    Is there a fuse in the power cord's plug?

    If not, then the internal fuse or a thermostat or thermal cutout (TCO) or flame sensor is probably blown.

The "under the microwave" light was on. All of a sudden, the light and clock stopped working. We have checked the plug and checked our fuses. Are there any troubleshooting suggestions out there? Thank...


There can be several fuses. Some on the board and some encapsulated in white plastic along wires. Do the buttons work (beep) when you press them? Is there any sign of life?

The main fuse in the microwave oven has blown, usually caused by one or two defective door switches.

This microwave is about 5 years old. It suddenly stopped working. No power, no lights coming on, just shut off completely. Can it be fixed?


Yes it can be fixed! the main fuse in the microwave has blown, this is usually caused by a defective door switch, but on occasion it is just the fuse.

I have a GE Advantium Oven that just suddenly quit working...no signs of life. Could it be a fuse and if so, where is it located on the unit and where can I find one to replace it?


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.

Unplug the thing, open it up, and carefully take off the pad button controls and anything else with wrong behavior, and wash those things out with dishsoap and deionized water.  It seems like a pad switch has saltwater or sugar in it, or crumbs pressing on it.  The door and main switch often need cleaning out also, though compressed air or cotton swabs (no excess water) will be fine.  Then put it back together, plug it in, and try it.

Kenmore elite microwave touch screen stopped working


Same thing happened to us. We just came back from Sears, where we bought another. Just for giggles, my wife suggested unplugging the old one and plugging it back in again. It works now. New one's going back to the store.

I have microwave ST/AL25 just outside its warranty. All of a sudden stopped working, changed fuse etc, but doesnt help. Seem like some sort of internal fuse. Anyideas? Thanks.


The fault could be the power supply, safety door switches, or the main logic control board. Any one of these, or combination of these, can cause the oven to act like its dead.
