The base thermal fuse is located directly be-
hind the control panel. It is a normally-open
fuse that, when closed, activates the blower
motor at a low speed.
There are three thermal fuses in the OTR
Microwave Oven. They are: the magnetron
thermal fuse, the cavity thermal fuse, and the
base thermal fuse. The magnetron and cavity
thermal fuses are located inside the high-
voltage section of the oven. These two ther-
mal fuses are normally-closed, and will open
at a set temperature to disable the oven. Both
of these fuses are resettable.
