    WHIRLPOOL MICROWAVE OVEN GH9184XLQ1 is not heating up displaying F-7 code what does this code mean.

    The
    first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a
    minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

    If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

    I would then have these questions:

    When you hit Start to cook, do the inside light and turntable come on?

    Any unusual noises?

    Is it louder or quieter than usual?

    When does the F7 code occur? About 60 seconds after you plug in the power & set the clock, or some time after you press Start when trying to cook?

    There
    should 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 have that, it may list the trouble codes.

SOURCE: Microwave ahs power but doesn't heat.

The most common causes for a lack of heating are a bad door switch, a loose connection on the magnetron, a bad magnetron, bad connection on the control circuit board, a bad relay on the board, bad high voltage diode, or bad high voltage transformer. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

SOURCE: Panasonic Microwave Oven Stops After 15 seconds - Never Heats

If it stops at 16 seconds and is a sensor model, it probably has a defective humidity sensor.

You can order Panasonic parts from Tritronics.

If you reconsider, you can find an authorized Panasonic servicer here.

SOURCE: Whirlpool MH1150XMQ 1000 Watts Microwave--NO HEAT

About 95% of the time it is the magnatron. If the microwave is under 5 years old that part is often covered under warranty. I would check your manual. If not the p/n is 8206335 and it's about $80 and fairly easy to install. I just looked and the magnatron is covered.

Labor to replace it would be about $125

SOURCE: Microwave turns on & control panel is frozen. F2&PAN error codes

You have a shorting membrane keypad. If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything 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.

On this model, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame which comes with a new keypad.

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame.

That is a simple do-it-yourself job.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number (KHMS155LWH1 without dashes) from the tag on the oven here.

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.

SOURCE: I have Whirlpool Microwave oven Model MH6110XEB-0

with any luck you have just poped the inline fuse,
if you remove the control board you should be able to see the tube fuse up by the fan motor
if not the whole thing will have to come down to reach it

Tip

Error Code "d" - Microwave does not heat


The microwave could be in "Demo Mode" - Check your owners manual.

In Whirlpool/Kenmore models this is indicated by a lower case "d" on the right side of the display panel.

Most/All function except the magnatron (heat) work in demo mode so you can can learn to use the oven without actually cooking food

To clear "demo mode" press the "kitchen timer" pad and hold for 5 seconds until the "d" clears from the display... you may hear 2 beeps.

We have had this microwave for 7 years. Not had any problems until about six months ago when the volume went way down when you push the buttons and timer, but still heated. Then all of a suddon it does...


Remove the cabinet ... check the door safety interlock switches for proper operation. Most of the time, no heat problems can be traced to the oven thinking the door is open. These switches tell the oven if it is open or closed. If they are faulty ... well ... the oven thinks the door is open and will not turn on the heat.

Make sense?

Thanks for your question today.

HI. I have a Whirlpool Microwave (MH6141XKB). It will not reheat the food and makes a louder "humming" sound than normal. Other than that, everything works fine. Please advise. Brent


Brent
The magnatron in your oven has gone out and will need replaced!( This is the device that heats up your food) If everything is working and your food is not getting hot 99.9 percent of the time its the Magnatron or its fuse! The loud humming is also a big clue the MAGNATRON has gone bad!
Please rate this response and help us keep this area free!
Thank You!

Jenn Air Microwave Error Code


Hello Hec1152,
I have found the manufacturer contact information for you, but could not find information about the error code. If everything works fine, but the microwave is not heating your food, then the problem is most likely the magnatron or one of it's components, which sadly to say is the most expensive part to replace. Please feel free to contact the manufacturer via phone or live chat to get more details as to what the error code means.

If you would not mind, could you please rate my help. I would greatly appreciate it.
