Question about Amana CW65T Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Microwave Not Working

My Amana Radarange, Model CW65T Manufactured in October 1994, stopped working during operation. I opened the microwave up and replaced a blown fuse. I then attempted to use the microwave again and the fuse blew again. There doesn't appear to be any obvious short-circuits, everything appears to be clean.

Does any one have any suggestions? Are their any instruction manuals available online to conduct a diagnosis?

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

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.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:
