My Panasonic genius sensor 1250W microwave has stop working, now is their fuses i need to check,or is their a way i can, check the heating element to see if i us out.


Kevin,
There is a fuse in a microwave. One way you can tell for sure if the fuse has blown is that there will be no lights or any activity when you push buttons. The screen will not light up either. If that is your case, then you can be fairly certain that your fuse has blown. I would suggest before working on it that you plug something else into the same outlet and see if it works okay so that you can eliminate that you lost power in your outlet. If all of that is okay, then turn your microwave around so that you are looking at the back and take out the screws that hold the cover on. Remove the cover and look at where the power cord goes into the back of the unit. Find the black wire from the power cord and follow it to either an inline fuse holder, or a fuse block, or a circuit board. Depending on your model, you should have one of these three options. Make sure that you replace your fuse with the same amperage fuse that you take out. Look on the metal rings at each end of the fuse and that will tell you what amp fuse you need. Hope tis helps!

How do i fix a kemore 721.7915 microwave oven


First off...Plug the unit into Another Grounded outlet in your house.This is to check the outlet that is normally used by this oven.Also,plug in Another appliance into its Usual socket...to see if the outlet is okay. We had to "Shut Off" the power to the building one time, then fire it up again.It worked.However,based on your findings-you must get it repaired by a Pro...! Do NOT Attempt To Repair a Microwave Yourself!! A PRO DIED in my sister-in-laws home while repairing her microwave.Don't endanger yourself!

Whirlpool microwave hood no power/panel display lights! Breakers are fine!


You should test the outlet. A hair dryer or toaster would be best to test the outlet "under load".
If that's okay, I would then suspect the microwave's internal fuse.
If that's okay, the next suspect would be a thermostat. One is on the top of the cooking cavity and one is near the magnetron.
There is a video here showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
Then you should be able to find a mini manual / technical sheet hidden behind the controls or grille. The tech sheet is very helpful in locating and testing components.
Accessing some components (especially the oven cavity thermostat) for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall and take off the outer cover.

If so, the installation instructions (here) are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.
You can order any needed parts here.

NO POWER! WALL OUTLET ENERGIZED. 20AMP FUSE GOOD. HELP


Not a solution, just a safety measure. Please keep this unit unplugged until you find a solution for safety's sake. You didn't mention the brand, but some ovens have been starting on their own while the owner is away and causing an explosion and a house fire.

My old GE Spacemaker II microwave (JEM21K001) died. I was using it, heard a little pop, and it lost all power. Is this something simple to fix like replacing a fuse or is it bulk trash at this point?


HELLO.

take on these steps to solve the problem.

Check if there is electric power on wall outlet.

If the microwave plug has fuse,check if it has not burnt.if these are okay there is need to take the last step.

things needed
1.Screwdriver
2.Ohmmeter
3.New fuse

1. Unplug the microwave from the electrical outlet to prevent electrocution. Place the microwave in a well-lit area to be able to locate the fuse.

2. Use a screwdriver to remove the outer cabinet of the microwave, and follow the power cord to the fuse. The fuse is located 2 to 3 inches within the microwave and is attached to the power board.

3. Observe the fuse to determine if it is blown. Blown glass fuses will produce burn marks on nearby surfaces, or the internal fuse wire will be black and melted, while ceramic fuses show no outward appearance of being blown.

4. Determine if a ceramic fuse is blown by testing it with an ohmmeter. If the ohmmeter reads zero ohms, your fuse is not blown. Other readings on the ohmmeter show that your fuse is blown.
5. Replace the blown fuse by popping it out of its holder, and snapping a new fuse in its place. Tighten the fuse clips by squeezing them together with your fingers.

6. Replace the outer cabinet of the microwave, and plug the microwave back into the electrical outlet. Test the microwave to see if it's working properly.

Thanks.

Magic Chef Over the Range, MicroOven, model MCO153UBF


I tried the usual things, then checked the outlet in the cupboard where the unit is plugged in.....It was okay, but then I noticed a separate electrical cable going into the wall at the outlet. I went to the breaker box downstairs, found a breaker marked "Microwave Oven", flicked it off and on and away the microwave oven went....It is now okay. I guess the thermostat had turned everything off when it became too hot....
anyway all okay now....thx Janet

First I would be sure the outlet is okay. You could try plugging a lamp into that outlet and wiggling the plug to be sure it's okay.

Otherwise, it may be a bad internal connection causing a power loss, or it has a problem with the keypad or control board.
