There is a fuse found behind the upper grill, it is likely a 20amp fuse.
If the fuse has blown, it is likely that the door safety switches need to be replaced.
Change the fuse (unplug the micro first) and continue using. If the fuse blows again, have it serviced by a qualified service person.

I changed the fuse on a Frigidare #FMT118EPB Microwave and it blew again. I checked the micro switches with a meter and they seem to work. What else could be causing the fuse to blow? Thanks.


If you put in the correct size of fuse then what it needs is to go to a qualified service tech. What would be next requires removing the covers and if you do not know what you are doing you will fry yourself.

Why r 872 blowing 8w ceramic fuse repeatedly


Most microwaves usually use 15 amp fuses and not 8's. If it keeps blowing fuses there is a short circuit somewhere and you would need to track that down to stop your problem. A frequent possibility might be one of the micro switches in the door circuit.

Why did my micro stop working?


I guess the main plug fuse does not blow for the same reason it does not blow and you can wreck a PC, although not certain why that is. I have a feeling from past work on a Panasonic that there is an internal fuse as well. This may have blown with the power surge.

Blows fuse when you open door


Be-safe, Un-plug your microwave oven ,

Open the microwave cover ,
Close and open door few times to check the door latch(es) and switch(es).
Door switch assembly may has one or more micro switches.( Most switches are black or grey and about 1,25 in long X 3/4 in wide X 5/6 in thick with two or three wire connections).
Making sure door latch close and open these micro-switches.

You can hear the switch "clicks" when small switch pin or lever is pressed.

Sometime these door micro-switches pin or lever get stuck or broken.

You can take couple pictures before remove wires or micro switches

You can buy these switches for about 3-7 dollars online. Some web sites have video showing how to check them. (Using Volt-Ohm meter)

Micro blow circuit


You have a faulty interlock switch. This is one of two or three switches in every microwave that are operated by the door. The interlock switch is wired to blow the fuse if you try to run the oven with the door open. The switch may have gotten knocked out of adjustment (say by slamming the oven door) or its contacts stuck closed. If there are no other problems with the oven, a new switch should clear this up.

LG micro oven it not heat


I am not an expert on Miocrowave ovens, but from past experience I know that they have a number of micro-switches on the door as safety devices. If these switches are faulty, the last safety feature is to short the supply and blow the fuse to stop the microwave from operating in an unsafe condition. Obviously the switches would have to be checked first before jumping to any conclusions and a number of other faults would probably cause the fuse to blow as well.

Sunbeam SMW5500 micro/convection oven shorted out when opening door


You are decribing a typical Door Safety Switch problem. The Door Safety Switches has Failed.The Door Safety Switch is designed to shut down the Micro in the event the Micro is still cooking when the door is being opened. The first "Click" of the switch cuts off the "Cook". If it does not cut off the "Cook", the second "Click" blows the power. Otherwise it would "Cook" with the door open, and I need not to tell you how DANGEROUS that could be. It first Tripped the Circuit Breaker which supplies power to the Microwave. After Re-Setting the Breaker the same thing happened except this time the Micro is DEAD- not even a light working. Yes, there is a line FUSE inside the Micro. You however need to address the Door Switch SHORT before replacing the fuse. If not, it will just Blow The Fuse Again, and Again, until the Short is corrected.
Call around, ask How much to replace a Door Safety Switch.
Good Luck!
