Whirlpool Microwave Hood Combination Model YMH1141XM

How do I change the fuse. The microwave fan and light work, though it blows when trying to heat food. Have reset the breaker several times.

If I understand what you are saying, the breaker on your main electric panel kicks off when you turn on the microwave. That is not a fuse problem in the micro. There is a short somewhere which is tripping the breaker when you try to turn the micro on.

Is it on a dedicated 20 amp circuit?

If you swapped out a normal vent hood for a microwave combo, chances are the power supply is not capable of supporting new microwave.
I know Canada has different standards, but there's no way around this. The microwave requires a dedicated circuit, it uses a lot of power and the M/W Convection Combos use even more.
