My JVM 1431 WA GE Microwave Works fine except for the 2 40 Watt lamps in the bottom of the unit. I have replaced the bulbs.
Could it be the PS 242167 Fuse? If so , how do I access that fuse on my microwave? Thanks.
With the microwave working the fuses would not have anything to do with the cooktop lamps not working. The lamps route through the control board and if the control board is not sending power then the board would need to be replaced.
Can you provide step by step instructions on how to install this 20 amp Fuse?
Answer Steven, remove the top vent grille 1. Disconnect oven power. 2. Remove Phillips-head screws (2) from grille. 3. Lift bottom of grille and push top of grille down to remove. Remove the control panel 1. Disconnect power and remove grille. 2. Remove I screw at top of control panel. Lift up on control to release tabs. 3. Disconnect grounding screw and connectors. 4. Lift up on control to release hinge from mounting screw (GE Models, others remove mounting screw). The fuse WB2X3910 and fuse holder WB06X10005 are located up near the ceiling of the opening, and can be removed and replaced.
Hi, My G.E. Spacemaker microwave has no power. The plug is in the outlet and the circuit breaker is fine. I suspect it is the 250v 20amp fuse. is there something else that might cause the appliance to go completely dark? Thanks, Martin
Answer Hello Martin,
If the fuse is blown, you need to check the following to prevent a repeat of the same issue. Check the interlock switches for the door, the monitor switch, the power relay (ry-2), the varistor, the power transformer, and the high voltage transformer. There should be a mini manual inside the unit with the specifications on the parts. If not or you should need any further assistance, please let us know.
