I would suspect you have a bad door switch or door switch mount.

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

This can be caused by slamming the door or by habitually opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

If you think the problem is on the control panel, which we repair these nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

Please write back with your model number if you need further help.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Can it be used without the fan?


If you want to get anymore useful life out of it, stop operating it without the fan.

New Whirlpool MH1160XSQ0 OTR Microwave, never used. (been in storage for 4 years). Lights, fan touchpad seems to be working normally. Gives 3 beeps when start button is pressed and then nothing happen


They have no battery that I'am aware of, the problem is in the keypad control board. The long storage tends to cause issues if the parts have not been energized for a long time, capacitors start to deform overtime and they are the most likely to fail.

Hello Keith Sprague,

Spelling is close and your guess is quite excellent...

Before you ENGAGE in a wholesale repair effort...

You should check your machine is not in DEMO mode...

Demo Mode
Activate to practice using the control without actually turning on
the magnetron. Touch and hold number pad "3" for 3 seconds. The
"DEMO" icon will appear in the display. Repeat to exit Demo Mode

From page 3 (of your operators manual)

Hope this helps

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

If it's still dead, since it's under warranty I would contact Whirlpool customer service for a free fix.
