If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

If it goes dead or blows the breaker when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

Replace thermal fuse for LG microwave LMV1813ST


If too much current passes through the microwave circuitry, the line fuse will blow. If the line fuse blows, the microwave won't start. To determine if the line fuse is at fault, use a multimeter to test it for continuity. If the fuse does not have continuity, replace it. In addition, you should investigate and resolve the problem that caused the fuse to blow. If you don't resolve the underlying issue, the new fuse will blow too. (Caution: The microwave oven can store thousands of volts of electricity in its high voltage capacitor, even after the microwave oven has been unplugged. Due to the potential for electric shock, it is extremely dangerous to replace the electronic components in a microwave. Only a licensed technician should replace the line fuse.)

No power on the unit. I have power at the outlet. Is there a fuse in or on the unit?


Yes, the microwave has a fuse behind the control panel. it can be purchased at a radio shack or a store like wise. Usually when the fuse blows, it's from a power failure or something inside the microwave getting to hot/overloaded and it will blow the fuse to prevent it getting to the point of catching fire. So my advise is, after changing the fuse and it happens to blow again, then you have an internal issue. Parts for microwaves are expensive and replacing it with a new one usually out weighs the cost of repair.

Microwave blows fuse in microwave mode grill function ok


It is most likely the capacitor has shorted or the rectifier has shorted. Check with ohmeter, but make sure it is discharged first by shorting the capacitor with a wire.

Fuse keeps blowing.


couple questions -
what else is on the circuit,
and what current does the oven need

there are whirlpool over-range models with
1200watts of microwave,
1500watts of convection power, a
60watt bulb and a
375watt fan

over 15amps -20amp circuit needed

if you inadvertantly replaced a higher current fuse with a 15amp fuse, it will blow every time.
the install guide http://www.whirlpool.com/assets/pdfs/product/ZINSTALL/8206589.pdf reccommends 20amp
not a solution, something to check,

My microwave/convection oven blew a fuse. replaced it and the convection works but when I try to use the microwave it blows the fuse again. what needs to be fixed?


Typically, when the fuse blows in the microwave, the high voltage capacitor fails and becomes shorted.
The door switches are also configured in such a way that if tampered with (in this case, failed switch or latch) the fuse will also blow. Check the capacitor first.

If you need further assistance let me know
