YesCan I take out and replace the fuse without discharging the high-voltage capacitor?
What fuse do I need to replace it with?
These fuses do wear out but more often that not, something caused the fuse to open. Sheck for a short between the fuse and ground.Is there anything else I need to do other then replace the fuse?
I only read where you replaced one fuse in the last month. Remove the control panel and check the door switches for continuity by opening and closing the door. The latch bracket that holds the three microswitches might be out of adjustment or maybe the screws that hold the latch bracket need tightening. One of the microswitches is called the monitor switch or sometimes called a "deadman" switch. It's designed to keep the microwave from working if the door is open by shorting L1 and N together and blowing the fuse. When you open the door the primary microswitch opens and kills the power to the monitor switch. If the monitor switch closes before the primary switch opens the fuse opens. It looks similar to this. The switches fit on pins and clip into the switch holder. Make sure none of the pins are broken and the screws that hold the switch holder are tightI’ve replaced 3 fuses in past 2 moths.
