My microwave went black and i replaced the 20 amp fuse.

Customer Question

John, My microwave went black and i replaced the 20 amp fuse. Everything seems to be in order but when I turn it on it will only run for about one second no matter what i set the time for.
JA: What's the microwave's make and model? And can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: Whirlpool Mod No. WMH3205XVS - 2
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: I have a Whirlpool microwave Mod No. WMH3205XVS - 2 that is approximately four years old. It went completely dark and when I replaced the 20 amp fuse. all systems came back open except the unit will only run for about one second regardless of how much time I program it to run; same thong happens when I try to use any of the program keys like plate and etc.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: I don't know of anything else.
