My whirlpool combo wall oven microwave RMC305PVS01 wont work. The lcd panel says door and there is no light inside the microwave. Do I pull the microwave change bulb and door switch??

I would start with the switch. Might be an adjustment. Microwaves usually have 2 or 3 door switches mounted to an assenbly. Sometimes these need adjusted. Still need to take control panel off to adjust.

the problem with microwaves is there like light bulds,,, fine for years then the just pop off, whatever it is there is very little you yourself can do with it bar check the plug fuse,, if thats ok dont even think of opening it up to have a look inside, you are very likley to just kill yourself
inside that microwave is a big capacitor that holds 1000, of volts and they can and do kill if you tuch the wrong bits of them,
have you ever seen a stun gun work? well that capacitor is its very big brother, only it wont just stun, it will kill you out it worth the risk??? no! so drop it in the shop for repair or better still bump it and get a new one,, and up grade it as well,

Whirlpool Gold Accuwave wont heat

Hi, there are three issues that will cause a no heat situation in a microwave. these issue are a failed Magnetron, busted cut-off fuse and, failed diode.

I recommend checking all these area that are located inside the microwave for faults.

The most common issue will be a failed Magnetron.

The diode and, fuse will be located on the noise filter assembly.

I have the same problem. Everything seems to work except it doesn't heat up food.
I remember last time when it was working. I pressed the start botton before I closed the door. So it didn't start automatically, and I pushed start and it worked(it still heat up the food), but it doesn't work now. Help Please!!!
I have a Whirlpool Gold GH5184XPQ.

Thanks in advance
