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.

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.

INSIDE LIGHT WILL NOT GO OFF


Simple issue here,there is a micro switch that shuts the light off when you close the door ,it may also open a circuit depending on yuor particular switch that lets the microwave think the door is open.Not hard to fix if you are handy,remove the screws to the sheet metal cover ,locate the switch and make sure that the switch is being made when you close the door.Could just be it is loose,could be the pin that hits this switch is missing,broke or out of adjustment.In any event,do this with no power on ,also these devices can still store power so be careful here .If you are not careful you could get seriously hurt so remove plug and or call someone that has some electrical experience this is totally at your own risk.

My MH3185XP microwave oven will not turn on. Power is to unit. I changed the fuse inside key pad (clear fuse) but still no luck. Suggestion?


In these models, there are several fuses and two or three thermal cutouts / thermostats which need to be checked.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden 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 your mini-manual, or if you want to look at it before removing the controller, you can download it here (just enter your full model number from the label on your oven).

Accessing some components for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download owner's manuals and installation instructions for several brands (including Amana, Frigidaire, Jenn-Air, Kitchenaid, Litton, Maytag, Roper, Tappan, Thermador and Whirlpool) here.

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

Changed bulbs now the unit is dead


You likely knocked a wire loose on the door interlock switch. Also check seating of all connectors elsewhere in the unit.

I have Whirlpool Microwave oven Model MH6110XEB-0 that has completely loss power. The outlet it is plug itno is still good with power running thru the outlet. I do not have any manuals for the microwave,...


with any luck you have just poped the inline fuse,
if you remove the control board you should be able to see the tube fuse up by the fan motor
if not the whole thing will have to come down to reach it

Have a Whirlpool microwave oven, model MH3185XP. Just stopped wor


In some Whirlpool models, there are more than one fuse, and two or more thermal devices which can interrupt power to the oven.

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.

Whirlpool microwave MH3185XP: cancel button does not work


The symbol next to the Cancel pad means it would also be used to turn the Child Lock feature on and off.

But as it is, you have a failed membrane keypad.

Luckily, on these models you can replace the control panel frame with keypad all as one unit without doing any peel & stick.

Just remove your circuit board and drop it in the new frame.

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.

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

(There are 12 models which start with MH3185XP, so check the tag on your oven for the full model number.)

See reference number 3 on diagram number 3.
