If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout (TCO) / thermal fuse on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of 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.

We regularly repair these control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week with a one-year guarantee.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Do the Sunbeam microwave oven have an inline fuse? I have no power in the unit at all.

Most microwaves have a fuse inside the unit. Make sure that you have unplugged the microwave and then remove the cover and look for where the power cord goes into your microwave. Follow the black wire from the power cord and it should take you to either an inline fuse holder or a small circuit board where the fuse will be mounted. You will need to replace it with the same size fuse and the amp rating will be stamped on one of the silver collars. Hope this helps!

No power at unit. Power to plug

Jim, Take the screws out that hold the cover on your unit and then take the cover off. Find where your cord goes into the machine and follow the black wire from the cord, it normally should go to a small circuit board and your fuse is usually mounted on that circuit board. It will be a 15 amp fuse and you usually can get one of those at most appliance parts stores. If there is not a circuit board the black wire may go directly to an in-line fuse holder. Hope this helps.

Has no power,

see the next steps: God bless your use the common sense, NOT feared.
No Lights or Power, Unit seems Dead First check is the main fuse of the unit. On countertop units, you will need to take the shell off. The fuse will be close to where the cord comes through into the unit. OTR units, this main fuse is usually behind the control panel or possibly behind the vent. Usually the fuse is obvious if blown, otherwise test with an OHM meter, if open, replace fuse.
Some brands will also have a thermal cut-off fuse in the incoming voltage line to the control board. Older Maytags and Samsungs have this fuse in it. This thermostat looking fuse is usually above the oven cavity somewhere under the outside shell. Sometimes you can get to it through the vent of OTR models. Test with an OHM meter, replace if open.

I have a Kenmore Microwave Hood 721.63653300. I unscrewed one of the light bulbs and the glassw seperated from the base which cased a small pop now the unit will not run. I have check the power to the unit...

All Microwave ovens have a main fuse that is not accessible while the unit is mounted under a cabinet. Drop MW oven and replace the main fuse.

We had a lighting storm a few days ago and now my Amana radarange will not do anything, can this be as simple as a fuze? and if so can that be replaced without removing from the wall? thanks, Dean

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
Yes it could certainly be the fuse and that is where i would first check and if it checks out good than you may have a fried controle board or even fried wires inside the microwave
You may even have a bad power inverter also ok
Sometimes the boards can be more expensive than the unit costs you originally so be wise to this ok
keep me posted on what you have found
best regards Mike

MVH350 not turning on

Have you checked the main fuse?

Microwave does not turn on

There are about as many causes of this as there are parts in the set. To Start with, Check that the microwave is not plugged into a GFCI wall socket.. If it is, make sure the socket has not been tripped. If it has reset it. Make sure the set is unplugged for the rest of this. Follow the power cord in the unit to find the primary fuse. You'll need to test the fuse with a Continuity tester since this fuse usually a ceramic fuse and you can't just tell by looking at it. If that's good, the problem will most likely be a mini fuse on the controller board or a fuselink that's in side the small transformer on the controller board. If lightning is suspect, you can pull the board out and look at the circuit side to check to burned traces. Replace any MOVs that may be on the board otherwise any corrective work is just wasted. Back to the primary fuse... If the primary fuse is blown.... Chances are that you have a bad Diode in the Tube side of the circuit. Depending on the age of the unit... it maybe a HVR-1 diode. If their are no relays on the controller board, check for a bad Triac. It could be just time to junk it.
