Question about Jenn-Air JMV8000 Microwave Oven

Open Question

Jenn-Air microwave M166. Hit the start button after setting time for heating something and oven makes a growling noise for about a second before going dead. Fuse was blown so replaced. Same thing happened again. This is a built-in so am looking to repair rather than replace.

SOURCE: home warranty company saying JennAir M166 built in microwave isn't a true built in

Bottom line is... Home warranty companies will do anything possible to wriggle out of paying for something. (Especially if it's American Home Shield).

I'd suggest offering to fax / email photos and the front cover of your owners manual. Your model is 100% considered a built in unit and they are lying to you and trying to cheat you if they say otherwise.

SOURCE: Jenn-Air Microwave - no power

Had the same problem. Removed the unit (snapping off the upper and lower trim rings was a chore but they do snap off) and tested the power. Plug behind the unit was good. Pulled the cover and checked the thermal fuse with ohm meter. No good. Replaced fuse, microwave would run for a second, then light goes dim and it buzzes, then it blew the fuse. Per above suspected Capacitor. Changed that, and we are back up and running. Thanks!!

Look for a reset button on the back--push to reset. If trips again, unit has probable short.

    How do I fix a Jenn-Air JMC7000 that does not heat up items?


    The noise is coming from the high-voltage transformer being overloaded by something shorting it out. Either the magnatron or the high-voltage capacitor and diode. Replace the capacitor and diode then if still not working, replace the magnatron. Its only affordable if you do it yourself - buy the part on EBAY - lookup "universal magnatron"
    Hope ya fix it!
