Question about Whirlpool GH5176XPT microwave Oven
Whirlpool GH5176xpt-0 just stopped heating. Everything else is working. I read a post about a door switch, is this possible?
It may be a door switch or relay or connection on the main board, but if that were the case, it would be quieter than usual because the high voltage section would not be getting power.
But since you say it's not quieter than usual, I would assume the high voltage section is getting power, so one of these components is probably at fault.
There 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.
If you don't find yours, or if you want to look at it without disassembling the oven, you can download it here.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:
(if it's not shorted or burned, it's probably okay)
