What causes my microwave to stop working?

by Manage My Life Last activity date:

We were cooking on the range and went to use the microwave only to find that it was completely dead. The circuit breaker was fine. I unplugged it waited 30sec. and plugged it back in with no results.

What causes my microwave to stop working?

General Information

: There is a fuse that if open will not allow the microwave to work or even have a display.

The fuse can be changed but microwaves are not good do-it-yourself projects

.

To change the fuse you must remove the cabinet and this is something I do not recommend you do

.

Microwaves are inherently dangerous to service

.

Internal capacitors can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is unplugged

.

A microwave radiation leakage test must be performed on the unit following any repair

.

Without the model number I'm unable to provide you with specific information. Please resubmit your question with the full model number included.

I would strongly recommend to schedule service at 1-800-469-4663 to have an expert technician diagnose your microwave.
