Question about Microwave Ovens
My oven died today when I pressed the add a minute button. It's probably a blown fuse. Where is it located, so I can check it? (Kenmore 721.66319500)
You can usually find an exploded view by entering your FULL model number (721.66319500) here.
But there's usually a reason the fuse blows!
If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor too.
If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer too.
If it's intermittent or random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or a loose fuse holder, or even an intermittent fuse.
