The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

Please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you.

Why does light come on, no motor or cook. Display is good


please follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
  1. Inspect the power cord Unplug the power cord and check for voltage at the outlet. Also inspect for damage, shorts, or burn marks that can be a possible safety hazard.
  2. Bad door switch If your microwave does not work at all and you know everything is plugged in properly and the outlet is functioning, then also check the door hooks and the door release button. Using a volt-ohm meter on RX1, check your terminals. When your microwave door is closed you should have a reading of zero. Once the door is open the reading should change to infinity. If these readings do not match up, replacement of the door switch is necessary.
  3. Blown fuses To determine if your fuse has blown out, which may attribute to your microwave not running, you need to pull the fuse out using a pair of fuse pullers. Lay it down and using a volt-ohm meter on RX1, check both ends of the fuse in question. If you do not get a reading of zero, then you will need to replace the fuse.
  4. Bad fan motor Locate the fan and remove the leads. Again using the volt-ohm meter on RX1, check the terminals. If an infinity reading is displayed, it means that the fan has gone bad and requires replacement.

Where is the fuse located. It just quit heating but still runs, any ideas


There is usually a 125V, 20 AMP line fuse inside most microwave ovens. It will be mounted somewhere at the point where the power cord enters the back of the unit, in line with the power cord, or on a small circuit card called a line filter. Unfortunately, you will need to uninstall the oven (if this is an over the range model), UNPLUG it and remove the exterior case to access. The case comes off in various ways depending on manufacturer and model. Parts are available at any of the following websites: searspartsdirect.com pcappliancerepair.com appliancepartspros.com repairclinic.com The first three sites include illustrated parts listings that can help you locate and properly identify any parts you may need. The microwave oven may also equipped with various thermostats that (if blown) can cause similar symptoms to that of a blown line fuse. So, if the line fuse is NOT blown, you may want to check all the thermostats to see if they are still good. You will need to remove each one and measure across the terminals with a multimeter. A good reading is 0 ohms. NOTE: The thermostats typically will trip if the oven cavity has been overheated. Cooking items that are high heat producers such as popcorn or baked potatoes in rapid succession can often cause this problem. Allowing the oven cavity to cool a few minutes with the door open between cooking can prevent this from occurring.


If the line fuse is blown, you can usually purchase a box of fuses at a hardware store for just a little more than what the manufacturer charges for a single fuse. 125V, 20AMP Ceramic Slow Blow fuses are recommended.

If you have any questions, or need additional assistance troubleshooting, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

NOTE: Make sure you take any resistance readings with the microwave UNPLUGGED and the component under test isolated (removed) from the circuit. These ovens can still blow a fuse by simply sitting idle. This can occur from any power fluctuations, brown outs, voltage spikes, etc. Or, it could be the symptom of a component that may have failed. If you find the internal fuse blown and replace it, only to have it blow again, you have a more significant problem than a simple blown fuse.

My GE1340 built-in microwave stopped working completely. It is just dead and does not respond when you push buttons. No power. Checked circuit breakers - all are fine. Any ideas? Is it kaput?

Blown fuse 10 amp LG microwave oven model ms2127c it blown while im cooking a popcorn. what shall i do?


You can get a replacement fuse from almost anywhere ranging from Ebay to an authorised LG repair agent, but please remember a blown fuse can simply be the symptom of a larger problem, so my advice is to buy two, replace it, if it works then you have a spare, but if upon replacing the fuse,it blows again straight away, your microwave may have a more serious problem. PLEASE READ UP ON THE DANGERS OF A HIGH VOLTAGE CAPACITOR AND ALSO HOIW TO DISCHARGE ONE AS THEY CAN HOLD A LETHAL AMOUNT OF CHARGE AND CAN CAUSE FATAL INJUFRIES INCLUDING DEATH.

Microwave lights up but no cook!


Magnetron of your Microwave oven may be defective. If there is a fuse between the highvoltage transformer and to the highvoltahe capacitor check the fuse is blown off. If so replace the fuse. If it is Ok change the Magnetron.

Pushed cook button with nothing in oven now it doesn't work at al


Try to unplug your microwave then leave it for 1 hour the purpose is to reset and drain stored current after 1 hour plug it again ,if still notworking there something wrong inside. 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 replaced it or you need to have a qualified appliance repair technician replace it.

Hope it may help you;

My jvm1190 reads F4 when we try to use auto functiions


There is a fuse blown, but I can't explain how to replace it. They are inside the unit. Good microwaves have many fuses and can be powered up, but have a blown element fuse.
