Fuses are rated in amps. As long as the amps match you should be fine.

THERMAL fuse? Cavity Thermal Cut Out (TCO)? Then match temp as you stated...

uh... it's the same fuse. The point being, it doesn't matter what the vendor, or even you, call it.

I thought so too, but I'm a noob to microwaves :)
All those parts Durham listed are the same parts. Many parts go by different names.

Take it out and put it in the freezer for a minute.  Sometimes they need to get a little cooler than room temp.  If not then use one of the ones Durham suggested.  It's not that critical if they very a little.

I think I figured out why Wahoo blew a fuse.. and I aint talking microwave.

1) he was not able to find the part number since the part number he provided is from Repairclinic's proprietary part numbering system. It does not translate anywhere else.

2) cross referencing the part number to the manufacturer's part number I was able to find at least three sources that had them in stock, including Repair Clinic. Each of these were provided as a courtesy and to show it was readily available

3) mentioning what each vendor calls this one part was to show the name doesn't matter, it's the part number that counts. And of all things, one of the vendors called it a "thermoprotector"... Ive heard it called many things before but they just added another name to the list. I found that funny. OP must have mistakenly thought I was sarcastically throwing out different parts at him , when all I was doing was being helpful.

This is the only thing I can figure, but then again I don't get out much, ya know. lol

Anyhow Wahoo, I apologize for the misunderstanding (my pappy always told me to apologize.. me: "but dad I did nothing wrong"
Dad: " Boy, shut the hell up and just do like I say")

sorry Durham  for being out of line it has been a long day. mainly my patients have wore thin because i have looked everywhere i can find and no one carries hamilton beach parts and none of those stores that claim to have parts for everything can tell me what is comparable. the part i mentioned is just the only thing that i can find that looks! like what i need.  once again sorry for "blowing my fuse"

No problem, we live in that world and understand how frustrating it can be. We use humor to make it tolerable but never at the expense of someone legitimately seeking help. At least not intentionally.

btw did you call Hamilton Beach?

"If you cannot find the replacement part or accessory you need in this area, please call our Consumer Affairs call center toll free at 1-800-851-8900. Our knowledgeable personnel have access to a wide range of Hamilton Beach parts and accessories and are always happy to assist you."

If so, what did they say? I'm really curious about their "knowledgeable personnel" claim. That would be a first. lol

Fuses tend to not be resettable.  Hence why they throw the name fuse.  But then again I've seen thermostats be called fuses also... but whatda I know :-)
