I have an over the range DAEWOO MT1510W Microwave i think the fuse blowed my manual doesn't show where it located at

The fuse probably is internal. It may be necessary to remove your OTR microwave to get access inside.

Don't hot food Like to know where fuse is

There are 2 fuses, to access them you have t oremove the outer housig. You do that by removing 4 screws from the bottom and 8 from the back.The outer casing can then be slid to the rear of the unit and lifted up and off.The fuse you probally need would be the MGT Thermal Fuse which is usually located top center. The other fuse is the line fuse located on the right side of the unit.

Where is the fuse located?

If the model number is correct, there is a small input line filter board with a 125V, 20 AMP line fuse inside the microwave. Its usually mounted on a small input line filter board at the point where the power cord enters the back of the unit. You will need to UNPLUG the microwave oven and remove the exterior case to access. The case comes off in various ways depending on manufacture and model. I found this illustration at based on the model number you listed this question under:

The line filter is listed as item 1420. The fuse will be mounted to this board.

You can purchase replacement fuses at any hardware store. 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 Slow Blow fuses are recommended.

If you have any questions, or need assistance troubleshooting, please post back 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.

My Panasonic The Genius microwave just stopped working not getting any power to display. Wondering if it is the fuse and where that would be located.

HI, if this unit is totally dead, this may be a power inverter issue. there is a fuse located on this board inside the unit. you will need to gain access to this board and fuse by removing the outer cover. there should be a few screws on the outside of the microwave to remove.

Check the In-line fuse for its value. if the fuse is good, replace the power unit(inverter board)

My proline st44 microwave just suddenly went dead. I?ve checked and changed all fuses on the microwave and leads. It comes back again and then goes dead again. The inside door mechanism seems to be intact...

ProLine ST44 950 Watts Microwave
Since this machine is only sold in the UK I do not have a picture to point you to.
The problem is probably a blown thermal fuse. This fuse is located inside the machine and is for detecting overheating and fires. Sometimes age will cause it to fail. It's generally located near the air vent outlet.
If you handy with fixing gadgets you can check it.
Unplug the machine and remove the cover.
You can take an ohmmeter and test it. If it shows open you can replace it. It may be soldered in I am not sure. You can get replacements at an appliance parts store or Radio Shack®. There may be conventional fuses inside so you can check them also.

If nothing else is wrong it might be a door switch problem.
Wear on the interlock causing the crowbar microswitch to short the line and blow
the internal line fuse. The interlock, required by law, contains 3
switches - one switch sends a door-open signal to the
microprocessor, one opens the line and the third crowbars (shorts)
the power leads to the magnetron. If the crowbar switch activates
before the line switch opens, the line fuse gets blown. Just toss the crowbar switch.
