Convection/Mirco oven

My GE profile sensor convection in my '99 Dolphin just quit. I of course checked breakers, GFI and EMS says all circuits are available. I haven't yet checked the connections in the breaker box yet.

The only reason I am posting this is the vent fan and stove top light (120v) on the unit also do not work. I can understand a 13 year old oven failiing, but for the vent fan and light not to work points me to an internal fuse or breaker. Of course, it may be since the oven is down, it may not operate these.

I probably won't get into this until Wednesday, just wondering if anyone has had experience like this, have had theirs apart, or worse case senerio, what did you replace it with? Thanks!

Check right where it is plugged in and see if there is voltage there. Mine is plugged into a little surge protector and if you have one of them it could of failed. Your light and fan both should still work.

Well, at this point any 120v connection is burried behind the whole unit (I have to assume the unit is hardwired to the circuit). I will have remove the whole unit to see any connections. I have not yet removed the vent filters or light fixture to see if there is a visable 120v connection for the whole unit.

When our GE died, everything died. We had a power surge. (Another story)

Micro dead

Stupid thought.....have you checked the GFI circuit(s) in the kitchen yet? Hoping that it is that simple.

Happy Trails!

Check the GFI and other AC sockets first, then look for a panel you can remove to get to the socket the Micro/Convection unit AC plug should be plugged into. Mine has a wood panel that is held on with Velcro. It could even be the GFI in the bathroom or bedroom that has tripped.

Already checked the GFI and confirmed the only 120v item down is the oven. I do know it's on it's own circuit.

I'm going to open the breaker/EMS panel this morning to check connections and the breaker. Failing that, I'll start dismantling the oven.

Clara was baking a pie (convection only) while I was gone. She told me she burnt the pie up. It was only after she removed the pie and later tried to use the micro that it died.

When I looked at this pie, there were areas burnt totally black and I mean hard as a rock. While other areas were just barely over done. I can only conclude now the oven went caflooy and turned the micro on. I'm 99.99% sure now a new oven is in our future

Sounds about right. The microwaves burnt the sugar. Any way one of the "Terrorists" could have jumped up and bumped a button? It might have gone into the pre-heat mode too.

I had a similar problem, turned out that a couple of wires in the upper portion of the microwave had burned/heated and caused a temp. cutout to open cutting off all power to the unit. The cutout had to be ordered and the terminals going to it replaced.
The cutout was located on the left side above the cavity.
Not real easy to get at but easier than replacing the oven!
The unit failed due to the extreme heat in that area over the years.

Hope this helps!

99.99% is as close to certain as a person can get. I'm kind of a replace rather than repair when it is that old. To each his own, anyway sorry this happened so close to Christmas, lots of after Christmas sales going on however.

Good luck.

I'm more or a repair guy, or at least to find out why something failed. You can only learn from trying.

My GE convection oven went out this summer. It just started to growl and nothing else! Replaced with a Kitchenaid from Lowes. I had to rebuild cabinet to fit the new micro and what a difference! Cooks much better than the GE. You might find the panel or valence just above the micro is held in place with Velcro or push pins like mine. You need to gain access to this aria to remove the oven and your outlet for the oven may be there.

It seems the thread is coming to and end, so I'll slip in a Merry Christmas Dunner. And the same to all on the thread.

Yes, I have a sixty year old Shopsmith (before they were Shopsmith) which I love to keep running and 107 year old fishing reel that can inspire me to repair it but 13 year old Microwaves, well I would not worry about getting it running but the fact that it is incinerating pies would irk me to no end, I like pies.

If the microwave was made from wood I would fix it and you could never tell.

But I digress, I came back on to say Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, Dunner (and all), as soon as we can button up and load up we are heading south.

On my 03 Dolphin the Mic/Cov is held in by two long screws in the cabinet above then it just tilts forward and out; a slip fitting in the back. No surrounding cabinet so I hope yours is that easy as well.
