Question about Maytag Microwave Ovens
The keypad is either dead or sometimes functions, but keeps beeping and asking for timer input. We usually unplug and replug it a number of times and finally it works once or twice and then we'll hear it beep and ask for the timer input. It will continue to beep at randum times asking for this until we unplug it again.
Thanks for your help!!
You have a shorting
membrane keypad. If the oven is coming on by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.
So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and please do not leave it running unattended.
If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.
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.
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.
If you would like to have us do this repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your model number) for more information & help.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
