No display on LCD panel on my whirlpool microwave

There is no digital display on my LCD panel on my whirlpool microwave. The model is mh1160xsb. All of the other functions work on the microwave works. The display and the buttons under the dispay panel is the only thing not working. Is there a fuse just for the dispaly only.
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I do not know what procedure you used to replace the door, but if the buttons and display were working fine before you replaced the door then it seems that there is a plug not plugged into the control display panel. Other than that the low voltage power supply may not be providing the needed voltage for the display and only for the logic circuits which are a different voltage. With the microwave unplugged, take the cover off and look at all the connectors and make sure that they are plugged into something and none that are not plugged in. They should all go somewhere. To answer your original question, there is only one main fuse to the microwave. The circuitry in the control panel operates on low voltages +/- 5 volts or +/-12v so that part is not fused. What I recommend also is to go back mentally through the procedure you used to replace the door and that may give you a clue as to what you unplugged, although you should not have to unplug anything.

The control display on my microwave is very dim. Is there any way to make it brighter?


If you had mentioned your full model number, we could have looked whether the VFD is available as a separate part in case your model has a VFD display, or whether the whole control board would have to be replaced.

If your model has an LCD type display, it may be weak LEDs or other failing components in the display backlight circuit.

We regularly repair microwave displays for $39.95 nationwide.

It's pretty rare for a microwave to have a display brightness feature.

Let us know if we can help you further.

Microwave model number mh1160xsb. It will only turn on for 15 seconds at a time what could be wrong with it


There is a thermal fuse that sometimes becomes defective or the magnetron is getting to hot causing a shut down, exhaust fan may not be running which cools the magnetron, should be checked.

We had a power surge and now the microwave does not work, model number MH1160XSB-0 whirlpool, what could be the problem? We put a fuse in and it kept blowing.


Model MX6110XB. Nothing worked. LCD panel was dead. Unplugged and replugged; and everything works.

This fix described for the GE Spacemaker. They say problem result of a power surge. Apparently applies to different manufacturers; or does GE make Whirlpools?

Whirlpool mh1160xsb over range that buzzes when cooking


It depends on if it is just a loose component that needs tightened up or if it has started failing. it will require some investigation and trial and error to resolve. I have had some success in resolving vibrations and some were real challenges. It is a matter of isolating the noise maker and seeing what can be done.

Whirlpool GH7155XHS microwave shows partial display


The display is defective and requires replacement. Unfortunately, the display is probably incorporated as a unit with the control panel and must be purchased as an entire service part. This will cost $80-$120 depending on the oven make & model. It will cost more if you have a repairer install the part.

It may be more cost effective to replace the oven. Microwave ovens are rather inexpensive these days.

The microwave does not work.


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.

Let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

You may have a failed keypad or control board.

We repair these for customers nationwide with our guaranteed $39.95 service.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
