Assuming your power outlet is putting out the proper voltage (about 110-125VAC) then I would suspect a bad magnetron.

You should have at least a year warranty, so I would contact Maytag (see your owner's manual) for a free repair.

My Corelle plate (round) is wedged in my round Rival stoneware crockpot - have tried everything I can think of to unstick it - soap, oil, hot water, cold water -- only the tip of a thin knife fits between...


suggestion to try, depending on how far the plate is down in the stoneware, try filling the Crockpot with warm water. Then plug in the Crockpot and turn it on to a medium heat. Then keep close watch on it, as the stoneware warms up it may expand enough to release the plate.

I am getting power and the freezer appears to be working but the fridge is not cold at all, any suggestions? Many thanks Dave McRae


Hi Dave and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly,

Take a look in the back of the freezer compartment. Look for any signs of icing on the back access cover. Usually but not always the evaporator coils freeze up because the unit is not automatically defrosting properly or there is a problem with the evaporator fan not running fast enough / at all. Press gently with your hand of the back cover of the freezer compartment and feel for ice. Also check the front of the chassis for signs of being HOT. It is ok to be warm not hot.
Also check to see that the light goes on and off as you actuate the light switch plunger. Some units have the door switch in the top of the door hinge but most have the switch in the door fold area of the chassis some where.

If you find that the evaporator coils have iced up:
  • Perform a manual defrost of the unit but first unplugging it
  • Remove the freezer contents
  • Direct an external fan into the freezer compartment for just over 2 hrs. (makes a water mess)
  • After 2 hrs clean up the water mess and return the unit to normal service.
  • Watch after 3 days if the fresh food compartment once again starts warming up. If it does you have and automatic defrosting problem.
No ice noted:
  • Possible temp control problem (Thermostat / cold control or thermistor)
  • Possible Air Damper problem. There are 2 kinds of air dampers. One is electrically controlled and the other is nothing but a mechanical baffle that is positioned partially open. If you have the electrical type the air damper motor may have failed or the movable baffle is stuck.
Front of chassis is almost HOT to the touch vs warm:
  • Open the back of the unit by removing the black fiberboard cover and inspect for lint and that the condenser fan is running anytime the compressor is running.
Light always on:
  • Door switch failure. Some door switches also control the evaporator fan along with water in door and ice in door functions. The water and ice in door should NOT work with the door open.
The above is pretty much an in home repair techicians check list for the symptom you describe.
If you discover that you have an automatic defrosting problem I will need you MAKE & MODEL number via your next response here so I can tell you what you can do to troubleshoot. (
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

My daughter just moved into a townhouse and the microwave plate warms, however the plate doesn't rotate. Is there any easy way of fixing this issue


The rotating table in a microwave shouldn't be getting warm unless something is sitting on it and transferring heat to it. The chamber should not be left empty when the microwave is running. The motor that drives the table is of very low mechanical power but should be able to handle about any load it must. I suggest you remove the glass table, the ring on which it rides, put a cup of water in the chamber and turn it on. Look at the drive spindle that engages with the table when installed. If it isn't rotating 9should be easy to see) then the motor is defective which is highly unusual to see one fail. If the spindle is clearly not moving, then I recommend replacing the whole unit since while the part isn't expensive, the labor cost would likely make the repair uneconomical.

Fan works, but unit does not heat.


if the cost of the diode isn't prohibitive to you(normally max $15.00) and you like the oven, but when replacing get a diode with a higher break-down/operating voltage as this may be a problem,get one thats rated for 12,000volts or higher or even a commercial grade diode

JVM1540DN1WW leaves food cold


Put in one cup of water at 2 1/2 minutes on high -- it should boil.

The fan slowing down is normal becaue the magnetron, which does the heating and, which pulls about 10 amps, will drop the voltage across the fan and slow it down.

What type of circuit was your old microwave using? Was it a circuit dedicated to the microwave?

My micro wave will not warm items up


You have not given much information, but it appears the Magnetron element (the heating device) in your oven has failed. Repairs are not cost effective my friend. New units are low priced and have many new features. Consider this.

What is the time for a 8oz cup of beverage to heat?


Depends on the power of the oven and to what temperature you are trying to heat it.

My rule of thumb is that a cup of water should boil in 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 minutes for microwaves rated at 1200 watts and 700 watts respectively.

Does this answer it?

Usually you must purchase the warranty within some specified time of the purchase, such as one week.

But your best bet is to contact the dealer where you purchased the unit. If they are able, they will be eager to sell you an extended warranty.
