When you see burnt isulation, that normally indicates that you had excessive current thru the wire above its normal rating and it got hot enough to melt the insulating jacket. During storms, it is not unusual for a lightning strike to cause a power surge on your incoming power and there are numerous reports of damage to electrical systems from this event. The fact that you covered it with electrical tape doesn't necessarily mean that the conductor is good,..It could be open ( meaning: the wire is broken someplace) and not able to pass current thru it. If you feel confident in measuring the voltage at that termination point with a suitable voltmeter, that would tell you if your pwoer feed is OK.. Of course, if you aren't well versed in th eproper technique for measuringthese kinds of things safely, you might want to get an electrician.. There is the chance that your control circuit got damaged from the power outage.. The fact that other things work suggests that you have at least one phase of the 220VAC feed operational. Hope this helps and if you do decide to diagnose this further, please be careful..

After a power outage my oven does not work and only the left half of the stove is working, any thoughts?


Needs resetting. With power off, press middle button and hold in. Turn power on and continue to hold middle button until STOP disappears. Should now be able to reset.

Will not power up after power outage


it contains two fuses one of 10 Amps and other for 500mA.
Replace 10Amps fuse with same type and rating.Best thing is to take this fuse and show it to the sale person of electronic shop.
Before you touch any parts of the microwave oven please disconnect the mains power chord and never touch the main power capacitor as this contains very high voltage even after disconnection.
