Any advice would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
The microwave should have it's own breaker and wiring to the main panel. So my advice is to start as follows:
1. Turn breakers off/on to ensure they got reset.
2. Check the power outlet with a multi-meter and see if you are getting power. If no power pull the outlet loose and check at the wires.
3. If the above doesn't work get a multi-meter and verify that you are getting power to the breaker. You might have to take the panel loose to get to the wires.
2a. If you don't have power coming in start going upstream.
2b. If you don't have power on the output side replace the breaker.
2c. If you have power in and out of the breaker start going downstream.
Watch for fuses and breakers. I've found random ones installed at the weirdest locations. I usually find a way to move them to a more "logical" location.
