Microwave blowup

  1. Sep 30, 2004 #1
    Hi. A mate of mine had a gemsquash (A type of pumpkin) blow up inside his microwave and now it won't work. I have heard that troubleshooting for microwaves is quite straightforward. Does anyone have advise on what to look for?

    Well, start by unplugging the microwave and waiting a little while.

    The first thing I would look for is blown fuses and physical damage or shorts caused by bits-o-pumkin.
