Stopped working Began by shutting off mid way through a timed cooking. Now I do not even get a display. Is this a fuse issue; if so where is the fuse located?

Hi,

The problem you are describing is most likely a fuse that has blown. The fuse is in a holder just behind the control panel. It should have a rating on the fuse itself, typically it is a 15 amp ceramic fuse that you should be able to find at Radio Shack. But be sure to check the fuse for the right rating.

Auto Cook not working


If autocook is not working and everything else it, there is an issue with the sensor in the oven that detects the steam, The emission of steam is what triggers that unit to shut off. If it wont cook on any settings then the issue is with the microwave generator not putting out enough power. This could be from a lot of things.

New microwave stopped working after 15 seconds


Possibly the fuse / breaker is tripped, usually all outlets in one room share same breaker. Check breakers (or fuses) or try outlet in differnt room. If the outlet has power, (plugin a lamp to check) and the microwave still does not work, take it back to store for replacement or refund.

The main fuse in the microwave oven has blown, this is often caused by one or two door switches going bad usually the result of food partical build up and must be replaced to fix the problem.

Stopped working mid a 2 min set. no lights no clock display,


The most common cause of this type of failure during the cook cycle is the fuse melts causing a dead condition. To replace the fuse the cabinet has to be removed and the fuse replaced with the same type and amperage. Pay attention to the fuse holder to make sure it isn't burnt or corroded causing a poor connection which overheats the fuse.

I've got a Kenmore microwave that just stopped working in the middle of a timed cooking. The model # is 721.69200890. Is there a fuse to change or something like that? Thanks, Roland


If the oven is completely dead, (no light or display) it probally is a fuse problem. It does have a 20 Amp fuse. With that being said, I would stress that a qualified service technician check it out. There are some high voltage components inside and a person who is unfamilar with high voltage components can seriously get hurt or even die if they don't take the proper precautions working with this type of appliance.

We have a GE Profile Spacemaker XL 1800. It began making a laboring noise and stopped cooking at the same time.


Sounds like the Magnatron or the HV Cap or diode is failed. Process of will show you which one. Very dangerous area to work in, not for the untrained. Eric
