Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Microwave/Convection just quit

It was on less than 45 seconds and then lost all power.  I tried unplugging it.  Tried another outlet.  It is clean inside and out and has enough space between it and the wall.  I cannot find a fuse on the machine.

    I checked the GFI and tried an outlet on another breaker.  The unit is about 18 months old.  I will look for the fuse and thank you for your help.

Is this oven new? IF NOT HOW OLD?

Did you plug the oven into different outlets or try another appliance to make sure the outlets were working?

Sometimes two or more outlets can be on the same breaker, or on the same GFCI, and if either tripped, the oven of course would not work in either outlet, something to double check.

If it is new, of course take it back. If not and you prove you have power, there is a fuse in about every microwave I have ever looked in.

get the manual or download one, and it will tell you where to look for the fuse, it is common for a fuse to blow in these ovens, so more searching is needed before the next step.

I have a Panasonic microwave that I bought about 4 months ago and when I started it, it ran for about 45 seconds and just quit. tried plugging it into another outlet but still nothing, so was wondering if...


Every microwave I have see has a fuse in the main power input line. When it opens the MW is 100% dead. I've never heard of a reset button in a MW. Depending whether it is an over the cook top or counter type, you usually find the fuse in a front-removable panel or you have to remove the metal case. The fuse is easy to spot and is usually a ceramic tube with metal end caps in a open fuse holder.

My microwave/convection oven will not heat up, but the lights and clock work


Hello

Look to see if the microwave power cord is securely plugged into a live power outlet. The power cord cannot be loose for proper function. Move other appliances to a separate outlet if possible.

Replace or reset the circuit breaker or fuse if blown or tripped.

Unplug the microwave and wait several seconds before plugging it back in to reset.

Make sure there are no current functions in use. Press "Clear/Off" to cancel any other settings or programs already in progress.


Select a new cooking program and then select "Cook Time." Make a time selection and press the "Start/Pause" pad to begin cooking.

Microwave lost all power while running and breakers and fuses are fine.


My maytag just did the same thing. Unplugged everything and let it set for 30 minutes. Just tried it and it came back. Hope you have the same luck.

Microwave convection oven repair needed


Check the internal fuse. Unplug it, unscrew and take off the cover, the fuse should be easily found in the back by the power cord. I tlooks like a regular fuse but is white instead of clear glass because microwave fuses are special. You'll have to measure it with a meter as a result and be sure to replace it with the same kind. (try finding them at radio shack) Hopefully there isn't something more serious also.
