I was cooking bread in my GE Profile over the stove top

Customer Question
I was cooking bread...

I was cooking bread in my GE Profile over the stove top Microwave/convection (6 years old) and it just died, nothing. we checked all fuses and outlets, they were all good. Is there a fuse in the microwave itself? Can this be serviced and fixed or is it a lost cause?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

6 yrs old - model PVM1790DR1BB

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If it is just a fuse.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No, again is there a fuse inside the unit itself?

Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

There is a fuse inside mounted on the Noise Filter Board and the fuse is replaceable, and its likely that is the fuse that is blown. You will have to disassemble the unit in order to access the fuse. See image below for location of board with fuse :

Here is a video showing how to disassemble the unit in order to access the board - click here for video

The video is a video showing how to replace the magnetron which I know you don't need to do but it shows how to take it apart.
