Question about Maytag MMV4205 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Maytag Over the Range Microwave

Our microwave started acting funny this morning. First it died this morning, after my husband shut the door. By died, I mean that we thought it had come unplugged. The display was dark, none of the kepyapd feature would work, and the light was off when we opened the door. Miraculously, after a few minutes of playing with the keypad, it came back on. Later today, I had something cooking in there, and after running for about 45 seconds, it died again. We unplugged it and plugged it back in and it was OK. Tonight we tested it by putting in a bowl of water. It worked until my husband opened the door. Then it died again, and even unplugging it didn't help. About 1/2 hour later we tried plugging it in again and it worked. Any idea what's up with this crazy thing? Its only about six months old.

Assuming the entire power line from the breaker to the microwave cord is okay, it's almost certainly a bad connection on the circuit board of the control panel assembly. For reference, we repair these from all over the country for $32.50 postpaid.

Fridgidaire microwave won't shut off


Good Morning friend, thank you for your post!

I see that you are having difficulties with your Frigidaire microwave not shutting off. This could be a possible issue with your control panel or door switch. I would recommend performing a reset on your microwave and that can help clear out any potential miscommunications. To perform a reset you can flip the household circuit breaker off for roughly ten minutes. If that does not help resolve your issue you may need to seek assistance from a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. Hope this is helpful. -Matt

Maytag microwave model mmv1153baw light won't shut off and won't start


Hi,

Either the latch in door (spring related) is not in the correct location or you have a door switch issue and its not expensive to fix if you husband is handy. Part number you can use is 28QBP0495 or the factory one 3405-001034 (more expensive). This issue is common and these switches are located inside the control panel on the left side, the switch you seek is the lowest one in the bracket of three. Good Luck and I hope this helps.

You should first be sure your filters are clean and that your ductwork is clear.

See this link for a bulletin that may address your problem.

Otherwise, see this link in case you have a sticky door switch or relay.

You would need a new "door latch". It's a pretty easy do it yourself job.

You can look it up and find helpful exploded views by entering model number (as FMT118E1W0) at the Pros' site here.

You have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo).

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch mount, which are pretty simple problems to fix.

See our file on door switches 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.
