The fuse for this model is on the filter board on top of the internal cooling fan frame.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven (JMC8130DDS) here.

If the fuse tests good, then the oven cavity thermostat, magnetron thermostat, and control circuit board (which we repair) are other parts that can make the oven dead.

Accessing some components (especially the oven cavity thermostat) for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall and take off the outer cover.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

    Can you advise if the fuse is accessible from the interior of the microwave, or does the whole microwave unit need to be pulled out of the wall in order to access the fuse? Thanks.

Can you remove the microwave separately without removing the complete oven/microwave unit? KEMS307DWH4 KitchenAid Wall Oven/Microwave combo unit

Hello Richard;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service technician.

Your microwave is in a separate housing than your oven. You need to remove the border stripping holding the micro wave in the wall, then lift up in the front and pull out.

Go into the following website, put in your model number which is on a label after you open the microwave door.

You did not tell me what the problem is. Please advise so I can help you further.

Put something to heatup after pushing start made standard startup noise then abruptly stopped working even electronics....breaker fine and receptacle working....does this unit have a fuse??

Almost all microwaves have internal fuses. Counter top micros need to remove outer case and fuse should be near where power cord enters the microwave, Fuse looks like old style glass car fuses but is white or gray ceramic. Can't look at it to tell if its bad. Need tester. Over the range (wall Micros) usually have the fuse directly behind the control panel which you will need to drop down away from the body. Same type fuse as stated before. 15 or 20 amp should be stamped on metal edge. Purchase at Radio Shack or a parts store---or some Hardware stores.

If mounted on the wall above the range, this may be a 2-man job to remove, and the electrical repair may not be for DIYer. 1st ask "Why is fuse bad?" Usually the fuse is located with other electrical/electronic components behind the control panel. To access: unplug, remove MW from wall, remove bonnet (3-sided metal shroud), expose the electrical compartment on the right side, search for the fuse (usually 1 1/4 x 1/4D cylinder). Replacing the fuse may not be the final answer.

Power went out, unplugged for awhile and still no power (checked house breaker and wall socket with another unit and power seems fine). Is their a fuse that could need replaced?

With the model number, I could have given you specific tips.

Without it, I can only tell you that it could be a fuse or one of the thermostats.

Microwave electrical problem

Unplug, take all the screws out from around the case. Remove case. There is a fuse inside (Without Model number I can't tell you right where it's located) It looks like one of the old round car fuses only it's white colored. It's made of ceramic. Replace it and put unit back together. This is a common problem when one does what you are saying yours is. Be thankful that's all, if you had anything working it would be something major and would be cheaper to replace unit if it a counter top model.

I have a sharp microwave oven R 1514. there are 4 buttons on the front and one is broken, will not pop back out. I bought new springs and need help with the installation

It looks like you need to remove the unit from the wall, remove the outer cabinet sheet metal, then remove about 6 screws from the backside of the control panel.
You should be able to tell as you get in there what needs to be removed.
But it doesn't look like you can access to replace without taking the outer cabinet off.

Burning wire smell

Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty.

I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

There's usually an input line fuse on a small circuit board (part of an input line filter circuit) in most microwave ovens. This is usually a 20 amp appliance fuse that you can purchase at most major hardware stores (you would need to look at the fuse to verify the rating). You would need to remove the exterior cover to access the fuse. Its usually located near where the power cord enters the unit. Make sure you unplug the unit prior to attempting any repairs to the interior circuits. Microwave ovens are particularly dangerous as the the voltage potentials in the high voltage network are in the 3000-4000 volt range. In addition, most manufacturers provide a schematic drawing with troubleshooting advice behind the operator console, or inside the interior cabinet wall. I hope this helps you.

No Power

My microwave was totally dead. Things I discovered: 1) There is an easily replacable fuse accessed by taking off the top front vent cover (two screws on top, gently massage off) and then the inside plastic grill. UNPLUG before doing this! 2) Pop off two wires on either end of fuse holder for safety. Then pop out fuse and replace. For more extensive help, there is an evelope with a wiring diagram inside the case on the inside wall! Very helpful when diagnosing the surface lamp problem (I forgot to plug the ballast back in when I closed up the bottom).

Fuse blows immediately when start button is pressed

It sounds like the high voltage capacitor.

You first need to be sure the unit is unplugged from the wall.

Assuming the HV cap is shorted, there wouldn't be any need to discharge it (*grin*) but it's good practice. Once you do that, you can remove the leads and ohm it out. That will tell the tale.

If that's not it, then it may be a bad high voltage transformer. *
