Amana Microwave Ovens - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
Where is the fuse in an amana rcs10ts microwave and how do i get to it?
The LV control (mains side) fuse is on the control board.
The HV (lethal side) fuse is housed inside a plastic shell, next to the HV capacitor.
For both, the outer shell (microwave oven's cover) needs removal.
Mains must be off, preferably about 15 minutes to allow HV capacitor to discharge through it's internal drain resistor.
There will probably be one or more security tamper-proof screws on the cover, to prevent accidental injury through electrocution.
Microwave ovens are the most lethal household appliances to open when untrained hands poke around.

We have an Amana AMC6138AAS
Did you have a power failure? Could be an overheat situation. Try unplugging the unit, wait 30 seconds and plug it in again. This resets the unit as long as there isn't a breaker or fuse blown. If it is a power issue, the display should start flashing. Did you get any error codes?
