Test this and fix it. God bless you

  1. Light bulbIf your microwave light bulb is not working, perhaps it has blown. The first step is to replace the bulb and power on the microwave. If this does not correct the issue, the next step is to check the socket and wiring to verify if that is the problem.
  2. Light bulb socket & main control boardIf your microwave light bulb is not working after the installation of a new bulb, check the light socket as well as the wiring to ensure they are properly operating. If these sources are functioning properly, the next step is to check for a faulty control board as a possible root cause to your microwave light bulb malfunction.

I have a microwave and it wont come on or ne thing. i have checked a few things and it wont even turn on


Does the light come on inside when you open the door? Could be a microswitch. My microwave has 4 separate switches to sense the door open. One goes bad, it won't start.

Why wont my mocrowave run?


If the light on the control panel and the light inside are on when door is open the unit is probably dead, however if no lights anywhere on the unit you could have a tripped breaker in your house or a bad wall receptacle.

With the full model number, chances are we could have helped you more.
If the cooktop lights recently failed, it may need circuit board repair.

Or it may be a failed hood TCO.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

Hi I have a new Kenmore microwave model 721.8503 - it is a month old and wont turn on.. I close the door and the light stays on and it wont work..the door is completely shut


It sounds like the light switch isn't being deactivated which is preventing the microwave from operating (a failsafe).
Look to see that the buttons inside the microwave (where the latches are inserted when you close the door) are actually being pressed.
They may be out of place, obstructed, or your latches on the door may be damaged.
If you don't see anything wrong, try pressing the buttons yourself (with a pen bottom) to see if the light goes off.

Changed bulb in whirlpool microwave model mh1150xm know it wont work, i have clock and can set timer and cooking power but when i hit start it wont come on


We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so.

At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

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.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too, as well as other functions.

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

MY MICROWAVE WONT START BUTTONS WORK BUT WONT


the problem with microwaves is there like light bulds,,, fine for years then the just pop off, whatever it is there is very little you yourself can do with it bar check the plug fuse,, if thats ok dont even think of opening it up to have a look inside, you are very likley to just kill yourself
inside that microwave is a big capacitor that holds 1000, of volts and they can and do kill if you tuch the wrong bits of them,
have you ever seen a stun gun work? well that capacitor is its very big brother, only it wont just stun, it will kill you out right...is it worth the risk??? no! so drop it in the shop for repair or better still bump it and get a new one,, and up grade it as well,
