My 5-year old GE built-in microwave/oven stops working suddenly. It is a
combo unit with the microwave on the upper half and the oven on the lower
half. The oven still works but the microwave unit display went blank like
it does not get any power. My guess is the microwave fuse blew. I checked
the part diagram for this model (JKP69WW2WW) and it does have a fuse
inside. Since it is an inwall built-in unit, how do I access and replace
the fuse ? Do I need to pull the whole unit out ?
Any comments are greatly appreciated.
You need to know why it blew the internal fuse, if indeed that's
Just a thought: You *do* realize that the "bottom" half is likely
240VAC, and that the Microwave is likely 120V? The uWave could
be hardwired into a box, but it could just be plugged into an
outlet behind the unit. In either case, make sure you don't have
a tripped 120V breaker on the uW circuit. (Same bottom line still
applies, you'll need to investigate why it blew the breaker...)
