SAMSUNG MICROWAVE FAN STOPS WORKING. COULD IT JUST BE THE FUSE?


I would guess, I do not know for sure that the fa motor seized and blew the fuse, during the process the internal protection device on the fan motor opened giving you exactly what you are describing.

No power - blown fuse?


If it was run without the fan a thermal protect device was more than likely taken out. Check for that and replace the fan.

The fan on my emerson microwave model#mwg9115sl stopped working and now it shuts off by itself is there a way to fix it or someone who i can take it to?


The fan primary function is to keep the magnetron cool while it runs, if the fan stops the thermal fuse senses an increase in temparture causing the oven to shut down. I suggest a tv technician or appliance repair man because there is dangerous high voltage present that can cause serious injury or death.

I have a Microwave model 721 63252300. It suddenly stopped heating. The other main components are working, fan, light, and turntable. Thoughts?


Hi! from what you have describe, it seem that your magnetron is not working that is why it is not heating. try to look for a busted fuse.

We had a lightning strike near our home and our Ewave OTR microwave quit, nothing works but the light inside and the vent fan comes on automatically. We've been told that there is a fuse that can be...


If the light and fan work then it cannot be the fuse. When the fuse "blows", it stops the electricity totally from flowing into the microwave and nothing will work or respond. The fuse is behind the control panel and this requires several hidden screws to be removed. Also, you must be very careful of the 2000 volt charge that is stored in the wiring further into the compartment behind the control panel. Therefore, do not attempt to open the micro control panel without proper service knowledge.
Because you say the light and fan operate, the fuse (as I stated ) is not your answer; most likely the problem is in the control panel circuit board. The circuit board is like any sensitive electronic component that goes crazy when there is a voltage surge that strikes it such as lighting throughout the house wiring. The board needs to be replaced unless you can have an electronic wizz-kid test is out and repair it , or just by a new board. By the way, the board is not cheap and may be difficult to locate since I understand the the manufacture stopped producing it.

Fuse keeps blowing. Why?


The HV diode in the power supply for the magnetron is probably shorted.

No light, internal fan...then no display


The light isn't a safety issue but I would think that the fan would be.

The fan is designed to remove excess heat from unit and keep it cool. Without the fan, you're now operating the unit under conditions that it wasn't designed for.

With the unit unplugged, try removing the cover and see if a fuse has blown. If so, replace it with the EXACT value of the original.

See if the unit powers up again. Try heating heating up something for 30 seconds to see if the Magnetron is still functioning.

If so, check to see if the bulb is good. Did the bulb and fan stop at the same time? If so, it might be something in common that controls both.

Don't operate it further until you have it looked at. You don't want to cause something else to fail.

Good luck!
