Where is the fuse on mikeawave model 721.8004970 it not on botton of unit


I am guessing that this is a LG microwave. The fuse should be on the top of the fan housing. It is part number 50FZZA time delay fuse that should be available in any hardware/automobile store. 72180049700&ModelNum=72180049700">Fuse Time Delay

Has stopped working. light gone off at same time. plug fuse has not broke. any ideas ?


There is a fuse inside the microwave also.It is a ceramic fuse,usually 15A.It has to be replaced with another ceramic fuse of the same rating.Bear in mind,the fuse blew for a reason,so if it is the interior fuse replace it after a search for a fault.

How do I access fuse in a jmc7000adw? Unit is "dead", want to check fuse first before calling repair person


To check the fuse in the JMC7000adw you first should remove the power cord from the power source. Then remove the screws holding the outside cover of the microwave . The High Voltage circuitry may hold a residual charge that could be lethal so use appropriate care when near the High Voltage circuitry. The fuse holder is a plastic inline clamshell type that must be opened carefully with the fingers or pried open. The fuse holder is located above the micro-switches near the internal light socket. The fuse plugs into contacts soldered onto wires so carefully pull the contacts off each end of the fuse being careful not to get cut if the fuse breaks. Sometimes the blown fuse might come apart so you will need to force the fuse ends out of the contact using a small screwdriver or other small instrument that will fit into the end of the metal fuse contacts. After replacing the fuse with the appropriate size I suggest you might wish to see if the fuse blows again before reinstalling the cover. Most likely the fuse blows because of an overload in the circuitry or a short in the safety micro switches as noted in other posted solutions. These micro switches seem to be underrated for the current they may be carrying and the contacts will weld themselves together or intermittently stick together causing the fuse to blow as noted in my previous posting.

Does not come on


follows this steps and fix it. God bless you

Line Fuse




Every microwave oven has a line fuse. This fuse is designed to blow if too much current is drawn through the microwave circuitry. The fuse can be replaced, but the underlying issue should still be investigated and resolved. Otherwise the new fuse will blow also.

Main Control Board




If the microwave is not working the main control board may be defective. This is not common. When a microwave stops working the problem is usually the line fuse or within the high voltage circuit; either the high voltage capacitor, diode, transformer or magnetron.



Thermal Fuse




If the microwave is not working the thermal fuse may have blown. It can be tested for continuity. Watch our fuse testing video for more information.

Thermoprotector




If the microwave is not working the thermoprotector may have tripped. This is a safety device to prevent the microwave from overheating. It can be tested for continuity to see if it's blown.

I have a blown internal fuse on my JennAir M170b microwave. The fuse holder says 250V, 15A fuse, but the fuse that was in there is a 125V, 15A fuse. The micro plugs into a normal 110V circuit. Which type...


Hi,

The information on the fuse is the maximum rating. The holder may not match the rating.

The 'A' is the very important part of the size. You will need a 15 Amp fuse. The best fuse to use is 'ceramic'. You can find them at Radio Shack in the back of the store there are drawers with electrical parts.

15 Amp ceramic

Cooks Model 2115 microwave oven will not power on when connected to the 110v outlet. Can this be a fuse problem? If so, where is the fuse located?


Yes, is probably the fuse. I have fixed several microwaves with this problem and the fuse is almost always located just inside where the power cord enters the unit. Just remove the skin (usually screws on the back and BOTTOM also) test the fuse with a micro meter. If no contenuity, replace with same size, type and rated fuse. Most microwaves are 20amp fuse.

Is there a fuse in the line somewhere. I have


yes you have a fuse inside the microwave you have to remove the cover be very careful the high voltage capacitor could still be charged you will see the fuse where the power lead enters microwave if blown you must first find out why when replacing fuse buy proper microwave fuse or slow blow fuse remember safety first hope this helps

Possible fuse -- no power


Replacing a fuse Locate your fuse. Most microwave fuses look like the one pictured to the left. They are usually an inch or two long. Each end is metallic and the center is either ceramic or glass.
To get to the fuse, remove the outer cabinet of the unit, which is usually held in place with a few screws. Once the outer cabinet is removed, follow the power cord into the unit. It will take you to the fuse holder, where the fuse sits. The fuse holder is located two or three inches into the unit, and may be attached to a power board.
Decide if your fuse is blown. A blown glass fuse will produce flash burn marks on nearby surfaces, or it will be completely black on the inside. The internal fuse wire (filament) will be melted and blackened. Ceramic fuses give no outward signs of having blown. To determine if a ceramic fuse is blown, test it with an ohmmeter. If the ohmmeter reads zero ohms, your fuse is fine. A reading of infinite ohms means your fuse is blown.
Replace the blown fuse. Pop it out of its holder and snap in a new one. You can squeeze the fuse clips together with your fingers in order to tighten their grip. Replace the unit's outer cabinet, plug it back in, and test to see if it is running properly. DO NOT run the microwave with nothing in it.
NOTE: Fuses do not usually blow on their own. A fuse may blow because of problems with the interlock switches or with high voltage circuitry. It is also possible, though rare, that a power surge will cause a fuse to blow.

Fuse


I'm confused! You say you cannot read? OR, You cannot read the fuse. Remember on fuses, voltage rating is as important as amps. What is the make and model? is there a diagram of the wiring inside? get someone to read the amps (fuse) to you.
Note: Most common is a 15amp (for M/W Oven). Can be purchased at most Hardware Stores.
CAUTION!! Do not over-rate or under-rate the fuse. If it blows with the correct fuse in it Do Not put in a higher amperage fuse!! Can everyone say FIRE!!
