Blows main fuse when the microwave generator start, (cooking function).

Remove microwave from oven cabinet. remove cover and check main fuse with ohm meter.
Tried fuse, it does not blow untill cooking starts.
Check capacitor with ohm meter, after properly performing capacitor dischagre procedure.
Order new capacitor, simple installation. another new fuse and all is good and cooking again.

CustomerRoger from Fort Worth TX

The microwave would blow the fuse immediately when trying to use.

I replaced the large capacitor (.95 uf). Much of the shell (casing) has to be removed and the capacitor is hard to get to. It is housed in a very inconvenient place. Because of the unfamiliarity of how to access the capacitor it took about an hour to get to it. After receiving the new capacitor it only took about half an hour to install it, re-assemble the microwave, and re-install under the cabinet. Of course a new fuse was required.
