This is what i think: There are two interlock switches in most micro's. Ones for the fan and ones for the magnatron and the transformer. The one for the fan can also control a lite. These micro switchs have a "n"ormally "o"pen position and when they are switched the normally open side closes there for turning on the cuircuit board that then switches on the fan,transformer ect. ect. Two test these switches simply look at the switch and you will see a "c." by one of the connections, That stands for common. Put one end of the ohm meter there. Next you will see "n.o." that stands for normally open so put the other end of the meter there and you should not get any reading. Next push the lever down and then the meter will give you a dirct short reading and should have no resistance at all and if it does measure even a few ohms that switch should be repalce as Ive seen these faulty switchs break down when current is on them and causes all kinds of intemittant connectins. Now with the other connction on the switch if there is one will have a "n.c." by it and that stands for normally closed. With the meter still on the 'c' connection put the meter on the nc without pushing on the switch. It should read a direct short also with no resistance. Now while holding on both same connections push down on the switch and it should not show anything as its wide open with no measurement at all. If it dosent do this then the switch is bad. Now almost every microwave made, there is a wiring diagram inside the outer cover. If its not there you can order one from the company but most micro's are almost all wired the same.

Sure man NO Problem. There are two interlock switches in most micro's. Ones for the fan and ones for the magnatron and the transformer. The one for the fan can also control a lite. These micro switchs have a "n"ormally "o"pen position and when they are switched the normally open side closes there for turning on the cuircuit board that then switches on the fan,transformer ect. ect.

How do I find the fuses in Microwave

Mainly there are three/four fuses in Microwaves depend to maker.
First one to be checked it is on plug about 13A in cable out side microwave
Second one for power supply usually comes 10A located in terminal board of cable supply in side microwave if you follow the cable.
Third fuse i think about 5A for high voltage it located usually on wire connected between transformer and capacitor.
Fourth some Microwave have third one on the control board located behind switch panel.

now.

if the second fuse is blowing immediately after starting microwave that usually mean one or more of the following need to be replaced

1- diode
2- HV. capacitor
3- magnatiron

Which only can replaced by skill technicians

THANK YOU.

In that case the outlet your using is pushing out too much electricity. Try calling your local electric company for help or a professional electric repair man.
