HOW WOULD WE GUESS . TRY IT AND FIND OUT FOR YOURSELF . THAT IS HOW WE ALL LEARN THINGS

Amana Microwave... | Answered on Feb 23, 2019


You can try checking out the installation manual for an idea of how it was installed. It should be sitting on a mounting bracket and not attached to the sheetrock itself. However, you might be pulling on the mounting bracket when you tip it forward. You should have an extra set of hands to help you pull it straight forward and out, instead of tipping it.

The installation manual can be found at https://d1vofmza27mmhi.cloudfront.net/product-pdf/amana-amv1150vaw-installation-instructions.pdf.

Good luck!

The LV control (mains side) fuse is on the control board.
The HV (lethal side) fuse is housed inside a plastic shell, next to the HV capacitor.
For both, the outer shell (microwave oven's cover) needs removal.
BUT:
Mains must be off, preferably about 15 minutes to allow HV capacitor to discharge through it's internal drain resistor.
AND:
There will probably be one or more security tamper-proof screws on the cover, to prevent accidental injury through electrocution.
WHY:
Microwave ovens are the most lethal household appliances to open when untrained hands poke around.
SUGGEST:
Get an experienced tech to check it out.

What makes you believe it's a fuse?

If there is one it will be in the rear of the machine right by the power cable. Sometimes that are a plastic carrier that pulls out sideways or or a screw cap that reveals the fuse. For any internal fuses, you need professional servicing as the case is fitted with security screws due to the dangers of microwave emissions, ultra high voltage and a poisonous core to the magnetron.

You have a serious short circuit, I suggest you call for a service technician

Yes there are fuses inside.
There are lethal voltages within Microwave ovens that can stay charged up for many days. If you do not understand the hazards, get it repaired by a qualified electrician.

That is called the wave guide cover.
Many spares departments will keep them.

Did you have a power failure? Could be an overheat situation. Try unplugging the unit, wait 30 seconds and plug it in again. This resets the unit as long as there isn't a breaker or fuse blown. If it is a power issue, the display should start flashing. Did you get any error codes?
