We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

Kitchenaid khms155lss4 microwave combo went dead what fuse should i check frist


Check to make sure you are getting power to the receptical, plug a lamp to confirm. Next unplug microwave oven and remove top, "several screws" now look inside where the keypad is, follow the wiring to the circuit board, there should be a small glass or ceramic fuse clipped in, before you take it out discharge silver rectangular capacitor with a screwdriver across the points to make sure all voltage is removed. Now unclip the fuse and test, if open replace with the same current rating, if no change I recommend a technician to take it further. Please remember there is extreme high voltage when unit is plugged in and running making it lethal, put the top back on for safety sake.

Where is the light inside of the unit


Replacement of the lamp should be carried out by a qualified appliance repair service.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!

Attempt this only if you are competent.

But here is a basic method if you are mechanically minded and have electrical safety knowledge.

The lamp is sat in a housing and its position is adjacent to the vent holes that it shines through.
If you feel confident, disconnect it from the mains power, remove anything in the cavity.
Remove the microwave cover. Purchasing a new replacement lamp will be useful as it will give you an idea of what it looks like. Locate the dead lamp remove the lamp and fit the new one. Replace the covers. Plug it back in and try the lamp by opening the door.
Hope this helps.

Is it possible to replace the bulb on a sanyo EM D9552W microwave please


Yes, but you will probably have to remove the unit outer cover. Make sure the microwave is unplugged as this is a lethal appliance.

Blown Fuse


If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

If it goes dead or blows the breaker when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

hi alan,

it sounds like the transformer is bad, which makes this easy, time for a new one. 12yrs is a good age for a microwave, average life is about 8-10 yrs!

Service to Whirlppol MH7130xez-1, circuit breaker popped then unit went dead


water may have leaked inside unit causing a short.the transformer output is about 1400 volts that feeds a large capacitor. a direct short can blow the transformer instantly or any support parts without time to burn something. creating little or no smell. I never sujest that a person
to try to repair a microwave oven because
the capacitor can still be charged and very lethal.
