We changed the 20amp fuse and that was not the problem so we returned it to Macy's. If anyone knows of a reliable brand of microwave today please let us know. All the reviews on microwave ovens recently are bad.

Had poweroutage now oven dont work hoping its a blown fuse, and where would I locate the fuse fuse


You have blown a fuse. Check inside the oven chamber and look for missing powder paint or signs of arcing, if so dispose of the microwave. If the inside is good remove all the screws and remove the cover. Replace the fuse. If the magnetron was making louder noises prior then replace the magnetron. Since the fuse went the giant capacitor is likely bad. While the cabinet is open make sure to look for burned wires, check the continuity of thermal cutoffs, and check the main circuit-board for burned traces or components. The relays in most electronics are known for arcing (spot welding) and staying in the wrong position. Tap them hard with the back end of a screwdriver. During all of this use safe electrical practices by having the power cord unplugged. The capacitor could still have a high charge on it so be careful.

After plugging it in, the microwave made the normal noise and then the light went out and nothing works. No power to the unit. Are there any fuses that could be blown? Or is it toast? Thanks, Steve


Hi,

How microwaves are designed, this problem would be a door switch issue and a blown fuse. If this unit is new and under warranty returning as a DOA. If not find a friend to open the unit and look for a bad switch alone with an open fuse at main power supply.

Good Luck

Microwave blows fuse to kitchen outlet when it is plugged in. microwave still works.


What else in on the circuit? Your oven should be on its own. If you live where I live, this should be a 20 amp 120 Volt AC branch wired directly from your power panel.

If this is not the case, have a licensed electrician install a proper circuit for you.

Replaced 20amp fuse that was blown. new fuse did not blow, but oven is still dead.


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If your microwave oven doesn't seem to work at all, check these: Fuses Door switch Fuses Usually, when your microwave oven doesn't work it all, the internal fuse (thermal fuse) is blown. This fuse protects both you and the oven. When it blows, you need to have a qualified appliance repair technician replace it. Door switch If the fuse isn't the problem, check the door hooks and the door-release button. When these are broken, the door switch doesn't activate, so the oven can't work

Microwave is loud


It is normal to have a moderate sound, but if extremely loud it indicates trouble with the magnetron, should be returned for a replacement.

I have replaced the fuse in the # cmw 100 but it blows as soon as i plug it in


When the fuse goes on a microwave, if you can't find any burned wires touching the frame, it is usually a bad capacitor... sometimes the magnetron needs replacing too.

Viking Microwave Model VMOC205SS little over 4


9 amps is approx. correct. Does magnatron make an odd sound when running? If not, you will need to discharge cap then clean terminals with alcahol. Replace diode as well. Should run correctly.If blows again, replace magnatron. Suggest you put a 12 amp fast blow fuse in circuit and nor a 20 fuse.If you dont have a grill or an oven, use a 10 amp fuse.
