Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. I will be helping you with your question today.

Inside the microwave is a 20 amp fuse the call the turbo fuse. You will need to replace the turbo fuse. This requires you to remove the microwave so you can remove the metal wrapper. The fuse is not accessible from the front.

What would cause this turbo fuse to blow? What does it do? Thanks

I have replaced a couple of them that have bown for no reason. To be honest I don't really know what it does.
