In some Whirlpool models, there are more than one fuse, and two or more thermal devices which can interrupt power to the oven.

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 helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

My MH3185XP microwave oven will not turn on. Power is to unit. I changed the fuse inside key pad (clear fuse) but still no luck. Suggestion?


In these models, there are several fuses and two or three thermal cutouts / thermostats which need to be checked.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden 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 your mini-manual, or if you want to look at it before removing the controller, you can download it here (just enter your full model number from the label on your oven).

Accessing some components 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 owner's manuals and installation instructions for several brands (including Amana, Frigidaire, Jenn-Air, Kitchenaid, Litton, Maytag, Roper, Tappan, Thermador and Whirlpool) here.

My Russell Hobbs microwave will not generate heat


If everything else is normal, the trouble may be a failed magnetron tube (the microwave source), problems on the control circuit board, or parts in the tube power circuit that are bad. It's also possible a door switch can be at fault, but this usually keeps something else (fan, turntable or light, most often) from running as well.

Microwave servicing is best left to professionals. There are potentially deadly voltages present, and a chance of microwave leakage if repairs aren't done correctly. Take the oven to a shop for an estimate, or just consider replacing it if it isn't a built-in, an over the range unit or a high-end countertop model.

I have Whirlpool Microwave oven Model MH6110XEB-0 that has completely loss power. The outlet it is plug itno is still good with power running thru the outlet. I do not have any manuals for the microwave,...


with any luck you have just poped the inline fuse,
if you remove the control board you should be able to see the tube fuse up by the fan motor
if not the whole thing will have to come down to reach it

Whirlpool microwave MH3185XP: cancel button does not work


The symbol next to the Cancel pad means it would also be used to turn the Child Lock feature on and off.

But as it is, you have a failed membrane keypad.

Luckily, on these models you can replace the control panel frame with keypad all as one unit without doing any peel & stick.

Just remove your circuit board and drop it in the new frame.

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.

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

(There are 12 models which start with MH3185XP, so check the tag on your oven for the full model number.)

See reference number 3 on diagram number 3.

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.
