For some reason , my microwave keeps blowing the fuse. Every-time I plug it in , it sparks and blows the fuse/trips the breaker. I dont think its the door switch because it has nothing to do with being...


Your unit is drawing way too much power, especially before you even activate the heater & fan modules. Could be dozens of causes. First line of defense is to check the power cord for a short. Consider your expertise and unit's warranty before opening it up. Check, trace and/or replace the cord. Don't ignore radiation exposure warnings, some shields are critical.

No power to microwave


Hello

Check the Power Cord

Verify that the power cord is properly connected the outlet; the plug might have been removed to make way for another appliance. Do not connect the microwave to an outlet via an extension cord or plug adapter; the oven must be directly connected to an outlet.
Switch the Outlet on

Turn the outlet on, if possible, using the switch on the wall behind the counter or on the plug itself. Some microwaves have a separate power switch that must be in the correct position before you can begin cooking.
Reset the Oven

Unplug the oven, wait a few seconds and reconnect the power. A power surge could have temporarily rendered the oven inoperable. The oven should start up as normal when you connect the plug to the outlet.
Check the Fuses and Breakers

See that the fuse or breaker protecting the oven's circuit is still active. Replace the fuse if it has blown, or reset the breaker to restore power to the oven. Stop using the microwave if it repeatedly blows fuses or trips breakers.

Do my microwave havea fuse because it wont turn


Yes, there is usually a 2 amp fuse located on the inside near the where the electrical cord feeds into the power supply. There might also be another fuse as well, be sure to check all around the power supply to be sure that there is only one fuse.

Plugging your microwave into an extension cord that is not rated for its use, or plugging the microwave into an un-grounded electrical socket could cause that fuse to blow.

I hope that this information was helpful to you in any way.

Blows fuses, no visible overheated areas.


there is a short in the unit, if the fuse keeps blowing when you replace it you will have to check for a short either in the power cord or transformer.NB: HIGH VOLTAGE!!!!!

If it blows the line fuse instantly when you push start.... it is either a shorted HV capacitor or shorted monitor switch.... most likely.

My ge profile microwave keeps blowing its fuse. i


Don't increase the amp size of the fuse this could cause the wiring to get hot or component to get hot and catch on fire. Is the fuse the main fuse the one that the power cord goes to?

NO POWER


Inside the microwave is a fuse. If you can, try plugging the microwave into a different outlet (use an extension cord). If it does not power on, you have likely blow the fuse. If you are technical, you may look into replacing the fuse yourself (you will have to remove some parts of the microwave exterior to get to the fuse). Otherwise, if no longer in warranty, you will need to have a shop or handyman replace fuse.
