Why Did My Microwave Click, Then Die?

Some models of microwave ovens develop a problem where they make a clicking noise then go dead. If you experience this problem, the replacement microwave part may be nothing more complicated than a fuse.

In this particular case, your model may be in need of a replacement in-line fuse. You will need to locate the in-line fuse in your unit using the manual or a schematic of the unit, and replace it. When installing this microwave part, be sure you have it securely in place, otherwise you will be doing the same repair all over again soon. These in-line fuses sell for under five dollars, so you won't have to worry about breaking the bank to get the replacement microwave parts you need.
