Question about Whirlpool MH6150XMS Microwave Oven

1 Answer

MH6150XMT0 We had a small issue where someone, who will remain nameless (me) turned the microwave on instead of hitting the timer button to start a timer for some food on the stove. There was a metal pan in the microwave with tinfoil which started arching. The pan was one of those long ones and wouldn't turn all the way around in the oven. So it hit the door while it was arching. From what I can tell, it only damaged the inner window film and I've ordered the replacement film. How hard is it to remove the back of the door to replace this? Is just snapped in there? Should I really have a technician come out and do it?

You have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams (and order any other needed parts) by entering your full model number here.

When you peel off the old seal tape, it's best to heat it up with a hair dryer and work slowly so it will all come off in one piece and to minimize the amount of adhesive that has to be solved and scrubbed off.

How do you use the kitchen timer and cook at the same time?


If you have the kitchen timer set for instance for 10 minutes and it is counting down, and then you want to reheat you coffee for 2 minutes. You would hit either time cook or reheat button and enter 2 minutes ten hit start. The microwave will heat your coffee and show the 2 minute countdown for that. When done it will revert back to what is left on the 10 minute kitchen timer without missing a beat on most microwaves.

Hi, Could be a timer issue. Don't hit it anymore you will do more damage to it or even get a shock. Take it to a repairman or someone that has worked on one. Good luck.

Timer counts down. Microwave keeps going


It is a bad door switch, or the keypad control board is the issue.

I have Emerson Microwave #mw8999sv which has the Express Cook option- cooking 1 - 6 minutes. How do I cook for 1 minute 30 seconds, etc.? Thank you.


The owner's manual is here. On page 10 we find:

COOKING IN ONE STAGE
1. Press the POWER button; the Microwave and High
Cook indicators will light and “PL 10” will light in the
display.
2. Press the POWER button different times to set the
desired power; the display will show the percentage
you chose. If selecting power level 70%-10%, the
Low Cook indicator will light instead of the High
Cook indicator.
3. Press number keys to set the desired cooking time.
OPERATION(CONTINUED)
4. Press the START/+30SEC. button to start cooking;
the Microwave and one of the Cook indicators will
blink and the display will countdown the remaining
cooking time in minutes and seconds. It will beep
five times when cooking is completed.

Leaving microwave on pause


Unless the control electronics fail, leaving the oven paused won't hurt anything but it will enable someone unfamiliar with to restart it with nothing in the cavity and this can damage the magnetron. Unless you are just checking the food for progress, I wouldn't recommend leaving it paused and 'armed.'

Oster Nicrowave Model 0TM1101GBS: The timer works, but will not cook, I think it is the Child Lock


If the Child Lock is on, the microwave cannot be programmed.

What does the owner's manual say those flashing icons are?

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount (which are pretty simple problems to fix) or occasionally a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

Removing the control panel on the 1800XL to replace the fuse


Unplug microwave. Remove the two phillips head screws from the top at the very front edge, allowing you to remove the top grill. This will give you access to the one remaining screw holding the control panel in place. Lift panel up a bit and you're in. Note: even an unplugged microwave can hold a nasty electrical charge if the bleeder resister inside the capacitor is bad. Be cautious and don't touch things unnecessarily.
