Panasonic microwave oven NN-5262SF. Totally dead after electrical storm. Plugged into live outlet. Even the light and fan dead. Believe a fuse in the oven but don't know where it is located. Can you help me find it?

    I took the microwave oven off the wall, checked out the back, and could not find any port to open where I could access a fuse. The only way to open it up would be to remove the entire sheet metal cover which surrounds the back panel. This appeared to be a huge task (as opposed to removing a port cover) and then I still had to locate a replacement fuse somewhere. I chose to replace the oven with a new one.

    The solution I was given appears to be a generic one.

    I was not pleased with the advice as it was not specific to my model.

    I don't want to accept this solution.

Hi pdylhoff,

Try to replace the fuse using the instructions below. Replacing the fuse will determine if it's the cause of the problem.

1. Unplug your microwave. Remove the screws from the back panel. Take off the back panel.

2. Find the fuse. It should be near where the electrical cord comes into the microwave. The fuse is a small white bar with metal caps on either end.

3. Carefully remove the fuse. Avoid touching the transformer or other parts inside the microwave.

4. Take the old fuse into the store to find the exact match. You may also use the owners manual to find out what kind of fuse is used.

5. Replacing the fuse. Please put the cover back on and see if your microwave works. If it does, replace the screws. If it does not, try a different fuse. If the microwave still does not turn on, you may have to have it replaced by an authorized repairman.

Reminder: Please do not touch the transformer on the inside of the microwave. It can discharge enough electricity to cause harm or even death.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Sounds like a blown fuse. Carefully remove the cover, and the fuse in directly behind the power cord on the top. Radioshack sells 15A ceramic replacements.

Microwave oven


Check the wall AC outlet by using a meter or another electrical appliance such as a table lamp. If no power there replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker.

Does your microwave light up when you open the door?

If not, it could be a bad power cord, on/off switch AC cord or fuse.

Check these first.

If you cannot solve the problem, you'll probably need service.

Hope this helped.
