    If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor. See safety warnings and test help here: http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/cap_test.html If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer. See safety warnings and test help here: http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/xformer.html If it goes dead or blows the breaker (or GFI) when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount. See: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/doorsw.txt There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, & testing. At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes. See: http://www.microwavedisplay.com You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/parts.htm I'd recommend that your bookmark this link to your favorites.
