Check contacts to control board first.

If control board is OK then test the high voltage capacitor,the rectifier diode.or the magnetron. If all this are fine, test the control board.

Thediode and capacitors can br tested. The capacitor must bealloweddischarge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, evenifpower is off. Capacitors can get discharged by shorting theirtwocontacts.
Before replacing the magnetron test also the control board.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.



All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.

Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.

Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts.

Incorrectly adjusted door catch. They have movement on them to allow a tight seal due to the microwave capability.

Whirlpool Velos GH7208XR Convection works fine but microwave says door open and will not work on microwave. could it be door latch but then why does convection work?


I'd check the primary and secondary door switches for proper operation. Could be a failed switch, or adjustment issue on the switch assembly or door latching mechanism.

You also might have a failed thermal protector on the magnetron.

I have a that microwave gh7208xrs that shows a error code F7 HVSMPS feedback


The controller is not getting the high voltage switched-mode power supply feedback signal.

Sometimes this is due to a defect on the HVSMPS (inverter) or a bad connection from the HVSMPS to the controller.

Due to the voltages involved, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person attempt to troubleshoot an inverter.

In the event that you or someone you know wants to look into it, see these safety warnings first.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

It tells you this:

F7 Power to magnetron interrupted
1. Unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.
2. After 40 seconds, check to see whether this solves the problem.
3. Unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.
4. Check cooling fan operation
5. Check the magnetron.
6. Check P65 connection on the relay control board.
7. Check the P56/P66 connection between relay board and relay control
board.
8. Check wiring to the 1200W inverter and control system. See "Checking
Inverters."
9. Check operation of all interlock switches.
10. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
11. Plug in microwave oven or reconnect power.
12. Check voltage at 4903-1 on relay board. If it is 120, unplug microwave
oven or disconnect power.
13. Replace inverter.
14. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
15. Plug in microwave oven or reconnect power.
16. If problem persists, unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.
17. Replace relay control board.
18. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
19. Plug in microwave oven or reconnect power.
20. If problem persists, unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.
21. Check for reversed plug connection on controls or loose wiring.
22. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
23. Plug in microwave oven or reconnect power.

I'd suspect 6 through 8 first.

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

If it's still dead, since it's under warranty I would contact Whirlpool customer service for a free fix.

Humming sound when off


I also have the same microwave model and with the same problem. It is not quite 2 years old. I have a service call scheduled but did e-mail customer service at Whirlpool to inform them of this. Sounds like it could be defective model and a fire hazard. You should also inform them of yours.

Velos doesn't microwave


If you've had it for less than a year, it would still be under warranty and Whirlpool will fix it free.
