Where is the thermistor

Many Microwaves do NOT use a thermistor, as such, they do however have thermostat type electronics, what you need to do is get a service manual, this will have a schematic diagram.
Above find a service manual for a generic service manual.

NTC cover message after replacing fuse in my whirlpool microwave MH1170xsb

The "negative temperature coeffecient" (NTC) thermistor was left unplugged after reassembly or it is defective.

It is the hood thermistor, and should be plugged into connector P4 on the circuit board.

I think it should be at the bottom of the board, on a little tongue-like protrusion, as shown in the attached photo.

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.

If you don't find yours, or if you want to look at it without disassembling the oven, you can download it here (just enter your model number).

You can also find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

I have power to the plug, but nothing to the unit when it is plug

First unplug the unit.
This can be caused by one of two possible conditions.
You may have blown a fuse inside the unit or the thermistor may have blown. You can check them with a simple ohm meter. You will have to take the covers off to access the parts. The thermistor is located at the air outlet. This thermal resistor (thermistor) is designed to open if heated too hot and shut power to prevent fires. You can see a diagrams at;

It's usually the thermistor.
The parts can be purchase at electronics stores like Radio Shack.

Where is the fuse on a Frigidaire GLMV169D

This problem is almost certainly caused by the thermistor failing. The thermistor is located at the
air outlet of the unit. This is a thermal resistor that cuts off the electricity to the unit if it overheats. Sometimes it can fail from age.
Go to;

and enter your unit number. You can even get diagrams in the left-hand corner screen.
Replace with same value thermistor.
Also see if a mini manual in hidden behind the control panel.
