SOURCE: trying to change a fuse on microwave.

It may be the fuse or the thermal cutout / thermostat associated with the magnetron.

You say you have the service manual? If you mean the folded-up "mini-manual" that should show the relative locations of the parts in a perspective view.

Also, you can find exploded views at the Sears parts site.

Looking at the "interior parts ii" exploded view here, it shows the fuse (drawing reference # 5001) on the small RF noise filter board located on top of the air duct assembly.

You'll need to remove the oven from the wall to get to it for testing & replacement.

The installation instructions are handy to pull the oven from the wall.

If you've misplaced yours, the Sears site may have them free.

You can just enter your full model number at the Sears parts site.

On the resulting page, look to the right for the blue "View manuals" button. Click there.


That Sears-related site has many free manuals. While the manuals they list there are all free, they may ask you to register.

Many times, the owner's manual will have the installation instructions inside.

If yours is not listed there for free, you would have to order it through the
Sears parts site.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Most have a fuse inside on the small panel that the main power cord first goes into. First you would have to remove the outside panel on some it's like 4-5 small screws then look where the power cord enters and is soldered onto a board the fuse should be close too this. hope this helps.

There is a glass fuse on a small board inside the case, unscrew the case and find it, get a direct replacement (same rating)

Microwave not heating items

if it is fuse then there should be no lights or display at all. if there is, then it is not a fuse. it could be the magnetron.
the fuse is located inside the microwave. you have to bring it down and open the cover.

No power; the microwave does not come on when plugged in. Is there a fuse in the microwave? (it is not the main or house circuit breaker.) The power input cord appears to be open when checked with a VOM....

There is normally a fuse inside the microwave. Is there a fuse in the mains lead plug?. I don't know where you are but in the UK all plugs have a fuse fitted. If not it could be the one inside, but it's not something you should really attempt to change yourself. It really should go to a qualified microwave engineer.
Sorry I can't be more help but I'm more concerned with your personal saftey.
