Question about Frigidaire PLMV168 Microwave Oven
If you're getting power at the outlet, the most common problems causing a "dead" condition are a bad thermostat (or thermal cutout / thermal fuse) on or near the magnetron, a blown internal fuse, or a problerm on the control circuit board.

Blown 20 amp fuse inside the cabinet. You could try just replacing the fuse, but experience on these says that it blew out for a reason. Something has shorted out inside the cabinet; magnetron, transformer... I highly recommend contacting a local appliance repair company and have them come diagnose this for you. They'll have to remove it from above the stove to gain access for diagnosis, big job! I know this is not what you wanna hear, but they are trained on these and have the necessary tools for removal and proper diagnosis. (plus, if they mess anything up getting it down from there... they are insured) To make things go faster, remember to tell the dispatcher that it's an over the range microwave... this way, the tech will be sure to bring the necessary tools on the first trip.
