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

    Any unusual noises? Is it louder or quieter than usual?

    These answers will help me judge whether it's in the high voltage
    section (magnetron, transformer, or diode) or the control section
    (door switch or control board relay or connection).

I would suspect you have a shorted high voltage rectifier or a bad magnetron.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

There should also be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

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

Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:

http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html (if it is NOT shorted, it's probably fine)
http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/mag_test.html (continuity can be good even though it is bad!)
http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/xformer.html

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

How to get to stirrer on amana mvh220e microwave oven?


You don't have to do that kind of disassembly to get to the stirrer on this model.

The stirrer is located under the floor plate, which is probably ceramic and certainly fragile.

It's held in place with a rubber gasket, which you should be careful not to tear.

You can use a butter knife or putty knife to gently lift up the front of the floor plate, then it will slide forward & out.

Then you'll see the stirrer.

If the gasket is torn, it should be replaced or sealed with caulk after a thorough degreasing and cleaning.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.
