Question about Frigidaire PLMV169DC Microwave Oven
Lost power outlet is goo breaker is good unplugged and ran ext cord to it still no power
The service manual is here.
It may be a defective 20A fuse, a blown magnetron temperature fuse, or a problem on the control circuit board, which can be economically repaired.
There is a YouTube video here showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
Once the controller is off, you should be able to access the magnetron's temperature fuse for testing and possible replacement.
You can order parts from the Pros here.

Tips for a great answer:
Unplug your microwave and turn it around and remove the screws holding cover on and then remove the cover. Look for where the power cord goes into the back of the unit and follow the black wire from the cord to where it ends. It should stop an either a circuit board or a fuse holder. Make sure that you replace the fuse with the same amperage fuse as what you take out. You will find the amp rating stamped on one of the silver collars on each end of the fuse. Good luck!

(the following is from http://www.kellerstudio.de/repairfaq/sam/micfaq.htm#mictotdo)
The microwave oven may be powered from a GFCI outlet or downstream of one and the GFCI may have tripped. (Removing a broken oven lamp has been known to happen.) The GFCI outlet may not be in an obvious location but first check the countertop outlets. The tripped GFCI could be in the garage or almost anywhere else! Pushing the RESET button may be all that's needed.
Next, try to set the clock. With some ovens the screen will be totally blank following a power outage - there may be nothing wrong with it. Furthermore, some ovens will not allow you perform any cooking related actions until the clock is set to a valid time.
If those are not the problems, then the main fuse is the most likely suspect for a totally dead microwave.
Remember, while you can do some repairs on you microwave, what you don't know can kill you... even on an unplugged microwave, so make sure you understand the dangers and how to reduce them before you try anything inside a microwave. If you want to do more yourself, let me know and I will point you in the direction of some good resources.
