Microwave shows clock but blows fuse
Microwave ovens have a transformer inside them that puts out thousands of volts in order to create the "microwave" that cooks the food, but the clock and controls are on the circuit before that transformer.
Most of the times the transformer is bad and depending on how much you paid for it, not worth the repair bill unfortunately. But thats why you see the clock, even though the fuse blows. I am assuming you mean the Microwaves INTERNAL fuse, if not then it is a model with a battery backup to not loose data like your alarm clocks do sometimes, therefore you would show the clock but not be able to start the Microwave.
If it is the fuse or breaker in your panel that blows, then either the breaker is weak, or the transformer it shot. If it is 120volts, try plugging it into another outlet by either moving it or use an extension cord from another outlet you know work..if it starts, then you either have a bad breaker or some other electrical issue with the receptacle and should get a LICENSED electrician out, I say that because I am a Master Licensed Electrician and just because they say they are an electrician means nothing unless you see their license,plus ins. usually wont pay if there were a problem if an unlicensed person were used.
I hope I helped, if so please give me a thumbs up!
