Question about Microwave Ovens
I dont have any lit. on the machine and cant locate any model number.!!! The machine quit working I was told. Found a blown fuse. Did not have any replacement so I fitted a thin wire. The machine seemed to work. It had nothing in. As I watched the wire became red hot. Before it blew the circuit breaker of the main board disconnected. Several tries gave the same result. I have another magnetron and transformer. They all give the same ohm readings. Seems unlikely all units would be faulty. The turntable motor functions normally as does the cooling fan-no shorts detected. Dont know how to check the capacitor
Can you help? Rob alias truffle. Jhb. R.S.A. 09/11/08
Wow, I've never heard of a microwave having a circuit breaker on the main board.
I would suggest that you test the capacitor and the high voltage transformer.
Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:
