I was repairing a light switch on the same circuit that my microwave is on. After repairing the light switch and turning the circuit breaker back on, I found that my microwave did not work at all. There was no display, and none of the buttons worked. I checked the circuit breakers and the outlet and they were fine. I unplugged it and plugged it back in, and the only thing that happened was that the slide out vent hood came out. Nothing else. Is there a fuse or some type of a reset button on these anywhere? It's like a fuse blew or something like that as a result of turning off/on the power at the circuit breaker. The microwave had worked fine in every way up until that time.
ANSWER Hello Larry. Yes, there should be a fuse in the unit. You will remove the outer cover to access and test the fuse. If it is bad, you will need to replace the fuse in the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
