Question about Microwave Ovens
Well if it has been Zapped then usually it is only? the Power supply side of things, the Bridge Rectifier, Controller etc, especially if it wasn't actually "heating" at the time. But also it may have fried the Computer Chip, in the "Brain" of the microwave. These days though, it often costs more to repair than replace, and anyway I always say, if you fix it you still have a fixed thing that may have further problems, as things go. If it's new at least you can take it back.

Tips for a great answer:
Unplug your microwave and turn it around and remove the screws holding cover on and then remove the cover. Look for where the power cord goes into the back of the unit and follow the black wire from the cord to where it ends. It should stop an either a circuit board or a fuse holder. Make sure that you replace the fuse with the same amperage fuse as what you take out. You will find the amp rating stamped on one of the silver collars on each end of the fuse. Good luck!
