Fridgidaire microwave no power
 
I have a
FRIDGIDAIRE MICROWAVE
model#: GLMV168KS4 (S may be a 5)
serial#: PG24201278

I have good electric to my socket but when MICRO is plugged in, I get NOTHING ... is there a reset somewhere or a fuse or is this just dead in the water?

Thanks,

Bill

In the absence of your Owner's Manual why wouldn't you look this appliance up on the Internet and see if it has a Reset of some kind?:)

it has an internal 20 amp fuse

I looked online for the manual and wiring diagram ... the manual has no mention of anything so thank you for the note about the internal fuse.

Since I do not have any diagram to go from, can you give me an idea of how to access the fuse so I can test/replace?

Thanks !!

It probably overheated and blew the fuse. Unplug it, pop the cover off and you should be able to track the power line in.

This is the first time I have ever thought of working on a microwave so pardon my dumb questions, but this thing is mounted to the underside of a cabinet ... there look to be a couple of "cover" spots ... could you point me in the right direction of the one that will have the wiring in it?

Sorry to sound dumb as a stump on this one:huh:

Once I get inside, I will be fine ....

JPM, you have to remove the front cover to get to the two phillip head screws holding it to the bracket, then it will lift and you can take it down. Go to the manufacturer website and you should be able to pull the manual there.

before you get carried away with pulling the microwave down, take off the front vent grill. Look for 1 screw that holds the control panel in, remove the control panel. Now you will probably be able to access the fuse. Replace the fuse, you may get lucky and not have any other problem but usually the fuse blows for a reason.

Good advice ... I will try pulling the vent and look for one or two screws ... have same thought about the fuse but thought to give it a try anyway.

LOVE the REN AND STIMPY ....nice :thumbup:
