Daewoo KOR-1N0A microwave oven not heating

This is most likely the fuse in the high voltage magnetron circuit (that is the microwave generator). This fuse is usually inside an inline plastic case that can be opened for replacement. Don't attempt this unless you have some experience and can work from just this clue. Otherwise take it to a professional repair shop.
I would guess it is only worth repairing if you think this may have been caused by overloading the oven (i.e. putting something metallic in the oven). If not then the fuse may have blown due to another problem and you would be better off to buy a new microwave oven.

My Kenmore Microwave 721.80513 stopped working. It is only 3 years old. Power is working. We think it is a Fuse. We cannot find where the fuse is. Anyone know?

It could be a ceramic fuse that is usually located inside the microwave, you need to remove the cabinet. You will see it place there on top (usually) or it could be under a cover there. Be sure to replace this with a like fuse, nothing too small or too large. You should also be sure to use a ceramic fuse, as a glass fuse will burn out much quicker and you'll be in the same spot.
Hope this helps,

My Maytag MMV1153BAW Microwave that is only a couple of years old stop working. I changed the fuse (which was blown). It then came on for a fraction of a second and stopped working again. I tried...

There are three micro switches inside the latch assembly. One of these absolutely prevents the possibility of the Magnetron being energized while the door is open. The way it works is if the door is open and the Magnetron is energized, it will act as a direct short circuit and that will blow the fuse. It works very well, unfortunately, that tremendous surge of current ruins the microswitch. Replace the switch. You will find this same information on the instruction sheet inside the cabinet.

Microwave has stopped working after being run empty for a short time. Is there a fuse that needs to be replaced or is the microwave dead?

There is a fuse inside the oven. The rating of the fuse may be 8amps. It is not suggested to run the oven without load inside.

Ran microwave empty

I bet it just burned out a fuse. They do burn out and it may have been just when you were running it. Think about it. A fuse doesent go bad waiting to be used. Its all way while they are running or starting up. If you need help changeing it ,let me know. If you can put it on the kitchen table , then you can replace. I will be happy to walk you through the repair. DFD
