In addition to the blown fuse, more than likly one of the door switches is faulty. Because they are inexpensive I usually replace all three.

No reset button, but there's probably a ceramic type fuse inside. If you replace it and it blows again, then the unit needs serviced.

Safety first! Unplug before taking apart. Put back together before plugging back in (unless you know what you are doing).

There is a short somewhere. When the door is open it shorts the main capacitor to ground so it doesn't operate when the door is open. It blew the main fuse on the microwave. If you decide to fix it, look at the door switches as well. One of them will more than likely be bad.

Will not heat food


HELLO.

The solution to make your microwave oven to be able to heat food is detailed given below.

1 Make sure the door is closed. If the door is not closed tight, the microwave will not function.Sometimes food will get stuck in the door and prevent the latch from working. Use the paper towel to get the food out, then close the door carefully and listen for the latch to click.

2 Check the power sources. First, make sure the microwave is plugged in; the plug may have shifted or slipped partway out of the socket. If it is plugged in and still does not work, voltage test the outlet the microwave is plugged into. If you are not getting a reading, the breaker is probably blown. Reset the breaker for that outlet in your home's circuit breaker box.

3 Reset the microwave breaker. Take the back cover of the microwave off with a screwdriver. Inside you will find a motor. Most microwave motors have a small red reset button on them. Hit that button. Your microwave should work again if the breaker was the issue.

Thanks

Unit was working than just shut down, the display went dead.


hello,

the solutionhas noting to do with reset button or code

what the problem is from the element (heat provider)it is always is silver colour all it means is there is disconnection from it or it is bad.

what you need to do to fix up your oven is to unscrew it and then trace down the wire to the heater (element) but if you did not see any sign of disconnection then you will have to make a change of the element it mean bad .

thank you and thanks for using fixya.

Built-in Sharp Carousel II Microwave Convection Oven died.


There are a couple of safety thermostats in the oven to shut down power if something overheats. One is on the magnetron tube (the microwave source), the other is on the cooking cavity. These sometimes go bad. There's also a power line fuse that may have failed, or become loose in its mounting clips. These can be tested with an ohmmeter; they should all measure very close to zero ohms if they're good.

Another possibility is that the control circuit board in the oven may have failed. I have worked on several Sharp ovens where the power transformer for the board has gone bad for no good reason. If the board goes bad the oven may appear to be dead as well.

Microwave servicing is best left to professionals. If you're thinking of keeping this one, take it to a service shop (or call for home service) and get an estimate. Then decide whether to repair or replace.

Hope this has helped a little. Thanks for using Fixya!

Microwave went dead


Hi

If your microwave oven doesn't seem to work at all, check these: 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.


Please do rate the solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Microwave model jvm1540dmlww went out when door closed


If it goes dead or blows the breaker (or GFI) when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

See:
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/safety.txt
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/disassembly.txt
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/doorsw.txt

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

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

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Please write back if you need further help.

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