For some reason , my microwave keeps blowing the fuse. Every-time I plug it in , it sparks and blows the fuse/trips the breaker. I dont think its the door switch because it has nothing to do with being...


Your unit is drawing way too much power, especially before you even activate the heater & fan modules. Could be dozens of causes. First line of defense is to check the power cord for a short. Consider your expertise and unit's warranty before opening it up. Check, trace and/or replace the cord. Don't ignore radiation exposure warnings, some shields are critical.

No power to microwave


Hello

Check the Power Cord

Verify that the power cord is properly connected the outlet; the plug might have been removed to make way for another appliance. Do not connect the microwave to an outlet via an extension cord or plug adapter; the oven must be directly connected to an outlet.
Switch the Outlet on

Turn the outlet on, if possible, using the switch on the wall behind the counter or on the plug itself. Some microwaves have a separate power switch that must be in the correct position before you can begin cooking.
Reset the Oven

Unplug the oven, wait a few seconds and reconnect the power. A power surge could have temporarily rendered the oven inoperable. The oven should start up as normal when you connect the plug to the outlet.
Check the Fuses and Breakers

See that the fuse or breaker protecting the oven's circuit is still active. Replace the fuse if it has blown, or reset the breaker to restore power to the oven. Stop using the microwave if it repeatedly blows fuses or trips breakers.

It just has no power. Nothing happened, I just went to use it and it was dead.


The main fuse is blown, "ceramic type" usually caused by a defective door switch.

My GE1340 built-in microwave stopped working completely. It is just dead and does not respond when you push buttons. No power. Checked circuit breakers - all are fine. Any ideas? Is it kaput?


There is usually a 125V, 20 AMP line fuse inside most microwave ovens. It will be mounted at the point where the power cord enters the back of the unit, in line with the power cord, or on a small circuit card called a line filter. Unfortunately, you will need to uninstall the oven (if this is an over the range model), UNPLUG it and remove the exterior case to access. The case comes off in various ways depending on manufacturer and model. Parts are available at any of the following websites: searspartsdirect.com pcappliancerepair.com appliancepartspros.com repairclinic.com The first three sites include illustrated parts listings that can help you locate and properly identify any parts you may need. The microwave oven may also equipped with various thermostats that (if blown) can cause similar symptoms to that of a blown line fuse. So, if the line fuse is NOT blown, you may want to check all the thermostats to see if they are still good. You will need to remove each one and measure across the terminals with a multimeter. A good reading is 0 ohms. NOTE: The thermostats typically will trip if the oven cavity has been overheated. Cooking items that are high heat producers such as popcorn or baked potatoes in rapid succession can often cause this problem. Allowing the oven cavity to cool a few minutes with the door open between cooking can prevent this from occurring.


If the line fuse is blown, you can usually purchase a box of fuses at a hardware store for just a little more than what the manufacturer charges for a single fuse. 125V, 20AMP Ceramic Slow Blow fuses are recommended.

If you have any questions, or need additional assistance troubleshooting, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

NOTE: Make sure you take any resistance readings with the microwave UNPLUGGED and the component under test isolated (removed) from the circuit. These ovens can blow a fuse by simply sitting idle. This can occur from any power fluctuations, brown outs, voltage spikes, etc. Or, it could be the symptom of a component that may have failed. If you find the internal fuse blown and replace it, only to have it blow again, you have a more significant problem than a simple blown fuse.

My Microwave just died. I hit Stop/clear and it stopped all power. I checked the circuit breaker and the switch, it is good.. Any idea what happened?


Remove the case ... look for then check the fuse you will find on the floor of the device. If it is blown, find a replacement at your local hardware store.

While cooking it just quit. Checked circuit breaker & was ok. I have no schematic of the inside so I haven't taken apart yet to see if there may be an inside fuse.

9 amps is approx. correct. Does magnatron make an odd sound when running? If not, you will need to discharge cap then clean terminals with alcahol. Replace diode as well. Should run correctly.If blows again, replace magnatron. Suggest you put a 12 amp fast blow fuse in circuit and nor a 20 fuse.If you dont have a grill or an oven, use a 10 amp fuse.

No power to microwave?


blown fuse take outer casing off and replace the blown fuse.
You can use a piece of tin foil around the fuse until you are able to replace the fuse.
