Well first thing you need to do is open the cabinet doors above the microwave and unplug it wait 15 minutes before you do anything else to allow the Capacitor drain its power. Then you should see 2 screws on cabinet floor above microwave, you might want a second person there to hold the microwave from falling. After screws are out lean the front towards you and lift up on the back as it is sitting on a lip, then set Microwave on a towel on your counter or floor your choice. you then need to remove the screws to the cabinet on both sides and back, you can now replace the cord..... It's not a super difficult job but if you have problems with the weight of the microwave you can always call a professional.

How do I replace the fuse in this unidentified microwave oven?


Chantal,
Unplug your microwave and turn it around and remove the screws holding cover on and then remove the cover. Be very careful about touching electrical connections because there can still be some live current stored in the capacitor. Look for where the power cord goes into the back of the unit and follow the black wire from the cord to where it ends. It should stop an either a circuit board or a fuse holder. Make sure that you replace the fuse with the same amperage fuse as what you take out. You will find the amp rating stamped on one of the silver collars on each end of the fuse. Good luck!

I have a domestic model#dotr12cb it is 100 percent dead no lights no fan no clock it's like it's not plugged in but it is and there is power to the plug could you tell me what parts I need to replace


Gary,
It sounds like you might have a blown fuse. Use the following steps to find your fuse. Unplug your microwave and turn it around and remove the screws holding cover on and then remove the cover. Be very careful about touching electrical connections because there can still be some live current stored in the capacitor. Look for where the power cord goes into the back of the unit and follow the black wire from the cord to where it ends. It should stop an either a circuit board or a fuse holder. Make sure that you replace the fuse with the same amperage fuse as what you take out. You will find the amp rating stamped on one of the silver collars on each end of the fuse. Good luck!

Replace power cord


Get replacement cord.
Remove cover (remove screws and pull cover from the rear away from front)
If cord is pin plugged then remove one colour at a time and replace with same colour.
If soldered then you need tools (take it to repair centre)
Replace cover and screws

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.

My coffee maker wont turn on


Many coffee makers use neon bulbs to indicate that power is on. These do burn out after a while, but replacement is usually somewhat difficult. In this case, the coffee maker still works; you just don't have the immediate visual indication.

Many of the urn-type coffee pots have problems with the power cord breaking where it goes into the pot. To fix this, you need to remove the bottom, cut the cord where it is broken (on the outside of the pot), strip it back to match the part of the cord remaining inside the pot and crimp on new terminals of the same kind used on the original ends. The hardest part is squeezing the strain relief clamp where the cord enters the pot to remove it, and putting it back on. Study it carefully as it you remove it from the cord so you know how it works. To avoid a repeat of the same problem (and buying a new cord), be careful not twist the cord or bend it too tightly at the strain relief. NOTE: one of the wires in the power cord has a rib on the outer jacket. This is the neutral wire. Make sure it connects to the same place inside the pot as the original neutral.

Other failure points are at the power switch, or (rarely) the heater element. I've seen a programmable coffee maker with a burned-out relay (magnetic switch in a black plastic box on the circuit board). The clock and timer worked, but the heater wasn't getting any power. That part is about $5.

The easiest way to identify the problem is with an ohmmeter. Start by removing the bottom of the coffee maker (unplug it first!). Identify the heater terminals (the heater looks like a small version of the one in your oven and has either screw or slip-on terminals). Connect one of the ohmmeter test leads to each heater terminal to measure the heater resistance (typically 5 - 20 Ohms). If you have a basic (non-programmable) coffee maker, turn on the power switch and measure the resistance from each terminal to each prong on the plug. You should read either nearly zero ohms, or the heater resistance plus not more than a few tenths of an ohm. If you read open to one prong of the plug, you are on the track. Trace where the wire from that heater terminal goes. If it goes to the power switch, check the resistance of the power switch in the on position. If the reading is more than a couple of tenths of an ohm, the switch has dirty contacts, or it's broken or burned out. If you have a good connection from the heater to the power line side of the switch, but you get open from there to the hot side of the plug, the power cord is bad. Likewise, if you get an open reading from the other heater terminal to the neutral side of the plug, the cord is bad.

Programmable coffee makers have a similar troubleshooting procedure, except that you have to check for live AC voltage with the pot plugged in - this is not something to try if you aren't trained in the safe way to do this.

The oven is totally dead. No light, fan etc. Replaced fuse internally, found no current at the fuse. Outlet has 120 v. Oven was run empty prior to going dead! Any thoughts?


check power between power cord connection and inernal fuse,start at cord connection and work way to fuse conn.eliminating possibe problem area

MY whirlpool microwave model#mh6100xybo, quit working in the middle of reheating.


Usually when a microwave regardless of brand quits mid cycle the main fuse has failed. It is easily located as it will be the very first connection point off of the end of the power cord. Remove all of the chassis screws usually 4 on the sides and 6 on the back of the unit. Then begin lifting the chassis up at about a 15 deg angle and pull to the rear, Once the chassis is removed be very careful no to touch the large capacitor as it will still have a considerable charge. Locate the power fuse by following the power cord to the white and black terminals and remove the fuse. Purchase an exact replacement fuse and replace it. Reinstall the chassis cover without the screws and test the function of the unit by heating a cup of water until it boils. If it passes this simple test it should be fine. If it works momentarily and then quits the power diode has probably failed. The power diode is a 2.5 inch long and 0.5 inch wide and black located either on the bottom of the chassis or the inside back panel. This can be tested with an ohm meter by testing resistance. Set the meter to any ohm setting and place the test leads one on each terminal. The power diode should only read in one direction. If it reads in both directions (reverse the position of the test leads on the terminals) then the power diode has failed and will need to be replaced.

Microwave ws cooking and I heard a funny sound. Now absolutely nothing..no power..nothing..?? wont even turn on...


Ok, this may have been the in line fuse that has failed or , the high limit capacitor may have failed as well. you will need to remove the cover, if possible, to inspect the power board. the hi limit capacitor is locate in proximity of the power board as well. the in-line fuse is on the board itself, connected to the power cord wires, via solder. if the fuse is in good condition, you will need to replace the high limit capacitor. it has failed.
