okay well this has an internal in line fuse, its # XXXXX on this diagram. and it may have blown, if its bad you can go to lowes and pick up another one to replace it. if its good then the smart board is blown and thats more than a new microwave. hopefully its just the fuse. hope this helps. thanks Bryan
