Most have a resistor in parallel with the hi voltage capacitor,but always use an insulated screw driver to double check and discharge the cap to be on the safe side,but normally with in 30 minutes

How do i replace blown fuse in sharp microwave mdl 4A59


Remove the outer cover but be aware that doing so exposes you to dangerous, potentially lethal, voltages even with power removed. Find the fuse and replace it with one known to be good. Reinstall the outer cover and test.

I have no power to the microwave. Is there a fuse or circuit breaker that could have blown out? If so, where is it located?


Sun,
There is a fuse inside the microwave. Follow these directions and you should be able to find it. Unplug your microwave and turn it around and remove the screws holding cover on and then remove the cover. Be very careful about touching electrical connections because there can still be some live current stored in the capacitor. 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!

It's completely dead?? Not sure what happened. Power supply is fine.


Microwaves that suddenly loose power could have many causes with the easiest being a blown fuse inside the cabinet of the oven. To check for this unplug the unit and remove the screws that hold the cabinet in place. Be sure to not touch any of the electrical components inside to avoid shock. Visually follow the path the power cord takes as it enters the unit. The fuse ( usually clear glass with metal ends and cylindrical in shape ) should be located not far from where it enters the cabinet. Once located use a fuse puller or other means to carefully remove the fuse to check the element inside. If the fuse is blown take it to a hardware or electronics store for replacement. These fuses are cheap as this has happened to me before. Good luck!

My spacemaker stopped working and no panel lights. It's not the circuit breaker. Any ideas? model JVM140001


Could be the fuse inside the microwave is blown. You will need to unplug the microwave and remove the front control panel. Inisde the microwave housing you will need to trace the electrical wire coming into the unit. Usually you will find the in-line fuse located on the black power wire. You can pull the connectors off the fuse and test it with a continuity tester. If the fuse is blown replace it but make sure you use the same amp rated fuse as you removed. If the fuse blows again then there is an electrical short somewhere in the microwave.
