Behind the control panel remove the grill and the screw at the top center of the control board. give it a bit of a lift and pull out you can then access the fuse if I remember correctly it should be to the left in there somewhere

Where is the thermal fuse located at on kenmore microwave model 665

Depending on the total part number 665xxxxxx a replaceable fuse is located behind the control panel usuallyon the floor of the control cabinet.

on one specific model "not yours" to check out the fuse locations a part number 309796 was found and I've included an image. Values of the fuses change based on specific models.

A typical location is included in the following image.

26047724-i5ybdsgcpm55v0g4hkv2rsri-5-2.jpg During previous repairs the fuse holder has failed and has required repair in addition to the fuse being replaced. This work needs to be accomplished by a qualified repair person. Even with power remove voltages remain because of stored engergy in the capacitors.

Hope this has been of help?

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!

How do I find the fuses in Microwave

Mainly there are three/four fuses in Microwaves depend to maker.
First one to be checked it is on plug about 13A in cable out side microwave
Second one for power supply usually comes 10A located in terminal board of cable supply in side microwave if you follow the cable.
Third fuse i think about 5A for high voltage it located usually on wire connected between transformer and capacitor.
Fourth some Microwave have third one on the control board located behind switch panel.


if the second fuse is blowing immediately after starting microwave that usually mean one or more of the following need to be replaced

1- diode
2- HV. capacitor
3- magnatiron

Which only can replaced by skill technicians

Model gh7155xhs how to find and replace fuse

Hello SHahidbell,

I understand that you need to replace the fuse in you microwave. I have located the fuse for you from its cost is $12.27 here is a link to the part

1. Unplug the unit
2. Remove the outercasing
3. Locate the fuse holder, this unit only has one
4. Use a pair of pliers to remove the fuse gently not to crack it
5. Install the new fuse
6. Install the outer casing
7. Plug in and try

You do not want to try the unit with the outercasing off. Microwaves give off radiation the outershell helps to reduce this radiation.

Thank you for choosing

There seems to be no power. No clock. no nothing. It was working fine and then jut stopped. Circuit is not tripped. I tried unplugging and plugging again.

most likely you will have to remove the louvers or trim above the cooking cavity to get to the fuse, look for screws holding the trim/louvers on, if no screws are apparent, the piece may slide to the left or right and pop off.

Unplug your microwave. Although it might seem like no electrical current could possibly be running through your appliance, it could still have stored electrical current somewhere in the system. Be safe rather than sorry and unplug it before you begin.

    Find the wiring diagram for your model of GE microwave. You can contact GE directly to get this if you cannot locate your owner's manual. Note the fuse locations and get a screwdriver. Some GE fuses are located under the louvers, while others are located in the door.

    Open up the microwave and locate the blown fuse. Sometimes you cannot determine a blown fuse by visual inspection so check it with a multimeter for continuity across the terminals.

  • 4

    Replace the blown fuse. Go to your local hardware store and pick up a matching fuse. Make sure you check the model numbers of the fuse as well to be sure you get the right component. Install the new fuse and put everything back together.

    Check the continuity of the circuit if you continue to have power problems. If you have a problem with continuity in the circuit, then you may have a bigger problem than just a blown fuse. Sometimes a power surge will fry a GE microwave's circuit board, which you will need to replace.

    Cooks Model 2115 microwave oven will not power on when connected to the 110v outlet. Can this be a fuse problem? If so, where is the fuse located?

    Yes, is probably the fuse. I have fixed several microwaves with this problem and the fuse is almost always located just inside where the power cord enters the unit. Just remove the skin (usually screws on the back and BOTTOM also) test the fuse with a micro meter. If no contenuity, replace with same size, type and rated fuse. Most microwaves are 20amp fuse.

    Micro wave simply quit. How an I check to see if

    The fuse is located inside the microwave. You will need to remove the front panel to get to it. It will be located on the black power wire inside the microwave and installed inline. Make sure that the microwwave is unplugged before removing the front panel. Once you locate the fuse inside you will need to remove it and test it with a continuity tester to see if it is blown. If it is make sure you replace the fuse with the same amp rating you found. If the new fuse blows again then there is an electrical short somewhere inside the microwave.

    most likely the internal fuse
    be soooooooooo carefull in replacing this , the capacitor inside the machine can store a huge charge

    1. Turn off all electricity to the microwave and unplug from the wall socket. Move the unit to a well-lit location to better see the appliance.
    2. Step 2 Usea schematic for the particular model of microwave being worked on tolocate the area containing the fuse to be replaced. Fuses can belocated behind the microwave door or behind a panel either on theinterior wall or an exterior panel. Often the fuse will be behind apanel located under the louver vents on top of the microwave.
    3. Step 3 Removethe panel according to the manufacturer's instructions. Use a screwdriver to remove screws and set aside for replacement.
    4. Step 4 Locatethe blown fuse and check with a voltmeter. This step ensures that theproblem with the microwave is indeed a blown fuse and not anotherissue. Check for current between fuse connectors.
    5. Step 5 Take the blown fuse to a local hardware or store such as Lowe's or Home Depot. Staff can assist in finding the exact replacement fuse for the model being repaired.
    6. Step 6 Placethe new fuse into the panel in exactly the same fashion as the blownfuse came out. Replace any panel using the removed screws and returnthe unit back to its proper location.
    7. Step 7 Plugthe microwave into the wall socket and turn on all electricity. Testthe unit by ensuring the clock and all other features function.
