There is a short circuit happening on your microwave. It may cause by a shorted to ground heating element or a wire that is expose to each other probably cause it by the generated heat which the plastics wire become thin. It's dangerous to use so I advice you to call a service tech near your area.
I hope I give you a idea in your microwave problem.

Microwave oven no power


The main fuse is probably blown.

When replacing, try to determine the cause.

if it has a bad door switch, then the monitor/short switch also must be replaced. On an inverter, replace the power relay as well.

If the fuse holder is not holding the fuse securely, then it will heat and blow.

A failing component in the high voltage circuit can also cause the problem.

Sharp 930 AK Convection/Microwave Oven


When you close the oven door the latches operate a couple of interlock switches that control power. It may be that one of the door switches is bad or out of adjustment. It's also possible that one of the door latches is broken so it's not hitting the switch. There should be two door latches. Are they both there? This oven could be fixed by adjusting or replacing the interlock parts as needed. Because of concerns about microwave leakage from an improper door seal, you should have this oven serviced by a professional.

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.

Most likely the lower door interlock switch is bad. Cheap and pretty easy repair.

Martin Microwave Inc. sells the switches for around $5....

My microwave/convection oven blew a fuse. replaced it and the convection works but when I try to use the microwave it blows the fuse again. what needs to be fixed?


Typically, when the fuse blows in the microwave, the high voltage capacitor fails and becomes shorted.
The door switches are also configured in such a way that if tampered with (in this case, failed switch or latch) the fuse will also blow. Check the capacitor first.

If you need further assistance let me know
