Re: Microwave

The Panasonic NN-S960WA (may be identical) has the fuse at back, right, on top, & inside the cover. The screws are tamper proof screws. You can create a slot in the heads (2 screws) with a hacksaw blade and open with a flat blade screw driver. Don't forget to unplug the unit first.

Re: Microwave

It's usually located on the floor of the oven behind the control panel, or with the door switches.

Did you recently have trouble with the cooktop lights?

Sometimes when the cooktop lights blow or are inserted or removed while the oven is still plugged in, the filaments can short, causing a surge that damages the controller.

They can be repaired. More details here.

There is no power coming into my microwave which is a panasonic nn-L531WF model. I think it's the fuse. How can i change the fuse?

Dead appliance, power on wall outlet.


Attempt this only if you are competent.

If your appliance has absolutely no functions at all, remove it from the mains supply, remove the case and see where the mains lead goes in to the appliance and follow the cable until you find the main fuse.
The usual cause of this fuse failure is the door switches are contaminated or sticking. Check the door switches before putting power back on to the appliance.
Hope this helps.

most microwaves do have an internal ceramic fuse either 15 amp or 20 amp the cover has to come off to locate it usually at the top just behind the control board. do not touch the high voltage capacitor as it holds a charge even when the unit is unplugged.

Has no power

If your microwave oven doesn't seem to work at all, check these: Fuses Usually, when your microwave oven doesn't work it all, the internal fuse (thermal fuse) is blown. This fuse protects both you and the oven. When it blows, you need to have a qualified appliance repair technician replace it. Door switch If the fuse isn't the problem, check the door hooks and the door-release button. When these are broken, the door switch doesn't activate, so the oven can't work.

Check the wall AC outlet by using a meter or another electrical appliance such as a table lamp. If no power there replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker.

Does your microwave light up when you open the door?

If not, it could be a bad power cord, on/off switch AC cord or fuse.

Check these first.

If you cannot solve the problem, you'll probably need service.

Hope this helped.

The fuse is usually a 250V 15 or 20 AMP and can be found at any hardware store. As for those screws...those are special tamper proof screws made to keep the average consumer out of dangerous appliances. There's about 4000 volts inside a microwave oven when it is energized. That's why the manufacturers don't want the average Joe tampering with it. You can, however, buy the tool required to get inside the unit for a reasonable price. I think it's less than $30 and I know Craftsman makes it. The line fuse is located on or near the input line filter board. Just follow the input power cord and you will find it. Just keep in mind, that if the fuse is blown, it usually blows for a reason. You may have other problems. Let me know if this helps you.
