Location of 15 amp microwave door fuse

Where is the 15 amp microwave door fuse located? The 20a buss fuse is easy to find in the top section behind the control panel, but everything else is harder to open and I do not want to take off covers unless they are the right ones. How to get at the 15A?

I believe the only way of gaining access to the door latch assembly is by removing the cover. You can use needle nose pliers to grip the sides of the screws to slowly turn them out. You might want to visit this web site enter your model number then scroll down until you see an exploded view of your model. Click to enlarge the diagram of your model exposing the latch assembly. I hope this is of help to you. If you found any of these suggestions helpful, please rate my solution. D. Lange

Check your plug and change the fuse there also.

You might need to rechange the 20 amp 250v fuse behind the control panel again due to the recent spark.

If none of this works then i'm afraid a certified technician needs to check the power packs and boards

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Check this image for your Microwave parts, part#25 and part#29 are two thermal fuse. If both of them are fine then it is the electronic control that is bad and needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Where are the fuses located


Fuses can be located behind the microwave door or behind a panel either on the interior wall or an exterior panel. Often the fuse will be behind a panel located under the louver vents on top of the microwave.

My ge microwave model jes1384sf stopped working and sure that the power is going to the microwave, But clock, timer and contol panel etc. nothing turns on. Is there anything can be done to find out what...

You have a power fuse inside of the panel that supplies AC power to the panel as well as the klystron tube. This is generally a slow blow 15 amp Buss fuse. Since these fuses deteriorate over time and they are sized to just hold the requested amps (15) to prevent a possible fire. You will have to take the Panel apart and find the fuse, but be sure you flip the breakers as the panel has a High Voltage power section with large capacitors that can produce a nasty shock. Before touching any thing with the breaker power off, short the capacitors to ground to discharge them, then pull and replace the Buss fuse.

It was working normally and then it sound like pop and completly turn off, no light , nothing, does it has a fuse ????

Microwaves that I have worked on had an inside fuse, commonly a buss 15 amp that protects the microwave high voltage system. You have to take the front panel apart to find it. Be careful that you turn of the power, pull the cord and be sure that you discharge any capacitors before you work on any parts. However, the fuse should be where the 110 v line enters the high voltage section.

I have power to the outlet feeding my Whirlpool Gold Model number TRR3811002 but nothing at the unit? are there internal fuses I can check?

Yes, there is a fuse that can trip. It is typically located behind the control panel, it is a ceramic fuse that is 15 or 20 amp.

For some reason I am not pulling up your model number, can you verify that it is correct from the tag just inside the door and I might be able to better direct you to the location.

You would have to remove the top cover and check to see if the main fuse is blown. Usually a 20 amp slo-blow. There are thermal cut out devices, they will reset when the unit cools, so plug it in the next day and see if the clock and power is back up. good luck, Dale

No display on microwave touchpad for ge Model JKP62G

The GE JKP62G Microwave / Oven combination has an internal fuse behind the control panel for the microwave. The oven will operate but the microwave will be totally dead (no light, no clock). Turn off the breaker for the oven at the fuse box (30 Amp double breaker). In order to replace the fuse you will have to open the door to the microwave, remove the two screws (Torx) from the front control panel (located on the left edge of the control panel), wiggle the panel to the left (there are two metal tabs that stick into the metal frame of the microwave on the right of the panel) and then tilt the panel down from the top. There is a metal bracket that holds the control panel to the microwave at the bottom (don't remove it). Look towards the top of the microwave inside the area behind the control panel and you will see a 15 Amp screw in fuse. Replace the fuse and that should fix your problem.

Fuse location

Check for Manufacturer specific schematic
If you do not know what a schematic is, have proper tools, DVM and knowledge, please stop repair attempt.

Most microwave MAIN fuses I have seen are the BUSS type which are typically clipped into a fuse holder. Other BUSS fuses may be internal to the power supply or in a line fuse holder (Black Plastic)

Check fuse. Remove 3 screws from the plastic grill located at along the top front of the unit. Remove the phillips head screw above the control panel. Slide up and pull out to partially remove control panel. You will see a white fuse. Replacement is CD3G 125v 20amp or BUSS ABC 20 or Little Fuse 314020 at 250v 20a. Radio shack caries the ABC.
