Hi, Look at the home breaker box or fuse box to check for a tripped breaker or blown fuse. If your oven is not heating because there is no power, you may need to replace a fuse or reset a breaker. Also check the power outlet to confirm that the oven is plugged into the outlet securely.
Press the "START/ENTER" button to get the oven to heat after selecting your temperature, if you cannot get it to heat. If you do not press this button within five minutes of setting the temperature, the oven heating cycle will automatically be canceled and the oven control panel will return to displaying the sign.
Calibrate the temperature setting on the oven if it is not heating at a temperature that you like. Do this by holding down the "BAKE" button until the current calibration setting appears, which will be a temperature followed by "CAL." Use the up and down arrow button to increase the temperature and press the "START/ENTER" button once you are done. You can increase in five degree increments up to an additional 35 degrees.
Call the Whirlpool customer interaction center at 800-253-1301 if your troubleshooting fails to fix your heating problem. The customer service representative can give you contact details for a local service technician so that you can have the oven looked at by a professional.
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.
Most likely the circuit breaker tripped or the fuse blew. A 1000 watt microwave is using 2/3 of the power available on a typical household circuit of 1500 watts. If anything else is plugged into that circuit u can have a problem. Just reset the breaker or replace the fuse and u will be up and running. if it happens alot you should consider a dedicated circuit for your microwave only.
does it not light up at all? A microwave has a fuse on it. Probably accessible from the back panel. if not you would need to disassemble it. Most likely cause of this is slamming the door broke one of the safety switches the door has so the microwave knows when the door is open. And it shorted against something when it broke. It might have simply blew the fuse but then again you might have fried it.
