Its likely that there is a fault in the element so by the time you pay for a new element and the cost of replacement it would probably over half the cost of a new kettle.

How do I take the oven out of its trim to check the fuse?


There are screws to take the cover off, look closely, or find it online.

Be very careful, there is a large capacitor in there that can do you some harm.

Confirm that the receptacle where the microwave is plugged in is not faulty by plugging something else in the recepticle and seeing if it works or if the fuse blows. Check the power cord of the microwave for broken, frayed wires. Also check the bulb socket for broken wires. It may or may not be worth the cost of repair, depending on the repair cost verses a new microwave. There are repair parts available.

It's likely that some part of the microwave has gone short circuit and blown the main fuse. The fuse is a 7000 volt glass encapsulated inline fuse housed inside a tubular plastic case about 2 inches long.
Renew the fuse and switch on. Look out for anything that is not functioning and replace that part, eg, fan, light, turntable motor etc.

Normally when no power coming on from the microwave the fuse has blown in the microwave due to a short hi voltage diode con bad located by the capacitor or micro switches located by the door clips. If you have no electrical experience do not temp to fix it yourself due to high voltage stored in the capacitor.

It just has no power. Nothing happened, I just went to use it and it was dead.


The main fuse is blown, "ceramic type" usually caused by a defective door switch.

My electrical water kettle does not heat water...how to solve the problem?


Check the kettle at another socket to ensure the socket isn't the problem.
Replace the fuse in the plug.
If the power flex is removable from the kettle, check the terminals in the connector havn't become burned.
The chances are that the element may have burned out in the kettle and in this case it probably isn't worth repairing.

Microwave went dead


Hi

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.


Please do rate the solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Microwave won't come on after circuit tripped


We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

There should also be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

Once you remove the control panel assembly, the fuse is located in a holder behind that area toward the top. The tech sheet shows part locations.

But you'll almost certainly need to have the control board repaired.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
