Blowing fuse problems

Hello, Actually my oven is a MIDEA brand (whatever no name brand that is) and the problem is with the mains fuse. After I repaired some contacts problem that prevented the oven to start microwaves when I close the door (the contact wasn't turned) now I have a problem with the fuse. It blew up after one day of the initial repair. I have dissasembled the oven, done a quick check and replaced the fuse. I've done some testing, all seemed to be ok, the oven worked properly, no fuse blowing out, no nothing. After some hours, next day when I tried to use the oven the fuse blew again. Once again I've dissasembled the oven, did some checks - all ok, oven working - next day the same :). The fuse blows when I open the door, in the same moment. After I change it I can power on the oven, all works, but after some 15-20hours when I open the door the fuse blows out instantly. Could anyone help me. I have all the tools and can change components or other stuff, but my field of expertise is laptop and desktop repairs not ovens.

Re: Blowing fuse problems

The door latch switches, and monitor switch assembly needs adjusting. With the door open the two latch switches should be normally open,and the monitor switch closed. Opposite way when door is closed. MAKE sure oven is unplugged before testing

Why is my GE Advantium SCA2001 blowing the main fuse?

Yeah pal, you've not gone deep enough yet. You'll find a power wire bare inside the unit, pull it apart and tape that wire up to stop it from grounding out and blowing the fuse.

My Maytag Microwave is blowing the 250v- 20a fuse behind the key panel on the black wire. It melted the fuse holder mounted to the main body of the unit. Any thoughts on why?

The magnetron is shorted, the keypad control board is bad, blowing fuses. If less than 7 years old it has a inverter board that can be trouble, But with the level of work and parts it will easily exceed the cost of a new microwave oven.

Hi, I stupidly turned on my brand new Francis X7 machine without using a transformer (I bought it from the US, used it in Malaysia), and of course, something blew, and it now doesn't work at all. Any...

The machine is made to work with 120 volts and you have plugged this on a 220 volt mains circuit thereby blowing up the fuse, or the power circuit, possible heater and the main controller unit board.
A step down transformer was needed to work this unit safely . Now unless the unit is opened the damage cannot be confirmed but if you are lucky the fuse would ahve blown and saved the rest. if so test it with a new fuse using a 220 to 120 volt convertor.( transformer with good rating)

Some of the simplest microwave oven problems that cause microwaves to stop working are easily fixable,

Bad interlock switches or a misaligned door can cause the oven's fuses to blow or just cause it to not start when you push the Start button. This problem can be easily resolved by locating and replacing the defective switches or by realigning the door, depending on the problem.

One old-school problem of sorts is a blown fuse due to a power surge or just plain old age if the oven's been in your use for several years. The answer is simple in this case, just replace the fuse and your oven should spark into life good as new. On a related note, there have been some rare cases when the main fuse may actually be the causing some strange symptoms, in this case as well replacing the faulty fuse is the answer.

In some cases you might have a buggy oven, and we're not talking about electric bugs, we're talking about real bugs making a nest in yourmicrowave oven, it's been known to happen because the circuit board is a nice warm and safe place for bugs.

But what should you do when you're faced with a faulty microwave, should you repair it or replace it?If you have an old unit,Considering the fact that they're relatively cheap by most standards, replacing amicrowave oven will usually prove to be the better way of going about rather than repairing it because the repair bill will usually be close if not over the price of a new unit.

Check power from the supply to the main board. If there is no or low power coming from the supply, then the power supply is bad.

Fuse keeps blowing.

It appears like the high voltage capacitor is shorted or the diode connected to the capacitor. You might want to check the monitoring switch as well if the capacitor and diode are good.
