Internal fuse needs to be replaced

It is a 15 amp ceramic time delay fuse, 3/4 in long, 3/16 in diameter. I can't find it anywhere. Bussman doesn't list it. Any ideas?

Fuse Specifications


Suresh,
Most of the time you will need either a 15 amp or 20 amp fuse for your microwave. You will want a ceramic fuse and if you still have your old one, the amp rating and all info you need will be stamped on one of the silver collars at each end of the fuse. Hope this helps!

I replaced clock panel turn power on nothing is there a code


If no display---you may have a bad fuse. It should be located behind the control panel. The fuse will look like the old auto glass fuses about 1/4 diameter and 1 1/4 inch long but made out of a ceramic material you can't see through. Color could be white--brown or a gray color. Amp size will be stamped on the end usually 15 or 20 amps.

Blowing breaker


In general house hold circuit breaker of the house is 15 Amps or 20 Amps.

Either you have defected (weak) circuit breaker and wiring or bad Microwave oven.

The 99.99 % house hold Microwave ovens pull less than 15 Amps. They may have internal ceramic 15A fuse or 15 Amp internal circuit breaker.

To isolate your problem:

1. Plug your Microwave oven to different areas (different electrical circuit) if the different circuit breaker still trips... your Microwave oven has a short - Most of them has a small ceramic fuse 15 amps fuse.-also check some inter lock switches at door .

2. If the Microwave oven works Ok then you may have:

2a. You may overload the existing electrical circuit, try to unplug some other appliances

2b. You may have bad electrical outlet receptacle (Replace it with the same type , - may need helps from licensed electrician)

2c. Weak or defect house hold circuit breaker. (Replace it with the same type , brand - may need helps from licensed electrician)

I have a blown internal fuse on my JennAir M170b microwave. The fuse holder says 250V, 15A fuse, but the fuse that was in there is a 125V, 15A fuse. The micro plugs into a normal 110V circuit. Which type...


Hi,

The information on the fuse is the maximum rating. The holder may not match the rating.

The 'A' is the very important part of the size. You will need a 15 Amp fuse. The best fuse to use is 'ceramic'. You can find them at Radio Shack in the back of the store there are drawers with electrical parts.

15 Amp ceramic

Ok , I replaced the fuse checked all connections and checked plug for power ! Still my lg lmv1630st will not show any power at all . What gives?


by replacing the fuse you meant the house circuit fuse or the microwaves internal fuse? and by conncetions your talking the internal wiring inside the case of the unit or wiring from the plug? if not its your 15 or 20 amp ceramic fuse inside the unit,if thats blown replace,but chk h.v.diode,v.v. cap,triac,control board, mis-adjusted interlock safety door switch,and lastly the mag could be defective

Fuse is blown


It's 20mm !!
It will have failed for a reason.
At 15amps, I'm guessing your Microwave has a grill too.
It could just be a bulb failure causing the fuse to blow.
Replace it and try again.
If the oven works but no light, that was the cause.
