Probably what has happened, one or more of the door switches has become damaged and will need to be tested and replaced. The door switches is part of the circuitry, and is there for safety reasons if something goes wrong.

I expect there will be a damaged or dislodged door interlock switch stopping it from working.

Arcing and bang noise


The arching is probably to the cabinet where paint is missing. This usually occurs at the edge where the microwaves travel into the cabinet. You can get microwave paint from your local appliance parts supplier. It's special paint that is non - conductive.

If your microwave oven doesn't seem to work at all, check these:

Fuses
Usually, when your microwave oven doesn't work it all, the internal fuse (thermal fuse) is blown. This fuse protects both you and the oven. When it blows, you need to have a qualified appliance repair technician replace it.

Door switch
If the fuse isn't the problem, check the door hooks and the door-release button. When these are broken, the door switch doesn't activate, so the oven can't work.

I would recommend that this product be taken out of service, especially if it is no longer working it seems as if the control board has some internal problem which could have cause this malfunction. If it will work you should at least unplug when not in use.

Microwave ovens does not work, ooven is plugged up and electrical power is check at the receptacle. No power .


Dead appliance, power on wall outlet.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!

Attempt this only if you are competent.

If your appliance has absolutely no functions at all, remove it from the mains supply, remove the case and see where the mains lead goes in to the appliance and follow the cable until you find the main fuse.
ONLY USE THE SAME TYPE AND RATING OF FUSE TO REPLACE IT.
The usual cause of this fuse failure is the door switches are contaminated or sticking. Check the door switches before putting power back on to the appliance.
Hope this helps.

you have a blown fuse.unplug the microwave. remove the vent by unscrewing the 2 screws holding it in place. gently pull vent grill forward to remove. open the door, and remove the screw holding the control panel in place. remove the metal plate being held in place by that screw. inside that panel is your blown fuse. remove the fuse and replace. reassemble the microwave. plug it back in.
