Question about Maytag Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I have a Maytag MMV5000BAB. I am having issues with the numbers and timers not operating. I have to continually push until it finally registers what is needed. It is not just one number, but the entire area. My inlaws have the same one and are having the same issue. Is there a common problem with them? Is there a fix?

You have a failed keypad.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

If you would like to have us do this for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

How do you access the fuse in a Maytag Model#MMV5000BAB


The fuse is inside. You have to remove the outer cabinet to get to it but be aware that dangerous, possibly fatal, voltages lurk inside, even with power disconnected.

My microwave has stopped working. Everything functions properly, including the light when the door is open, and the timer countdown begins when I press start, but the actual unit will not turn on...


Sounds like a bad magnatron (the part that emits microwave energy) or maybe just a bad door switch. If the door switch is bad it won't let the unit come on.

Timer button not working as it should


The only way to fix the problem is to replace the timer mechanism, the hard part is finding one, and maybe on the pricey side. Try www.ebay.com type make and model of microwave oven, and scroll through the list.

I have maytag advance cooking system(electric) and the oven will not work.The timer to set the oven and the time is not lighting up but the stove is working.any sugestion


try resetting the clock. If it is digital, push the clock button and then the number buttons untill you have the proper time displayed...then push the clock button again. If your clock and timer are manual, try pushing in the clock lever and turning it 1/4 turn. If this works it would indicate that your timer has a start and finish time and that the oven is not working because the clock has rotated around to the finish time.

Maytag over the top microwave keypad some keys are dead


You have a failing membrane keypad.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open.

NOTE: FixYa's Web site is currently not notifying us when replies to our Clarification Requests are posted.

So please reply back directly to me with your brand and full model number from the tag in or on the unit for more help or free do-it-yourself tips or an estimate if required.

Maytag microwave just died.


Take it back to the store and make them do something about them. If they dont then file a complaint with the BBB no reason for you to have to deal with this when it is there problem. It sounds like there is a venting issue and more going on

Keypad on our microwave is malfunctioning


You have a shorting membrane keypad. If the oven is coming on by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and please do not leave it running unattended.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

If you would like to have us do this repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your model number) for more information & help.

Maytag Microwave Power Outage - Model MMV5000BAB


Found this under GE instead of Maytag, but can answer for you here.

It may be the internal fuse, but more likely it is the thermostat on the magnetron.

Maytag Microwave Power Outage - Model MMV5000BAB


It's almost certain that your magnetron has failed and/or thermostat which is mounted on it. Fist, unplug the oven from the pwer. Then open the door and remove the stirrer cover in the ceiling of the oven. Look for any dark brown burns, charred spots, or "rusty" looking areas. This would indicate that the waveguide has burned, which means the microwave needs to be disposed of. If it passes that test, I'd say the magnetron and/or thermostat area bad.
