Smeg microwave shorting


If it's the circuit breaker in your house or apartment that's blowing, then either you are overloading the circuit, or you have a bad breaker. Check to see what other devices might be plugged into that circuit, and move as many of them as possible to a different circuit.

When I turn on microwave oven fuse is burn out right a way. Thank you


Fuses burn for a reason: because the circuit is being overloaded. There could be several causes, first determine what else goes off when the fuse blows. All of the things that go off when the fuse is removed/blown/burnt are on the same circuit. A microwave is a heavy load, somewhere between 750 watts and 2000 watts, depending on the microwave. Remove other heavy loads (items which use lots of power) from the circuit. A 15 amp 120 volt circuit in a residence is good for 1800 watts (or 1440 watts continuously). If you had a 1500 watt microwave and four 100 watt light bulbs on the same circuit, you would be overloading the circuit. With a microwave, it is best to have it on its own circuit with nothing else (if possible). The fuse may also blow or burn in this situation if there is a problem with the microwave.

Microwave blows fuse when turn on


If it is blowing an internal fuse it could be a lot of things.

-short in the motor
-short in one of the other components
- gunk/dust could be causing a short

If it is your house circuit breaker/fuse then either the microwave draws too much current/amps for the circuit and you should try another circuit or you already have too many things/appliances plugged into the same circuit (not necessarily the same outlet) and need to unplug one or more of them so that the 'fuse' doesn't blow.

I cant turn the microwave oven on without the fuse cutting out


If you got the interior of the unit wet you may just wait a couple of days for it to dry out and it will be ok again. You may also plug your microwave in to another outlet, one that still works when the fuse that blows is unscrewed.

Finally you have a 1000 watt microwave which translates to using 10 amps of power. If you have a 15 amp circuit, looking at the number on the fuse, and you have other things plugged into that circuit like a toaster, toaster oven, coffee pot, hair blow dryer, etc, you may simply have to unplug something else to provide your microwave with the power it needs. good luck.

Panasonic NNA554W blows 10a fuse when microwave comes on


Possibly the interlock monitor switch is bad or out of adjustment. This switch is designed to create a short circuit across the power line (and then blow the fuse) if you attempt to defeat the door interlock and operate the oven with the door open. A shorted capacitor or diode could also cause the fuse to blow. Because of lethal voltages inside and the possibility of microwave leakage if repairs aren't done correctly, you are best off leaving microwave service to professionals.

How can I get the power to come on my Sharp microwave?


The problem may be an electrical one. Microwave ovens require a lot of power. Often, they use most of the power available to the circuit they are plugged in to. If there is not enough power in the circuit to feed the microwave and whatever else is plugged into that same circuit the fuse will blow or the circuit breaker will kick off.

Go to your electcical box, and check the breakers or the fuses. If one of the breakers has kicked, reset it by pushing it all the way off and then back on. If the fuse is blown, unscrew it and screw in a new one of the same amperage.

good luck. please rate my answer. thanks

Fuse keeps blowing.


couple questions -
what else is on the circuit,
and what current does the oven need

there are whirlpool over-range models with
1200watts of microwave,
1500watts of convection power, a
60watt bulb and a
375watt fan

over 15amps -20amp circuit needed

if you inadvertantly replaced a higher current fuse with a 15amp fuse, it will blow every time.
the install guide http://www.whirlpool.com/assets/pdfs/product/ZINSTALL/8206589.pdf reccommends 20amp
not a solution, something to check,

The built-in microwave went dead as I attempted to screw in a new light. It arc'ed, then there was zero power to the unit. Is there an in-line fuse or circuit-breakers?


was cooking on the stove below the microwave and had the fan on. the nicrowave went out all together and will not come back on. it did not blow a fuse in the breaker box. is there a reset button or something to turn back on

Microwave won't come on


I am a recently retired appliance engineer of 20 years, i am reluctant to help with microwaves because of the dangers, the store electric even when unplugged, but it sound just like an internal fuse, these are special quick blow types, can be bought from most electronic high store shops, and replacements must be exact match, if a replacement blows there is another fault and don't recommend self repair work with safety and remove the plug first etc oh the fuse is just inside following the mains wire in, and normally on a small circuit board if i have helped please rate me
