No power is there a fuse for a Daewoo Microwave model # KOR811Q


The fuse is normally located behind the control panel or between the door switches.

There will also be a thermal fuse or thermostat on or near the magnetron and usually one on top of the oven cavity. If either of these is open, that will kill the oven until replaced.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety and disassembly information at our site, as well as service tips, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Microwave/convection oven simply lost power. not the outlet checked with hand mixer and worked find. is there a fuse that went out? how much to repair? thankx!


The fuse is usually located either between the door switches or on the floor of the oven behind the control panel.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout (TCO) / thermal fuse on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the magnetron thermostat to open.

Then when it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

If it goes dead or blows the breaker when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

We may have the service manual which we can upload for you. Please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you.

Fire in microwave


Seems like I've answered this one, too.

Two 20A fuses?? In a recent GE?

The interlock is a door switch, not a thermostat or thermal fuse. A thermostat will reset (unless defective) but thermal cutouts and thermal fuses are one-time devices.

If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

NOTE: There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

Overcooked potato overcooked the microwave


The magnetron probably overheated, blowing the thermal cutout / thermal fuse / thermostat mounted on it.

Is microwave dead?


It's probably an open thermostat or thermal cutout on or near the magnetron, or possibly the one on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

Once the thermal cutout is replaced and it's alive again, you may then find the magnetron is bad, too, and it runs but won't heat.

Microwave thermal fuse


First of all, be sure you have unplugged the microwave from the power. You can find exploded views of similar models (the PLMV168) here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 These drawings can be very useful. A screen on the end? Sounds like a sensor. This makes me very very concerned, your desire to remove some part, but you're not sure what it is, and we have no background as to what the oven is doing wrong, etc. We have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk If I can be of further help, feel free to contatc me there.

Sanyo over the range microwave


I would say the internal fuse or the thermostat / thermal cutout failed. That may be an indication of other problems, such as a bad door switch, bad magnetron, etc. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Microwave oven won't work


The most common causes of a microwave's being "dead" is a blown fuse and a blown thermal cutout (or thermostat) in the area of the magnetron.

Most repair warranties are only 30-90 days, but you might consider asking the servicer if they'll cover it. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your actual model number (like SCA1000DBB03, not Advantium 120) here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 That part is the thermal cutout (TCO) or thermal fuse. It's reference number 1430 on the first diagram listed there.
