1. Unplug the microwave. The plug is probably in a receptacle that is in the cabinet above the microwave, or in the wall above the shelf that is above the microwave.

2. Remove the two (or three) screws that go straight down through the bottom of the cabinet, or the shelf, into the top of the microwave. Have help in holding the microwave when you do this, as the front of the microwave will be able to fall down when the screws are removed.

3. Allow the front of the microwave to rotate down a little, then lift the back of the unit up about 1/2" to 1". At this point, the microwave will be disconnected from the mounting plate on the wall, so you can move it forward and carry it away.

SOURCE: GE microwave oven - just stopped stopped working

A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout (TCO) / thermal fuse on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the magnetron thermostat to open.

Then when it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

When checking thermostats, if it has a hood fan thermostat, that should read open, as opposed to the others, which should read closed.

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

If it goes dead or blows the breaker when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

If it's intermittent or random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or a loose fuse holder, or even an intermittent fuse.

You should do a continuity test on the fuse while it's in the holder (with the microwave unplugged, of course) then turn the fuse by hand or take it out and put it back in, then test it again.

If you remove the fuse, then press the meter leads against the ends, it can allow internal contact to be made and make a bad fuse appear to be good.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

NOTE: There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

First you have to unplug your device. Next you must remove the cover from the micowave. Follow the powe cord to the unit the fuse should be right at the beginning of the powe cord. I hope yhis will help you.

If the top of it butts aginst your cabinets you will have to take the bolts from the inside of your cabinets around the front area that that are holding it up out (use 2 people) once they are out it "should" still hang there, next step slowly lift it an inch or so (then you will be no longer on the back suppot) again use 2 people, then you can pull straight out. hope this is what you are looking for.

While changing the light bulb under the unit, the wire connected to the light bulb holder touched the metal housing and totally blew out the microwave so it doesn't work.


normally there is a glass fuse in the circuit where the power comes in
check that fuse/ replace if necessary
As silly as it sounds --turn the equipment of at the wall before you work on it as it might have been you that blew and not the fuse

Location of fuse


The fuse should be on the right side of your microwave ,looking in front of the oven. You need to open it and you will see it.

I have a GE Spacemaker XL1800 Adora Microwave (manufactured in 2004) and the light bulb went out but I can't located it to replace it. Where is it located? Thanks


If it is meant to be user replaceable, then your owner's manual will cover it.

If not, then you may need to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

Either way, you can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, & testing.

Microwave, adora, stopped heating


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Almost always, on most microwave including GE Adora, no heat with all else working indicates a problem with the magnetron. Since the magnetron produces high RF energy and operates on high voltage, it would be to your advantage to seek the services of a qualified professional.

If on the other hand, the fault of no heat is coupled with no display, error messages, door not locking, no light, then it would be possible for a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair. All that is required is a bit of familiarity with electronic components and circuitry, the use of a DVM/VOM of course safe working practices when repairing electrically powered devices.

Pls post back any other symptoms or indicators other than 'no heat'.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
