Question about Microwave Ovens
If everything has gone dark, then more than likely it is a fuse. If you open the door and the cavity light comes on, the fuse is okay and you have a different problem. Assuming that everything has gone dark and that you are talking about a counter top microwave, you can follow these directions to find where your fuse is located.
Unplug your microwave and turn it around and remove the screws holding cover on and then remove the cover. Be very careful about touching electrical connections because there can still be some live current stored in the capacitor. 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!
