How can I locate the part holding the fuse? The device doesn't turn on i think is the fuse, but I don't know where the fuse box is located in the device.
For model number MH1170XSS2
Hi Bob, Thank you for your question. Make sure to unplug your appliance. To get to your fuse, you will have to remove your grille from above your door and you will have to unscrew and remove your control panel. There is a small metal vent on the top right hand side of your appliance, your fuse is located in there. Be very careful. If you do not release the charge from your capacitor, you may get electrocuted. You can release the charge with a screw driver with an insulated handle. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Control panel, clock, light, turntable all work, but unit does not heat. Does the fuse control all power to all parts? In other words, could my problem be simply the fuse even though the control panel, etc. Still work or do I have a bigger problem? Thanks.
For model number GH6178XPQ0
Hi Jay, Thank you for the question. Normally if the appliance seems to be working as normal other then the heat the fuse will be fine. Sounds like you need to replace the Magnetron, This part is used to generate microwave energy/heat. Hope this helps!

Can you purchase any 20 amp fuse for microwaves
For model number MH1170XSB5
Hi Patricia, Thank you for your question. No, it is always best to purchase the fuse that is listed under the microwave's model number to insure it runs correctly. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

When I push start, the microwave blinks off, can this be the fuse?
For model number MH1170XSB5
Hi Patricia, Thank you for the question.If the fuse was blown the appliance would not turn on at all. If the appliance has power but shuts off when you hit start you may have an issue with the Electric Control Board,PartSelect Number PS11750128. Hope this helps!

Microwave wont start i entered time to cook and it changes the screen to "door"
For model number WBH31017FB-0
Hello Dixie, thank you for your question. The door switches have probably failed, which is resulting in the control board thinking the door is open when its not. We would recommend replacing the door switches part number Door Switch Number: PS2361111, Door Switch Number: PS2361113 and Door Switch - 3 Terminal Number: PS10057151. I hope this helps!

2 weeks ago I replaced the fuse because the only thing working was the time on the front panel. Microwave was working great until yesterday when I came home and noticed that the light was on inside, but the door was shut. As soon as I opened the door, it tripped the breaker. Any ideas?
For model number WMH53520AE0
Hi Matt, Thank you for your question. If your microwave is blowing the fuses, the issue may be with the microwave door switches. If the switches are malfunctioning of if the door is misaligned, this can cause the breaker to trip. This may also be caused by a short in the controller near the line cord that feeds power into the microwave unit. The cooling fan motor in your microwave may have also failed and this would cause the fuse to blow. You will need to inspect the parts to verify what is causing the issue. Also, make sure the microwave has its own dedicated outlet. If there are too many appliances plugged into the same circuit, the breaker will trip. We hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day.

The light went out and when i remover the bulb it exploded. Put new bulb in but light does not work. Is there a fuse that controls the light if so where is it located? Every thing else works fine.
For model number WMH31017AB-4
Hi Bill, Thank you for your inquiry. Where the bulb is not coming on you may need to replace the socket it goes into as well as the wiring connected to it and its power source. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Everything works but it does not heat up...........it is about 3 years old
For model number UMV1160CS
Hi Herb, Thank you for your question. There are a couple of parts that could cause that issue. I would suggest you testing your capacitor, fuse, diode, and your door switches. Be careful when doing any repairs on your microwave, you have to safely discharge your capacitor so that is does not electrocute you. After you have done that you should be able to test the parts with a multi meter to see what has malfunctioned. Good luck with your repair.

No power to microwave
For model number GMH3204XVS1
Hi Jason, Thank you for the question. If there is no power going to the microwave, I suggest testing the outlet it is plugged into or checking the power cord. If there is power going to the appliance but it will not power on, I suggest replacing the fuse. Hope this helps!
