SOURCE: CFMV145--thermal Cutout Question

On this model, you can find the wiring diagram and exploded views at this site http://www3.sears.com (the 3 is correct)

In fact, the diagram you need most is here:
http://www3.sears.com/Paul/Leadimage.asp?productTypeID=0123245&brandID=1428&modelDesc=FRIGIDAIRE/MICROWAVE&modelNumber=CFMV145BC1&documentID=R0212007&documentTypeID=PLDM&documentClassCode=PV&titleType=WIRING%20SCHEMATIC&titleID=00006&

The hood TCO (normally open) has grey and red wires on it going to pins 7 & 5 of connector CO 02 on the circuit board.

The other TCOs should read normally closed.

SOURCE: Removing Old Built-In Microwave

You did not note your Make and Model. As there are many different types, all I can give you are basic directions.
First make sure the Power Cord is UN-PLUGGED from the wall.

1. Remove the Top Vent Grille Cover. There are screws holding this on, either Three you can see (one on each side and one in the center), or Open the Door and look for screws at the top of the Frame that go Up Into the grille.
2. Look in cabinet above unit for screws that hold unit up. Usually two (one on each side, front), can be more. Remove.
3. Look where Top Vent Grille Cover was removed. There should be a Long Screw or Screw-Type Lock at each( top) corner. These hold the unit tight on the Wall-Mount Plate. Remove. You should have HELP at this point as you will slide the unit forward until it comes clear of the Support Arms.
GOOD LUCK!!

1. Unplug the microwave or turn off its breaker.

2. Open the door, then detach the control panel as shown in the video at
http://www.microwavedisplay.com and swing it down, but without disconnecting the wires.

If you have any trouble getting the grille off once the screws are removed, slide the hood vent grille to the left about 1/4", then then pull it forward.

On some models there are L-shaped clips that fit into a slot to hold bottom of the vent.

How do you get to the fuse when the unit is fixed under the cabinet.


If your oven is dead (no signs of life at all) it may be a blown fuse or one of the thermal cutouts / thermostats may be defective.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Accessing the thermal cutouts for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

We have a r-1406 power to outlet nothing at microwave is ther a fuse or reset in machine


No reset, and if it's totally dead, it may be the fuse, the magnetron's temperature fuse, or the cavity thermal cutout.

We have the service manual and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

The fuse should be accessible just behind the grill.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range grille and/or control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Accessing the oven cavity thermal cutout will require you to remove the oven from the wall, then remove the outer cover.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

The installation instructions are included in your owner's manual.

There is still power but it will not turn on


It may be a bad fuse or a bad magnetron thermal cutout or oven cavity thermal cutout.

There should 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.

Microwave will not power up and I know the power is good to the appliance


In addition to an internal fuse, most microwaves have a thermal cutout / thermal fuse or thermostat on or near the magnetron, and quite often on the top of the cavity, too.

Many brands also have a technical sheet inside the oven, either behind the control panel, hidden behind the grille, or inside the outer cover.

To allow us to help you effectively (at no charge), please post a NEW problem to FixYa, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit, and your symptoms, "dead".

How do i change the heating fuse for a ge spacemaker microwave


unplug first, take three screws out of top vent cover and there may even be some on the top cabinet holding vent cover on front, then you might see fuse holder just behind vent cover, if not remove screw(s) holding touch pad on, then slide touch panel up and out. it will rest on hinge, then you should see fuse holder inside behind touch panel. BE SURE TO UNPLUG FIRST AS ELECTRICITY CAL KILL YOU.

I have a samsung smh7187 microwave over the range and in the middle of cooking it just shut off. The vent at the top of the unit is still open. The outlet is fine, other things work fine in it-I unpugged...


I would suspect the oven cavity's thermal cutout / thermostat, the magnetron's thermal cutout / thermostat, and/or the fuse.

We have the service manual and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

Note that your model number's suffix may be different than this manual covers exactly.

No display, no light, no fan, microwave dead!


There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

It may be the fuse, which is located in the upper area behind the control panel.


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.

(Don't be confused by the base or hood thermostat, which is on the floor of the chassis. It will read normally open).

The fuse and magnetron thermostat can be checked with out taking the oven down from the wall, but if you need to check the oven thermostat, you will need to pull it from the wall.

To help with that, you can download Whirlpool owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

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

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.

It may be the fuse, which is usually located behind the grille or on the floor of the oven behind the control panel or between the door switches.

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.

At our site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

There may also be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

Fire help...need a new part or new microwave?


There is a flame sensor whose job it is to cut power if there is a fire. It has probably blown.

It may be called a thermostat, thermal cutout, or thermal fuse. It will look something like the drawings below. (The service info I have on this model is spotty).

But generally, there is one on the floor of the chassis behind the control panel. It should read open on a continuity test.

There will normally be two others, and they will read closed (also called shorted or zero ohms). One is on or near the magnetron and the other is along the top of the cooking cavity.

If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

NOTE: There may 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.
