MAYTAG MMV4205BAS Running but not heating

I have a 5-month-old Maytag MMV4205BAS over range microwave. It's been working fine until I tried to reheat some food this morning - sounds like it's working (no humming - glas turning, etc.) but, when you take the food out? It's ice cold. Needless to say, I'm not very happy...Still under warranty and a tech is coming next week but, what would cause this?? My cheapo countertop unit has lasted me over 10 years.....this one - 5-months....Thanks in advance for any replies!

    ....I put food in the box, I push button, food cooks, family's happy....that's the extent of my knowledge regarding microwaves....So, thanks for the reply!

    Only other things I read here were in regards to the door - IE. maybe it's not latching correctly and that's why the unit isn't heating. Who knew these things were so involved - actually, I think I'm afraid to have it in my kitchen after reading about all the parts - better don a lead radiation shield before I ever cook again :)

    Thanks again - I'll stop back next week with the verdict...

    Well, the tech. came and it's the Magnetron Tube. He's ordering the part and coming back to fix in about two weeks. Guess that's the shelf life on new over-head microwaves these days - barely 5 months. Thanks for your reply!

If the food in the cooking compartment is not heating at all, then you may have one of several components related to microwave energy generation that have failed or became disconnected internally.
Magnetron Tube, HV Capacitor, Filament Transformer or any number of sensors that disable power to the system. The control board could also cause the system to noty function correctly.. You wanted general inputs.. there ya go.. LOL
Not sure I told you anything you didn't already know but you should ask the tech what he did after he gets it going...
Regards,
Rick

The problem is more than likely in the keypad control board, pricing on this part should be checked before going ahead with repairs.

I have a Maytag mmv4205bas that is 2 yrs old and no longer heating. I talked to a friend and her friend has the same microwave same age with the same problem. Could there be a defect for that model? Is it...


I have this same microwave, and I'm having trouble with it shutting off. It use to go back on, but now it doesn't work at all. I tried replacing the two fuses under the panel, but that wasn't the problem.

After some research and calling vendors, I believe the issue is most likely due to a failure of the magnetron tube which supplies the microwaves. Take it to a repair professional to get a cost estimate on fixing.

This model of Maytag seems to have BIG problems! It's either the tube is out, the turner doesn't work, or it just goes dead. Usually it's after 2-4 years of service. I am just going to buy another microwave. Poor quality... Maytag lost a lot of clients with this product!

MICROWAVE WILL NOT HEAT


check the connections on the h.v side because the unit works on 4500 volts and if there are any bad connctions it will not reach its working voltage and will not energize.remove all the connections 1 at a time and tighten all the terminals and try it again.you will not be able to test the components with a digital multimetre as it does not have the range.you need an analoge unit with a 10k scale and a 9 volt battery inside or it will give you falsr readings.teh diode which is thge little black unit with 1 side down to earth should read half way with the laeds on 1 way then when you put it on the opposite side it should not move.the capacitor will make the needle of the multimetre flick up when put onto the terminals both ways.the magnetron should have a short reading on the terminals but with 1 connected to the terminal of the input and 1 to the case it should not read at all,hope this helps regards les
