Normally, if it was running and the fuse blows, it is then an electrical/electronic fault. If you simply woke up to the fuse being blown, then very possible it is only the fuse from a cocoaroach or the like.having gone onto a live part of the circuit. Pull the plug out and remove outer cover. Locate the fuse on the board where the power wire comes in and replace for the same value (normally 12 amps).Switch on and try with water in the microwave. Please stand clear when testing as the power is huge in the system. If it blows again, really, get a technician that knows what to look for when trouble shooting. 50% of the time it is the capacitor and HVdiode. Other 50%of the time it is the magnatron. Careful testing can ensure the right part first time. Microwave is one of the most dangerous appliances next to a tv set that i have found.

Replace the plug on microwave/convection oven


You will need a heavy duty 3-wire power cord rated at a minimum of 15 Amperes and 20 would be my choice.
Microwave ovens can draw well over 10 Amperes alone and having an additional heating element will raise the current consumption further.
Hopefully the circuit being used has a circuit breaker rated at 20 amps too.
Voltage rating is less important and any you find will be OK at 120VAC and likely hundreds of volts more.

Also, inspect the receptacle too; if the plug shows signs of heat damage, this can be caused by a bad wall receptacle.
Look around the cover plate on the wall for any signs of discoloration.
This is a sure sign of potential internal damage and both must be replaced to prevent a fire.

Whirlpool microwave gh7208xrb-3 fuse is good but the unit has no powernothing lights up at all it like it is dead.


Control board might be dead. Cost is quite high could run up to $200 or more. Many times I recommend just to replace it. Here's the dumb question, is power present at receptacle?, if over range microwave, in cabinet above microwave? Check for gfci receptacle tripped. Sometimes fuses appear good, always be sure to test with a meter.

I went to use my mirowave & it is completely gone. I pushed every button that I could & nothing happens. What should I do


first check the breaker in the electrical panel. your microwave should be on a circuit with nothing else. Depending on when the house was constructed. If the breaker is tripped turn it off and back on. If the microwave is plugged into a gfic outlet check to see if the receptacle needs reset. There will be a reset button on the receptacle. Their may be a orange light on the receptacle.

Whirlpool Range RF315PXDW. Electric range. Top burners and oven will not turn on. Clock on top of stove and oven light turn on. Oven preheat timer operates but heating elements in oven do not turn on....


It sounds like you are missing part of your input voltage.

I would take a voltage reading at the receptacle and confirm you are reading 220-240VAC. Some homes have the 220 service receptacles wired up with two 120 volt breakers to make up your 220 service. If your home is configured this way, you may have one of the breakers tripped. Or, the receptacle itself may be bad. If you confirm you have the correct voltage at the receptacle, your power cord may be bad.

The reason the clock and display will still appear to work is because the clock only uses 110-120VAC and is tapped off the source voltage. The surface burners and the oven heating elements, however, require the full 220 service.

If you are confused by this explanation, please post back and let me know. Hopefully, this is a problem that will not require any parts or a service call. If the power cord is bad, you can purchase a replacement at any hardware store. I hope this information is helpful.

Microwave is not working - no power


The key was that you mentioned it was purchased less than a year ago.

Burning wire smell


Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty.

I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.
