No the control does not come off from behind.

what you will find is the top vent grill has to come off first. it has 2 phillips screws that hold it to the top of your unit.
you will find 4 screws on the top, go ahead and take all 4 out and then pull the grill out from the top and hinge outward to remove/ once the grill is off, then there is 1 more phillips screw that holds the control board/ touch panel to the frame. remove and then lift up then out on the panel.
now that you are into the unit, make sure you have UNPLUGGED it first. the fuse is about 1 1/4 inch long white ceramic material with metal ends. you can find a new one at a radio shack or get one online for your unit. r/s has them for cheap and if that allows the unit to run again, great, but...
there was something that caused the fuse to go bad. so dont be surprised if you need a diode or capacitor to fix why the fuse went bad.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Though the keypanel would appear to be installed from the front, the locking screws are at its back, inside the unit. Normally, the top/side cover has to be removed to gain access to the inside.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Then carefully (since the display is made of glass) move your circuit board to the new frame, and reassembly is the reverse of disassembly.

Whirlpool gh4155xp gold does not work when plugged in to outlet. nothing is working. want to know if there is a fuse i can replace to get it to work


I'd test the outlet with a toaster or hair dryer first.

There will be a 20A fuse and two or three cavity thermostats.

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.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Accessing the thermostats for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download Whirlpool owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

I have power to the outlet feeding my Whirlpool Gold Model number TRR3811002 but nothing at the unit? are there internal fuses I can check?


Yes, there is a fuse that can trip. It is typically located behind the control panel, it is a ceramic fuse that is 15 or 20 amp.

For some reason I am not pulling up your model number, can you verify that it is correct from the tag just inside the door and I might be able to better direct you to the location.

Thanks!

Whirlpool microwave gh7208xrq totally dead 20amp


In many Whirlpool models, there are several fuse and thermal cutouts (TCOs) / thermostats.

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.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If you don't find yours, or if you want to look at it without disassembling the oven, you can download it here.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

Why did my maytag microwave oven power go out completely?


1 your inline fuse blew
2your magnetron t-stat poped
3 bad voltage from outlet
test the outlet with a lamp, if that works it can only be the other two
open the door, take the screww off the control panel
and the vent cover, two screws on top
behind the control and vent you will see the mag t-stat, it should read continuity, and the inline fuse should be right above it a small glass tube fuse like a car

DOOR ISSUES?


not sure how technically inclined you are and whether you like taking things apart. it's either the door has become slightly warped or the hinge is abit loose or the safety switch needs adjustment. if it's the switch i'm not sure that can be adjusted from outside the machine.

Whirlpool Gold Accuwave wont heat


Hi, there are three issues that will cause a no heat situation in a microwave. these issue are a failed Magnetron, busted cut-off fuse and, failed diode.

I recommend checking all these area that are located inside the microwave for faults.

The most common issue will be a failed Magnetron.

The diode and, fuse will be located on the noise filter assembly.

Outlet works but the microwave is dead, no power at all.


I had a similar problem with my Whirlpool microwave. I replaced a fuse (after reading posts in this forum) and it's working again.  I'm not sure how similar your model is, but in my case it was an in-line fuse in a wire leading down from the main fuse in the upper right corner behind the control panel.
