This answer was rated:

I have a Viking over the stove mounted microwave that will not rotate or heat. This happened before and a technician came to the house and replace a blown fuse. I did not see where the fuse was located when he was here. Could you tell me where to locate the fuse? The Model is VMOR205SS. Serial Nr. 111934. Tear made April 2006.
Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

You might be mistaken slightly on a "fuse" being bad. This microwave has 3 different fuses and if any of them go bad, everything shuts off including the display and all lights and sounds. If the unit is still partially working but the turntable is not turning and the microwave is not heating, it means that one of your 3 door switches has failed. You'll need a multimeter to test the door switches to determine which one is bad. Then just replace the faulty door switch and you should be good to go again. Below is a video of how to access a Whirlpool over the the range microwave which happens to be the same way you access this microwave. So if you watch the video you can see how to get inside the microwave and how to test the door switches to determine which one has failed and needs to be replaced.
