You can fix it without the aid of a repairman. Simply unplug the microwave and remove the outer casing. There should be a few screws around the bottom edge and back panel. Once you have the unit open, look for where the power cord comes in. There should be a circuit board with a fuse mounted to it. This is your input line filter. The fuse should be a 20 amp appliance fuse that you can pick up at any hardware store (Lowe's and Home Depot both carry them). DO NOT op test with the outer casing removed. Potentials of about 14,000 volts are present in the high voltage network of a microwave oven. Close the unit up BEFORE you power it back up. Let me know if this helps.

SOURCE: Location of monitor switch for Sharp R-5A54B microwave

It's usually the one in the center, as opposed to the being near the top or bottom edge of the door.

The entire service manual is available for free download on the Sears parts site (page by page) at http://www3.sears.com/ (the 3 is correct)

Just look for the switch as ref # 1-7 on this diagram:

SOURCE: keeps blowing fuses

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

Here is a link you or someone you know can use to test it, but please read the safety info:

You can order Panasonic parts from Tritronics here or by calling 866-779-5835, but if you don't find what you're looking for there, try here.

What causes microwave to blow new fuse?


The only thing inside a microwave oven that draws enough current to blow a fuse is the magnetron that generates the microwaves to provide the cooking power. Based on the age of the unit (approx 15 years) it is most likely best to just replace it as repairs at that level are not cost effective. Newer units cook better and faster using less power these days.

GE Advantium 120 SCA1000DWW03 blowing 20amp fuse


Our unit was doing the same thing,
took it into the repair shop, they said there was nothing wrong with the unit, replace the main breaker that supplies power to microwave and try again.
Sure enough the breaker became defective, and we never had issues with it before, but now the unit has not had a single problem.

You blew the fuse on the control board. Unplug it, remove the cover to expose the guts, and you should see a fuse. Replace it and try again. If it blows again, then you will likely find it cheaper to get a new microwave than have the control board replaced.

Microwave doesn't work after house fuse blew


Check the fuse inside the microwave. Unplug the power, remove the case screws on the back of the main case and slide the case toward the back. Remove the outer case and look for a fuse that looks simular to an old automotive fuse, usually near or just above the control panel. Check the fuse to see if it is good, if not replace with the same and reassemble reversing method used to access the fuse. Note: automotive fuses will not work. A replacement will be available at The Shack or a local appliance parts store.
