Location of fuse

The fuse should be on the right side of your microwave ,looking in front of the oven. You need to open it and you will see it.

Whirlpool gold YGH5184XPS-0 fuse location, I believe i blew a fuse and cant find the location, the thing worked fine and then i shut the door and lost all power, either the door latch is broken or the...

Mike - Unplug the unit and unscrew about 4 screws on the top and then the side panel and the fuse will be in that location.

Note: If the fuse looks brown, it's definetly blown, you can get the same fuse at your local Radio Shack for about $0.97. hope this helps

Unplug microwave, remove top, go to the right where keypad is located, follow the wire to the circuit board, look for a silver rectangular capacitor and short a screwdriver over the 2 points to remove any remainder of voltage. There should a small fuse clipped in near by, replace with same current rating, assemble before testing, carries lethal voltages when turned on.

Fuse location for fan motor/lights??

Unplug microwave, remove the top cover "several screws" fuse location under keypad and near the high voltage capacitor "silver and rectangle in shape" fuse is a ceramic type, must be replaced with identical fuse and rating, and don't forget to discharge capacitor with "long handle screwdriver"

There seems to be no power. No clock. no nothing. It was working fine and then jut stopped. Circuit is not tripped. I tried unplugging and plugging again.

most likely you will have to remove the louvers or trim above the cooking cavity to get to the fuse, look for screws holding the trim/louvers on, if no screws are apparent, the piece may slide to the left or right and pop off.

Unplug your microwave. Although it might seem like no electrical current could possibly be running through your appliance, it could still have stored electrical current somewhere in the system. Be safe rather than sorry and unplug it before you begin.

    Find the wiring diagram for your model of GE microwave. You can contact GE directly to get this if you cannot locate your owner's manual. Note the fuse locations and get a screwdriver. Some GE fuses are located under the louvers, while others are located in the door.

  • 3

    Open up the microwave and locate the blown fuse. Sometimes you cannot determine a blown fuse by visual inspection so check it with a multimeter for continuity across the terminals.

  • 4

    Replace the blown fuse. Go to your local hardware store and pick up a matching fuse. Make sure you check the model numbers of the fuse as well to be sure you get the right component. Install the new fuse and put everything back together.

  • 5

    Check the continuity of the circuit if you continue to have power problems. If you have a problem with continuity in the circuit, then you may have a bigger problem than just a blown fuse. Sometimes a power surge will fry a GE microwave's circuit board, which you will need to replace.

    I have the model FMAC101D1PS and now it's not heating. I press the minutes to heat, it run but it doesn't heat anyting.

    Most likely causes are an open thermal protector or thermal fuse but could also be blown fuse in HV area of microwave (somewhat uncommon in domestic microwaves).
    Less likely causes are failure of other parts in the HV area.

    If the main power fuse is located in the primary of the high voltage transformer rather then at the line input, the clock and touchpad will work but the fuse will blow upon initiating a cook cycle. Or, if the fuse has already blown there will simply be no heating action once the cook cycle is started. There are other variations depending on whether the cooling fan, oven light, and so forth are located down stream of the fuse.

    Some models may have a separate high voltage fuse. If this is blown, there will be no heating but no other symptoms. However, high voltage fuses are somewhat rare on domestic ovens.

    A number of failures can result in the fuse NOT blowing but still no heat:

    • Bad connections - these may be almost anywhere in the microwave generator or the primary circuit of the HV transformer. A common location is at the crimp connections to the magnetron filament as they are high current and can overheat and result in no or intermittent contact. See the section: See the section: Testing the magnetron (see repair manual link below).
    • Open thermal protector - usually located on magnetron case. Test for continuity. It should read as a dead short - near zero ohms. See the section: Testing thermal protectors and thermal fuses (see repair manual link below).
    • Open thermal fuse - some ovens have one of these in the primary circuit. It may be in either connection to the HV transformer or elsewhere. Test for continuity. It should read as a dead short - near zero ohms.
    • For the various HV parts and how to test them follow this link: Microwave Repair Manual link.

    A shorted HV diode, magnetron, or certain parts of the HV wiring would probably result in a loud hum from the HV transformer but will likely not blow the main fuse. (However, the HV fuse - not present on most domestic ovens - might blow.)

    Depending on design, a number of other component failures could result in no heat as well including a defective relay or triac, interlock switch(s), and controller.

    Jennair jmc8130dds fuse blown

    I apologize for not getting back to you sooner. It took me a while to locate the information you requested. To answer your initial question, "YES" you will have to pull the whole unit out to access the fuse. The fuse is located on the input filter assembly board inside the oven. You will need to remove the exterior case to access it. If you go to you can find helpful illustrations, along with part numbers. Just type in the model number you provided and look at drawing number 5. This is a list of all the internal controls. The fuse is listed as item number 4 in the illustration and mounted to the filter assembly (item 18). You can purchase these appliance fuses at any hardware store as long as they are rated the same (20 AMP). CAUTION: Please ensure you UNPLUG the unit before servcing any internal components. I hope you find this information helpful. If you need additional assistance, please let me know.
