Microwave No Power

I have a 2018 Fleetwood Southwind, lost power to the Hotpoint above counter microwave.

Circuit breaker ok, traced wires to under lower drawer under stove, o.k.

Took front power panel off microwave found no fuses. The microwave might plug in behind the unit but would require removal. Cannot find a plug behind unit as it is in the wall. Removed the lower cover, no fuses.

So it seems I have power to the uniit but nothing at the screen, can find no fuses
Any Ideas ?

It might be on a GFCI outlet. Often a GFCI outlet is 'daisy-chained to a second outlet that will go off if the GFCI outlet trips. Check all GFCI outlets and reset them. The outlet might be behind the fridge or in a compartment that also protects the outlet the microwave is plugged into.

Find your inverter if you have one and see if there is a popped breaker on it.

ln the units that I have experience with, the Microwave plug is in the cabinet above or to the side of it. They would route the cord thru a hole to plug it in. Also as someone has already stated, reset your GFCI circuits. YOu may want to also actually trip the Microwave breaker and reset it. Sometimes they trip but do not actually move to the tripped position.

Thanks for the advice. I alway keep thing simple, so I took everyeffort to find the problem before removing the microwave. Supergewl nailed it. I had forgotten that the unit is not plugged in over the toof the microwave as shown in the manual, but in a pan from the cupbard she accidently pulled out he plug.

A big hassle diverted, thanks
