SOURCE: RCA Microwave stopped working

it probably just died they do that sometimes. you could take it back to the store you bought it, contact RCA or just throw it out and replace it with another.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Microwave Model MH3184XP will not power up after power failure

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again. Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.

If not, then you may have a problem is on the control panel, which we repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

SOURCE: Microwave oven blowing 20 amp ceramic fuse

Chances are if the varistor fails, it fails drastically causing a short circuit across the supply. It will sit across the supply (it will look like a thick ceramic capacitor) and you can check for continuity after isolating that at one end. If it shows low resistance (it should show almost open circuit with a Digital meter), replace it.

It need not be the culprit. If you are familiar working with High voltage circuits ( they are lethal inside a microwave ovens as the current capability is high here), you can discharge the doubler capacitor and isolate the high voltage diode to check for shorts in the HT area.

Used the microwave last night. Later I noticed no light display for the clock. Come to find out microwave lost all power. Model number smh9207st


If there are no fuses or circuit breakers, the unit could be down and out. Check you power box for any tripped breakers.

I used my sharp R-1821 convection microwave that night it did not work. outlet is lit up but display does not come on. Why?


More than likely it will be one of the three door switches. Also check the internal fuse in the unit. The fuse if blown is just a symptom, not the problem. It doesn't always blow out but the right combination of switches bad will take it out.

Samsung SMH1816S suddenly stopped working from fully functional state. A click sound was heard when it went dead. After that no sign of life even with power on. Checked ceramic fuses on noise filter to be...


Repairman just diagnosed mine as a bad display board, it quit working while nobody was even home, and cost $269 with a $70 service fee. The microwave is less than 2 years old and only cost @$400 new. I was lied to by the salesman when I made the purchase (imagine that, a salesman lied to a customer) he told me these were very good and reliable microwaves and that I should get years of service out of it, what a crock... I will never buy another Samsung appliance again, they have many many bad reviews and are made with inferior parts. I will stick with Kenmore kitchen products from now on!!!

KitchenAid KCMS1555RSS - display completely blank and does not function. Is it worth fixing?


i would try and see if the fuse is blown in unit ... normally behind control panel there is a in line 20 amp fuse that may have blown.... if the unit makes noises when you touch the buttons but no display then you have a bad control board assembly

You'll have to remove the cabinet cover to access the fuse. It is in line with the power cord. 20 Amp, slow blow.

One of the screws on the back of the cover may be a security TORX (the kind with a pin in the center of the head). Usually, if you tap on it with a hammer, you can remove it with a pair ov Vise-Grip pliers.

LG Microvave just stopped all at once as if the power went out. Nothing will respond. I checked the outlet is fine.


you may have blown a fuse if there is no power display...the fuse unfortunately is located in control panel... it usually is either a 15 amp or 20 amp fuse... do not put a larger one in or a smaller. to test the fuse if you cant visible see it is bad you will need to ohm out and should get continuity ...if the fuse is good and you have no display most likely the pcb or board is bad.... good luck
