Question about Maytag MMV1153A Microwave Oven
Could you tell me how to find and replace the fuse?
First a warning microwaves can be dangerous there is a lot of voltage in there waiting to get out and if you touch the capacitor you will get shocked and seriously injured so take care,the cover must be removed by takeing out the screws at the back of the panel sometimes there are screws at the sides or underneath.then look on both sides one side will have a fan and a big thing on the base this is your transformer(do not touch)you will see a wire with a larger plastic tube in the middle from the transformer(do not touch) that goes to a silver device with two wire attached this is the apacitor(really do not touch this can kill you)take a pair of well insulated long nose pliers and pull the wire with the plastic tube from the capacitor first the pull it from the transformer turn the tube in opposite direction to open you will see visually if the fuse is blown if so replace and reverse process to reasemble there is also some times a fuse on the pc board(if you have one)located behind the display panel normally a white ceramic fuse and on most machines whe the power cable comes inside the machine it is joined to a pc board there is normally a glass or ceramic fuse there check these first before going to the mains fuse between the transformer and the capacitor please again this is a dangerous piece of equipment respect it or it will bite you
