Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

The main 10A 250V Fuse keeps on blowing up everytime I use my Microwave function. This does not happen when I use the Convection Oven.

I have a National Microwave/Convection Oven Model NN-C988W. The Main SICHERUNG Fuse keeps on blowing up within a sec from turning on the Microwave function. This does not happen when I use the Convection Oven function. I looked around on the control panel but could not notice any blown components.

Thanks in advance for your help

    Ground checked to be ok. But what I have noticed that the Antenna on the Magnetron is damed (melted all around). The test readings of the Magnetron was ok. but the fuse still gets burned as soon as I turn on the microwave. Is the damaged Magnetron Antenna doing this?

The food in the microwave is not heating up I have tested the fuse (F8AH250V) and found that it has blown. Is it safe to replace this fuse (F8AH250V) on my microwave.


Fuses seldom just go bad on their own, but it's safe to replace. Before you replace the fuse, squeeze the tabs of the fuse holder clips together a bit. Sometimes they don't grip the fuse tightly enough, and this can cause heating which damages the fuse. If the fuse blows again there is a bad part in the oven that will need to be located and replaced. For a small countertop oven, it's probably more economical just to replace the oven than to repair it.

What size fuse is a 250v 10a drawing fuse inside my microwave would a 6.3 32mm fuse be ok.its a lg ms-283 mc microwave


Chances are it is a standard 1/4" x 1-1/4" (6.3mm x 32mm) but I would suggest measuring it to be sure.

Here's an exploded view of that oven to help in disassembly.

Microwave blows fuse in microwave mode grill function ok


It is most likely the capacitor has shorted or the rectifier has shorted. Check with ohmeter, but make sure it is discharged first by shorting the capacitor with a wire.

Microwave Oven has died


Hi.
Check continuity of this 10A fuse to see if it's blown.

What is most likely to have happened, is that an internal short has happened inside the main transformer. These cannot be rectified, and often means scrapping the complete item due to cost of replacement.
However - if you can find another microwave with a different fault - just remove the good transformer.

Checking the transformer for a short at high voltage is not recommended.
You could try a spare 10A fuse as a start point (probably a leaded type) - but expect it to blow again. DON'T go higher or omit !

I believe mine blew a fuse as well


Usually, when your microwave oven doesn't work it all, the internal fuse (thermal fuse) is blown. This fuse protects both you and the oven. When it blows, you need to have a qualified appliance repair technician replace it.
many people have been electrocuted with an unplugged microwave due to the enormous residual charge inside.

you can now get a new microwave at walmart for fifty bucks..........why monkey with a ten year old unit.

Panasonic NNA554W blows 10a fuse when microwave comes on


Possibly the interlock monitor switch is bad or out of adjustment. This switch is designed to create a short circuit across the power line (and then blow the fuse) if you attempt to defeat the door interlock and operate the oven with the door open. A shorted capacitor or diode could also cause the fuse to blow. Because of lethal voltages inside and the possibility of microwave leakage if repairs aren't done correctly, you are best off leaving microwave service to professionals.

Microwave doesn't work


the outer casing has to be removed, inside you will find a large fuse 10A> this protects the transformers and magnetrons, also you will find some smaller control circuit fuses, they are normally mounted on the circuit board at the rear of the control panel.
