Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
The display is all asteriks and none of the buttons work. The fuse is OK but don't know what else to check. This happened when an electrician was putting in a new subpanel to our main box downstairs. None of the other appliances were affected.
This may seem strange but my microwave ended up doing the same thing..the solution courtesy of another website pointed toward RF interference from that faulty magnetron ge is famous for...what cure it was piece of the static paper used to protect computer parts..check it out by opening the side panel and leaning it away from the magnetron.mind started up immediately no problem ..got a piect of the static paper,fashioned it to fit...and problem solved

Either you have defected (weak) circuit breaker and wiring or bad Microwave oven.
The 99.99 % house hold Microwave ovens pull less than 15 Amps. They may have internal ceramic 15A fuse or 15 Amp internal circuit breaker.
To isolate your problem:
Plug your Microwave oven to different areas (different electrical circuit) if the different circuit breaker still trips... your Microwave oven has a short - Most of them has a small ceramic fuse 15 amps fuse.-also check some inter lock switches at door .
If the Microwave oven works Ok then you may have:
2a. You may overload the existing electrical circuit, try to unplug some other appliances
2b. You may have bad electrical outlet receptacle (Replace it with the same type , - may need helps from licensed electrician)
2c. Weak or defect house hold circuit breaker. (Replace it with the same type , brand - may need helps from licensed electrician)
