Buy a new one. Microwaves have enough stored voltage/amperage to boil your blood. You should not be taking off the cover.

The microwave heats up fine but the blower motor does not come on right away. After a couple of minutes you can hear the motor start - stop and at the end finally works fine.

rheire could be a number of reasons for this problem i would start by checking the connections to the blower motor may just be loose connectors that dont make a good conection until heated up then check for power to the motor when unit is opperating if none it will be in the control panel if power is present replace motor.

Our Microwave (JEM25GY/WY) finishes its program, shuts off and beeps; when I open the door to take out the food, the fan starts up again and doesn't stop until I close the door. Serious? Can it be...

Yes! this should be checked right away to make sure the magnetron is not running with the fan when the door is open , it may be a problem with one of the door switches going bad, left unchecked it probably blow the fuse in the microwave killing all power, but it is quite repairable. But please do not use until it has been checked out by a professional for safety reasons.

Maytag MMV4205BAS stopped dead in the middle of a heating cycle. Unplugged and plugged back in. Oven is on the same fuse and it's fine. Any ideas?

There are several possible causes for a dead oven. Since yours quit in the middle of heating, I'd say it's most likely failure of the magnetron tube which supplies the microwaves. There's a safety thermostat on the tube which opens up and shuts off power if the tube overheats. Overheating is one sign of a tube that's gone bad.

There's really nothing user-serviceable in a microwave oven. Because of hazardous voltages inside and the possibility of microwave leakage, service should be left to professionals. Take the oven to a service shop for an estimate.

We have a frigidaire microwave and in the middle of cooking, the motor stopped. The clock and cook time continued to work, but no heat. We've tried using at half power, on defrost, etc. but nothing seems...

What you are saying the microwave stop work like heating,but but the clock counts down.If it is stop heating then there is a rest on or near the magtrogron.Once it cools down it start back heating.Open and close the door will reset power to the magtrogen{sorry about the spelling].Look for loose connector,or replace the click zon it should have a small red buttom on it.

No Power to Microwave, nothing works...

I had a Sears microwave once that about once a year a fuse inside would blow causing no power to get to microwave. I removd the housing and saw a tubular fuse which resembles a older automotive fuse,
about an inch in length with metal ends and ceramic middle. Sears recommended to buy their replacements however I just bought a multi pack from Radio Shack for much cheaper and whenever it quit working I would replace the fuse and plug it back in and it would work just like new.

Whirlpool(GH7145XF2-0) does not work occasionally

That's how it would sound if you were cooking on a power level less than full power.

If you enter the cooking time and hit Start, it should cook at full power by default and not cycle like you describe.

If you are using some sensor cook setting or automatic type cooking setting, it may cycle like that normally.

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

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

If you don't have your manual, you can download it free here. Check the lower right area to enter your model. number.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
