Question about Kenmore 62702 Microwave Oven
After boiling water on the stove for a few hours trying to humidify the air in the kitchen the microwave went out. No lights on the key pad, no anything. I let it dry out for a few days even put a fan blowing on it and replaced the 250v 20amp fuse. Still no luck, when I plug it in there is nothing. The outlet I am using to plug in the microwave is providing power.
I sure hope the hood fan was on... It should always be on whenever you're boiling on the stove top, otherwise moisture can get into the microwave controls. The typical microwave will have just one power line fuse and two thermal fuses and/or thermostats, and the failure of any one of these can render the oven "dead". One thermostat / thermal cutout will be on or near the magnetron and one will be on top of the chassis / cavity. Does the inside light come on when you open the door? If so, then it's probably a problem in the control unit. If not, then it may be a bad thermostat or thermal cutout but it may still be the control unit.
