Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Found a blown glass covered fuse (?) but cannot get it out of its end holders. Seems like it is welded in there! 5KV 0.75 A is engraved on one end. the outside white plastic holder has a sticker 03.11.10 printed on it. Too difficult to make out what's stamped on the other end of the fuse (?). what do I do next? Thanks a lot. Hap!

Hello there:
Yes you are right a lot of these fuses are soldered into place and the only way to remove them is to first remove the electronic board that it is on and then get a solder removing heat gun and unsolder the fuse and remove the fuse and then replace it and resolder it back into place if you are comfortable on doing this repair you will save yourself a lot of money about 50 to 100 dollars ok
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

Blown HV fuse


I would replace it with a fuse of the same 5kv.09 as replacing with another may overload the microwave and cause a fire.

not recommended to replace with a higher fuse rating or kind

How do I access fuse in a jmc7000adw? Unit is "dead", want to check fuse first before calling repair person


To check the fuse in the JMC7000adw you first should remove the power cord from the power source. Then remove the screws holding the outside cover of the microwave . The High Voltage circuitry may hold a residual charge that could be lethal so use appropriate care when near the High Voltage circuitry. The fuse holder is a plastic inline clamshell type that must be opened carefully with the fingers or pried open. The fuse holder is located above the micro-switches near the internal light socket. The fuse plugs into contacts soldered onto wires so carefully pull the contacts off each end of the fuse being careful not to get cut if the fuse breaks. Sometimes the blown fuse might come apart so you will need to force the fuse ends out of the contact using a small screwdriver or other small instrument that will fit into the end of the metal fuse contacts. After replacing the fuse with the appropriate size I suggest you might wish to see if the fuse blows again before reinstalling the cover. Most likely the fuse blows because of an overload in the circuitry or a short in the safety micro switches as noted in other posted solutions. These micro switches seem to be underrated for the current they may be carrying and the contacts will weld themselves together or intermittently stick together causing the fuse to blow as noted in my previous posting.

Microwave stopped working when i pushed the start button


Yes. The white inside the glass that you are describing is a blown fuse. To find out what size fuse it is look around the base or top of the fuse. You will see engraved something like "125V 5A. You can pick these up at Home Depot or Lowes in the electrical isle. You can also type www.google.com and enter the word "fuse" and then the size it is. (125V 5A) If you have found this information at all helpfull, please rate my solution. Thanks D. Lange

MICROWAVE WILL NOT HEAT


In my case I found an additional fuse, a high tension fuse (5KV 0.8A) in a white on-line isolation slave next to the transformer.
The fuse was blown.
I guess replacing it should solve the problem.

Possible fuse -- no power


Replacing a fuse Locate your fuse. Most microwave fuses look like the one pictured to the left. They are usually an inch or two long. Each end is metallic and the center is either ceramic or glass.
To get to the fuse, remove the outer cabinet of the unit, which is usually held in place with a few screws. Once the outer cabinet is removed, follow the power cord into the unit. It will take you to the fuse holder, where the fuse sits. The fuse holder is located two or three inches into the unit, and may be attached to a power board.
Decide if your fuse is blown. A blown glass fuse will produce flash burn marks on nearby surfaces, or it will be completely black on the inside. The internal fuse wire (filament) will be melted and blackened. Ceramic fuses give no outward signs of having blown. To determine if a ceramic fuse is blown, test it with an ohmmeter. If the ohmmeter reads zero ohms, your fuse is fine. A reading of infinite ohms means your fuse is blown.
Replace the blown fuse. Pop it out of its holder and snap in a new one. You can squeeze the fuse clips together with your fingers in order to tighten their grip. Replace the unit's outer cabinet, plug it back in, and test to see if it is running properly. DO NOT run the microwave with nothing in it.
NOTE: Fuses do not usually blow on their own. A fuse may blow because of problems with the interlock switches or with high voltage circuitry. It is also possible, though rare, that a power surge will cause a fuse to blow.
