    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.

    If
    it goes dead or blows the breaker (or GFI) when you plug it in or open or close
    the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch
    mount.


    Do either of these scenarios sound like yours?

In case it's still helpful, I'll inject a little sanity into the replies.

If the fuse blows as soon as you hit Start, it's probably a shorted high-voltage capacitor. That's usually economical to repair.

If the fuse blows a few seconds after you hit Start, it's probably a shorting high-voltage transformer. That's usually not economical to repair.

It's not radiation (non-ionizing RF by the way) that's the hazard, it's the voltages.

SOURCE: Galanz Microwave Oven - Unable to disable child lock

Galanz's website seems to be useless. I tried finding information but kept being told "no data available." So while I can't tell you where to find the manual, here's something to try. Most microwaves get put into lock by pressing and holding one of the buttons for longer than normal, or by pressing one of the buttons several times in a row. Some ovens use the TIMER button. It won't be one of the number keys, but one of the function buttons. So start with a button, press and hold it for at least 5 seconds before you let go. If nothing happens then try another button. If that doesn't solve the problem, then try pressing each function key several times before moving on to the next one. If that still doesn't get it going, maybe a store in your area that sells Galanz will take a look at the book for you. The process should be the same for any similar model.

SOURCE: microwave blowing fuses

Sanyo isn't that great of a manufacturer.. I had a microwave from them a few years back that did the same thing.. The wiring inside the microwave is shot.. if you were to open it up, you'd probably see some burnt wires from a short. If you use the microwave over a range, it may be because of grease build-up...

anyhow, its better that you invest in a new microwave, rather than fix it. It will be much more cost efficient

SOURCE: NO All i need is an English manual for a Galanz

You might have a little trouble with this one. But all I can suggest is sending an email
to them and ask for the manual. They should have a pdf version online but I don't read
any Chinese so can give you that directly. Most household goods companies tend to
respond within a few days about manuals.

Microwave suddenly went dead - completely black. All 'house' fuses are okay. Could it be a fuse in the microwave itself?


Yes! that is exactly the problem, the fuse is a ceramic type "white body with silver ends" located near the high voltage capacitor, unplug and allow 30 seconds for the capacitor to dis-charge before removing the fuse. Keep in mind the reason for the fuse to blow is often caused a defective door switch, or you just might get away with changing the fuse.

My microwave XL1800 keeps blowing fuses


Now this is not quite clear enough to give an accurate single answer.

Is it the fuse within the microwave or the general house supply fuse that blows?

If its the latter then an electrician needs to create a separate fuse line to reduce the overall load on the fuse, 15amps generally. Many houses have too many plugs being used at once on the same circuit TV, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, electric jug etc all drawing power. Big screen Tv's are the worst offenders.

If it is the fuse within the Mwave, then it needs attention,as a short has developed in the unit and needs to be corrected.

I will assume it is less likely to be this and punt for the first solution ( House fuse box overload)

Microwave blowing house fuse, but not right away. Sometimes not, sometimes within 15 seconds, sometimes longer. Any idea what the problem and how to fix? Thanks


PLEASE DO NOT USE OR TOUCH when plugged in. Remove Fuse & UNPLUG IT. The ONLY reason a Fuse "Blows" is due to an Active, to Earth fault. This "Could" place the "Mains" voltage on the "Case" of the Unit, if touched while plugged in it could KILL YOU. Please call a registered professional, to attend to this. It may be in the Unit?, it may be in the wiring?

Where can I locate the fuse in my Galanz microwave oven model #P60D17L-D5. It suddenly stopped working and I think this may be the problem. Thanks for the help, Joy


I would expect to find it on the floor of the machine (inside of course) near where the cord enters the cabinet

As i turn on microwave it blows the fuse. what could be the reason.


try using it at a different location in the house(different circuit) if it also blows that fuse, there must be a short in the unit. do not use. if it works means line in the kitchen is overload, and you need a higher fuse rating or breaker.

I got a Galanz microwave Moldel # P60D17L-D5 and cannot find a ceramic fuse anywhere it's 3/4 inch long and 1/8 inch diameter. I've tried emailing the company but no reply's.Anybody got any idea's


The microwave oven use a slow-blow fuse. If you look on the around the end of the fuse, you will be able to tell what size it is. Example (250v 3Amp) Your fuse may be found at Hardware stores in the electrical isle or a Radio Shack. If you found my suggestions to be helpful, please rate my solution. Thanks D. Lange
