Yes! there is a ceramic fuse, "white body with silver ends" located inside unit on right side near a silver rectangular capacitor. Remove top "2 to 6 screws" and unplug microwave oven, allow capacitor to discharge for 30 seconds, remove and take to Radio Shack Store or Appliance repairman for proper sizing.

I turned on microwave. lost all power after a few seconds. outlet has power


First, check to make sure you have 120 V at the outlet it's plugged into. If you do, then the most likely cause would be that the main fuse has blown. It is inside the case, usually near where the power cord enters the cabinet. If it is blown, visually inspect it to make sure it hasn't been getting hot - melted solder near the ends is the usual tip-off. If it has been heating up, the fuse holder may have to be replaced as well as the fuse.

Kenmore micrwave overheated. now won't work. is


There is a fuse inside the chassis that can be accessed by removing the 4 side screws and the 6 back screws on the chassis cover. First unplug the unit then remove the 6 screws securing the cover to the shassis. Once the screws are removed lift the rear of the cover about 10 to 15 degrees and pull to the rear. The chassis cover will then come off. NOTE: There is a large capacitor inside the chassis that will stil have a charge. Make sure to avoid it when reaching inside the unit. Follow the power cord from where it enters the chassis to the end terminals. One of them will terminate at the fuse holder. Remove the fuse, obtain a new fuse of equal value amd intall same. Plug the unit in to see if you get some from of power be it a light inside or the contral panel lighting up. If it is just the fuse and you see signs of the unit having power once again unplug the unit and re-install the chassis cover.. Make sure that the cover interlocks on the front of the chassis properly. All mating surfaces should appear flush. Re-install the 6 screws and retun the unit to service. If nothing happens please reply to this post.

No power to microwave


Hi

When your microwave oven doesn't work at all, it means interior fuse inside the microwave has blown (usually a part inside the microwave makes this fuse blow). Sometimes a bad fuse holder inside the microwave cannot hold the fuse tight enough and the fuse will blow as well. 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. It can also be due to a stuck or faulty door switch which might have blown the interior microwave fuse.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

My maytag microwave lost power


There is always a fuse inside a microwave.Sometime this has only blown due to a surge,and upon replacing, the microwave will continue working.If it is something worse the fuse will continue to blow.In this case it could very well be the transformer,but there are other possible causes as well.(for example the control board or a short.)

Micrwave does not heat, and turns off by itself before time


Unplug the Microwave and remove the outer cabinet. Inside the cabinet will be a thermal insulated fuse, looks like the old buss fuses for early model cars but white. Replace that with the correct fuse which can be found at Lowes or Home depot and see if that solves the problem. Be careful not to touch any capacitors if they are in there.

You say when you "power on" the fuse blows? If that means when you hit the START button to cook, then you probably have a shorted high-voltage capacitor. If you mean it blows when you plug it in, you probably have a shorted door switch. Your microwave may also have a wiring diagram pasted on the inside of the outer wrapper or in an envelope. That will help in your tests.
