    When you hit Start to
    cook, do the inside light and turntable come on?




    Any unusual noises? Is
    it louder or quieter than usual?




    Any error codes on the display?

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.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number 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)

I have a Whirlpool Microwave! It kept saying open/close door. Than everything went out! Nothing works! Is there a fuse or reset button?


Please post the model number of the microwave for more detailed assistance. Sounds like a fuse in the microwave shorted out. Most likely caused by a bad door switch. Recommend replacing all door switches that are there and then replace fuse.

Change light bulb microwave


If your owner's manual doesn't cover it, then you will have to do some disassembly, and may have to remove the oven from the wall, depending on the model number, which you did not mention.

But since you posted this is the Whirlpool microwave section, I'll assume that's it.

You can download Whirlpool owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

MH1160 Whirlpool Microwave Stopped Heating


Are you getting 110VAC on the primary leads of the high voltage transformer when you press "Start" to begin cooking?

If not, yhen it may simply be a bad cook relay (I do board repair) or a bad bottom or inside top door switch. See http://www.microwavecontrol.com/doorsw.htm

The relay for the lights is not working. No board level repairs. You will have to replace the control board to get this feature back.

Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part such as high-voltage rectifier diode

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and
replacement, and disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
