do you have a volt meter and know how to check continuity to the door switches?
okay well if the control actually responds but this wont start when you hit start one of the door switches is bad ( there are three) its like machine thinks the door is open. I can send you a link that shows you how (video) to test the switches if you can get ahold of a volt meter. would you like that ?
the door swthces are these.
oh okay I thought you said there was power in the machine. what fuses are you refering to the house fuses ?
okay there is an internal fuse in the microwave. its located behind the control panel. you havent check that yet have you ?
okay, now we are getting somewhere, sorry for the confusion. this has a 20 amp ceramic inline fuse behind the control panel. unplug the microwave and open the control panel up. you will see the fuse.
okay you need to shut the power off at the breaker then. there should be a screw behind the grill that goes along the top.
yes, I cant pull up your xact diagrams because this is older but if it has a grill along the top remove it . there should be a screw holding the contrrol panel. remove the screw and then slide the control up and let it hinge out towards you.
yes thats the fuse.it comes right out. it just snaps in
thats up to you. if that doesnt work which I think it will then replacing it may be a better option if you can get the right size to fit. if not a service call shouldnt be more than $80.00 plus parts on average. I think the fuse will fix it though.
