My Whirlpool microwave model MH6130XEB-1 made a pop noise and now will no longer heat food. Everything else works fine, clock, timer, fan, turn table, etc. Is this a fuse problem?


It can be the fuse supplying the magnetron, or the magnetron itself which has failed. Another suspect is the high voltage capacitor in this circuit.


Don't try to fix this yourself as the internals of a microwave are dangerous, with high voltages even when unplugged.

Microwave stops working after 2-4 minutes


either the circulation fan that cools the magnatron is bad,or the magnatron is bad itself.

Microwave has power, but nothing works.


The door switches are more than likely the problem, one or two will need to be replaced, I recommend a professional.

Have g e over range microwave jvm231bv001 1995 year made. worked fine but in middle of cooking it just made a odd sound and completely stopped...no fan, light or any power...please advise possible...


Yes! there is a main fuse, it is located under the keypad and in towards where the high voltage capacitor is "silver and rectangular in shape" but make sure oven is unplugged and high voltage capacitor is dis-charged because there are dangerous high voltages in that area. But I think you have a secondary problem in the oven, there might be a defective door switch or possibly the high voltage capacitor has shorted.

Hi there, everything seems to be working fine -- lights turn on, fan works, buttons all work, clock working, timer working, etc. -- but the microwave won't heat anything. any recs?


Generally, there are one of three failures.
Blown fuse in the Magnetron circuit.

The main capacitor failed (Required to power the magnetron)
The Magnetron itself has failed.
My local appliance repair guy helped figure out my last microwave failures. Once was the fuse the other was the capacitor.
The fuse was a couple bucks, the capacitor was $25 or so.
Generally, if you are not familiar with repairing a microwave, it is best to take it to a repair shop to be evaluated/repaired as it is real easy to get shocked working on one.

Does not cook - time counts down extremely fast


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.

Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.
and please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you.

After changing a blown oven light, the clock works but nothing else turns on, including the fan, light, microwave


This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.
