Product Description

FUSE Specifications

This ceramic microwave fuse is just over an inch in length. It is white in the center, and metal on both ends. This is a 20-amp fuse, and is used to power your microwave. If the touch pad on the microwave becomes unresponsive, the microwave produces little to no heat, or the appliance simply does not turn on, it could mean that your fuse is at fault and needs to be replaced. Because this part contains an electrical charge, remember to disconnect power to the microwave unit before you begin this repair. NOTE: Before you start this repair, ensure that the microwave is unplugged, and the capacitor is discharged. A capacitor stores large amounts of electricity even after your microwave is unplugged.

Microwave only comes on for 8 seconds then shuts off.. pf is on control panel. could it be fuse inside microwave?
For model number JES1451DS1WW
Hello Sue, thank you for your question. The PF indicates a power failure within the unit. We would recommend testing the following parts for continuity. THERMOSTAT Part Number: WB24X10163, THERMOSTAT Part Number: WB27X11100, and FUSE Part Number: WB27X10928. If those parts are fine, the issue is probably with the main control board. I hope this helps!

The microwave just died and has no light or display. Power is good at the outlet. I suspect the fuse but not sure. Do you have any replacement instructions for fuse replacement?
For model number JVM6175SK3SS
Hello David, Thank you for the question. The fuse is located on the top right of the microwave near the front. Accessing it will require the top and side panel to be removed if it can not be viewed from the front. If you are not familiar with Microwave repair we suggest a repair man. The Microwave can hold a charge even when not plugged in and will need to be discharged before the repair. We hope this helps!

My microwave comes on but does not heat.
For model number JVM1440BD 003
Hi Mary, Thank you for your question. If your microwave is not heating, there are some parts that you will need to check to see which one is causing the issue. You will need to check the fuse, the door switches, the high voltage diode, the magnetron, the hood thermostat and the thermal fuse. We have included a link that you may reference on how check these parts. We hope this helps! Good luck with the repair!

I have replaced the fuse 20A on my microwave and it keeps blowing out right away. Can you let me know what I’m missing or what I’m doing wrong with please? Thank you
For model number JVM3160RFSSS
Hello Frank, Thank you for the question. This is normally caused by a defective Door Switch. There are three switches in the appliance Lock area. You will need to test each switch to check the continuity. When the defective switch is activated, it can trip the breaker or blow the fuse. We hope this helps!

October 18, 2021
Hi - our GE Advantium microwave (from 2012) suddenly showed a "Key panel SHORTED. Service may be needed" message on the screen and stopped working. Will this fuse repair that short, or is a whole new panel necessary? And is replacing the panel feasible as a DIY project, for a relatively handy person but with limited appliance repair experience? Thank you!
For model number ZSA1201RSS01
Hello Aaron, Thank you for the question. This indicates the Control Panel with the Keypad will need to be replaced. Microwaves can be tricky since they can hold a dangerous charge even if left unplugged for a period of time. It will need to be discharged to safely perform the repair. If you are not familiar with Microwave repairs, it is best to contact a repair man. We hope this helps!

The microwave above my stove has worked perfectly. (7yrs). I always use my night light in the evening. A few days ago, I went to turn off the light & the touch pad did not work to shut it off. With all other touch pad keys working, I had to get up on a ladder & pull the plug. We replaced the bulb with the same exact one & it worked for about a week & now the same problem is back. The light will not go off nor respond to the touch pad. We took the bulb out because obviously we needed to use the microwave. Can you give us an idea of what we should look for? Thanks
For model number PVM9179DFBB
Hello Irene, Thank you for the question. We suggest checking or replacing the Light Socket for the bulb. Make sure there are no lose or damaged wires causing a bad connection. If the Socket is good, you may have a defective Touch Pad. We hope this helps!

Microwave completely stopped working
Turned out the issue was easily solved by replacing a single, inexpensive fuse.

First off, UNPLUG THE MICROWAVE.

The fuse is located under the plastic grill at the top of the microwave. It's held on by two screws. Once you've removed the screws and taken off the plastic grill, you go to the right side of the microwave and remove another screw that holds a small metal grill in place. Removing the small metal grill is probably the toughest part of this repair. You kind of have to rock it back and forth a bit to get it to release. Once that's off, you can get to the fuse. I removed the burnt out one with a pair of needle nose pliers. I also put a small piece of cardboard under the fuse when I did this so I didn't accidentally drop it into the innards of the microwave. I did the same thing when I replaced the new fuse. I then plugged the appliance back in and made sure it worked. Once that was confirmed, I replaced both grills.

Suddenly had no heat. All else worked fine. A deep odd hum sound.

Touch pad failed to respond to any programming effort
Went to onlin source, found a couple youtube videos then went to the GE site which had a not-too-easy that find trouble shooting guide. It was extremely helpful as it described a fuse as a fix 80% of the time for touch paid failure. I really didn't believe it would b a fuse, but it was the cheapest fix, $8. I got the fuse and was surprised to fine there are two of them on this model. I took a guess and replaced the top one ( neither fuse was black or burned to indicate a failure but the top one was a bit mor greyish). put it all back together and it works fine.

Microwave was accidentally overheated and all power was lost.
Since I didn't know if it was the current fuse or the flame sensor, I ordered both parts, and, I had to order the tamper proof torx bits needed to remove the microwave cover ($7.45 on Amazon). Once the cover was off the unit, both parts were easily accessible on top of the oven and were replaced in only a couple of minutes.
