Question about Panasonic NN-S960WA Microwave Oven
The fuse is usually a 250V 15 or 20 AMP and can be found at any hardware store. As for those screws...those are special tamper proof screws made to keep the average consumer out of dangerous appliances. There's about 4000 volts inside a microwave oven when it is energized. That's why the manufacturers don't want the average Joe tampering with it. You can, however, buy the tool required to get inside the unit for a reasonable price. I think it's less than $30 and I know Craftsman makes it. The line fuse is located on or near the input line filter board. Just follow the input power cord and you will find it. Just keep in mind, that if the fuse is blown, it usually blows for a reason. You may have other problems. Let me know if this helps you.

Tips for a great answer:
Dead appliance, power on wall outlet.
SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!
this only if you are competent.
your appliance has absolutely no functions at all, remove it from the
mains supply, remove the case and see where the mains lead goes in to
the appliance and follow the cable until you find the main fuse.
ONLY USE THE SAME TYPE AND RATING OF FUSE TO REPLACE IT.
The usual cause of this fuse failure is the door switches are contaminated or sticking. Check the door switches before putting power back on to the appliance.
Hope this helps.
