Blows fuse. Replaced fuse, set time, start and blows fuse again

Bob for model number peb2060sm1ss

Hi Bob, Thank you for your inquiry. If the fuse on your microwave is continuously blowing you will need to check the circuit breaker in your home as there may be too much load on the line. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

How many watts on this part?

Karen for model number WB27X26081

Hello Karen, thank you for contacting us. The magnetron would only put out what the microwave is labeled for, if you have an 1100 watt microwave it would be 1100 watts and so on. Hope this helps!

Microwave function not working

1) Removed 4 screws securing the microwave to the cabinet.2) Slid microwave out, unplugged and placed on a work surface that allowed lower trim to hang over. 3a) Removed two screws and removed the cover on top of the oven. 3b) Unplugged high voltage plug from Magnatron. 4) Removed wires from overtemp fuse mounted to Magnatron. 5) Removed the four screws securing the Magnatron to the oven. 6) Removed Manatron. It's a tight fit, but can be done without removing anything else. 7) Replaced Magnatron. This is where I needed the magnetic part retrieval tool. The nature of a Magnatron is the use of strong magnets surrounding the tube. Getting the four screws back into place wasn't possible with just a normal magnetic screwdriver tip. I used the retrieval tool to position the screws back in place. Be sure to not initially tighten any screw completely, until they can be evenly tightened. This ensures correct compression/seating of the shielding material near the neck of the tube. 8) Reverse removal steps. Plugged in and tested microwave function on a cup of tap water. 9) Reinstated in cabinet and got a big thank you kiss from the wife!
