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.

Where is the fuse on Panasonic NN-S252

You may have to remove the cover on the microwave to find a fuse. It may not be either in a fuse holder or soldered into a the circuit board. be sure it is not plug up when you check.
if you find it be sure and replace with the fuse with same current rating.

There is no power coming into my microwave which is a panasonic nn-L531WF model. I think it's the fuse. How can i change the fuse?

Dead appliance, power on wall outlet.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!

Attempt this only if you are competent.

If 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.

NN-T964SF 1250 Watts Microwave Oven: my microwave went dead and wouldn't turn on at all...

Sounds like a blown fuse. Carefully remove the cover, and the fuse in directly behind the power cord on the top. Radioshack sells 15A ceramic replacements.

My Panasonic nn-s262 fan and light not working. All other functions are operational. Is there a fuse in the microwave that needs replacement?

Hello, you will need to take the cover off the microwave and look for a fuse internally which should be mounted onto a pcb or electronic board.

NOTE: Be very careful if the microwave is stainless steel as they are very sharp.

Panasonic NN-S254B How fried is it?

There is an internal fuse, so check that first. If the fuse checks ok, definitely buy a new microwave - losing a neutral usually damages the main circuit board. Given the cost of the board and the distance involved, it just wouldn't pay to chase the parts down

Microwave

It's usually located on the floor of the oven behind the control panel, or with the door switches. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk Feel free to contact me directly if you have further questions.
