  1. My GE spacesaver (JVM1430BD) stopped working in the middle of microwaving and blew the inline fuse. After some digging and testing, it turns out the capacitor was bad (continuity between the two sides). I ordered a new one with nearly the same specs (2100wvac and 0.86uF on old vs 2100wvac and 0.91uF on new).
