Message for Chad

Hi Chad,

Thank you for the reply. Can you please walk me through troubleshooting on the electrical

We have been having problems with our Whirlpool Model MH6150XMS. If it is in use for 5 minutes or more, it would not heat anylonger. It comes on and seems to be working, but not heating. I would have to unplug for a minute and plug back in to get it to work. This was for about three months. Now it does not heat at all. It comes on as if it is working properly, but does not heat.

Hi. Your problem is most likely with the magnetron. I am guessing that it is going to need to be replaced. This is almost always the problem. Here is a link on how to test it. http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/mag_test.html

Be sure and do both tests. You will need an Ohm meter (a multi tester will have an setting for testing resistance).

Just please use caution and discharge the capacitors!!! Working on ANY microwave poses a risk for shock if caution is not used.
