My GE microwave model JVM1750DM1CC - manufactured - Aug 2008

Customer Question

My GE microwave model JVM1750DM1CC - manufactured - Aug 2008 has no power. Over the stove model - control board or fuse? Went to heat cup of water, hit start and crackling noise - no odor. Outlet has power, display does not light up. No response to any buttons, no light in cavity when door is opened.

Anybody there to answer? I have been waiting for 25 minutes.

Sorry for the delay. Give me a few minutes to look that model number up.
Expert:  AppTech8579 replied 2 years ago.
Do you feel you can test the fuse with a multimeter as microwaves contain very high voltage even when unplugged?

Okay, watch this video to get to the fuse. Watch this video on how to test it. Let me know what you find.

I watched , I think that I would be unable to wrestle the unit in and out as there is only me. So, I'm calling a repair service. It would have been nice to have a video that told about the weight and tediousness of the job before I ask for personalized help. I could have saved money. I am willing to pay $5 for that but not more, and I cannot use the free week unlimited service so I will cancel that. As the responses were so long in coming, I could have had a guy in here today and be done with it. I'm not very happy at this point. What you provided would be helpful if I were to do it myself, but, as I said, I'm solo on the job and no one around who can help. No reflection on you personally, just not happy with the slow response and info.

Waiting long times between responses does not help either.
