This is due to poor air flow, either to a blockage or a problem with the internal cooling fan or hood vent exhaust fan.

Are the grease filters or charcoal filter clogged?

You may want to check your owner's manual for info on checking the filters. Grease filters can be cleaned, but charcoal filters must be replaced about every 6-12 months.

The installation manual will tel you if there's some error in the installation setup.

    Since it's brand new, it would be fully under warranty, so I would contact Maytag to have them fix it free.

I have a maytag built in microwave MMV4205BAW from August 2006. The microwave runs but does not heat and makes a slight buzzing sound. It sounds like the magnetron needs to be replaced. If this is not...


From the description it is the magnetron, it will be expensive for the part alone, and keep in mind shops have different rates making impossible to give exact quotes, but I would estimate parts and labour at least $250.00 or more, if you decide to go with the repair make sure the magnetron is not a aftermarket product it will last about 6 months.

Microwave exaust fan starts on its own


There's a humidity sensor in this microwave oven that turns on the fan automatically if it senses an excess amount of humidity (steam from cooking for example) to possibly protect humidity or moisture from building up inside the unit.

I have a Maytag mmv4205baw Microwave oven. It


the unit that creates the microwaves called the "magnetron" has gone bad, or the circuits powering the magnetron have gone bad. there really isnt a cheap way to fix it, and not a undangerous way to fix it yourself. if your really like the microwave and dont want to part with it, you can try finding a repair shop that will fix microwaves, but they will probably tell you it would be cheaper to buy a new one. sorry

Microwave no longer heats, makes more noise than it did when it was heating. Microwave is a Maytag, model # MMV4205BAW. Thanks.


Sounds like the magnetron has failed. There are some high voltage circuits that feed the magnetron and you can potentially get hurt if you don't know what you are doing. Would recommend you have it serviced by a professional if you want it fixed, otherwise look for a new one since the cost of repair can come close to the price of a new microwave oven.

My fan works on my microwave by it does not draw suction


Actually, the fan in the microwave is only there to cool down the magnetron which cooks the food. It gets very hot over a period of time and the maintains constant temperature across it. Suggest you use an extractor to remove fumes.

Possible door adjustment problem


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.

Or you can return it for replacement.

I would not suggest trying to fix this yourself since it's under warranty.
