Question about Whirlpool MH6130XEB/Q Microwave Oven
The fan on my Whirlpool Microwave Model MH6130XEB suddenly came on by itself and will not turn off. We had just cooked something for about 30 minutes just before this occured. I unplugged the unit for 20 minutes and when I plugged it back in, the fan came on again. Is there another way to reset the microwave or is there a larger problem? Thanks, Bruce
If it's the cooling fan inside the main body of the microwave, I would suspect an open thermistor / temperature sensor. If it's the vent fan (for the grille across the top) then I would suspect the hood thermostat is shorted. The oven should have a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) inside, usually in the control panel frame behind the door open button. It shows these parts and how to test them.
