Question about Maytag MMV1153A Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Microwave shuts down after cooking three or four minutes

I recently purchased and installed the MMV1153BAW microwave. After cooking for about four minutes, it shuts down completely. It has never cooked for more than four minutes without shutting down. After ten or fifteen minutes it can usually be turned on again.

    I am having this same problem, but mine  was purchased 2 yrs ago and was recently installed (in March to be exact).  What should or can I do to fix this problem?

    Whenever I cook something that produces steam, the thing kicks out. Sometimes, I can avert it by running the vent fan on high during cooking, then leaving it on afterwards with the door open. Why should anyone have to do this?

    Can the magnetron be replaced cheaper than purchasing a new microwave?

Your magnetron is overheating and tripping the thermostat, which interrupts power until it cools.

Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

No... you are not in a microwave induced time warp...
Your microwave oven needs a "reboot". The same thing happened to me.
Unplug your microwave oven, wait about a minute (more or less), plug it back in. Try setting/running your kitchen timer, boil water, etc. Your timer software on the microwave should be reset.

First: never attempt heating pure water in a microwave, that is dangerous.

Ensure the oven is not set to the minimum power, otherwise the heating will be minimal.

Try heating some food at maximum power for two or three minutes, if it does not heat, take it back to the shop.

Magic chef over the oven microwave shuts off.


Is not normal for a microwave to shutdown after 4 minutes of operation.
From the info you are providing, It looks like the magnetron might be overheating causing the thermal fuse to shut it down until it cools down. There may also be a loose connection in one of the switches or a cold solder joint in the low voltage power supply.
I would suggest to check and make sure that the fans are functional, If always did; it could be that there isn't much air circulation where the appliance was installed.

Over the range MV Oven shuts down from heat


it is triggering the overtemp switch. try to check the vent outlet, it could be clogged with dirt. or the cooling fan of the magnetron is no longer running. could be stuck up because of not being used for a long time.

Comes on when you open door, and now it finally quit working


I think you've put up with enough hassle from this unit and should get another one. Intermittant flakey problems are hard (read expensive) to fix.
