Whirlpool GH7155XHS microwave shows partial display

Hard to read display (bottom half missing) -- think everything else okay. Is this a costly fix and minor issue, or is it time to get a new microwave?

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.

Model gh7155xhs how to find and replace fuse


Hello SHahidbell,

I understand that you need to replace the fuse in you microwave. I have located the fuse for you from partselect.com its cost is $12.27 here is a link to the part http://www.partselect.com/MultiModels.aspx?ModelNum=gh7155xhs&SearchTerm=fuse&RefineSearch=0

1. Unplug the unit
2. Remove the outercasing
3. Locate the fuse holder, this unit only has one
4. Use a pair of pliers to remove the fuse gently not to crack it
5. Install the new fuse
6. Install the outer casing
7. Plug in and try

You do not want to try the unit with the outercasing off. Microwaves give off radiation the outershell helps to reduce this radiation.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

My microwave seems to have overheated and is not shut off. breaker is okay, outlet works


Hi there,

Well Certain models of Whirlpool microwave ovens have a problem with their thermal fuse that causes them to overheat. Whirlpool has a service bulletin out on this problem.

CORRECTION: Install a thermal cut-off repair kit (Part #8205204) to
repair the wire and terminals. Once this is done, a new
rework kit (Part #8184461) must be installed.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Clock and timer on Whirlpool GH7155XHS micro/hood are running slow. Clock loses about 10min/hr and kitchen timer countdown is slow.


I've just fixed a very similar problem with a 10-yr-old NEC microwave oven.

Disconnect AC power, take the top cover off, go through the unit and tighten all screws, particularly those connecting ground wires to the chassis and those fixing major components like the power transformer and magnetron to the chassis.

Microwave will not warm up food


Sounds like the magnetron has failed. This is the component that produces the microwaves that heats the food.

The cost of the magnetron is about 95% of the cost of a microwave oven. Most people don't, for this reason, replace the magnetron, they replace the whole oven which is probably what you will end up doing.

There is a possibility that the circuit that provides power to the magnetron is faulty and you need to take it apart, find the proper electrical leads and test them with a volt meter. To do this you have to remove it from its mounting and take it apart. It is a fairly lengthy process however.

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.

Microwave oven


I'd bet the first three digits of your model are 665? That would make it a Whirlpool.

Either way, the first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.

It may be a problem (such as a missing timing pulse) on the control panel. We repair these.

Microwave dead


First, there is an outlet. Plug in something else. Inside the key panel, there are fuses and a thermo sensor. Either may be bad. The thermosensor is about the diameter of a dime, black and 3/8 inch thick...attached to the wall of the chamber. All should have continuity.
