On most GE/Hotpoint models, the control panel assembly will either tip down, or pivot sideways for access to the components behind it. Screws holding the top air deflector might have to be removed in order to gain access to the control panel mounting screws. I recently junked-out a similar model. The main fuse was near where the power cord enters the cabinet on top. Avoid contact with any of the high voltage components.

How to change fuse in microwave


There will be more than one fuse. One will be on the main printed circuit board near where the supply wires connect, The other will be the HV fuse in the magnetron circuit.

If you do not have the right test instruments then don't try this repair yourself. The magnetron circuit can deliver a lethal shock even when the oven is not plugged in to the wall.

It may be uneconomical to have it repaired, given the cost of new ones, so get a quote before going ahead.

I changed the fuse on a Frigidare #FMT118EPB Microwave and it blew again. I checked the micro switches with a meter and they seem to work. What else could be causing the fuse to blow? Thanks.


If you put in the correct size of fuse then what it needs is to go to a qualified service tech. What would be next requires removing the covers and if you do not know what you are doing you will fry yourself.

How to change a fuse in frigidaire microwave?


Good Morning Friend,

I understand you want to know how to change a fuse in your Frigidaire microwave. Typically, this is not a do it yourself repair, as there are no step by step instruction manuals. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They have been trained on your appliance and should be able to change out the fuse with ease. Hope this is helpful.

Short Circuit in changing light bulb in KHMS147SS has caused the unit to power completely down. Is there a fuse?


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
First check is the main fuse of the unit. On countertop units, you will need to take the shell off. The fuse will be close to where the cord comes through into the unit. OTR units, this main fuse is usually behind the control panel or possibly behind the vent. Usually the fuse is obvious if blown, otherwise test with an OHM meter, if open, replace fuse.
Some brands will also have a thermal cut-off fuse in the incoming voltage line to the control board. Older Maytags and Samsungs have this fuse in it. This thermostat looking fuse is usually above the oven cavity somewhere under the outside shell. Sometimes you can get to it through the vent of OTR models. Test with an OHM meter, replace if open.

Is it possible to blow a fuse on a micro oven? And where would I change it?


There is a fuse found behind the upper grill, it is likely a 20amp fuse.
If the fuse has blown, it is likely that the door safety switches need to be replaced.
Change the fuse (unplug the micro first) and continue using. If the fuse blows again, have it serviced by a qualified service person.

The house fuse that runs the circut the microwave is on blew when replaced the microwave did not come back on,is there a reset button or fuse on it.


There is a fuse inside the microwave oven but i don't recommend opening the oven and changing it. There are high voltages inside even when the oven is disconnected from the mains.
But if you are careful enough, you can change it. If it has a electronic control (With a digital display) maybe there is another fuse on the controller board, near the front panel.
Before even opening the oven, make sure it doesn't work on another power outlet.
And make sure you change it with the same type and rating of fuse!

My microwave will not turn on at all. We had several electronic items go out during a storm. I was wondering if there might be a way to fix it.


The power spike would have taken out the "monitor" fuse inside the microwave. This fuse protects the oven from door switch failure, if the switches fail it will blow this fuse so the oven can't be used. The purpose of this circuit is so that you can't run the microwave with the door open. This fuse is normally a low amp quick blow which is why it is susceptible to power spikes. This fuse can be replace but must be changed like for like, and is advisable to change the door switches as well. Good luck.
