Where is the fuse located and how do you replace it?
My GE profile microwave stopped dead during operation. I have checked the plug and I have power at the outlet.
I do not have any display or lights.
It depends on the type of machine. -- If you have a counter top model you need to remove the screws that secure the top and sides. Normally there are 2 screws on each side and 7 to 8 screws along the back edge. Once you remove the cover, on the side, behind the control panel, near the top, you will find the fuse block. -- If you have a model that hangs above the stove you need to remove the grill that runs along the top. There are 2 screws approx. 1/3 the way in from each edge. Remove the grill, then look for 1 screw above the control panel. The control panel top will then tilt out. you should be able to see the fuse block.
Make sure that you have more than 1 fuse(at least 2 or 3). This is important because usually there is a fault which causes the fuse to blow. My first fix had a cockroach on the capacitor. Easy fix, but I did not see the problem until after I blew the replacement fuse.
WAS it the little fuse or the thermal fuse???should I buy Both
The thermal fuse is not the same as the line fuse. You can ohm out the thermal over heat protector, if it is bad replace it. Usually you can visually check the 120V glass fuse. If the element is broken it's bad. A fuse pulling tool makes getting it out easier but usually you can just pull them with your fingers or gently pry it out with a screwdriver. Just don't break the glass. Hope this helps.
Generally, I find that you have to take off the side panels to get to the circuits where the fuse is, if there is a fuse. The circuit panel should be right where the plug goes into the microwave.
I apologize for any misspellings and whatnot. I'm on my iPod touch
I found out that it's not always the fuse that is the problem. I have a GE above counter microwave that the lighting and pad worked but the heating unit wouldn't come on. Well the first thing I did was to remove the fuse which shut everything off. so I put it back in. Then all of a sudden the fan started up. In a nut shell, I'm convince that the problem was in my door sensor. I wiggled the door and now my microwave works. So before you think that your microwave isn't worth fixing, try this trick, you just may save yourself some money!
I cant find the fuse for ME21H706MQG
After you get the cover off follow the power (black) wire from where the cord enters. Just keep on that wire and you will see a glass fuse. It is usually very close to where the power enters the machine. Just a note, opening the door too fast will often blow the fuse. It is designed to do that. Because of that the fuse can blow without there being any other bigger problem. If there is a bigger problem when you replace the fuse it will blow again.
I have a Profile JVM290. I cant locate the fuse or figure out where the power cord enters the unit. The schematic shows it's near the high voltage capacitor but I done know what one looks like.
I can't believe no one has said anything about do not touch the capacitors especially if it still has power running through it if it's been unplugged for a few days or so you know it's fine but like on an AC unit it's much stronger and will jolt your ass, could kill you. On a microwave or fridge not as bad.
Model JVM1360EF1ES MODEL over the stove. The glass fuse is in the top. The thermal fuse in the bottom

I had this issue on n the over the counter GE cafe microwave.
Remove the MW, remove the top cover and there should be a wiring diagram taped somewhere on the top or side. The fuse was easy tosspot if you even if you have limited electronic background. I ordered the part on Amazon for a couple of bucks and it solved the problem. Before I attempted to make the repair I called several appliance repair companies and they said it wasn't worth repairing. I think a $350 MW is worth repairing and Idid for about $3. Good luck

JUM3160RE model, fixed it from the front door, over stove model. Open the door, pull out the top vent (2 screws on top of microwave) carefully remove it starting on the right side. On the far right there is a 2"x4" grille panel and behind it looks like a PCB with a fuse on it. 2 more screws and you can remove the grille (it does come out, takes a little futzing with). My hand was too big to reach in and pull the fuse, needle-nose pliers worked to get it out. Getting a new one in is harder but doable. I forgo putting the 2x4 grille back in since my door switch blows the breaker outside. For now I push the stop button before opening the door :(
I did everything to avoid pulling it down again, that's a pain.

My microwave died and I replaced the fuse and all lights started to show. But when I put a cup of water inside and tried to heat it, then the fuse got burned out right away. What other part do I need to replace? A capacitor?

Mine did the same thing I am thinking start capacitor. Have not checked it yet.
