First you'd want to disconnect the oven from the wall outlet or turn off the breaker. You usually need to remove the grille running across the top edge. It is held in place by screws or clips or both. Then your control panel frame will be held in place by a screw, probably at the top. Once that is out, the control panel frame will either swing down like a drawbridge or lift up and away from the chassis. Don't pull too hard on the wires! At this point, don't reach too far back into the oven, as the high voltage section may still have a charge on it. The fuse should be easy to spot on the floor of the chassis or by the door switches. It's likely either a 20A or 15A ceramic type, which is widely available at local stores. Please note that other things can make an oven go "dead", such as a bad thermostat ot thermal cutout, a control board problem (which I repair for $32.50 natiowide) or another part or connection problem. Be safe, and post back if you have other trouble.

How do you replace the fuse in ge pvm2070


You should first check the outlet with a toaster or hair dryer to be sure it's working under a load.

Then you should test the fuse then the TCOs if the fuse is good.

There is a technical sheet hidden behind the grille or controls.

There is a video here showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

Where is the fuse in the Tappan Microwave (undercabinet) mounted


Quite often on an over the range model, the line fuse is located behind the grille or behind the controller, or sometimes in between the door switches.
There is a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes here.

You _should_ be able to find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts here.
But if the oven is dead, first check the outlet under load (a toaster or heair dryer work best), then you can suspect the fuse, the magnetron thermostat (or TCO), the oven cavity TCO, or the controller.
Let us know if you need further help.

My jvm 1861 oven does not power on at all. how do i disassemble the control panel to replace the fuse


At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range grille and control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

The fuse should be accessible after removing only the grille, with no need to remove the controller.

According to a similar model's service manual:

"The fuse is located on the upper duct mounted to the Noise filter.
1. Disconnect power and remove grille.
2. Replace the fuse."

You can find handy exploded views and order parts by model number
here.

Model MHV350E....replacing lamps and shorted-out....power to receptacle but no power to unit.


Whenever the cooktop lamps blow or when they are removed or installed while the oven has power, the filaments can internally short, causing a surge which can blow the microwave's fuse and damage the circuit board.

I would suggest that you first check and replace the fuse in the oven.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If replacing the fuse does not restore all functions, we regularly repair these controller assemblies nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid with a one-year guarantee.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.

How do I open the front panel of GE Spacemaker 2.0 ? Fuse?


there are screws either on top of or in the grille that allow you to remove it. after screws are removed, open the door, pull lightly toward you starting at the control side if it does not pull, then it may have to be pushed toward the hinge side, then pulled out. behind the grille, is the screw attaching the control panel. lift the panel up before pulling out. Just to add a thought,if the display lights up it is probably not the fuse, although, in some models there is a high voltage fuse, it is pretty rare.

REPLACING FUSE IN WHIRLPOOL MICROWAVE


It's hard to tell from the exploded views, but it appears to be on the floor of the microwave behind the control panel.

At our site, we have a video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

If the fuse is not the culprit, also check the two thermostats - one on the magnetron and one on the top of the oven chassis.

The mini manual / tech sheet will show you where they are and how to test them.

To check the oven thermostat, you will need to remove the oven from the wall. You can download Whirlpool owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Replace fuse


The fuse is generally located on the bottom of the chassis of the microwave. You have to remove the outer cover on a counter top model - or the front panel assembly on an over-the-range model. There are several reasons why it may blow. If the fuse is loose in the holder, the fuse and the holder should both be replaced. If - with the microwave disconnected from the wall - you can easily turn the fuse with your fingers while it's in the holder, then it's too loose. What happens is the loose connection generates too much heat, causing it to melt internally. If so, you'll usually see a ball of solder at a point where the cap meets the body of the fuse. If the fuse blows as soon as you plug the oven in the wall, or when you open the door, the problem is likely with the door switches. You can find my files "doorsw.txt" and "safety'txt" via Google. They give you the safety warnings and cover the diagnosis and replacement of the door switches. If the fuse blows as soon as you hit START, then it's likely that you have a shorted high-voltage capacitor. If the fuse blows a few seconds after you hit START, then it's likely that you have an overheating / shorting high-voltage transformer. If you still have a problem, please wirte back with more detail. Be safe!
