Fuse location

Not all microwaves have fuses, and those that do often have the fuses inside where it takes a technician to replace them. Most normally, a microwave will need replacement if it stops working.
God bless your efforts.

My ge microwave just stopped working

Do you have power to the outlet? If so and you are mechanically inclined, you can unplug the microwave, remove the cover and there should be a fuse located on or near the circuit board close to where the power cord comes in. Test that fuse using a digital multi meter. That is usually where the malfunction takes place. If it is good then the main board has probably failed and may be cheaper to just replace the microwave.

Digital screen broken

This is unfortuneate, if the microwave can be salvaged it must be moved to a location where it is away from moisture, electronic hardware will not fair well under these conditions.

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.

SharpR-202 EL (W)

I did a lot of searching for this model and got some confusing results. You might want to look at the model R202M owner's manual online at: If you have an American model R-202EL or R-202EW, then you can buy an owner's manual from Tritronics at and it is part # TINSEA919WRRZ . If this does not help, there are a couple of other options: 1. If you could post which country you are in or which country you bought this in, that might help. 2. Also, if you have a digital camera, you could take a photo of the control panel and post it here, that might help us help you. All in all, if your microwave seems to be dead, it may have a blown fuse inside. The light should come on when you open the door. Please let us know how it goes.
