Question about Samsung MW5351G Microwave Oven
We recently trimmed branches from our tree outside, one of the branches fell on the power line. when i came inside, the microwave did not work anymore.(power from the outlet but nothing on the microwave, nothing at all). I tested to see if there is power beyond the fuse with a meter and there is. could the fuse still be bad? could a power surge ruin the micro without blowing the fuse? Thanks in advance. scott
Sounds like you got a surge which damaged the control panel. This is the most likely thing. We regularly repair these control panels nationwide for $32.50. A fuse is designed protect against excessive current. But if you have excessive voltage (a surge or spike), it can be so fast that it gets past the fuse and damages the control panel without actually blowing it. While the panel does have surge protection to keep that surge from actually destroying the control panel, the panel is damaged and will have to be repaired. If any power line connections were broken or are suspect, I hope you have contacted the power company. Either way, I would test any affected outlets to be sure the neutral and ground are present so the voltage output is within the proper range.
