What causes my microwave to stop working?

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.
