Sharp microwave light comes on but wont start

Most ovens have thermostat and fuse breakers and some go bad or something blew it out. You can get into it with an ohmmeter and check some things out. You get lucky. You might also type in sharp and model number in your browser and locate a circuit diagram which can be very helpful.

Panasonic NN-S540BF where is the fuse?

There will of course be a fuse in the plug, but also there will be a fast-blow specialist glass fuse inside the machine, mounted on or around the transformer. You will have to take the cover off the microwave and expose its innards to find this.

Food for thought:

This is supposed to be a professional operation not to be taken on by unqualified people

If you ARE going to do it, unplug from the mains before you start!

Take the fuse to your local electrical shop, you wont get one of these fuses from a supermarket

Ask yourself why it blew? There is a tiny chance it was a coinidental mains power surge. Far more likely that it blew because it needed to, because the tarnsformer has become faulty.

If you replace the fuse, be prepared for a 50/50 chance that it will just blow the new fuse straight away because it has an electrical fault (That you will not be able to repair, believe me!)

Finally, if you take a microwave apart, you should have it safety checked for leaking microwave energy after.

This is one of those "you shouldn't really do this yourself, but lots of people do" warnings. Proceed at your own risk.

Good morning We are about to fit a rangemaster classic hood 120cm approx. to suit our Elan 110 dual fuel cooker with a gas hob. What is the corrrect distance we should leave between the hob and...

In my experience, the hood should be just above head height, that will avoid banging your head, and at least 33 inches or 8ocm above the hob.
Hope this helps.

My microwave blew up is it savable or should i throw it out

Dear Nataliebrown,

The Consumer Product Safety Commission warns against do-it-yourself repairs of microwave ovens. Microwave ovens use high voltage which makes it particularly hazardous for consumers to remove the cover and touch electrical parts. The possibility for electrical shock from a microwave oven still exists even after the oven is disconnected from the power source. Even unplugged ovens can cause serious injury.So i humbly request u to either call up a service engineer if u want to use the same microwave oven or change ur mind to the new, highly equipped ovens available in the market.

please rate this solution.Thank u Nataliebrown..

We had this problem. It was installed improperly - to recirculate instead of to vent.
