A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout (TCO) / thermal fuse on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the magnetron thermostat to open.

Then when it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

When checking thermostats, if it has a hood fan thermostat, that should read open, as opposed to the others, which should read closed.

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 when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

If it's intermittent or random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or a loose fuse holder, or even an intermittent fuse.

You should do a continuity test on the fuse while it's in the holder (with the microwave unplugged, of course) then turn the fuse by hand or take it out and put it back in, then test it again.

If you remove the fuse, then press the meter leads against the ends, it can allow internal contact to be made and make a bad fuse appear to be good.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

NOTE: There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

SOURCE: The interior light on my microwave convection oven doesn't light.

If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (and the owner's manual doesn't address it) some disassembly may be required.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

On an over the range type, remove the vent grille across the top and see if bulbs can be accessed there. There may be a panel on the bottom covering the light(s), instead.

If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer 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.

Once it's out of the wall, the outer cover (wrapper) will need to be removed, just as you'll need to do on a counter top model.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

SOURCE: When the micorwave is running the display lights flicker and the unit shuts down

That looks as a faulty control board.

Yes. There is a fuse for your unit. Look at item 47 in the upper left portion of this diagram.

I was heating my tea and I heard a loud pop and the unit turned off...I thought I had blown a fuse and went out and checked fuse box..flipped all fuses and microwave still not turning on at all...micorwave...


The description you provide indicates the magnetron has failed, "heats food" and blown the main fuse in the microwave oven, since the unit is 10 years old it is much cheaper to replace with a new one rather than have it repaired.

RCA Model RMW700 micorwave 1 yr old stopped working. No power, yet the outlet is live. No power to the display, no light inside, just dead. Stopped working when heating cold cup of coffee.


There is a fuse inside the cover of the microwave. You will need to remove the outer shell and follow the power cord you will see an inline fuse. This fuse can be purchased at any appliance parts house.

Hope this helped

Where is the fuse located inside the Panasonic Micorwave Model NN-S263


On most microwaves the whole cover that wraps around it should come off by removing the screws on the back. The fuse more than likely will be a tan color and ceramic. It will be about 1 inch long and the diameter equal to that of a pencil. Once you get the cover off it should be noticeable. Just look around. Be sure to replace it with the exact same one. I would take it in to radio shack or a appliance repair store to make sure you get a match. Good luck!

Micorwave lights up, timer works but dish won't turn or heat.


You have not mentioned the model and make of the oven. You can check if there is a fuse between the highvoltage winding of the transformer andthe capacitor. If it is blown off replace the fuse, or you have to replace the magnetron.

My spacemaker GE 1440 do not heat it 2 years old


Hi tony,

The units magnetron(the device that generates the micro waves) is failed or failing, this can be DIY depending on how mechanically inclined you are.
