I have had all the same problems as you! I fixed it myself for less than $3. Go to home depot buy a CERAMIC fuse for microwaves its in a yellow and black package, take off the back of your microwave and replace the fuse! anyone who tells you that you cant use a ceramic fuse is full of themselves so dont listen to them.

When a fuse even starts to go bad, even though it looks intact: it can make your appliances do strange things. I changed the junk glass fuse with a ceramic one and the microwave worked like it was new out of the box. Give it a try, dont scrap your microwave.

I can't solve your problem, but might be able to help a little . . . I would be willing to give you $20 for the glass turntable plate if you cannot get your microwave fixed. Also, I saw that Target in Daytona has a couple of microwaves for $55 each.

There is a short somewhere. When the door is open it shorts the main capacitor to ground so it doesn't operate when the door is open. It blew the main fuse on the microwave. If you decide to fix it, look at the door switches as well. One of them will more than likely be bad.

make this test and fix it. God bless you


  1. Inspect the power cordUnplug the power cord and check for voltage at the outlet. Also inspect for damage, shorts, or burn marks that can be a possible safety hazard.
  2. Bad door switchIf your microwave does not work at all and you know everything is plugged in properly and the outlet is functioning, then also check the door hooks and the door release button. Using a volt-ohm meter on RX1, check your terminals. When your microwave door is closed you should have a reading of zero. Once the door is open the reading should change to infinity. If these readings do not match up, replacement of the door switch is necessary.
  3. Blown fusesTo determine if your fuse has blown out, which may attribute to your microwave not running, you need to pull the fuse out using a pair of fuse pullers. Lay it down and using a volt-ohm meter on RX1, check both ends of the fuse in question. If you do not get a reading of zero, then you will need to replace the fuse.
  4. Bad fan motorLocate the fan and remove the leads. Again using the volt-ohm meter on RX1, check the terminals. If an infinity reading is displayed, it means that the fan has gone bad and requires replacement.

My ge xl1800 microwave has completly lost power is there an internal fuse of some other reason it did this?


First try the oven in an other outlet in the house, (it could be the house's circuit braker), and yes ther ar some fuses inside but you need to open the unit to reach them, (usually small germain type ceramic fuses) if you have electronic skills you can do this your self but remember to always unplug the power before opening the applyance to prevent all risk of electrical shoks...

Braker keeps tripping


I need to know a few things.

1. Did you just place the Microwave in service?
a. If so you may very well have an over laded electrical circuit in your Kitchen. Try moving the uint to anouter cirsuit and see if the breaker for that circuit trips

2. Did this recently start happening?
a. If so then there is an internal short in your microwave.
b. This is usual;ly caused by a couple of things
1) The power diode for the magnetron is shorted
2) The capacitor has shorted
3) A door microswitch has failed in the open position (internlock protection)
4. The magnetron has failed.
These are the most common problems but there is always a chance of having a grounded power wire somewhere inside the chassis. I did not solve anything here but these are the most common problems. Cheers!

i would presume you know hot to use a VOM too, check the resistance of the wire as you close the door, if it would be too small, then you can test the wiring.

it could have been that the door switches was wired incorrect and once you close the door, the two lines are shorting out.

another odd thing you said is that it turn on with the door open.
that should not be the case because of microwave energy leaking out thru the door.
this door has the safety switch where in it would not or stop running once you accidentally open the door.

if you can trace the diagram which is usually pasted at the inner wall of the cover.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Yes, there should be a ceramic (tubular) fuse under the cover on the top side where the power comes into the microwave.
