HELLO,

Please follow the bellow instructions

1.Unplug your microwave. Insert the size 15 Security Torx bit into your multi-bit screwdriver and remove the screws from the back panel. Take off the back panel.

2.Locate the fuse. It should be near where the electrical cord comes into the microwave. The fuse is a small white bar with metal caps on either end. Carefully remove the fuse. Avoid touching the transformer or other parts inside the microwave.

3.Purchase a new fuse. Most Panasonic microwave ovens use an 18 amp ceramic fuse. Consult your owner's manual to find out what kind of fuse is used, or take the old fuse into the store to find the exact match.

4.Replace the fuse. Put the cover back on and see if your microwave works. If it does, replace the screws. If it does not, try a different fuse. If the microwave still does not turn on, you may have to have it replaced of professionally repaired.

Thank and thanks for using fixya.

How do yu take the back panel off of a kenmore 80 series 110.64892401


You really shouldn't remove the back panel yourself. If you are having a problem, contact Kenmore and see if it's still under warranty. If it is, then they will send someone out to do it, and you won't void your warranty doing it yourself. If it's no longer covered, your best bet is to call a repair shop, and see how much they would charge you to fix it.

Will not heat


Check your house fuse/circuit breaker panel. The dryer runs off 2 circuits -one for heat and one for the motor.

DRYER HAS NO HEAT AND I WANT TO TEST THE HEATING ELEMENT BUT AM NOT SURE HOW.


you should be able to remove the back panel (after unplugging the AC power!) to see the coil under the barrel. You can use a multimeter set to ohms to measure the resistance across the 2 connectors of the coil, will probably need to unplug the connection to get accurate ready. If the resistance is infinate, the coil is bad.

However it is more likely that the termal fuse has blown rather than the element itself being bad. Follow the connectors up to find it, it should have 0 resistance if still good, infinite is blown.

Termal fuses have spring loaded contacts inside held in place with wax. If the tempurature gets too high, the wax melts allowing the contacts to separate. They can't be reset but replacements aren't expensive.

If the termal fuse turns out to be the problem, check the vents for lint build up or other restrictions. (Both inside the dryer from the filter on, and the external hose going outside.) Restictions on the exhuast can cause the heat to build, and is a fire hazard as well.

try unplug and plug back in first let it reset and if that dont work, check thermal fuse may be blown..the fuse located in the back next to the fan in the housing. If fuse blown unit not work, if you go to www.appliancepartspros.com choose your model and it will give diagram of location termal fuse. check fuse first make sure is blown before you order it.
