Question about Whirlpool GH5176XPS Microwave Oven
The microwave will start but it does not make the usual "humming or microwave" sound, it is silent and it does not heat things up as it should. It heats up a little but not to boilinjg point.
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.
