**Hi. Do you happen to have a multi electrical meter?
Was the unit being used when this happen?
Was it being used as a timer?
Please check the plug that the microwave plugs into for power. If you have power to the plug go ahead unplug it. What needs to happen next is to remove the grill just above the door. There should be a 2-3 screw on top of the microwave holding the grill. After that is off you will need to remove the control panel. You will see one screw holding that panel, after it is removed you will need to lift up on the panel a little and then tilt it down towards you. After that you will look inside the microwave and at the top you will see a small board with a white or gray ceramic fuse. Remove it and check for continuity to see if it is good. let me know what you find.
Sorry about the delay. I'm sending you a image of the control board the fuse is on. Chances are you might already found it, since its been a couple hours since you posted last. If you did find the fuse and it is bad you will need to replace it.
Before you tried turning it on did everything light up with the new fuse in it? I'm taken it the old fuse was bad?
Have you checked for power where the fuse snaps in?
OK your going to need inspect that board that the fuse connect's to for burn marks or loose solder joints. If you cant find anything there trace back the wires to the cord to see if you can see a bad wire.
Those little plastic connectors have a little tab on it to push in on to remove that control control.
Stop everything. There is another fuse on this thing. I forget this is the Advantium mic. It not a stander microwave.
Your going to to be looking for on that break down #4009 and #1626. Here is the diagram. Its not the greatest. Since You are starting to get close to the the high voltage capacitor your going to be very careful of discharge it . The capacitor is #1438. I will send you video how to discharge the capacitor.
I thought you forgot about me. LOL`
Did you get the link I sent the other day with the break down on where it is?
Sorry no video. You will have to pull the unit down and take it apart.
Do you see a thermo fuse on the magnetron?
Look at thermo fuse #1430 that's on the diagram. check it
