Default GE Microwave Oven - Dead - does not turn on
Model Number: JE1423H   Brand: GE   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Oven does not do anything. No lights and does not turn on. Was working find hours before that. Checked Outside breaker which was ok.

Guessed it was the fuse. Took the fuse out.

Before I order it I just wanted to make sure that indeed the fuse is the problem.

How can I know for sure. The fuse is 250v - 15 Amps.

Check the fuse for continuity. If it is not blown, the problem lies elsewhere.

Question GE Microwave - blown fuse

Thanks for your reply.

As opposed to a normal fuse where you can see the glass and see if the fuse wire is disconnected, this one is all white in the middle so I can't tell if it has break in continuity?

Any suggestions on how to find out or does the "white" instead of transparent glass already means it is disconitnued?

Any other way to check this?

Either attach a jumper wire to the fuse holder terminals (very dangerous) and see if the microwave powers up; or test the fuse with a continuity tester or a meter, either of which is a very handy instrument to have around the house.

If you choose to go the jumper route, unplug the machine first, and realize that this is NOT a substitute for a replacement fuse. If you get power, replace the fuse. If you don't get power, the problem is probably in the control board somewhere.

Default GE Micro Wave Repair

I replaced the fuse. The Microwave turned on and the lights came on. THen I set a cook time and when I pressed the start button and it died again. I think I heard a slight sound (a electronic virbration sound).

Am not sure where or what causes this. Do you think it is the wrong fuse, the Mircorwave is shorting, is it the wall outlet shorting or is it something else?

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Feroze

Depending on the noise: It sounds like you may have a bad High Voltage transformer. This will often produce a deep growling noise. Can't be sure without further testing. You will need a decent (not expensive) VOM, or digital multi-meter, and some basic knowledge of how to use it.

If you are able and willing, we'll lead you through the diagnosis
