Almost all microwaves have internal fuses. Counter top micros need to remove outer case and fuse should be near where power cord enters the microwave, Fuse looks like old style glass car fuses but is white or gray ceramic. Can't look at it to tell if its bad. Need tester. Over the range (wall Micros) usually have the fuse directly behind the control panel which you will need to drop down away from the body. Same type fuse as stated before. 15 or 20 amp should be stamped on metal edge. Purchase at Radio Shack or a parts store---or some Hardware stores.

Neither the oven's display nor the oven operate why?


Sounds like you have a blown fuse. Sounds also like it is an over the range unit and you definitely would need help if you have to take it down to work on. Depending on the brand and model, the fuse should be behind the touch panel somewhere. If you put in the brand and model with your question, it did not come through, so I cannot be more specific as to how to get into where the fuse might be located.

No power to clock or microwave. Have checked breakers.


The main fuse in the microwave oven has probably blown, caused by a defective door.

Microwave runs for about 2 seconds then shuts off, then comes back on, then on, off, etc. Takes forever to just run 20 seconds, heat works but not efficiently. Clock flickers, too, and runs slow. Took...


Since the clock flickers, I would investigate the receptacle you have it plugged into as it or the circuit may be intermittent. This COULD even be a fire hazard. If the receptacle uses those push in wiring, get rid of it and replace with one using screw terminals.

Pushing the start button trips the breaker. All functions seems to work, fan, clock etc but it just started as soon as you push start it trips the breaker. Control panel/board seems fine no burn marks.

In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. or a fault that is shutting the system down for safety reasons You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man. Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.
Service manual below, troubleshoot with that. http://www.eserviceinfo.com/downloadsm/5734/PANASONIC_NN-K652.html

Sharp Insight Pro microwave drawer KB6024MS not working


The drawer often stops working when it is abruptly stopped while opening and forced closed or vice-versa. To fix, simply do the following:
1) Push the draw all the way closed
2) Push the "Setup" button repeatedly until the "Open/Close ...?" appears.
3) Hold the Start Button until the time reappears in the display.
4) Repeat steps 2 & 3 three more times
5) Unplug the Microwave for 30 minutes.
The drawer is now reset. The drawer will now open electronically (automatically) either by pushing the open button on the panel or by pulling the drawer handle slightly.

I went to use my mirowave & it is completely gone. I pushed every button that I could & nothing happens. What should I do


first check the breaker in the electrical panel. your microwave should be on a circuit with nothing else. Depending on when the house was constructed. If the breaker is tripped turn it off and back on. If the microwave is plugged into a gfic outlet check to see if the receptacle needs reset. There will be a reset button on the receptacle. Their may be a orange light on the receptacle.

Frigidaire Micro made an odd noise and now it does not work!


Probably due to a loose screw or clip connection where the wires connect to the outlet's terminals.

These must be tight, especially for high-current loads like microwave ovens.

Loose connections can lead to serious or dangerous overheating.

I would say the reason the microwave made it blow was that the microwave's outlet is probably fed by (daisy-chained with) the outlet that blew.

If so, this is not really a good idea.

A high-current load (microwave, freezer, fridge, etc.) should ideally be on its own breaker / fuse with no other items on the same power line.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
