Open the Micro door, and remove the air/Vent cover on the top if there is one, Usualy 2 screws on top or the middle of the cover.
Remove the screw holding the Controller board and then you will have access to the door switches 2-3 of them depending on Manif.

Also make sure you have the power unpluged befoe you do any of this.

Good luck!

sounds like the control board, but most times the magnetron fails and if a fuse failed then it needs a capacitor too

Hotpoint RVM1435 when I push start button will not start unit?


Hello :

It could be bad door switch or loose door switch mount . There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly .


WARNING : A microwave oven is capable of giving you a serious electrical shock, even when it is unplugged. I strongly recommend you seek the assistance of an appliance repair technician when conducting any microwave oven repair .

good luck .

please rate !

Microwave has power turn table works won't heat hotpoint model rvm1435bd 001


Check your door satey interlock switches.

If these switches fail (do you open the door while the machine is cooking?), the microwave doesnt know the door is shut and will not turn on the magnatron.

If you need more help, let me know.

Melted turntable support


Yes, that's part # WB06X10138 (coupler) and you can get it here.

You will need to remove the bottom cover of the microwave and remove the turntable motor to get the new coupler in.

JMC7000ADW Blows circuit breaker


I've had this problem twice with our microwave. The hint to where the problem lies is that the breaker blows when you open the door at times. Inside the microwave are three microswitches; primary and secondary interlock micro switches and an Interlock Monitor switch. The switches are supposed to shut down the microwave if it is running and the door is opened. But, I've found the upper primary switch can stick internal at times and when the door is opened the stuck switch will, because of the way it is wired as a safety switch, cause either the fuse or possibly the main circuit breaker for the oven to pop. The reason the stuck switch blows the breaker or fuse is when the door is opened the interlock switch will cause the neutral wire from the AC power to be applied to the Upper Primary Interlock switch which normally should be open when the door is opened, but if the switch is intermittent or the contacts weld themselves shut the neutral line is connected direct to the "hot" side of the power line through the fuse and thermostat. The first time my microwave failed the switch had melted the contacts together inside the switch and the second time the switch became intermittent and would blow the breaker to the over ever so often. I suspected the switch the second time this happened and utilizing an ohm meter I checked the switch several times by opening and closing the door and once in a while it would remain closed instead of opening when the door was opened. Of course while trouble shooting the power cord to the microwave must be disconnected and use all safety precautions when working around the high voltage areas inside the microwave. I wrote Jenn-Air about the bad switch and the way it is wired into the circuit, but never received any acknowledgement. I suspect these microswitches are under rated for the amount of current that passes through the switch, thus they overheat and eventually arc the contacts together. I hope this helps explain the intermittent problem and could explain many of the intermittent blown fuse problems I see in these internet help sessions

JVM2050 Doesn't cook food sometimes


Not the magnetron if intermittent. Probably a bad smartboard. Easy to replace if you know the basic precautions to take.
