Ray,
There is an internal fuse.

Unplug your microwave and turn it around and remove the screws holding cover on and then remove the cover. Look for where the power cord goes into the back of the unit and follow the black wire from the cord to where it ends. It should stop an either a circuit board or a fuse holder. Make sure that you replace the fuse with the same amperage fuse as what you take out. You will find the amp rating stamped on one of the silver collars on each end of the fuse. Good luck!

    Hi John. Many thanks for your reply which was very helpful. I found the fuse and replaced like for like but on testing it blew straight away. There is obviously a fault somewhere!! Any suggestions as to my next move? Regards Ray Newman

    With it blowing right away, I would guess that you probably have a short in one of the door switches. There are usually 3 or 4 of those switches and it could be either one. If you have a multi-meter you can check them to see which one is bad. Good luck!

Suddenly microwave stopped working


(would really like more info- digital number dead as well?)

(assuming completely dead) Could be a couple of things:
- blown fuses (inside, relatively easy to replace, std size avail at Raioshack) <-- most likely
- cut/loose power cord connection inside.
- (unlikely but worse case scenario) Door was closed crooked- one tong hit one door switch before the other- causing a short circuit internally that "self destructs" the microwave to prevent it ever operating with an open (or even crookedly ajar) door, irradiating any users. Typically it just blows the fuses, but if fuses blow immediately upon replacing and turning power on, then possibly one of the switches fused or melted internally, and needs to be replaced.

see the informaton with carefully and use the common sense:
God bless you
When the microwave sounds okay, but there's no heat, one of the internal door switches, the high voltage circuitry, or the circuit board may have a problem.

Ours magic chef 900W MCD990ARB completely stopped. We have it in our camper and everything on that end is fine. Checked the micro in a different outlet, still no go. Any suggestions?


Well if you are lucky it is an internal fuse. Open it up and look somewhere near where the cord comes into the unit. If it is not the fuse then I suggest you replace the whole thing.
I recently was attempting to repair one. The part cost $93, a new microwave costs that or less.

there are several internal fuses protecting different circuits, as long as you get a direct replacement you will be ok

Microwave stopped


It's probably the thermostat / thermal cutout (TCO) mounted on the magnetron or the cavity.

Be sure the end caps of the fuse are not loose. That can fool you.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

Does the inside light come on when the door is opened?

If not, then I'd say the internal fuse or thermal cutout / thermostat has failed.

A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout (TCO) / thermal fuse on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the magnetron thermostat to open.

Then when it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

When checking thermostats, if it has a hood fan thermostat, that should read open, as opposed to the others, which should read closed.

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

If it goes dead or blows the breaker when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

If it's intermittent or random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or a loose fuse holder, or even an intermittent fuse.

You should do a continuity test on the fuse while it's in the holder (with the microwave unplugged, of course) then turn the fuse by hand or take it out and put it back in, then test it again.

If you remove the fuse, then press the meter leads against the ends, it can allow internal contact to be made and make a bad fuse appear to be good.

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch mount.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.
