20 Most Recent Jenn-Air JMV8208A Microwave Oven Questions & Answers


I would first suggest checking the bottom door switch and its mount.

The full service / installation manual is here.

If it's not a switch issue, you may have a sticking relay on your control board, which can be economically repaired. Details are here.

There is a ceramic fuse located on the inside of the microwave oven, unplug unit remove cover "2 to 6 screws" allow 30 seconds for the high voltage to discharge, on the right side you will see a keyboard, to the left of that you should notice a silver capacitor rectangular in shape, fuse will be near by, "whitebody with silver ends" remove and take it to a Radio Shack Store or an Appliance repairman to properly size up. When you assemble, plug unit in, "remember there are dangerous high voltages if left exposed" so make sure the top is on before using.

take the unit down
open the top cover all the way out
some units have manual inside that tell you how to fix it but you will see all cutoffswitch

90% it is the Magnetron and by the way the unit have 4000v so be sure you know how to do it or ground the capacitor first!!
Magnetron coast only 80-120$

You already know it can be a costly mistake. Had it happen in my own home!!!!

Several things can be wrong:

1. The Fuse inside the unit
2. The High Voltage Capacitor
3. The Power Diode
4. (bad news) The Magnetron.

There is an RF window that can be bad also as when a microwave is run with no load it can be burned. It is supposed to help protect the Magnetron from reverse flow RF and help disperse the RF inside the unit.

The next question is: "Are you going to talke this by yourself or have it repaired?" We can you advise on what to do but there are some hazards that you need to be aware of if your going top give it a go..... Just reply here. Thanks.

This is a generic response to your comment

Look at the inside of the door, you will probably find a plastic strip which can be pried out. Underneath the strip, you will find the screws that hold the door together. The screws may be "torx" head.

Take pics of your door with your cell phone as you work and remember, most doors are spring loaded. Watgch your fingers.

Once the door is split open, replacing the handle should be a simple matter.

I hope this helps you
