    They hold a panel inside the roof of the microwave, they are plastic, round and about 1/2cm in width, similar to a rivet that is the best way l can describe them.



    Thank you for taking the time in responding to my inquiry

    Toshiba stopped making microwaves many years ago, but some parts may be available.

    Can you describe in more detail what you mean by "studs"?

    Do they hold a cooking rack or a panel in place?

Yes, those are 1- or 2-piece nylon rivets. Sounds like they held the stirrer cover or waveguide cover on.

The original Toshiba part number was 325541052 but they are no longer available.

You can probably find suitable replacement nylon rivets at a local hardware or home improvement store if you take one with you or at least measure the diameter of the hole they need to go into.

I'd say they are about 1/8' to 3/16" if I remember correctly.

Or at the same stores you can get some nylon screws a little bit fatter than the hole and screw them into the holes. You will have to force them, but they will work.

Nylon is transparent to microwave energy.

Good luck.

Make and model will usually be on a label plate on the back of the unit.
With the age of the unit and unlikely availability of spares you may be better to look for a new unit. Cheers, Dan

There is usually a 125V, 20 AMP line fuse inside the microwave, mounted at the point where the power cord enters the back of the unit. Unfortunately, you will need to uninstall the oven (if this is an over the range model), UNPLUG it and remove the exterior case to access. The case comes off in various ways depending on manufacture and model. I found this wiring diagram at pcappliancerepair.com based on the model number you listed this question under:

http://pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php


This model has TWO potential causes. The line fuse or the Thermal Cut-Out (Thermostat) for the Magnetron. The line fuse is connected in line with the power cord inside the unit and is listed as part of item 26 under the "Cabinet-Base-Cavity" heading.

The Magnetron Thermostat is listed as item 6 (part number 56001028) under the same heading. If you managed to overheat the oven any time recently, you may want to check the thermostat to see if it is still good. It should read 0 ohms when measured out of the circuit across the terminals.

If the line fuse is blown, you can usually purchase a box of fuses at a hardware store for just a little more than what the manufacturer charges for a single fuse. 125V, 20AMP Ceramic Slow Blow fuses are recommended.

If you have any questions, or need additional assistance troubleshooting, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

NOTE: Make sure you take any resistance readings with the microwave UNPLUGGED and the component under test isolated (removed) from the circuit. These ovens can blow a fuse by simply sitting idle. This can occur from any power fluctuations, brown outs, voltage spikes, etc. Or, it could be the symptom of a component that may have failed. If you find the internal fuse blown and replace it, only to have it blow again, you have a more significant problem than a simple blown fuse.

9 amps is approx. correct. Does magnatron make an odd sound when running? If not, you will need to discharge cap then clean terminals with alcahol. Replace diode as well. Should run correctly.If blows again, replace magnatron. Suggest you put a 12 amp fast blow fuse in circuit and nor a 20 fuse.If you dont have a grill or an oven, use a 10 amp fuse.
