It could easily be a bad line fuse and/or line filter. To access you will need to unplug the unit and remove the outside case. Inside the unit, where the A/C power cord comes in, there should be a small circuit card (part #237068) located somewhere with a fuse mounted on it. This is your input line filter board with line fuse. Replace the fuse, first and see if this fixes your problem. This is a 20amp appliance fuse that you can purchase at any hardware store. Make sure you place the cover back on the unit BEFORE you plug it in. It is not safe to have this area of the microwave exposed with power applied. High potentials in the 4,000 volt range are present! If the fuse does not correct your problem, the circuit card runs about $26.00. Good luck and hope this fixes your problem.

Generally, you get something unless the fuse inside is blown. There is generally a fuse inside the unit when you remove the button package. First, make sure that the outlet you have is good. Plug something else into it and see that it works.

SOURCE: my maytag microwave lost power

There is always a fuse inside a microwave.Sometime this has only blown due to a surge,and upon replacing, the microwave will continue working.If it is something worse the fuse will continue to blow.In this case it could very well be the transformer,but there are other possible causes as well.(for example the control board or a short.)

SOURCE: Has no power

If your microwave oven doesn't seem to work at all, check these: Fuses Usually, when your microwave oven doesn't work it all, the internal fuse (thermal fuse) is blown. This fuse protects both you and the oven. When it blows, you need to have a qualified appliance repair technician replace it. Door switch If the fuse isn't the problem, check the door hooks and the door-release button. When these are broken, the door switch doesn't activate, so the oven can't work.
thanks

SOURCE: LG Microwave LMVM2055ST Just stopped working!

It has probably had an overhesat problem and the repair is quite simple. First you must remove the cover. This will require the removal of alot of scres on top, bottom and rear of machine. Once done, looking down at the top of the microwave all the way to the left about half way from the front to the rear you will see a round senso with two black wires going to it. This issimilar to a fuse and when you remove it, you can test it with a continuity testor. Electric should flow through it with no resitance. If it does not, it must nbe replaced. It's about ten bucks.

My mmv1153bab does not heat food but everything else works what should i try


It sounds like your magnatron is defective and need replacing.
Goto : www.partselect.com and put your model # and see how much it cost. If you are handy, replace it but put the machine back together before starting.
The magnatron is protected when covered up

Microwave stopped working and was hot inside.


At just 13 months old I would be inclined to get in touch with Maytag. If you make enough fuss they will repair it under warranty. but just check that the air intake and exhaust are clear of debris first.

Hope this helps

The emerson microwave suddenly stops working,no power supply.


Two microwaves, 3 service companies and 6 service calls later, I think I have the answer. My unit is a MMV1153BAB but I'll bet the problem runs throughout the Maytag line. The units are ship from the factory set up to vent to the interior. If your want to vent outside, the fan in the right, rear, upper coner needs to be repositioned. Tell the service tech to go to servicematters,com and follow the link for technicians and find service pointer K8178715 issued in 2007. My unit has now run 20+ minutes with no problem and no moisture buildup.

Maytag microwave just died.


Take it back to the store and make them do something about them. If they dont then file a complaint with the BBB no reason for you to have to deal with this when it is there problem. It sounds like there is a venting issue and more going on

Timer descends very quickly


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If you still have trouble, since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.
