Question about Smeg FME24X Microwave Oven
The counter and light on the Smeg FME24X come on and timer counts down but the oven isn't coming on. A toy screwdriver was inserted in the top hole on right side door opening and fuse tripped. Any solutions?
The door switches are almost certainly the culprit - probably the upper one. It may also be a loose mount, or even a loose spring in the hook-like devices on the door which activate the switches. There is a center monitor switch whose purpose is to blow open the fuse if the door is open and the upper or lower switch gets activated. That's why the fuse blew when the screwdriver was introduced - you activated the door switch while the monitor switch was on. I've attached a generic picture which gives you the idea. More importantly, at my Web site, I have critical safety information, disassembly tips, and infomration on checking and replacing door switches.
