SOURCE: Panasonic door won't open

the main cover of the microwave needs to be taken off so you can get the door opened and then you should have access to the screws that hold the door together. the housing is the main part of the mw and once its off you should be able to open the door from the inside and thus be able to work on the door latch..please rate me thanks

Where is the fuse on KitchenAid model KHMS2050SSS microwave?


Fuses in microwaves are generally located behind the control panel. They can be close to the panel, midway back in the microwave case, or all the way back on the rear wall of the housing. Accessing the fuse will usually require removal of the entire outer case, and in some instances, the removal of additional interior panels. If you decide to do the job, be sure to replace the fuse with one exactly like the ceramic one you find in there. Glass fuses are not designed to handle the power that goes through these ceramic fuses.

How to open front ge over the range microwave fuse\


Hello guest.
Before you attempt to repair a microwave oven yourself, you have to have and know how to use a multimeter, whether it is analog or digital. You need to be able to determine what components to check and what to look for. If the main fuse is blown (open) you need to check all of the components in the high voltage circuit before you replace the main fuse. You MUST know how to discharge the high voltage capacitor before you put your hands or test leads in the general area of the high voltage section. It can easily kill you if you are not careful to respect it properly. I take it that the unit is "dead". No display, and it acts like it is unplugged from the wall. If the main fuse is good, there are typically two or three temperature or thermal 'fuses' besides the main 'line' or 'monitor' fuse. Some of these are self resetting and some are a 'one time' type. Before you even open up the microwave, you need to verify that the power to it is valid. I don't mean to sound condescending but I don't know your level of familiarity or experience. To gain access to the area behind the control panel, you typically need to remove the louvre or the top panel above the door and control panel area. With that out of place, you should see one to three screws holding the control panel escutcheon in place either on the top or the side of the panel. Some panels are mounted differently, hinge outward, hinge down, etc. You may or may not find the fuse holder once inside that access area. Again, BE CAREFUL and make sure that there is no electrical power in the area that you are working. Good luck.....

Panel problem


Hello

Unplug the microwave from the wall outlet prior to disassembling.


Open the microwave door. Remove the screws securing the grill above the door opening to the microwave. Remove the grill.


Remove the screw located at the top of the control panel, which is now visible with the grill removed.


Lift the control panel up to release the tabs securing it in place. Move it away from the microwave.


Look at the rear of the control panel to any disconnected wires that may have caused the control panel to stop functioning. If wires are disconnected, reconnect them, reassemble the microwave and determine if the problem is still occurring. If the problem still occurs, replace the control panel.


Transfer the wires from the old control panel to the new control panel.


Move the panel back against the microwave's control panel housing. Slide it down to lock it into position.


Install the screw at the top of the control panel.

Replace the grill on the top of the microwave. Secure it using the screws that were removed.


Restore power to the microwave.

Is there an internal light in the NNT664SF


Yes, there is a light on the right hand side of the microwave (looking at the control panel). It is located directly behind the control panel and may be seen with a flashlight looking inside the door through the perforated metal housing. Four special hex-with-stem screws must be removed from the cover to access it, along with one standard Phillips head screw on the side. Once the screws are removed you must slide the cover toward the back about 1/2" before it will be able to tilt up and be removed.

For safety reasons make sure to unplug the unit and allow it to discharge before removing the cover. Also make sure to not touch anything you aren't intending to work on - it could be carrying power from the capacitor, which is like a battery, and might not be discharged while you are poking around inside.

I am currently seeking out a replacement lamp for mine. I could not find one at any of the local hardware stores as this has a proprietary base and the bulb is not removable from the base. I will be looking on ebay and elsewhere.

Panasonic microwave oven


Microwave fuses are normally located either on a filter board near where the power cord comes in, behind the control panel between the door switches, or behind the control panel in a hodler, sometimes on the floor of the chassis.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

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

You can find an authorized Panasonic servicer here.

You can order Panasonic parts from Tritronics, but if you don't find what you're looking for there, try here.

Microwave Power Blew Out - Kenmore Elite Model 721.63763300


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

If you someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

There should also be a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel. It's very helpful when troubleshooting.

Stuck Microwave door


In most cases this is due to a broken door opening lever or loose or broken door latch / hook parts. They can only be accessed and examined if the cover is removed from the microwave. In many over the range models, you can access the door parts by removing the control panel assembly. Sometimes you may be able to get it open by pushing up gently on the bottom of the door while pushing the button, in case you need to empty it.
