    Same problem. While cooking in oven mode, we lost all power. Where to look for a blown fuse?

  • Anonymous Dec 25, 2008

    No power to unit. Checked power plug and the plug works. Appears that the unit is not getting power or turned off

    Same issue, cooking in oven mode; when the unit lost all power. Verified the circuit breaker for the house was ok.  Power to the outlet also verified. Appears to be an internal fuse/breaker with the Advantium, itself?? Any ideas?

    cooking and all at once it lost all power, breakers were checked, outlet is fine, everything else on that breaker is working fine and I plugged something else into the same socket and it worked fine. Is there a fuse within the unit?

    Exact same problem - lost all power in middle of cooking. Had
    service person look at it, diagnosed blown thermostat. However, they want to charge $80 to install this $15 part. Looking for a less
    expensive solution - any ideas?

    has anyone resolved their no power at all problem after ruling out circuit breaker or outlet failure?

I am not sure I can solve your problem or perhaps you have already solved your problem. My thought is "are you sure your circuit Breakers are OK"??? In order to re-set a tripped circuit breaker you have to first turn them all the way off, then re-set them to 'on'. If you did not do that they probably did not re-set.

Assuming you did that correctly then I would have to suggest you contact prototech@usa.net. He/they might know of a internal fuse or other problem the may help you. Good luck.

Used the microwave last night. Later I noticed no light display for the clock. Come to find out microwave lost all power. Model number smh9207st


If there are no fuses or circuit breakers, the unit could be down and out. Check you power box for any tripped breakers.

Trip Circuit Breaker


The circuit breakers may both be functioning properly. What might be happening is that both circuits have other current drawing appliances on them. The circuit breakers react to the sum of all of the currents drawn by all of the devices on that circuit. So, if you have a 15 amp microwave and an 8 amp refrigerator on the same circuit, you would overload a 20 amp circuit by 3 amps.

Built-in Sharp Carousel II Microwave Convection Oven died.


There are a couple of safety thermostats in the oven to shut down power if something overheats. One is on the magnetron tube (the microwave source), the other is on the cooking cavity. These sometimes go bad. There's also a power line fuse that may have failed, or become loose in its mounting clips. These can be tested with an ohmmeter; they should all measure very close to zero ohms if they're good.

Another possibility is that the control circuit board in the oven may have failed. I have worked on several Sharp ovens where the power transformer for the board has gone bad for no good reason. If the board goes bad the oven may appear to be dead as well.

Microwave servicing is best left to professionals. If you're thinking of keeping this one, take it to a service shop (or call for home service) and get an estimate. Then decide whether to repair or replace.

Hope this has helped a little. Thanks for using Fixya!

Hi, This is Mike. My GE spacesaver xl1400 is shutting off as if it has lost AC power seconds after hitting the start button. The last couple of times it reset itself and now its dead. (power source is ok)....


-thermal cutout
-fan/fan motor
-transformer
-capacitor/diode
-circuit board, triac or magnetron

any of these could be the culprit
any of these can be tested
let me know if you need further instructions

How can I get the power to come on my Sharp microwave?


The problem may be an electrical one. Microwave ovens require a lot of power. Often, they use most of the power available to the circuit they are plugged in to. If there is not enough power in the circuit to feed the microwave and whatever else is plugged into that same circuit the fuse will blow or the circuit breaker will kick off.

Go to your electcical box, and check the breakers or the fuses. If one of the breakers has kicked, reset it by pushing it all the way off and then back on. If the fuse is blown, unscrew it and screw in a new one of the same amperage.

good luck. please rate my answer. thanks

ALL POWER LOST


We have the full service manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

You will need the
free Acrobat Reader to view or print it in case you don't have it.

The parts I would suspect most are the internal fuse, the magnetron TCO (thermal cutout) or the oven cavity TCO.

To check or replace the latter, you'll need to remove the oven from the wall and remove the cover.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

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

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

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

No power to Panasonic NN-S252 microwave oven

No power from Whirlpool.


IF YOU HAVE THE MICRWAVE PLUGGED IN AND THE CIRCUIT BREAKER TRIPS IMMEDIATELY WHEN SET,
CHECK THE DOOR HOOKS THAT TRIP THE DOOR SWITCHES. BOTH SHOULD BE SPRING LOADED. THERE SHOULD BE TWO HOOKS ON THE DOOR. IF O.K., CHECK THE DOOR SWITCHES. THERE ARE AT LEAST THREE. IF ONE OF THEM IS SHORTED CLOSED,
THE MONITOR SWITCH WILL CAUSE A DEAD SHORT ACROSS THE FUSE. THE FUSE MAY BE HOLDING BETTER THAN YOUR CIRCUIT BREAKER.
