It's very easy to do if you can get the circuit board. Take the two screws out of the plastic fan grill and pop it off. There should be one screw above the control panel. Take that off and the panel should pop off by slightly pushing up. Unhook all the wires and unscrew the board. Put the new board in and your done.

The control board needs replacing. The cost is usually 75 dollars and up just for the board. You can order it from your neighbourhood appliance parts store. Just give them: Manufacturer, Model, Serial no's.
Changing the board can take about an hour. It is an easilly replacable module.
Hi Adam, Built in over the range? The models change so rapidly unless it is less than a year old there probably wont be an identical replacement, Fortunately the mounting brackets remain close if you stay in the same brand. Whirlpools can be purchased at almost any retailer like Lowe's, Sears, BestBuy etc. Measure the the original and look for one that fits that dimension. Eric
I do not know how to specifically replace the "inverter board" in this model. On most microwaves I've repaired, though, the hardest part is getting them dismounted from the wall if they are rangehood models. I suspect that the inverter board is held onto the chassis with two phillips screws, and all the connections thereto are modular and therefore easily disconnectable and swapped out. The great majority of times, manuafactureres do NOT put multiple connectors of the same pin count and oriention on a circuit board. Give it a go.
In this case I would most suspect the magnetron (or a bad connection at the magnetron) or a problem on the control panel.
But generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:
- bad door switches or door switch mounts - loose connection at the magnetron - problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board - bad magnetron or other high voltage part (such as a shorted diode)
