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.
