GE Space Maver MIcrowave

My GE Space Maker microwave stopped working today. I changed the fuse reset the clock and thought it was fixed but when I try to cook it starts and then blows the fuse again. This is the internal fuse 20amp 250volts.It is an overhead model with exhaust fan and does make a kind of wierd noise when it starts almost like a bad or jammed motor. It does not have a carousel. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

If it blows the fuse as soon as you hit START, you probably have a high voltage capacitor shorting. If it blows a fews secondfs after you press START it probably has a bad high voltage transformer. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety & disassembly info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 You might also double-check the magnetron. The technical sheet inside the oven shows you how to check it.

No power - blown fuse?

If it was run without the fan a thermal protect device was more than likely taken out. Check for that and replace the fan.

JNM1541 GE Space Maker

If it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty.

I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free or better still, if you've had it less than 30 days, I'd have the dealer replace it.

GE Customer Service is here.

It sounds like the door or door switch mounts are misaligned. It may have been damaged in shipping.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
