Microwave has no power

inside the microwave there is a low voltage power supply that powers the computer and display ... that is not working in your case .. if there is no low voltage power then nothing else will work .. there are several possible causes .. you can have a blown fuse on the low voltage power supply board (usually the main and only board) ... there is also a thermal fuse ... if the microwave magnitron got exceptionally hot then it could trip the thermal fuse .. this would kill power to everything else ... high magnitron tempratures can be caused by blocked air flow or running the microwave with nothing in it ... once the thermal fuse is tripped it has to be replaced ...there is also an over temperature switch that simply shuts off the power until the system cools , but this is self reseting unless it goes bad .. inside the microwave oven electronics are the most dangerous combination of high voltage and high current you will likely encounter in your life .. you simply have to know what you are doing in there ... this combination can be fatal in a fraction of a second ... your problem is inside there where its dangerous .. the low voltage supply and computer are not dangerous but the voltage they control is .. .. all parts that can cause this trouble are available for most microwaves so yes its repairable but think twice before opening .the case .. there are microwave repair centers around here .. the cost may or may not be reasonable since new microwaves are available for really good prices right now ....

Microwave not getting power

Unplug the microwave oven from the surge protector and plug it directly into a working outlet. If the microwave now works you will know that it is the surge protector that is not working. If the microwave still doesnt work you may want to trash it and just get a new one as they are now much cheaper, many around 50 dollars, and more efficiently use power.
