If your microwave is not turning on it could be due to your fuse needing to be replaced. This part protects the microwave by shutting it off if there is an electrical surge. This fuse is just over an inch long, is metallic on both ends and ceramic in the middle. Before beginning this repair, unplug the appliance and wait a few minutes before starting. Remove the outer cabinet which is held in place with two screws. You will then locate the power cord which will lead you to the fuse holder. Determine if the fuse has blown. Using an ohmmeter, you should be able to figure out if it has blown. A proper reading is zero ohms, if it reads as anything else then your fuse has in fact blown. Simply snap the old fuse out of place and place the new one in.

Question:

Control panel, clock, light, turntable all work, but unit does not heat. Does the fuse control all power to all parts? In other words, could my problem be simply the fuse even though the control panel, etc. Still work or do I have a bigger problem? Thanks.

Answer:

Hi Jay, Thank you for the question. Normally if the appliance seems to be working as normal other then the heat the fuse will be fine. Sounds like you need to replace the Magnetron, This part is used to generate microwave energy/heat. Hope this helps!

Answer:

Hi Bob, Thank you for your question. Make sure to unplug your appliance. To get to your fuse, you will have to remove your grille from above your door and you will have to unscrew and remove your control panel. There is a small metal vent on the top right hand side of your appliance, your fuse is located in there. Be very careful. If you do not release the charge from your capacitor, you may get electrocuted. You can release the charge with a screw driver with an insulated handle. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.
