Well, assuming your connections are good on the board, and you;re getting about 3VAC on the filament leads (outermost two pins), I'd say you would need a new board assembly.

(The VFD tube is not available separately).

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

Is it safe to use an epoxy grout in my Amana RSW458P microwave oven? About an inch of the grout in the bottom back corner, where the bottom meets the side wall, has peeled away.


this must be an oldie cus im not in the knowlege of any microwaves that are sealed with grout , most all today are heat sealed using an ultrasonic weld that i know of
but i caution you using non food grade materials inside any oven, heat generated by cooking may leak out chemicals in sealers and "grout" that are not designed for food and poision the food inside id contact Amana directly and inquire about them selling you a tube of this sealer ?

Can I still use the microwave if paint is peeling in one corner?


Yes, but it really should be fixed to prevent rust and arcing.
The area will first have to be sanded smooth and cleaned and dried thoroughly.

If the cavity metal of the oven is cracked or split, you can use a small amount of steel-based epoxy such as JB-WELD to patch the crack or hole.
Once that dries thoroughly, you can sand it very smooth.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

How to change fuse for lg lrm1250W


Hello

Get beneath the LG microwave, and grasp it on the bottom at either end. Lift the microwave up slightly, and pull it out from the wall to remove it from the mounting plate.


Turn the microwave onto its face on a soft rug or blanket. Remove the screws from the back panel of the microwave, and slide the panel upward to take it off the unit.


Look for the three fuses in the LG microwave -- one at the lower-right corner, one in the upper-right corner and one in the top center. Check each of the fuses to see if any of them look dark in color; this indicates a burned-out fuse.


Remove the burned-out fuse by gripping it firmly and pulling it away from the wall of the microwave. Once the fuse is removed, press the new fuse into the same position in the microwave until it clicks into place.


Slide the back panel onto the microwave, and replace the screws. Lift the microwave into the space beneath the cabinet from which it was removed, holding it slightly higher than the mounting plate, and lower the microwave until it catches on the mounting plate.
