Could be a bad fuse, but more likely is a magnatron that is going. Be real carful when working inside the microwave. they have large capacitors that will give a pretty good bite even when unplugged.

Have i been conned by my local technician?


I think he is correct, the fuse will blow if magnetron is faulty and the magnetron unit will look burned but not the casing that's why there is a fuse to stop the microwave catching fire, take a tip from me it's usually cheaper to buy a new microwave than a new replacement magnetron, the only cheaper way is try and get a used magnetron but then you run the risk of reliability issues it's totally up to your personal choice

Unit has no power nor is display lit up. Have power to cord. tripped breaker. is there an internal fuse behind control panel

Microwave ovens have an internal fuse to protect the unit. Once you remove the white cover it is easily located on a board where the main power cable first goes into. Despite what you hear about dangerous radiation generated by microwave it is sage to turn on the microwave with the white cover off because the radiation stays within the microwave cavity. If you buy pass the door interlock then you may be exposed to some radiation escaping from the door opening. No match can go wrong in a microwave. Usually its something simple like a bad connection a burned fuse .or a burned power supply if it is microprocessor based unit.

Panasonic NN-S252 Microwave was in use. It stopped, control panel was dead (as if a fuse blew) and there was an odor of burning rubber. There is power to the outlet. Is there an internal circuit breaker?...

if your smelling burning from your microwave its well past its sell by date,, dont even think of getting it fixed just dump it and buy a new one,
there is a hight chance the capacitor has just blown up on you and there not that cheap to fix anyhow so buying new one is your best bet

Why wont it power on?

probably a burned out fuse.

unplug it, open the case, and trace the power cord. There is usually an in-line fuse before the cord attaches to the main transformer.

buy a replacement in the hardware store, look for an old-style automotive fuse.

Stoped heating and had a smell like somthing electrical was burning? Fix it or buy a new one?

HI, normally, when you smell the burning electrical wires and board components, this will confirm a major capacitor malfunction. in this case, all electronic component will be fried or destroyed. these parts are the running diode,magnetron tube,cut-off fuse,noise filter and control board as well. all these parts will be costly to replaced, and it will be more cost effective to just cut your loss and purchase a new unit. the newer unit will be cheaper than the actual repair bill in this case.

GE Profile spacemaker stopped heating all of a sudden everything else works. vent turning plate etc.Model # JVM1660CB Serial # F2909188S should I fix or buy new one...and which is the new model?

You may have a fuse that burned out. not everything runs on the same circuit . If its not the fuse than its probably the mega-tron, and that's big money. Check the fuse first. good luck DFD

Burning odor, no heat

A burning smell along with a different sound (growl) USUALLY indicates a breakdown in the High Voltage Side. This is not a direct short (short circuit) or the line fuse would have blown shutting everything down. The High Voltage Side is made up of-- The Secondary ,or High Voltage Side of The High Voltage Transformer, A High Voltage Diode, A High Voltage Capacitor, and The Magnetron. If The High Voltage Transformer is the problem it will smell like a florescent light ballast burning, and will smell each time you turn on the MW. A HV Diode burns and opens, thus no more smell. A HV Capacitor usually does not burn nor does the Magnetron. There is no Cheap-Fix unless you can see that the HV Diode is burned into and you can get to it to replace. CAUTION: Always unplug from power before attempting to repair. NOTE: If you replace a Diode make sure it goes back in the same direction it came out. Yes there is a front and back.
