Hello from JA
My name is Woody.
I will be glad to assist you today.
I have been servicing ALL Major Brands of Appliances for 35 Years,
and have over 100,000 in home repairs and over 80,000 internet repairs under my belt.

Yes inside the unit is a inline fuse on the L1 hot leg of the electrical system !

It is mounted right behind the console /keypad area.

Do you have a volt-Ohm meter and know how to use it?

How do I replace it?
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

You will need to remove the grill above the microwave console and door .

That then Exposes the screw on the top of the keypad /console are ,it then folds down and the fuse is right there in plain sight.

Most appliance parts dealers want over $6.00 but it should be just a plain ole 15 amp cartridge fuse that you can get 4-5 for that price from a Hardware store.
