SOURCE: Microwave external underside light no longer works

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.

The lights fan can be inoperable or stuck on or no bright, too. Sometimes this will similarly affect the exhaust fan operation, too.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: My microwave does not heat anything. The touchpad, exahustfan, light works. The motor turns on and turn-table works for the number of mins specified but does not warm up the stuff. Please help!

Sounds like the magnetron has failed. This is the component that produces the microwaves that heats the food.

The cost of the magnetron is about 95% of the cost of a microwave oven. Most people don't, for this reason, replace the magnetron, they replace the whole oven which is probably what you will end up doing.

There is a possibility that the circuit that provides power to the magnetron is faulty and you need to take it apart, find the proper electrical leads and test them with a volt meter. To do this you have to remove it from its mounting and take it apart. It is a fairly lengthy process however.

Whirlpool microwave model mh1150xmb


please test this steps and fix it. God bless you

  1. Light bulbIf your microwave light bulb is not working, perhaps it has blown. The first step is to replace the bulb and power on the microwave. If this does not correct the issue, the next step is to check the socket and wiring to verify if that is the problem.
  2. Light bulb socket & main control boardIf your microwave light bulb is not working after the installation of a new bulb, check the light socket as well as the wiring to ensure they are properly operating. If these sources are functioning properly, the next step is to check for a faulty control board as a possible root cause to your microwave light bulb malfunction.

My microwavedoesn't heat is there a fuse that may be blown


No! the fuse is fine, there are three likely causes, magnetron, "heats food" cracked high voltave diode, or a shorted high voltage capacitor.

While changing light bulb, the bulb broke and sparked . This caused the breaker to trip. Since this acurred the Microwave has not worked. no power. I resset the breaker and tested the outlet it has power....


There is a fuse located inside the unit, that has probably blown. This is usually replaced by an appliance repairman - but if you are handy and can remember to kill the power BEFORE attempting replacement, you can save a few bucks.

Whirlpool has made a repair guide or "job aid" for their field service personnel, and it is quite detailed, and includes helpful pictures. Rather than paraphrase it - you can follow the link below and download it yourself. Page 4-6 details fuse access. The link:

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/eb51f29dbe5773c18525726e00793aa7/$FILE/Whpl%20BaseLineMHC.pdf

Copy and paste the text above in your browser's address box to download the job aid. it is _very_ important that you replace the fuse with the exact replacement. Deviating from the type, style, etc. can lead to fire or nuisance fuse failure.

Please rate this reply if it was helpful to you. Good luck!

The range-top light blew and now replacement bulbs


My Whirlpool/Roper microwave/hood combo has the same problem. I replaced the bulb twice, checked the bulb and it works, but not in the microwave. I wrote to Whirlpool asking about the problem. Haven't heard from them yet.
