Yes you have a fuse inside the microwave you have to remove the cover be very careful the high voltage capacitor could still be charged you will see the fuse where the power lead enters microwave if blown you must first find out why when replacing fuse buy proper microwave fuse or slow blow fuse remember safety first hope this helps

Quit working


1st try plugging it into a different outlet to make sure the problem is not in the outlet. Then if it still has no power, you should open the unit and follow the power cord to the transformer area. Many microwave ovens have a fuse somewhere near the transformer, but some do not. You didn't say what model or brand you have, so I can't say if yours has a fuse or not. Therefore, you just have to check and see. If it has a fuse and it's blown, repalce it. If it doesn't, you could use a volt meter to see if you have voltage going in or coming out of the transformer...CAUTION: If you are sure how to use a volt meter correctly, only check for a blown fuse and leave the rest alone.. wouldn't want you to get electricuted.

No power - not the outlet or a fuse


If the internal fuse in the microwave is good, then it could be a bad wiring connection somewhere in the oven, or a thermal cutout has failed.

Has no power,


see the next steps: God bless your use the common sense, NOT feared.
No Lights or Power, Unit seems Dead First check is the main fuse of the unit. On countertop units, you will need to take the shell off. The fuse will be close to where the cord comes through into the unit. OTR units, this main fuse is usually behind the control panel or possibly behind the vent. Usually the fuse is obvious if blown, otherwise test with an OHM meter, if open, replace fuse.
Some brands will also have a thermal cut-off fuse in the incoming voltage line to the control board. Older Maytags and Samsungs have this fuse in it. This thermostat looking fuse is usually above the oven cavity somewhere under the outside shell. Sometimes you can get to it through the vent of OTR models. Test with an OHM meter, replace if open.

My microwave oven stopped working. No lights, clocks etc. I have checked the outlet and it is fine, power available. Is there a fuse somewhere inside the microwave?


There is a main fuse in the microwave oven, "white body with silver ends" located near the high voltage capacitor. Unplug unit take top off and allow 30 seconds to dis-charge. Keep in mind the door switch becomes defective and often blows the fuse.

Worked yesterday, but this morning is totally dead - power at the outlet is fine. Is there a master fuse somewhere? Aprox 4 years old. Thanks,Pat.


Dead appliance, power on wall outlet.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!

Attempt this only if you are competent.

If your appliance has absolutely no functions at all, remove it from the mains supply, remove the case and see where the mains lead goes in to the appliance and follow the cable until you find the main fuse.
ONLY USE THE SAME TYPE AND RATING OF FUSE TO REPLACE IT.
The usual cause of this fuse failure is the door switches are contaminated or sticking. Check the door switches before putting power back on to the appliance.
Hope this helps.

The microwave oven does not have power to the panel.


HI, this will require the skilled hands of a qualified GE tech. the damaged part here is the Magnetron assembly. this is a very sensitive part that creates radiation and the heating process as well. you will need to replace this device asap if possible.

It could easily be a bad line fuse and/or line filter. To access you will need to unplug the unit and remove the outside case. Inside the unit, where the A/C power cord comes in, there should be a small circuit card (part #237068) located somewhere with a fuse mounted on it. This is your input line filter board with line fuse. Replace the fuse, first and see if this fixes your problem. This is a 20amp appliance fuse that you can purchase at any hardware store. Make sure you place the cover back on the unit BEFORE you plug it in. It is not safe to have this area of the microwave exposed with power applied. High potentials in the 4,000 volt range are present! If the fuse does not correct your problem, the circuit card runs about $26.00. Good luck and hope this fixes your problem.

Bulb and Fan Not Working


The problem is damage to the control circuit board. It wasn't the pliers. This damage happens whenever the lamps are removed or installed without disconnecting the oven from the power line first. We regularly repair these GE / Samsung boards for this problem for customers from across the country for $32.50. We have an important file called "safety.txt" which you can find by a search on Yahoo.com. It's important information to consider before proceeding.
