Question about Whirlpool 1.6 Cu. Ft. Over-the-Range Microwave
Tried to heat up something and it just turned off and would not come on, it looked like the power supply was cut off. so i assumed it was a breaker, it wasn't replaced the 15ohms fuse behind the control panel power came back but as soon as it tried to heat up something the fuse again tried the second fuse and still had the same results. what could be the problem?
I'd say you almost certainly have a shorted high voltage capacitor.
Here is a link you or someone you know can use for test help, but read the safety warnings first: http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/cap_test.html
At our site, we now have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes, just in case the capacitor is right behind the panel.
But I don't think it is. It looks like you'll need to pull the oven down from the wall and take off the outer cover. It's safer if you have a helper.
