Change Light Bulb Monogram zsc1001kss01


I have included a schematic of the interior of the built in Monogram Advantium Microwave oven Model KSC1001. The interior halogen light burned out and had to be replaced. GE service wanted $138 to come out & service it. I tried to find instructions on how to take it apart and remove the bulb & replace it on the WEB but had no luck with the Monogram series so I went to the dealer in Denver, CO and talked with their technicians and they gave me the schematic and sold me 2 bulbs for $11.00. The halogen bulbs can be purchased at Home Depot for about the same price. They are 35 watt with wide metal connectors.

Mine has 2 side trim pieces so these have to be removed first. They have latches on the top that slide behind the sides of the microwave and attach at the top. After removing the 4 screws holding the trim pieces, slide these upwards and then pull out to the sides. 2.) pull the microwave out and set it on a solid surface. 3.) there are approximately 23 screws that need to come out before you can slide & life the cover off the microwave 4.) Then look inside towards the front and left side (looking from the rear forward) for a small metal cover. There are 2 screws that hold it down. 5). Unscrew the 2 screws and gently lift the metal container up. This is the housing for the light bulb. 6.) gently pull the old bulb out and using gloves or a cloth insert the new bulb.You need to keep oils from your fingers from getting on the bulbs. The oils make the bulbs burn out quicker 7.) Put the container back and screw in the 2 screws being careful not to dislodge any wiring 8.) Slide the cover back on and replace all the screws 9.) plug it into an outlet and open the door to make sure the light works 10.) replace the microwave, plug it in and put the trim pieces back on. 11.) go to a movie with the money you just saved

Frigidaire gallery microwave light stays on and internal fan stays on


Good Afternoon Friend, thank you for your post!

I see that the internal light and fan continues to run on your Electrolux microwave with the door close. This sounds like the issue is related to a faulty door switch. I am fairly confident that an authorized service agent will be able to restore your microwave to its normal operating condition. You can often locate a qualified service technician on the manufacturer website. Hope this helps! - Z

Blowing fuse


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

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

If it goes dead or blows the breaker (or GFI) 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 it's intermittent or random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or a loose fuse holder, or even an intermittent fuse.

You should do a continuity test on the fuse while it's in the holder (with the microwave unplugged, of course) then turn the fuse by hand or take it out and put it back in, then test it again.

If you remove the fuse, then press the meter leads against the ends, it can allow internal contact to be made and make a bad fuse appear to be good.

If you had posted your full model number from the tag (or at least the brand) I could have probably helped better.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

Kenmore Microwave blows internal fuse


Is the fuse holder tight?

You shouldn't be able to easily rotate the fuse with a thumb and finger while it's in the holder.

If it's loose, that can cause a fuse to overheat and melt inside.

Is the internal cooling fan running?

When I say internal cooling fan, I do not mean the hood vent exhaust fan which you can turn on and off manually.

I'm instead talking about the internal fan which comes on automatically whenever you microwave.

The high voltage transformer may be failing.

This is usually accompanied by an electrical smell, but it may be slight enough that the cooling fan disperses it.

You can temporarily disconnect the fan and run it for about a minute (no longer - the magnetron will overheat) and then see if you can detect smoke or smell.

Be sure the loose connector is taped off so it doesn't contact any connections or get hit by a fan, etc.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

You can find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number at the Sears parts site.

But Sears parts can usually be obtained for far less here by entering either the part or model number.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:

(continuity can be good even though it is bad!)

Sharp Microwave Model R-1830: No power


A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

It may be the fuse, which is usually located behind the grille or on the floor of the oven behind the control panel or between the door switches.

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

These should read closed (virtually zero) on a continuity check.

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 went dead or when you plugged it in or opened or closed the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

If it's intermittent or random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or a loose fuse holder, or even an intermittent fuse.

You should do a continuity test on the fuse while it's in the holder (with the microwave unplugged, of course) then turn the fuse by hand or take it out and put it back in, then test it again.

If you remove the fuse, then press the meter leads against the ends, it can allow internal contact to be made and make a bad fuse appear to be good.

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.

You can usually find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number here at the Sears parts site but the best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics.

My microwave is brand new. When I close the door, the dish rotates and the light stays on. Help!


Test 3 Door Switches. Intermittent, Skipping, Maybe Burnt internally or Spade contacts Burnt. Door switches should Open/Close or Closed/Open. A Meter or Continuity Tester Works. Audible Sound Hearing Helps on Continuity Tester. Listen for Nice Clear open-Close or Close-Open sound. If no Sound or Skips ( Intermittent ) Just found Your Problem. One of the Door Switches is Not working right. Now You Can Make & Save Money by Doing it Yourself.
