Microwave No Start
« on: April 04, 2014, 09:10:03 AM »
Working on a Amana Microwave and I am in way over my head. Model# AMV6167BDS and it will do nothing,no lights , nothing. Took the cover off and checked all the thermal fuses , regular fuse shows continuity. Can it still be bad? What else can I look for as I am out of my league here. HELP PLEASE!!! control board or what.... Thanks for ANY HELP!!!! :(

Is there power at the outlet?
Is there power to the control board?

Post the diagram here if you can. Just on my phone now on the road so it harder for me to look it up right now.
