Question about KitchenAid KCMS135 Microwave Oven
Replaced the ceramic fuse (20A), closed the cover, plugged in to power, started with 1 minute quick - Loud sound from microwave for a second - No display, blown fuse - Repeated for another fuse same results What should I be looking for?
Either the high voltage diode,capacitor,or the magnetron tube is dead shorted,remove the leads off the magnetron tube,but check the diode and capacitor with an ohmmeter to check these for a shorted condition before trying a new fuse,if it builds high voltage then its the mag tube

Your owner's manual should tell you how to remove the stirrer cover to check it.
