Where is the fuse on a mod# SMH1816S microwave


Hi,

The next thing to check is the safety fuse inside the unit.

Here is a generic video explaining how to replace a power fuse on a microwave. Note that some special tools (ohm meter), skill and safety precautions are required to attempt this repair. If you are uncomfortable working on appliances or other electrical apparatus, it's best to consult a repair company. Your microwave may not appear exactly as the unit shown in the video.

Has no power,


see the next steps: God bless your use the common sense, NOT feared.
No Lights or Power, Unit seems Dead First check is the main fuse of the unit. On countertop units, you will need to take the shell off. The fuse will be close to where the cord comes through into the unit. OTR units, this main fuse is usually behind the control panel or possibly behind the vent. Usually the fuse is obvious if blown, otherwise test with an OHM meter, if open, replace fuse.
Some brands will also have a thermal cut-off fuse in the incoming voltage line to the control board. Older Maytags and Samsungs have this fuse in it. This thermostat looking fuse is usually above the oven cavity somewhere under the outside shell. Sometimes you can get to it through the vent of OTR models. Test with an OHM meter, replace if open.

Gh9115xe went off completely sometime after a cup of coffee was reheated. Now, nothing works. The outlet is live.


probably not
there is a glass fuse under the outer case near the circuit board
if that is blown it is from a short so you may have to take it in for a diagnosis

No power


No power at all? ... gotta ask, assuming it is a counter top model...if you plug something else into the outlet does it work? That way 'we' know there is power getting to the unit. If something else works in the outlet, (assumng a 2 outlet receptical in the wall) plug the microwave into the same outlet as the other item that worked. If still no power, you probably blew the internal fuse in the microwave.

That said, they are there for a reason, chances are there is another problem in the unit that needs to be fixed. An appliance repair man reently told me they are only expected to live 5 or so years anymore... pitiful....

Peace,

RCA Model RMW700 micorwave 1 yr old stopped working. No power, yet the outlet is live. No power to the display, no light inside, just dead. Stopped working when heating cold cup of coffee.


There is a fuse inside the cover of the microwave. You will need to remove the outer shell and follow the power cord you will see an inline fuse. This fuse can be purchased at any appliance parts house.

Hope this helped

No power ,completely dead


the fuse may be bad.if u r somewhat handy. you can try and fix yourself . fuse can usually be purchased at a home improvement store. 20 or 15 amp fuse. un plug unit remove top grill usuallly two phillips scews in the grill or 2-3 screws on the top of the microwave frt. next remove front control panel usuallt 1 screw at top of panel . once the control panel has been removed you can look inside that area and see a fuse, its ceramic usually white or grey and sits in a fuse holder. you can test it if u have a meter. should read resistance if good if no reading it is bad. replace it with same volt youtook out. if you rather a servicer doing it, then could cost anywhere from 65.00 to 105.00 to fix in home. if u take it in to get repaired then 85.00-125.00 depending on were u live and who u use. do it yourself for around 2.00-5.00 for fuse.always check power to unit first before you repair . use a extension cord to same outlet and see if that appliance works.hope this helps you.

Oven has been working fine. Heating a cup of coffee it just stopped dead. No display. Nothing. Power to outlet working fine. Is there a reset somewhere?


Mine did this when my wife had it on full power for over 10 minutes. We left it set for 15 or so minutes and it came back on. It did the same thing when my niece was heating a liquid with some metal in it. It eventually came back on. There must be a thermal circuit breaker inside the unit. Yours may have a fuse or some sort of circuit breaker inside it, that needs replacing or resetting. Then again some units have a fuse that goes out when the Magnetron shorts out, or goes bad. This would require replacing the Magnetron as well as the fuse.

Maytag umc5200aas Microwave is totally dead.


Be careful, a Microwave can be a death trap. Check outlet to make sure it's live. Could be a failed low voltage transformer.

Does the digital display light up at all? Is it completely dead? Are you sure it has power? Have you tried another outlet? If the outlet is good and the unit is completely dead, the internal fuse may have blown. You can try to take the cover off (with the unit unplugged) and look for a blown fuse. Try replacing the fuse with an EXACT fuse of the same rating. Try plugging the unit back in again and see if the unit comes back on. If not, you may have a power supply issue or defective Magnetron.

Please let me know what you find and we'll go from there.

Good Luck,
- Jim
