Question about GE JVM1190SY/WY/AY/BY Microwave Oven

1 Answer

GE DIDN'T bring good things to life

Turned on the microwave and all power just went out. Checked the breaker panel, but none are tripped. Does this model have a fuse or something that controls all power to it? Model is from August 2001, and only gets moderate use.

If the fuse blew as soon as you hit START to begin cooking, chances are you have a shorted high voltage capacitor. If it blew a few seconds after hitting START, then it's more likely to be a defective high voltager transformer. You may notice a buring smell. It's also possible that you have a defective thermostat / thermal cutout on the magnetron (especially if the oven has ever been run empty, arced or sparked, or overheated). In cases where the internal fuse blows, there's usually a cause, even if it's just a loose fuse holder.

Tripped breaker while running, now it has no power

You would be better off replacing the microwave oven, it is at the end of life.To replace parts would easily cost more than a new item, plus prices have dropped considerably over the years.

Their is a chance that the power went out in the house. Also, chances are that it just broke.

You have a fuse behind the screen panel. You have screws inside the microwave holding the panel. you have 1-2 at the bottom. You may also have to remove the vent. It has 2-3 screws which will be inside the vent. These can be removed from the front. Once these are removed the panel will pop off and you will see the fuse The fuse can be bought at a radio shack. BE SURE TO UNPLUG THE MICROWAVE! Good Luck

GE Spacemaker Microwave JVM1441 BH04 tripping circuit breaker

your power transformer for the magnetron could have a shorted primary power winding,the door safety interlock switch could be mis-adjusted,this normally blows the internal unit fuse,a shorted high voltage capacitor,or diode,a bare wire inside the unit,more than the microwave on that circuit or a weak circuit breaker in the house power panel

Turned on the microwave and all power just went out. Checked the breaker panel, but none are tripped.

when you said the power went out ( did you mean to the micro or the complete hm . if only to micro it probably blew it internal fuse . they doo that . replace the fuse ( radio shack is a good place to get it .) but ck the door inter lock's as they may have caused the failure . ps buy more than one fuse / you may need more. **** ,,
