That means that either the fan assembly must be replaced, otr there is a wiring problem.

You find assembly diagrams and parts here.

    Enter model number here to find assembly diagrams and parts.

    On parts search fan, then the oven must be taken apart, and wiring to the fan and connection from control assembly tested with a multimeter.

    If the wirings are ok, test the fan motor, and eventually replace the fan assembly.

    If the fan motor works, and wirings are OK (there is continuity) then test the control assembly and eventually replace it.

My microwave oven model 721.85033111 vent fan stays on


You probably have a bad fan thermostat. This thermostat is supposed to turn on the vent fan if the microwave oven gets too hot (caused by cooking too much or having too many burners turned on on the range beneath the microwave oven). It should shut off in about 15 minutes after your turn off the range burners. But if it comes on for no reason, or won't turn off, then You probably have a bad fan thermostat.

Mmv5165bas vent fan will not stop running


Check to see if there's a relay providing power to the fan. If there is, the contacts might be sticking in the closed position. Assuming that this is an over-the-range unit, disconnecting the vent fan completely might not be a good idea as heat/steam from foods cooking on the range would more likely damage the microwave.

Maytag over range rattling and vibrating noise


Make sure you tighten all the attachment screws that may have loosened during long term usage. Make sure the fan is running properly and not causing undue vibrations. Use WD 40 on the fan.

It could be that the fan button is sticking or a contact has welded itself closed therefore its getting power all the time.

I dont have a vent for above range microwave oven


It doesn't have to vent outside. These are designed to recirculate the filtered air back into the room. If you cook without a range hood now it will work fine for you.

No door lights, vent fan or microwave


That's what I thought.

We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week.

At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full 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.

Exhaust fan


The fan pulls from the range top and either out those vents on top unless there is a vent in your upper cupboard. Then it is vented outside. Hope this helps.
