Question:

How do you replace the line fuse? How do you discharge the capacitor before you replace the line fuse?

Bill for model number JVM3160RFSS
Answer:

Hello Bill, Thank you for your questions. Before doing any work on your microwave you would need to discharge the capacitor as it can be very dangerous. First you must unplug the unit, then if the capacitor is removable from the unit take take it out to prevent possible damage to the components of the microwave. Then ouch a device to the capacitor leads for several seconds. Doing this will provide a path for the electricity to go and discharge the capacitor. You can use a test light or light bulb. Once that is done replacing the line fuse is very easy as it just pops in and our like the older style glass car fuses. I hope this helps.

Question:

My touch pad seems to have a mind of it's own. It will get stuck on something and not let me turn it off. Sometimes when I unplug it and start over it's ok but that is not happening now. When I try to set the time it goes to timer. When I hit the 30 second exp it goes to popcorn. Is it fixable?

Question:

If the line fuse (ps239525 GE wb27x10388) is bad, will the touchpad number screen still light up (even though unresponsive)?

Peter Martinez for model number JVM2070SK02
Answer:

Hi Peter, Thank you for your inquiry. If your touchpad is not responding, the line fuse does fix the issue 80% of the time. Some other parts you may have to check as well are the secondary door switch, the key module and the filters. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Replaced fuse and everything turned on. Then tried to use it and it blew the fuse again

Robert for model number JVM1440BH01
Answer:

Hi Robert, Thank you for the question. The most common issue with the fuse blowing is the voltage levels coming from the High-Voltage Capacitor. It sounds like it is sending to many volts and causing the fuse to blow. Hope this helps!

My microwave turns "on" - only the fan, when I touch the keypad.However, the turntable and light don't turn on and it doesn't heat.It also does not shut off when I close the door.Is this just the fuse that needs to be replaced?

Question:

Unit will not turn off.

don kelley sr for model number SCA1000HWW03
Answer:

Hello Don, thank you for contacting us. If pushing the stop button does not turn off your microwave, try opening the door while it is still running. This should stop the operation of the microwave. If it does, the problem likely lies with your control panel, if it still runs with the door open it would be bad door switches. Hope this helps!

Question:

When i turn on the microwave the light comes on but it does not heat. Is this likely the fuse or something else?

Mark for model number PEB1590DM2BB
Answer:

Hi Mark, Thank you for your inquiry. 80% of the time it is the fuse that you will have to replace to fix the issue. You will need to also check the terminal micro switch, the magnetron, the diode cable and the capacitor. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

David for model number RVM1335WC001

Hi David, Thank you for your inquiry. Where the touchpad is not responding, the part that fixes the issue the majority of the time is the fuse. You may also need to check the secondary door switch to see which part is causing the issue. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

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.

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.
