The microwave has an internal fuse called a ceramic, "white body with silver ends" unplug unit and allow it to discharge for 30 seconds, remove top "2 to 6 screws" locate back of keyboard and look towards for a silver rectangular capacitor, fuse should be near by! now remove it and take it to a Radio Shack Store or an Appliance repairman for the correct replacement. Keep in mind the door switch in some cases becomes defective causing the fuse to blow, you may need professional intervention to remedy the problem.

Litchenaid KEMC377KSS05 says DOOR and microwave wont start


follow the next step and use the common sense: God bless you
a stuck key or non-responsive key, most of the time you will have to replace the keypad for this microwave oven repair. If your keypad is connected to your control board by a flat ribbon wire, try disconnecting it and clean the silver contacts with an ordinary pencil eraser. After cleaning, plug it back in and try it. If it doesn't fix it, replace the keypad unit. Some units actually have keypad tests to confirm your diagnosis of a bad key.If your keypad and control is the same unit, replace that unit. Another note, unlike stove/oven keypads and controls, most microwaves do not have error codes or tests to distinguish whether it is truely the keypad or control. Most of the time, it is the keypad that needs replacing, but a small percentage of the time it can be the control. Check the tech sheet if they can point you to the right part.

The power just went off. tried unplug for 20 secs and plug again. tried the braker and plug. still nothing


Plug a lamp into the wall receptical, if it works! the main fuse in the microwave has blown. Unplug, and remove the top "several screws" check under the keypad and follow wires to the circuit board, look for a silver rectangular capacitor, take a screw driver and short the two points to remove any residual voltage. Now look for a small fuse "clipped" pop with screwdriver and replace with the same current rating, assemble unit because lethal voltages are present when powered on.

UNIT POWERS OFF AND DISPLAYS "F-9"


an inverter failure. This can sometimes by caused by a power surge or glitch through the electrical lines. You can sometimes clear this fault by completely unplugging the microwave for 1 minute. Plug it back in and see if the fault code returns. If it does, then you have an internal component failure that will need to be serviced by a technician. Microwaves must be serviced by technicians due to the inherent dangers involved in repairing these appliances. Internal capacitors can retain a lethal electrical charge even though the unit is completely unplugged. A microwave radiation leakage test must be performed on the unit following any internal component repair

GE Spacemaker Microwave Clock inop


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

Microwave resets when started


Could you explain what you mean by "resets similar to power cycle after 2 seconds of running"? Do the characters on the display get garbled, or is it like someone just unplugged the oven and plugged it back in? GE had a rash of "underperforming" magnetrons on several models. They would sometimes end up with stirrer damage, bad diodes, waveguide damage, and/or interference which "scrambles the brains" of the unit and makes them reset like they had been unplugged. The usual fix is to replace the magnetron, stirrer and high-voltage diode as a kit, and they used to cover this, but may not any more. Sometimes the unit gets run too long in a failing state and the waveguide and chassis of the oven get damaged. In that case, the oven would have to be replaced. To get the details and see if yours is affected, see this bulletin: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/ge_mw_mag_kit_bulletin.pdf Even if your exact unit is not on the list, you may have this problem. You can contact GE Customer Relations at 1-800-386-1215 and tell them your problem and they will put you in touch with a local authorized servicer. Feel free to post back if you need more info. I appreciate your thoughtful rating of my answer.

GE Spacesaver doesn't heat


if you are as lucky as i was...i have a ge spacesaver model jvm130...same problem. first unplug unit and check fuse on the "power control module". if fuse is ok...unscrew the screws holding the "power control module" in place...carefully tilt module and see if a solder joint needs to be re-soldered. my problem was the solder joint under the front plug (5 large wire plug). you may have to unplug the three connectors to the board to get access to bottom. this is the second time i had to re-solder...last one was several years ago though. best of luck tennisrme
