is there any lights on at all when you're plugged into the wall. If not, then the problem is in the microwave itself! It could be just as simple as a blown fuse, but I would like you to try these other alternatives first. Feel free to contact me again if these don't work. Good Luck, and I hope I've helped you some. Let me know, Jim

No power to microwave


Hi

When your microwave oven doesn't work at all, it means interior fuse inside the microwave has blown (usually a part inside the microwave makes this fuse blow). Sometimes a bad fuse holder inside the microwave cannot hold the fuse tight enough and the fuse will blow as well. If the fuse isn't the problem, check the door hooks and the door-release button. When these are broken, the door switch doesn't activate, so the oven can't work. It can also be due to a stuck or faulty door switch which might have blown the interior microwave fuse.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Microwave stopped working


All you have to do is locate the fuse, and then check for continuity, or measure ac current on both side of the fuse. If ther is 120vac on one side and none on the other side then it is blown.

My maytag microwave lost power


There is always a fuse inside a microwave.Sometime this has only blown due to a surge,and upon replacing, the microwave will continue working.If it is something worse the fuse will continue to blow.In this case it could very well be the transformer,but there are other possible causes as well.(for example the control board or a short.)

NO POWER


Most likely have blown a fuse , get behind the touchpad to ohm the fuse out , replace if blown , if continues to blow check componets for shorts , there will likely be signs of burnt parts.

Q - My microwave went dead when I opened the door ( same problem as closed the door ).
A - This often is a stuck or faulty door switch and it has blown the interior microwave fuse.

A - House fuse has blown or interior fuse inside the microwave has blown ( usually a part inside the microwave makes this fuse blow ) Sometimes a bad fuse holder inside the microwave cannot hold the fuse tight enough and the fuse will blow as well. 
Q - My microwave blows the fuse inside itself as soon as I push the start button.
A - Usually a shorted high voltage capacitor...see components section.
Q - I burnt something in my microwave and now it is dead...help!
