• ** REMEMBER! **The microwave can still shock you even unplugged!!

    ALWAYS discharge the high-voltage capacitor first if you even think your hands will come close to any HIGH VOLTAGE components.

    Jeff mentions this: Anything in the high voltage ( magnetron, capacitor, diode, wires to and from ):
    ...Use a metal ( not the shiny chrome type ) screw driver with a insulated handle to short across ( touch both at the same time ) the terminals of the high voltage capacitor to discharge it.

LG Over range microwave LMV1611SB - we have confirmed the power source is good. We have confirmed the fuse is good. We re-installed the microwave and it worked. Then for no reason it seems all power was no longer was available to the unit (it wasn't being used at the time). I've been reading some blogs for other LG microwaves (specifically the LMV1630ST) where it was suggested it may be the control panel. Could this be the same issue with my model? Thank you.

Can't get anything to come up with that model number, but that be due to the area you're in. Check all the door interlock switches for continuity. If the monitor switch is shorted the fuse will blow.
