    NEED TO FIND FUSE

  • chloechloe Nov 20, 2008

    Hi, I have a national ne 6980 model quite a few years old but a great machine, Now it has started blowing its fuse. when you replace it and plug it in, the clock works ok, as soon as you put it on any power setting and hit start everything starts working for half a second and then it blows the fuse with a bright blue spark ( looks like heavy load ) I am thinking it could be the same sort of problem. nay ideas ?

Replace the fuse, when I find out where the fuse is.

If it blows the fuse as soon as you hit the START button, it's almost certainly a shorted high-voltage capacitor. If it blows a few seconds after you hit the START button, it's probably the high-voltage transformer. You'll possibly also smell a faint electrical burning smell from the rear vent after you shut if off. If it blows the fuse as soon as it's plugged in, you probably have a shorted door switch, a shorted varistor, or an internally exposed wire shorting to the chassis, etc.

WARNING: Microwave ovens are the most dangerous consumer appliance to service due to up to 5,000 V at high current inside. Even with the power off, there is a HV capacitor that can produce a lethal kick. This capacitor must be discharged before touching anything in the microwave generator circuitry. DON'T remove the cover yourself unless you fully undertand the SAFETY issues involved in working inside a microwave oven. A microwave oven is possibly THE MOST DANGEROUS common consumer product to service. About the only "easy" fix would be a blown fuse, if it keeps blowing, don't go any further unless you know what you are doing. Your likely options are a blown high voltage cap, diode, or the magnetron. Good luck(but luck has nothing to do with it ;] )

My panasonic microwave shut off after 6 seconds as something smells burned. Now it is smoking up the kitchen so I turned it off


Just as a guess, this is not an inverter microwave, correct?

The offending part is more than likely the big transformer on the unit, plus the fuse.

If it is the inverter type MW oven the you should see a hot looking part on the circuit board that is connected to the magnetron.

In any event, it is time for a new microwave oven.

Burnt food in my microwave and now it's dead.


The magnetron has more than likely failed, "heart of the system" the fact it burned the cookies in 15 seconds is a concern, suggesting magnetron was burning out.

When I turn on microwave oven fuse is burn out right a way. Thank you


Fuses burn for a reason: because the circuit is being overloaded. There could be several causes, first determine what else goes off when the fuse blows. All of the things that go off when the fuse is removed/blown/burnt are on the same circuit. A microwave is a heavy load, somewhere between 750 watts and 2000 watts, depending on the microwave. Remove other heavy loads (items which use lots of power) from the circuit. A 15 amp 120 volt circuit in a residence is good for 1800 watts (or 1440 watts continuously). If you had a 1500 watt microwave and four 100 watt light bulbs on the same circuit, you would be overloading the circuit. With a microwave, it is best to have it on its own circuit with nothing else (if possible). The fuse may also blow or burn in this situation if there is a problem with the microwave.

Fuse keeps burning out when replaced. When the microwave is turned on, the fuse burns out immediately


If it blows as soon as you hit the "Start"pad to cook, it has a shorted high voltage capacitor.

Microwave emerson not turning ON


That makes it sound like a bad high voltage transformer.

Do you detect any burning smell?

Do the windings of the high voltage transformer seem blued or blackened?

They should be copper colored or maybe a little darker due to the varnish.
