when the machine was flashing door this was telling you that either the door was not shut properly, try it again, or the interlock switch was faulty, chances are its probably shorted out and blown the circuit board, take care and remove the board to check for signs of blowing, if no signs then i would replace the interlock and start from there, ps i am a retired engineer and have had the same machine myself

SOURCE: microwave dead

First, there is an outlet. Plug in something else. Inside the key panel, there are fuses and a thermo sensor. Either may be bad. The thermosensor is about the diameter of a dime, black and 3/8 inch thick...attached to the wall of the chamber. All should have continuity.

SOURCE: No power from Whirlpool.

The problem was a defective switch. There are 3 switches on mine. 1 on the top door latch, and 2 on the bottom. one of the switches on the bottom connected the power and neutral together, unless it was activated at the same time as the other 2, causing the breaker to trip or the internal fuse to blow. When unhooking the wire going from this switch to the other switch, everything works great now. Though I still need to replace the switch.

And for Basic 1. Yes my microwave did have a fuse in it it's ceramic, I got a pack of them at Radio Shack 4 for 3$ 250V 20 Amp. There should be a wiring diagram inside the microwave, mine was inside a black bag, so it may be hard to see.

Mine was up top next to the fuse behind the Plastic Grill and then a small metal grill. Some are behind the control panel, to fix this remove the screw at the top and then slide the control panel up and it should unhinge.

Hi 2002tii

These are a cool old machine. They use the cdm1 laser mechanism that was revered in its day for high performance. If you have voltage available after the rectifier stages, check the 3 pin voltage regulators. Marked as 78xx for positive regulator, and 79xx for negative. the xx gives you the voltage they are supposed to be putting out. They commonly fail, also check the same for dry solder joint. resolder them anyway if you are unsure. If all the regulators check out, then also check low value flame proof resistors in the power supply rails. Get back to me here again and let me know how you got on. Good Luck

Well I found the problem - fuse had blown.

There is a circuit diagram on the back of the washer that allowed me to locate the fuse. Take off the rear top plastic panel (behind the folding lid) by removing the two screws on the back. Inside close to the power cord you will find a fuse holder and an in-line ceramic fuse, 125V 12A. I checked mine for continuity and it had blown (as to why, I don't know yet - maybe the motor drew too much current with a large wash load?) - anyways, I replaced the fuse and everything works now!

GE oven is completely unresponsive but I have power to the plug that goes to the board. I see no obvious signs of damage, no burnt anything, not even a smell of burnt stuff.

Hi, Did you check the fuses on the stove. If it was built before and after model year 2000 there still should be fuses. If your stove is still under warrenty you may be able to get it fixxed for free. Good luck.

Hitach lcd tv dead, no standby light. Power board Vestel 17pw26-1 v4 no signs of burnout/swolen caps.

You can pick up a cheap multimeter at radio shack, or Harbor Freight (if one is in your town). Or of you know someone who has a multimeter you could borrow, that would be even better. You will want to set your meter to ac volts, and check for 110vac across the input terminal on the power supply board. I'm willing to bet you have a dead power supply.

Everything was working fine, now we get no panel lights, the dryer light doesn't, dead in the water! Checked the plug...unplugged it and plugged it back in. Checked the circuit breaker...ok. What next?

I'm sorry to tell you that you need hands on service.

You may have an electronic malfunction and that only a trained technician can diagnose!

Microwave jsut went dead. No power, and there is power at the outlet.

check the fuse inside, watch out with those can capacitors as they can give you a nasty shock. For your protection unplug the microwave and wait 24 hours to let the capacitors discharge, then open and find fuse which is usually near the power supply, check fuse, if dead replace it.
