Hi Bill. it is possible that you may have just blown a fuse. Check the fuse and replace if it blows again check all the diodes in the power supply. If one reads in foward and reverse bias please replace dides should only read in one direction. If these diodes are not shorted check all the diode in the microwave especially the large one connected to the large capacitor. Make sure you discaharge the capacitor before troubleshooting this section because it can shock you even when the microwave is unplugged. If any diodes are shorted replace them this will fix your problem.

Why does our new microwave not work? Can set the time and it counts down when we have pressed start but does nothing else.


There is a big fuse inside that thing. Check to see that it is not open. Could be that the magnetron, lite, and dish are all on the same circuit.

Clock will not set time


Most microwaves just need to have the clock button pressed 1 time. Then you enter the time. Next some want to to pick am or pm. Then press clock again to set. Sometime last step is the start button instead of clock.

When the start button is pressed, it clicks a couple times. But, nothing else happens except the timer counts down, the fan doesn't run and the magnatron doesn't operate.

No power


your fuse is definately blown. possibly moisture. if you replace exact fuse and it blows again, powerside is defective.little bit tricky then as you have diodes, capacitor and magnatron also transformer to check. these need testing equipt.if you decide to press on, caution, capacitor is fully charged and dangerous.
