Try another outlet. It maybe over loaded on the microwave outlet. if so you may need a outlet with not so many things on it. And if you lighten the load and it keeps tripping breakers, it may be in the microwave itself. Try another outlet first. Good-Day!

When I press the button to open myMicrowave it starts to run. It did this for I week. Today I did the same thing push the bottom to open the door it open but nothing happen meaning no light on or nothing....

There are several switches (usually 3) located and attached to the door latch area of the microwave. One is a safety interlock that keeps the Micro from running with the door open. At first one of the switches were sticking slightly giving you the attempted run. Then enough stuck to cause the safety to sense it. The safety usually will blow the internal fuse or house breaker. If you are going to get it fixed, best to replace all the door switches and then the fuse also. If by chance it still blows the fuse again you have other problems. At this point I think its just the door switches and fuse.

What to do when your microwave oven wont turn on after a electric storm.

When there is an electrical storm and your microwave oven is affected, and wont turn on. First you should un screw all the screws the two on the bottom right, then the two on the back of the microwave case and then the two others on the left bottom. Then you need to lift up the cover case upwards and then towards the back until the case is completly off. Then you must blow off the dust with a compreser and make sure thatall conections in side are fit tight, then look for the fuse. Some fuses are located on the right uper side of the microwave in a black little box with two cables and two screws, or it can also be located on the bottom of the microwave or the back panel. First unscrew the the containing unit for the fuse then pull the two cables from the conection and set them apart from each other if needed label them with a and b then with a small flat screw driver push the tabs on the containing case of fuse box and pull apart. Then a small shaft and spring will come out make sure to set them in the order they came out first the shaft then the spring. Then the fuse is at the bottom of the box in side, turn it up side down and the fuse will fall out. Then change the fuse "20" amp fuses needed in most microwaves but check the containg unit and see proper fuse amp. then installing method is reverse of taking apart. Remeber to make sure that all conections are not loose and falling. when done your microwave oven will work again.

Emerson mw9113ss wont start after blowing a breaker

Yes most microwaves comes with internal fuse for protection. If you are handy enough you can take the top cover off, identify and find replacement.

I have a kitchen aid microwave and have had it repaired at a autherized sevice center and it had a blown fuse. Now I have another fuse that has blown. It does it when the door opens and then blows leaving...

When the fuse blows in the microwave oven, it is often caused by a bad door switch. Sometimes food build up will clog it, or becomes defective, the only way to fix it is have it replaced.

Microwave doesn't heat

it may be just a fuse in the mains plug they do blow with old age,,,and there is a mains fuse inside the unit, plus others,, but there not normal type fuses so you wont have them, if its not the plug fuse blown then why has the fuse blown??? my gess is the microwave is faulty and this fault caused the fuse to blow,, first how old is this microwave???? and second
dont you try "having a go at fixing it" you could end up killing yourself,, even if the mains plug is out the wall,,,inside your microwave is a very big capacitor that holds lots of volts just like police stun gun's do
however this capacitor wont just stun you,,it will kill you,,so be warned if you tuch the wrong part and if you live to tell the tale,,all be it in grate pain from a hospital bed,, you may then ask yourself was it all worth it for a cheap fix??? so please play it safe
call in the repair guy or better still go out and buy a new unit and live to show it off to your friends,,
and im not trying to scare you,, im tell you as it is
warts and all,,, microwaves can bite you realy hard

As i turn on microwave it blows the fuse. what could be the reason.

try using it at a different location in the house(different circuit) if it also blows that fuse, there must be a short in the unit. do not use. if it works means line in the kitchen is overload, and you need a higher fuse rating or breaker.

GE SpacemakerXL Microwave blowing fuse

If its blowing fuses more than likely there is a short somewhere. Make sure you are putting the required size fuse in. Also never put in a higher than recommended amp fuse you could catch the house on fire.Unhook the fan motor and see if the microwave will run. Anything can be fixed but the cost of doing so may be more trying to fix, but really it could be cheaper to buy a new one instead of trying to fix that one. IMO

Emerson MW8119SB microwave wont stop running with door closed

It should have a one-year warranty on parts and labor.

I'd call Emerson at 1-800-695-0098 to find your nearest authorized service center to have it fixed free.

It's probably a bad door switch or door switch mount.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Inside the microwave is a fuse. If you can, try plugging the microwave into a different outlet (use an extension cord). If it does not power on, you have likely blow the fuse. If you are technical, you may look into replacing the fuse yourself (you will have to remove some parts of the microwave exterior to get to the fuse). Otherwise, if no longer in warranty, you will need to have a shop or handyman replace fuse.

Fuses keep blowing out

In case it's still helpful, I'll inject a little sanity into the replies.

If the fuse blows as soon as you hit Start, it's probably a shorted high-voltage capacitor. That's usually economical to repair.

If the fuse blows a few seconds after you hit Start, it's probably a shorting high-voltage transformer. That's usually not economical to repair.

It's not radiation (non-ionizing RF by the way) that's the hazard, it's the voltages.
