SOURCE: circuit board went dead

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.

And it will need a fuse, too.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

At our site, we now have a video available showing how to remove a typical control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

There may also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:

You can visit Daewoo online or call them at 1-800-323-9668 or 1-800-553-4355 to find parts or find your nearest authorized service center to have them do the work.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

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.

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.

Microwave oven - how to replace fuse


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.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Nothing happens..


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.

I would suspect it needs a new high-voltage capacitor and a fuse.

If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Actually, we also have the full service manual for this model on our site, linked above.

Microwave quit working

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

It may also be the high-voltage rectifier diode.
