It's possible the high-voltage capacitor is bad, but I suspect a bad interlock monitor switch. This is one of several switches operated by the door latches, and it's wired to cause the fuse to blow if you try to operate the oven with the door open. The switch may be stuck, which can happen if the oven door gets slammed. It's also possible the switch is good but is out of adjustment.

Replacement switches are available. The Sears parts website has an exploded diagram showing where it's located (item number 30). You should let a professional make the repair, though. Microwave ovens are dangerous items to work on, and if door repairs aren't done correctly there can be excessive microwave leakage.

How to change the fuse (can't figure out how to find it) in our JVM 1860 SF 001 GE microwave? help please


There is a 125V, 20 AMP line fuse inside the microwave. Its usually mounted on a small input line filter board at the point where the power cord enters the back of the unit. You will need to UNPLUG the microwave oven and remove the exterior case to access. The case comes off in various ways depending on manufacture and model. Searspartsdirect.com has some excellent exploded view parts illstrations you can use to assist you in component location and assembly:

If the model number is correct, the fuse is listed as item 74 in this parts illustration.


If you have any questions, or need assistance troubleshooting, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

NOTE: Make sure you take any resistance readings with the microwave UNPLUGGED and the component under test isolated (removed) from the circuit.

Panasonic Microwave NN-T993SF has no power. Was working and suddenly the power went out like it was unplugged. It is not our fuses or cord but something in the microwave itself. Is there a fuse or...


most microwaves do have an internal ceramic fuse either 15 amp or 20 amp the cover has to come off to locate it usually at the top just behind the control board. do not touch the high voltage capacitor as it holds a charge even when the unit is unplugged.

Sudden shut down.


Your in luck. With nothing working it's your fuse (20 amp). If the light was still working or anything else, it most likely would not be worth repairing. The fuse looks like one of the old round car fuses but it is not. It's a special 20 amp fuse made for micro waves out of ceramic. You can order them over the internet. One site is www.partselect.com. This is a part number for one that cost $3.84 PS2163369. You can use this number or if you can find you model number and enter it on the site. You can buy it with a credit card from them

No display on microwave touchpad for ge Model JKP62G


The GE JKP62G Microwave / Oven combination has an internal fuse behind the control panel for the microwave. The oven will operate but the microwave will be totally dead (no light, no clock). Turn off the breaker for the oven at the fuse box (30 Amp double breaker). In order to replace the fuse you will have to open the door to the microwave, remove the two screws (Torx) from the front control panel (located on the left edge of the control panel), wiggle the panel to the left (there are two metal tabs that stick into the metal frame of the microwave on the right of the panel) and then tilt the panel down from the top. There is a metal bracket that holds the control panel to the microwave at the bottom (don't remove it). Look towards the top of the microwave inside the area behind the control panel and you will see a 15 Amp screw in fuse. Replace the fuse and that should fix your problem.
