Question about Magic Chef CMV1000B Microwave Oven

1 Answer

The power blew while it was on with the dryer

The power blew while it was on at the same time with the dryer. Was like the fuse had blown but the fuse is fine - is there an internal switch somewhere? Though it's older there's been no sign of problems - worked perfectly.

    Thanks so much! Let me ask....

    you can see the diagram of the microwave here: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partse...

    Looks like the hv capacitor is behind the vents on top of the unit (#8) - does that sound right?

    Also, they've misnumbered the fuse - would you have an idea as to where it would be?

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!

GE Spacemaker microwave makes groaning sound when start button is pressed for a second or two then blows the internal fuse. After replacing the fuse everything seemed to work, lights, exhaust fan, cl


Could be a lot of things but most probably a shorted high voltage diode assembly. If not that then the magaetron or capactors. Remember be careful there are high voltages even when the oven is unpluged. The capactors are usually charged and must be discharged. If you don't know what yor doing then time to get a qualfied tech.

Good luck

No power - blown fuse?


If it was run without the fan a thermal protect device was more than likely taken out. Check for that and replace the fan.

I was boiling an egg in my oven unluckily it blast and light went off.Since then i can not start my oven.No indoor light no power light.


Hi
It sounds like the internal fuse blew.
If possible, check the fuse:
  • First disconnect the power lead from the wall ( Safety first )
  • If blown, replace the fuse with one of the SAME rating.
If it blows again, you know there is a more serious problem, and it should be checked by a qualified person.

Microwave blew up after cooking an egg


Yes the internal fuse will have blown. I would also think the door latch switches and monitor switch will also need re adjustment
