Microwave Whirlpool JT379 error 2 and won't heat up

After showing "error 2" it appeared to be working (allows programming, rotates) but fails to heat food up, both in the microwave and oven functions. In the stand-by position it claims to be set to other functions, e.g. "6th sense".

Could be the Magnatron, Diode, HV Cap or Transfomer, some also have a high voltage fuse that blow. Unless you really are confident playing with Very High Voltages, and have a meter capable of 5000v, I dont recommend you repair yourself as a microwave will happily electrocute you. Also if the discharge resistor has burnt out on the cap (assuming it was fitted on your model) the capacitor can store enough power to kill you even when the unit is unplugged so you must discharge the cap before playing with anything else to be safe.

HI, check the following to address this issue.


1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in.

2. Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer will not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

4. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).


**The most common issue here will be a defective Thermal fuse

My whirlpool microwave/oven combo is displaying a "DOOR" error message, and the microwave won't work. I have replaced a 20a bus fuse and all 3 door micro switches... It is still displaying the "DOOR"


When microwaves first got popular I used to be a helper with my next door neighbor who fixed them. I does sound like you should have covered it with those switches. If you close the door very slowly, pulling back on the door see if you can hear all 3 switches clicking. You should be able to hear them easily. If you only hear the first 2 try pushing on the door to hear the 3rd. If it will click with pressure on the corners or in the middle then you door is tweaked, possibly from pulling on the door hard to open it or smacking into something on the edge. If you can hear all 3 switches and it still wont start then its going to be the sensor that receives the signal from the switches. I'm not sure how accessible those are on today's models since they make them as disposables now, back then they cost around $500 so they were serviced.

Hi. the other day i was heating up some white choc w a big wodden spoon in the microwave. the sppon got caught and kinda started on fire. it worked fine for the next day but now it won't "turn


If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

In some brands, you have to cut the motor cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.


You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

GH7155XHS Microwave control panel


If you do not want to get the newer model due to configuration changes it does not appear that you have another alternative other than to replace the logic board on unit. And unless you can spot a very obvious issue with the board, there is no way for you to fix it especially if it is a bad ic with beaucoup connections to the board.

MY MICROWAVE IS NOT HEATING


If the microwave is turned on and you can hear the fan working when you set the time you should make sure of those things:1. You have selected the proper programme. Some microwaves have a control desiged to use the programs on the buttons. if you want to you the buttons to set time you should select "microwave" or a similar button and then press the power level like "1", "2" or "80", "100" (being percentage) and then press the buttons for timing.2. If you have used it for a while and it suddenly stopped heating the food, than it could be that your magnetron (a spare part) has burned out. Have a specialist replace it, or just get a new microwave, the price difference won't be that great for standard issue microwaves.

It is making different kind of noise and won't generate heat.


Most often with MW's the Magnetron fails that as well as the high Voltage Diode. MW's are NOT to be trifled with they are lethal to service and MUST be done by an experienced professional.
The best thing to do is contact Whirlpool, and ask for a referral to an authorised service center, make contact here and when face to face first only ask for a "Quote" as to costings and go from there.
