    could only find 15 amp...clock & micro worked but blew quickly...do you think finding correct 20 amp would make a difference?

  • jane brown Jun 03, 2007

    if the magnetron tube is defective would that cause the fuse to blow?

    tried 20 amp and it blew...it was not an appliance fuse...would that make a difference?

It could be a bad in-line circit breaker fuse. Unplug the microwave and take the outside cover off. Look for the in-line circuit breaker fuse. Use a plastic fuse puller (not your hands or a metal tool as there is still voltage stored in the microwave even when it is unplugged). Look at the fuse and see if it is blown. (The metal wire running length of tube will be broken. If you have one, test with an Ohmmeter.

Power failure on ge wes1130

Power being interuppted could be anything from a bad fuse , bad fuse holder, bad solder connections on the main board. Bad breaker in your panel. Start by plugging it into an outlet you know is on a different breaker than the on it is on now. See if it does the same thing. If it works ok, then problem with power to the other outlet. If it does the same thing problem inside of unit. PF is Power Failure, now we have to figure out why.

    I have a GE Spacemaker microvave oven that was working perfectly for the past 4 years. When installed, we were told that the outlet did not work, so to get the microwave working, the cord was pulled out...

    Perhaps the microwave's main supply fuse has blown.Open the cover & check it in the power supply section.Be careful & discharge the big capacitor first as there is very very high voltage present inside even after switching off.

    Microwave won't turn on. Seems like it is not getting power. I checked breaker. I am looking for a fuse. You know where one is? It is a GE Spacemaker(2 yrs old) model # JVM1440WH04

    • Make sure that the microwave is plugged into a grounded outlet. It must be a 3-prong outlet.
    • Make sure the clock is set.
    • Check to see if a programming sequence was entered. Sometimes improper programming or a program sequence such as delay start can cause the touch panel to be non-responsive. Unplug microwave or turn off house circuit breaker for 30 seconds. Plug back in, or reset circuit breaker, and try reprogramming unit.
    • Check the house circuit breaker or fuse box. If the microwave is DEAD and there is no display and nothing works- the problem could be a blown fuse or tripped breaker.

    Touch control failed on GE Spacemaker Microwave HVM1540

    If you want to order a touch pad, (it has the micro computer built in it!) and fix it that way, you'll still have a 2-3 year old machine.
    I would say it would be quicker and cheaper to buy a new one.

    GE PROFILE SPACEMAKER P/NO 8114-334-730 MICROWAVE TOTALLY DEAD!

    Sorry Seanna, but I have been getting a lot of problems with GE microwaves. You can call customer care at 800-432-2737, but out-of-warranty repairs are very expensive. Sounds like your problem may be door latch circuitry which requires service. If your unit is old, consider replacing it as prices are very reasonable.

    New spacemaker microwave lost power. checked the outlet for power, it is good but no power to the micro.

    Being new, it would be under warranty, so I would contact GE Customer Service at http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/contact/
