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.

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.

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

The microwave won't turn on. it is off completely. Just happened last night. Have checked the electric fuses, poked the buttons, but noty on. Stove is ok.


You have to open it up and see if you can find the power fuse, usually a BUSS 15amp Slo Blo that protects the Microwave Tube from drawing too much current and causing a fire. These fuses degrade over time or some get through that are not quite 15 amps and blow.

Microwave stopped working, no power. Checked


There are two thermal fuses.

One is located on the magnetron and another one is located on top of the left side of the cavity under the air duct. The microwave has to be removed from the cabinet to access the second one.




The problem turned out to be a 20 amp fuse that I was able to replace and the unit is working fine. Sometimes a blind squirrel finds nuts.

You most likely had a power surge and blew a fuse. First unplug the unit,then remove the top grill. There will either be one screw on top of the control pad or 2 on the left side. open the control panel and look for a fuse that has a ceramic center and replace it with a 20 amp one. You can find these at the hardware store
