Most Frequent Causes for Microwave not working Thermal Fuse

The thermal fuse cuts off power to the microwave if the microwave overheats. To determine if the thermal fuse has blown, use a multimeter to test it for continuity. If the fuse does not have continuity, replace it. The thermal fuse cannot be reset-if the fuse is blown, it must be replaced. (Caution: The microwave oven can store thousands of volts of electricity in its high voltage capacitor, even after the microwave oven has been unplugged. Due to the potential for electric shock, it is extremely dangerous to replace the electronic components in a microwave.

The microwave clicks will not turn on


Then you have blown a fuse. Check inside the oven chamber and look for missing powder paint or signs of arcing, if so dispose of the microwave. If the inside is good remove all the screws and remove the cover. Replace the fuse. If the magnetron was making louder noises prior then replace the magnetron. Since the fuse went the giant capacitor is likely bad. While the cabinet is open make sure to look for burned wires, check the continuity of thermal cutoffs, and check the main circuit-board for burned traces or components. The relays in most electronics are known for arcing (spot welding) and staying in the wrong position. Tap them hard with the back end of a screwdriver. During all of this use safe electrical practices by having the power cord unplugged. The capacitor could still have a high charge on it so be careful.

Shuts off without cause


The fuse may have been busted. Try opening the microwave and replace the fuse which you can do it yourself - trust me. The old fuse would probably have darker/burned portion.

Replaced 20amp fuse that was blown. new fuse did not blow, but oven is still dead.


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If your microwave oven doesn't seem to work at all, check these: Fuses Door switch 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

I have replaced the fuse in the # cmw 100 but it blows as soon as i plug it in


When the fuse goes on a microwave, if you can't find any burned wires touching the frame, it is usually a bad capacitor... sometimes the magnetron needs replacing too.

Cuisinart CMW-100 , wont heat or turn the table? all else o.k.


We changed the 20amp fuse and that was not the problem so we returned it to Macy's. If anyone knows of a reliable brand of microwave today please let us know. All the reviews on microwave ovens recently are bad.
