Question about Kenmore 63652 Microwave Oven
You can remove the grill on top; there should be screws on the top of the microwave and/or within the grill itself. Then remove the control panel, should be one screw on the top of the panel, then lift up on the panel and tilt it out. The fuses should be visible from there. If the fuse is the problem it's easy to change, just remember to unplug the unit first before working on it. And I would suggest getting a single outlet surge protector for the unit; microwaves are very sensitive to power spikes. Please contact me if you need any more help.

SOURCE: unit not powering up
There is a fuse located behind the control panel. If that is good, or replacing it does not fix it, you may have a problem with the control panel, which we repair nationwide for $39.95. We have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

There is an internal fuse, plus one or two thermostats or thermal cutouts.
You can probably find an exploded view by entering your FULL model number here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com
There may also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.
If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout (TCO) / thermal fuse on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.
If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the magnetron thermostat to open.
Then when it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.
When checking thermostats, if it has a hood fan thermostat, that should read open, as opposed to the others, which should read closed.

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!

Dead appliance, power on wall outlet.
SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!
this only if you are competent.
your appliance has absolutely no functions at all, remove it from the
mains supply, remove the case and see where the mains lead goes in to
the appliance and follow the cable until you find the main fuse.
ONLY USE THE SAME TYPE AND RATING OF FUSE TO REPLACE IT.
The usual cause of this fuse failure is the door switches are contaminated or sticking. Check the door switches before putting power back on to the appliance.
Hope this helps.
