    wife was cooking pizza when all of a sudden it just went dead. I thought it tripped the breaker but that was fine (flipped it on & off anyway) nothing works not even the display, I think it is the main fuse. Where is the fuse in the unit, like to try that before I call service.

Hi: there are two fuses in the upper right section of the box( near the power cord entry) but that may not be the problem. After spending a good deal of time messing with the fuses and finding them to be fine I searched the web and found that there seems to be a problem with these units blowing out their TCO. This is a safety that opens ( forever) if the cavity temp is too high.

Sharp R-9H84B-display black, cleared display shows "Conv Mix, 88:88 Auto". Short time all dark again. Hit clear happen 2 times then, all dark, no power, can't clear won't start, nothing works.

I would suggest pulling the control board out and looking on the foil side (opposite the component side) for "ring cracks," most likely on the low voltage transformer's connections.

The board may have the screen-printed reference designator "T1" near the low voltage transformer.


Also be sure the fuse is not easy to turn with your fingertips when it is in the holder. If it is, the fuse holder is too loose and must be replaced (not just squeezed with pliers).

You can order a fuse holder, part number WB06X10034 for $6.49 (subject to change) from the Pros here.

If you have any keypad issues, please note that the membrane keypads for this model have long been discontinued.

Where is the inline fuse for my Samsung SMH3150BF microwave please?

The fuse is inside your microwave oven. You will have to remove the unit from the cabinet and disassemble it to get to the fuse.

Do the Sunbeam microwave oven have an inline fuse? I have no power in the unit at all.

Most microwaves have a fuse inside the unit. Make sure that you have unplugged the microwave and then remove the cover and look for where the power cord goes into your microwave. Follow the black wire from the power cord and it should take you to either an inline fuse holder or a small circuit board where the fuse will be mounted. You will need to replace it with the same size fuse and the amp rating will be stamped on one of the silver collars. Hope this helps!

Food is not heated

two things could be wrong. One, There is an inline fuse that allows the current to flow to the magnatron. If this fuse is blown then the unit wont heat. Remove the outer cover and follow the cord into the unit and you should see the fuse. Make sure you replace this fuse with the same type. If the fuse doesnt work then the magnatron has gone out and cost for repair is about the cost of a new microwave

Working perfectly until I put the 2nd mince pie into machine. No power so I changed fuse on plug but nothing. Has it just worn out? David

You may have an inline fuse inside microwave. You need to remove the casing of the microwave to see if there is another fuse inside (usually near the magnatron) If there is a fuse there then there's your problem, if not, then there is no use in trying to repair since the magnatron unit has possibly gone bad.
Hope this helped you

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.

Need to know how to remove Advantium 120 convection/microwave oven Model SCA1000DWW03 from mounting above stove so that it can be taken to repair shop - problem is completely dead after power surge during...

Usually there are 3 or 4 mounting bolts located in the floor of the cabinet above. First you will have to disconnect the power and then the duck work if the unit is ventde to the outside. To remove the unit requires two people, one to support the unit and the other to remove the bolts. If you are doing it alone, quite difficult, you'll have to juryrig a deadman support. Ther is a wall plate behind the unit that has a lip that the back bottom of the microwve is locked into. After the bolts are removed slowly lower the front until you are able free the unit from the lip of the support plate.
