Microwaves use a special ceramic fuse that has probably been popped by the outage. You have to take the cover off and it looks just like the regular cylindrical glass fuse except this one is white instead of clear. I think radio shack has them. Hopefully the fuse stopped the power surge before it got the front panel controls.

Samsung Microwave Oven SMH7159 No Power

The power outage may have been accompanied with a power surge. That can happen with lightning strikes, or if a large inductor (electric motor or equivalent) happened to be on the same power line at the time of the outage. There's a good chance a surge took out the control panel.

No power dead

power outages cause power surges and will damage electronic control boards. I suggest replacing the Control board and checking the interlocking door switches. Whilst inside the microwave check the magnetron for discoloration around the magnetron horn or gun as it were. If it don't look clean and new, otherwise burnt it's bad !

We recently had a power outage & my Maytag Microwave model #CME90108BAE is the only appliance that will not turn on. Is there a fuse with this model?

the fuse is usually mounted inside the unit on the same side as the control panel near the back end where the power cord is.......the cover must be removed to get access to it.

All 88888's on display after power outage can't program anything,

I bet you did not have a surge suppressor on it. Just checking.
Your PC board is damaged.

Next time you need a surge suppression.

I have one for $39.00 for this unit.

Try unplugging the unit for 30 seconds then plug it back in. The power outage may have been erratic and the MW did not reset properly.

Microwave has no power

Is the outlet ok? Can you plug somethng else into the outlet to see if the fuse or breaker controlling the outlet is ok? If there is power at the outlet, unplug the unit and remove the outside cover.
Look for a blown fuse on the motherboard. Replace it with the EXACT value of the original fuse. You can purchase a new fuse at Radio Shack or hardware store or auto parts store. Try powering up the unit again and see if it works now or whether the fuse blows again. If it blows again, the power supply may have been damaged. Was this a power outage or surge? Was anything else in your home affected?

Timer Disply Fuzzy

In my professional opinion, power outages can kick a failing or weak unit over the edge, so to speak, but the primary causes of these display failures are the design and manufacturing techniques. We regularly remedy and repair these very units nationwide for $32.50, and our proprietary fixes make them better than new in my opinion, with the aim of not only fixing the problem, but preventing them from recurring. When we repair them, we have folks send us the outer door panel with built-in keypad & display assembly, the power board, and the connecting cable. Thay way we can power and test the unit as an assembly. It's better to separate the door panels instead of removing the door. I have attached a drawing to show how. If you remove the door instead of just taking off the outer panel, the microwave will have to be tested for microwave leakage, which can occur if you haven't reassembled the door with all the hardware in the exact same position as it was. So rest assured this can be economically fixed.

Reset Microwave after a Power Outage

If its part of the house your renting, call the landlord as its most likly a control panel went bad, and in this unit, thats probably going to exceed the cost of the microwave oven. If its a rental oven, take it back.
