The fuse is usually located on the floor of the oven chassis behind the control panel, between the door switches, or near the back where the cord comes into the case.

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

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

Where is the fuse in under-counter miccrowave?


remove the vent grill at the top, may have to slide to left after screws are removed. then you will see a screw holding the control panel, remove. then slide the panel up slightly and the panel should come off. behind the panel you fine a 20 amp 250 vac glass type fuse. remove and replace. if your MW works cool,,,,, if it does not you may need to call for service.

Can be seceral things but let me run by the simple ones first.

The MW does not have enough airflow that eill causer the sensor to switch it off. Briing it away from the wall a bit for air flow

The moisture from the defrost caused the sensor to cut in and switch it off. Unplug the MW and leave for a few hours ( tea will be delayed :0)

The Internal fuse blew. The outer cover has to be removed to replace the fuse ( unlug it first)
The fuse may be of the heavy duty ceramic type Do not substitute it)

The throw out to the MW plug went off in h/hold power box. reset it. Test point with another item.

Now those are the simple things you should check. first

The main one is the failure of the magnatron, but you would have lights and turntable activity, so... so far so good.

Microwave not coming on when plugged in


The first step is to check the fuse in the mains plug. If this is ok, one will have to remove the microwave cover (un-plugged) and check the internal fuse.
If this is ok, it's an electronic fault and likely to be expensive to repair.
If the internal fuse has failed, it's usually for a reason.
Follow the above and reply.

There's no reset button, only a a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in and see if ti works.

A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

It may be the fuse, which is usually located on the floor of the oven behind the control panel, between the door switches, or on the filter board near where the cord comes into the unit.

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.

Hi there!

The cheapest way is to break the stud out with a small, strong, flat screwdriver. The give way quite easily. Then a normal multispline should do the job. Check for loose wires and loose solder connections on the display panel. You may even have a fuse that's hanging by a thread, hence the intermitency. Regards and good luck. JUS004
