Question about Microwave Ovens
Your issue is;
"we have a microwave modell MQ9998W, which is not responding, when we press start, it will not activate, clock counts,and light inside works, just will not start, I feel as though there is a fuse or something which is the problem. The unit is from 1990, if it is something simple i will try to fix , if not guess you know the alternative"
My Solution is:
Following this link, http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SmartSearch.aspx, provides valuable D.I.Y. safety information on the make and model number of your appliance. In order to access your product information, you will need to enter the model number stamped on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit.
Note: A volt-ohm meter is beneficial in performing electrical tests.
Thank you for providing a valid model number!
From your description, it sounds as if 1 or all of 3-4 door switches has failed. Using the link supplied above, you can view a page with these switches. The link below shows an exploded view of the service area. Using an ohm meter will help find the faulty switch.
Please show your appreciation by rating my solution.
