Experienced an apparent power surge during a thunderstorm.

Experienced an apparent power surge during a thunderstorm. Microwave oven, not in use at the time, was the only appliance affected. Unplugged/replugged power cord but oven would not come back. Is there an internal fuse that could have been affected?

Thank you! There is a small fuse that has likely opened. You will need to remove the oven from the wall and take the outer wrapper off to access it. It is shown as number 1626 in the picture below. Be sure not to touch anything other than the fuse during repair and make sure the oven is unplugged! The fuse you need is available below.
