Reset the circuit breaker and microwave went on. Hit add 30 and it started. Hit cancel, opened the door and circuit blew again.

Model: JE2160SF01. It's 11 years old. I'm thinking it may need to be replaced. I have found a similar one at Home Depot for 339.

Before you replace the oven, check the in line fuse that's in a spring clamp inside the oven's control area. You can access the fuse by removing the cover panel, and tracing the colored wire that leads from the power cord terminal block to the fuse bracket. Replace the fuse, and before replacing the cover panel, plug the oven back into the wall receptacle to see if the oven comes to life.
