I had a Sears microwave once that about once a year a fuse inside would blow causing no power to get to microwave. I removd the housing and saw a tubular fuse which resembles a older automotive fuse,
about an inch in length with metal ends and ceramic middle. Sears recommended to buy their replacements however I just bought a multi pack from Radio Shack for much cheaper and whenever it quit working I would replace the fuse and plug it back in and it would work just like new.

I have a neff B6774N0GB combi oven. Activated the hot air button and it has tripped the circuit breaker. Fan element examined and looks perfect. Oven is isolated from other appliances


The hot air function uses a great deal more current than the other functions. Check the tag on the oven for current requirements, and check the rating of the circuit breaker in use. If the breaker is rated lower than the ovens rated maximum current draw, it will trip under the load. If the rating of the breaker is above the ovens maximum current draw, and there is nothing else plugged into that circuit, the breaker may need replacement.

Wont work or come on


Debbie,
If nothing is coming on with no lights or anything you probably have a blown fuse. Unplug your microwave and turn it around and remove the screws holding cover on and then remove the cover. Look for where the power cord goes into the back of the unit and follow the black wire from the cord to where it ends. It should stop an either a circuit board or a fuse holder. Make sure that you replace the fuse with the same amperage fuse as what you take out. You will find the amp rating stamped on one of the silver collars on each end of the fuse. Good luck!

Mcd 1311st blowing circuit breaker


Generally microwaves should be on their own breaker. Hard wired ones are required to be by code.

If yours has a plug - make sure the plug is original with the unit, not added later or spliced onto hard-wired power leads.

Plug into and outlet rated 15A as the only thing on a 15A branch circuit and try again. If it still trips, try a 20A line and circuit. If it trips that, trash the microwave and buy a new one. Nothing is meant to be repaired inside.

Over range microwave model jvm1650wb008 fan works nothing else does


Check to see if circuit breaker is tripped in the electrical panel, or if it is connected to a ground fault outlet, it may have tripped. Sometimes there is one ground fault outlet serving others in series in the kitchen.

Machine will not turn on


from online Microwave Repair Manual: Totally dead oven (no lights, no clock, no display, no fan, no heat...)First, check power to the outlet using a lamp or radio you know works. The fuse or circuit breaker at your service panel may have blown/tripped due to an overload or fault in the microwave oven or some other appliance. You may just have too many appliances plugged into this circuit - microwave ovens are high current appliances and should be on a dedicated circuit if possible. If you attempt to run a heating appliance like a toaster or fryer at the same time, you *will* blow the fuse or trip the circuit breaker. A refrigerator should never be plugged into the same circuit for this reason as well - you really don't want it to be without power because of your popcorn!

If you find the fuse blown or circuit breaker tripped, unplug everything from the circuit to which the microwave is connected (keep in mind that other outlets may be fed from the same circuit). Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker. If the same thing happens again, you have a problem with the outlet or other wiring on the same branch circuit. If plugging in the microwave causes the fuse to blow or circuit breaker to trip immediately, there is a short circuit in the power cord or elsewhere.

The microwave oven may be powered from a GFCI outlet or downstream of one and the GFCI may have tripped. (Removing a broken oven lamp has been known to happen.) The GFCI outlet may not be in an obvious location but first check the countertop outlets. The tripped GFCI could be in the garage or almost anywhere else! Pushing the RESET button may be all that's needed.

Next, try to set the clock. With some ovens the screen will be totally blank following a power outage - there may be nothing wrong with it. Furthermore, some ovens will not allow you perform any cooking related actions until the clock is set to a valid time.

Assuming these are not your problems, a fuse has probably blown although a dead controller is a possibility.


While you can do some repairs on your microwave, what you don't know can kill you... even on an unplugged microwave, so make sure you understand the dangers and how to reduce them before you try anything inside a microwave. If you want to do more yourself, go to the link at the top of this post.

Trips circuit breaker


Make sure it is on a 20 amp circuit with NOTHING else creating a load.

A 15 amp circuit is USUALLY not enough.

If it trips a 20 amp all by itself it probably has a failure that needs servicing.

The past Few days the microwave would trip the breaker. today I went to use it and it worked for 30 seconds when I checked what I was heating and turned it bakc on and it would not work


Microwaves that are either built in, a part of the oven, or over the range are on a dedicated circuit by law. This means nothing else could have tripped that breaker but the microwave.
If it has a problem severe enough to trip a 20 amp breaker several times, it is only getting worse each time you reset the breaker and turn it on.
There is a possible chance of fire. I recommend you turn the circuit breaker off and replace the microwave. Is it a plug in, or over the range type?

MY KENMORE 1000 WATT LITERALLY WORKED FINE ONE MINUTE THEN NOTHING THE NEXT. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT HAPPENED.


Most likely the circuit breaker tripped or the fuse blew. A 1000 watt microwave is using 2/3 of the power available on a typical household circuit of 1500 watts. If anything else is plugged into that circuit u can have a problem. Just reset the breaker or replace the fuse and u will be up and running. if it happens alot you should consider a dedicated circuit for your microwave only.
