It should normally use 13 amp fuses. The blowing of the fuses could be caused by a short somewhere either in the plug top or somewhere else along the circuit.

Arnie, if the inside light does not come on when you open the door, you most likely have a blown fuse. Un-plug your microwave and if you take the cover off and look to see where the power cord comes into the back of the unit. You will need to look for where the black wire from the power cord attaches to a small circuit board. Right where it attaches will be where you usually find the fuse for the unit. Normally most microwaves run on an 15 amp fuse but some use a 20 amp instead. It will be etched into one end of the fuse what size you are going to need. You also need to make sure that you get a ceramic fuse when you get it. Most appliance repair shops will probably carry the fuse or be able to point you in the right direction for getting one.

I have a blown internal fuse on my JennAir M170b microwave. The fuse holder says 250V, 15A fuse, but the fuse that was in there is a 125V, 15A fuse. The micro plugs into a normal 110V circuit. Which type...


The information on the fuse is the maximum rating. The holder may not match the rating.

The 'A' is the very important part of the size. You will need a 15 Amp fuse. The best fuse to use is 'ceramic'. You can find them at Radio Shack in the back of the store there are drawers with electrical parts.

15 Amp ceramic

SIZE OF INTERNAL FUSE A Belling BEL-CJ/SS25 Combination microwave oven The fuse has blown and the size printed on end cap unreadable any one any idea as to its value as it reads like T8H250V

Check to see if its marked on the panel itself could be an 8 amp 1.1/4 inch size must fit the correct amp fuse for safety also be careful as the Capacitor may hold a charge and can be lethal voltages within...good luck.

Changing a fuse, Hard?

well its not very hard to do,,, but,,, what caused the fuse to blow?
what fuse has blown as there are at least 3 of them in there, none of them are the same size as a 13 amp plug and most are of the slow blow type,,, even the hight voltage fuse!!! (ei:1000's of volts!) if a fuse has blown its most likely to be the unit getting near the end of its life, and sufferd whats called a "flash over" maybe on the capacitor or the megatron both would pop a fuse, but it will only do it again!! and that next time it could go with a big bang and stink your house out for weeks with a burning smell!!!! and if you dont know what not to tuch inside of this microwave dont go inside of it, it could easly kill you, even with the plug pulled out the wall scocket, there will still be 1000,s of volts kicking about inside of it,,, whats your life worth??????
microwaves are only £50.00p up now,, play it safe buy a new one

I have Whirlpool Microwave oven Model MH6110XEB-0 that has completely loss power. The outlet it is plug itno is still good with power running thru the outlet. I do not have any manuals for the microwave,...

with any luck you have just poped the inline fuse,
if you remove the control board you should be able to see the tube fuse up by the fan motor
if not the whole thing will have to come down to reach it

My maytag microwave lost power

There is always a fuse inside a microwave.Sometime this has only blown due to a surge,and upon replacing, the microwave will continue working.If it is something worse the fuse will continue to blow.In this case it could very well be the transformer,but there are other possible causes as well.(for example the control board or a short.)
