Microwave fuses are normally located either on a filter board near where the power cord comes in, behind the control panel between the door switches, or behind the control panel in a hodler, sometimes on the floor of the chassis.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

At our site, we have a video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can find an authorized Panasonic servicer here.

You can order Panasonic parts from Tritronics, but if you don't find what you're looking for there, try here.

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

SOURCE: Microwave stopped working while cooking. Is there a fuse?

If the display is not working, there is a fuse inside the cabinet. You will need to take the unit down from the wall and open it up.

Chances are, either the controller board has failed, or something having to do with the magnetron, transformer, diode or capacitor (the microwave circuit.). More likely it's the controller, as when the microwave circuit fails, the display usually continues to display.

SOURCE: My microwave stopped working. PLEASE HELP.

In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. or a fault that is shutting the system down for safety reasons You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man. Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

Fuse location

Good Afternoon Friend, that's a great question!

Depending on the model of your Frigidaire microwave, the fuses are typically on located behind the control console, on the magnetron or on the oven capacity. However, if your microwave does not heat, you may possibly have a faulty control panel, magnetron, or experiencing an issue with the power supply. Please confirm that your microwave is plug into its own outlet and that you are not using a GFI outlet. Hope this helps! - Z

Hello there:
If your microwave oven doesn't seem to work at all, check these: Fuses Door switch Fuses Usually, when your microwave oven doesn't work it all, the internal fuse (thermal fuse) is blown. This fuse protects both you and the oven. When it blows, you need to have a qualified appliance repair technician replace it. Door switch If the fuse isn't the problem, check the door hooks and the door-release button. When these are broken, the door switch doesn't activate, so the oven can't work.

Is it a membrane type touchpad?

These are usually held in place with an adhesive. You can pull the old one off and stick the new one on. The complication usually involves the connection between the touchpad and the body of the microwave. This connection may or may not be easily accessible.

GE Microwave stops running

Mostly with GE I find this to be bad connections at the fuse holder or a bad fuse due to a bad fuse holder. It will break connection and reset the unit when the connection gets hot and expands and then opens and stops power from getting to the unit.

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.
