SOURCE: Microwave blew up after cooking an egg

Yes the internal fuse will have blown. I would also think the door latch switches and monitor switch will also need re adjustment

You can fix it without the aid of a repairman. Simply unplug the microwave and remove the outer casing. There should be a few screws around the bottom edge and back panel. Once you have the unit open, look for where the power cord comes in. There should be a circuit board with a fuse mounted to it. This is your input line filter. The fuse should be a 20 amp appliance fuse that you can pick up at any hardware store (Lowe's and Home Depot both carry them). DO NOT op test with the outer casing removed. Potentials of about 14,000 volts are present in the high voltage network of a microwave oven. Close the unit up BEFORE you power it back up. Let me know if this helps.

SOURCE: Emerson Microwave Model MW8119SB found blown

Chances are that either the diode or capacitor are shorted. Be very careful, the capacitor can store a charge and should be discharged first for safety. Hope that helps...

My Emerson Microwave MW9117W has lost power and was wondering if there was a fuse or something that needed replacing


There are fuses inside. The big thing is to figure out why the fuse went bad. either something shorted and blew the fuse, or it got hot and went bad due to bad connections at fuse holder. or maybe a bad door switch blew the fuse. I have also had fuses just get old and tired., and just needed to be replaced.

GE JES2150MRSA f3 code microwave turns on by itself,beeps out of control starts cooking by itself f3 is a control panel error


"F3" means you have a shorting membrane keypad.

Looking at the parts list for model JES2150MRSA, only the glass turntable and turntable support are listed, so it appears this is one of those unsupported "doorbuster" models.

If it's still in warranty, it can be exchanged. If not, it should be disposed of.

What causes microwave to blow new fuse?


The only thing inside a microwave oven that draws enough current to blow a fuse is the magnetron that generates the microwaves to provide the cooking power. Based on the age of the unit (approx 15 years) it is most likely best to just replace it as repairs at that level are not cost effective. Newer units cook better and faster using less power these days.

Whirlpool Microwave MH6700xW-0 Blows internal fuses regulary


Assuming your power line voltage is okay, it would not surprise me that after 27 years, your high voltage capacitor is drying out and increasing its capacitance. This will cause variance in the high voltage output, which can stress the magnetron and increase current consumption.

Panasonic microwave NNP295SF shuts off after 15 seconds


It is going to be one of three things, the magnetron, " heart of the microwave oven " the inverter board, " if 7 years or less" and finally the keypad control board. In order to break this down, it will require testing to narrow the field. But what ever choice is made, the parts and labour are going to be the big factor when it comes to cost.

My jmc7000 jenn-air blew a circuit breaker. No power to the unit. There is power to the recepticle. I'm wondering if it blew a circuit breaker, does that mean the problem is most likely a big problem...


Yau say a few conflicting things. First you wonder if it blew a breaker, and then say you have power to the receptacle. If you have poer to your receptacle your breaker if not tripped. There are NO breakers Inside of the Microwave. Only 1 time fuses. So, if your init is dead it has probably blown a fuse inside of the unit. If that is the case. Probably shorted HIgh volt capacitor would be my first guess. If it is jsut dead. it can be other things than just a blown fuse. bad thermal protectors, bad low voltage transformer on main circuit board. Burnt wires. Anything that will cause it to lose power inside the unit. From bad parts to bad connections.

I think the fuse blew on my emerson microwave. Can I check myself by removing the rear panel?


Unplug the power. Remove the screws, on the back that secure the outer case and slide it off to the rear. Check near the control panel for a clear glass fuse. If it is bad, make sure to replace it with one that has the same ratings.
