fuse blows with new capacitor and diode, SOS
the oven runs about 2 seconds, then makes strange sound and blows the fuse.
I tried new capacitor and diode. no change fuse still blows. capacitor was okay but diode was out of spec before replaced.
I happen to disconnect monitor switch. no change. fuse still blows
I disconnected megatron. no change. fuse still blows. megatron seems okay.
there is discolorazation on the connector to monitor switch. I am not sure if that means anything but it seems to work.
I am beginning to think i should replace switches and see..if it does not work, i might just give up to fix this microwave. I am suspecting transformer. I can’t find the spec to test transformer. Is there any specific resistence I should be getting. Also is there any generic part I can purchase?…OEM seems expensive.
due to high price of trim kit, i really wanted to fix this microwave.
it’s GE peb2060sm1ss, 9 years old.
