Unless there is moisture or grease on the control circuit board, it's likely failing membrane keypad.

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

GH7155XHS Microwave control panel


If you do not want to get the newer model due to configuration changes it does not appear that you have another alternative other than to replace the logic board on unit. And unless you can spot a very obvious issue with the board, there is no way for you to fix it especially if it is a bad ic with beaucoup connections to the board.

It is making different kind of noise and won't generate heat.


Most often with MW's the Magnetron fails that as well as the high Voltage Diode. MW's are NOT to be trifled with they are lethal to service and MUST be done by an experienced professional.
The best thing to do is contact Whirlpool, and ask for a referral to an authorised service center, make contact here and when face to face first only ask for a "Quote" as to costings and go from there.

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

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 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.
