Question about Whirlpool MH1140XMS Microwave Oven
I have a whirlpool, built in the cabinet, above the range, microwave. I heated some water in a glass container (2 Min) when I saw a flash inside the microwave. I checked the breaker, I unplugged the micro. and replugged it in. Nothing. I even ran an extension cord from an outlet I know is hot and nothing.
The Model # is MH6130XEQ .
The date of manufacture shows January 1999.
Do you think this microwave has heated it's last taquito?
should 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.
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.
It may be the fuse, which is located in the upper area behind the control panel.
If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout (TCO) / thermal fuse on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.
(Don't be confused by the base or hood thermostat, which is on the floor of the chassis. It will read normally open).
The fuse and magnetron thermostat can be checked with out taking the oven down from the wall, but if you need to check the oven thermostat, you will need to pull it from the wall.
To help with that, you can download Whirlpool owner's manuals and installation instructions here.
