Thanks for using this service.

Sorry for the delay I just got on and saw your question. I have the service manual and wiring diagram for your unit. The power goes right to the door switch first. So if that is bad that could very well be the issue. Secondly there is a 3 amp fuse on the power board that could also be blown. If that is bad it will also not display anything. It likely is one of the two. The door switch is very common to go out on the unit. If you need anything else or the manual let me know.

 

Also make sure you try a couple of outlets just to be sure you have power to the unit.

Hi. Thanks. I do have power at that outlet. That's a certainty! I tried to jump The door switch to see. ( black to black white to white). That made no difference. So the new door switch I have coming might be redundant but ill keep
It's s a backup. So ... It might be the fuse you mention and I must try to look inside again and locate it!? Where can I order a replacement if thats what I need?

Thanks for your help so far!

4. Remove the T10 screws (up to 9) securing the power electronic.
5. Remove the power electronic from the appliance.

Sorry I've been tied up with nagging work RELATED stuff.. Ive done all the things you said... got new fuses... new door switch etc put the in im doing the final reassembly tODAY..

Who knew there was so much stuff inside!!?

 

Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.
OK sounds great, yes they are very complicated.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

OK..... Things are not going well! 1 I ordered a new switch and replaced the door switch. 2 I also replaced the 3 amp fuses on the power board. 3 I cleaned the entire inside out (it was a little bit dusty)


 


 


The result!!!??? Still no Power Nothing at all!


 


All the internal connections are in place. There is power to the outlet (115V) What now??

Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.
It sounds like the power board may be bad. If that fuse was blown there is a good chance the board is bad.
