Question about Microwave Ovens
Whirlpool EASYTRONIC DOUBLE EMISSION SYSTEM M404 microwave
Our nine year old boy decided to open the door and use a small piece of rolled up paper to "close the lock" without having the door shut with the result that the door could not be closed anymore. However the clock on the display was still working fine.
I then used a nail to "pull back" the "hook / switch" into place so now the door can be opened and closed as usual.
However I am not able to switch on the microwave anymore, it does not respond at all; it appears to be dead. No clock, no light, no nothing ..
Meaning it is plugged in but when I press the Start button nothing happens.
I opened the device by removing the white metallic cover. On the inside located directly behind the Start button I spotted a glass fuse with light blue, orange, dark blue and brown circles around it. It seems to be OK still. Little metal wire looks fine.
Else I can not see anything wrong with the device. Is there another fuse somewhere?
P.S. I could not find my product in the list below. So I chose the first.
A problem with a door switch or door switch
mount (like this one) will cause the fuse to blow when the door is opened or closed.
There may be a second fuse inside.
You also need to check the door switches and latches to be sure all the debris is out.
There is often a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.
