Question about Hotpoint RVM1435 Microwave Oven
Hi, I have a problem with a Sharp half pint microwave. I bought off Ebay- got here and plugged er in, it came on,when I set the time to run something "popped" in back now won't come on at all. Could it be a fuse? I have older recepticles and had to use an adapter so figure that's it. Caused the fuse to blow because no ground. HELP
The fuse should be located on an input line filter board INSIDE the microwave. You will need to unplug and remove the outside case to get to it. Simply follow where the power cord comes in and you should see a fuse mounted on a small circuit board somewhere. This is the line filter. The fuse should be a 20 amp appliance fuse that you can purchase at any hardware store. DO NOT attempt to re-energize the oven with the cover removed. There are dangerous voltages present in the high voltage circuit (about 13,000 - 14,000 VAC). Put the outside case back on before trying an op test. Let me know if this helps.
