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

See this file on door switches.

Otherwise, it may have taken a surge on the power line and shorted the varistor on the control circuit board.

Why is my GE Advantium SCA2001 blowing the main fuse?


Yeah pal, you've not gone deep enough yet. You'll find a power wire bare inside the unit, pull it apart and tape that wire up to stop it from grounding out and blowing the fuse.

Got switched off suddenly and all panel lights got off


The main fuse is inside the cabinet near where the power cord enters. When everything goes dead all of a sudden, 99.9% of the time it's the fuse.

I have SUNBEAM microwave, model SM0701A7E--how do I set the power to MEDIUM? Thank you.


After a long search and reading I finally got it. To adjust power level follow these instructions:

1. Set timer for amount of minutes you want.
2. Hit "power" button"
3. Change the power from 100% to another percentage by hitting numbers 1-9
4. Press Start

Microwave is plugged in, but getting no power, circuit ok, cannot find a fuse on the microwave.


Normally if no power is indicated, it is due to a blown fuse but if fuse has blown be careful, it because there is something wrong. Mostly its due to a problem in the power circuit.Can either be the magnatron or the diode capacitor combination.Normally the capacitor goes faulty causing the HV diode to blow. Replace the two components(diode and cap.). If it happens again replace the magnatron. Microwave truely dangerous and needs proffesional att. email me if you want to go ahead yourself

Our microwave went dead. It's only three years old. My husband put some chicken wings in, closed the door, and everything went black. We plugged in a nightlight in the power source and it worked. Any ideas...


a few possible causes,
1, the high voltage fuse,
2, the high voltage capacitor
3, the slow blow fuse ( normally found on a small pcb inside unit)

other than that, check the door switches and maybe the x former.
good luck.

Microwave stopped working


Generally, you get something unless the fuse inside is blown. There is generally a fuse inside the unit when you remove the button package. First, make sure that the outlet you have is good. Plug something else into it and see that it works.
