Question about Microwave Ovens
If your microwave oven doesn't seem to work at all, the first thing that we check is Fuse(s) as usually, when your if the microwave oven doesn't work at all, it means the internal fuse (thermal fuse) is blown. This fuse protects both you and the oven. When it blows, you need to have a qualified appliance repair technician replace it. Please check the Fuses again. If the fuse isn't the problem, check the door hooks and the door-release button. When these are broken, the door switch doesn't activate, so the oven can't work.
If both of them are fine then most microwaves today have a flame-oven thermostat-safety built into them. This oven thermostat will open up (no continuity) when something has been overheated or set on fire in the oven. Usually the thermostat for the oven is on the top area. The flame-oven sensor-thermostat is suppose to be closed (full continuity ) all the time and will open up (no continuity ) when needed, like when something like a small fire in the oven occurs.
