Maytag MMV5165BA Over The Range Microwave

After cooking several minutes, the unit shuts down entirely (microwave, hood, light and display) and it takes about 30 Minutes to come back on. For example we cooked two microwave dinners. The first dinner cooked fine, but the unit shut down just as the second was finishing. Is this an electrical circuit overheating (voltage drop in circuit is from about 122 to 113 volts when running)or a magnetron problem? Thanks Ole

We had this problem. It was installed improperly - to recirculate instead of to vent.

It's cutting out as a whole, which signifies the power is cutting out to it - probably a safety feature. Check your warranty on the unit and have it replaced, either way - I wouldn't feel safe using it. A microwave I once used did the same, and it eventually blew up with a cataclysmic bang.

I have a maytag micro/hood combo that stopped working the other day when it was used. We thought the timer was set for 18 min, however the microwave was actually cooking the entire 18 min. The unit worked...


Try a hard rest of the electronics to restore unit to factory defaults. If that does not do it your logic board has failed and if not too expensive you might want to replace it. Check it out at site Search Over 2 1 Million Appliance Parts

Maytag microwave suddenly stopped working, overheated, nothing was cooking.


It is more than likely the magnetron is fried, to replace fuse! unplug microwave oven, remove top, "several screws" look to the right to the keypad control board, look down to a printed circuit board, clipped fuse should be near by, pop it out and replace with same current rating, assemble before testing, "lethal voltages present"

Maytag microwave overheated and shut off - Model #MMV5165BA


That is not good, the magnetron has gone, or the thermal fuse has failed, "protects the magnetron from overheating" There is a possibility the keypad control board was a affected.

I have a Maytag microwave, model# MMV5165BA and it has no heat.Everything displays and vent works but no heat.Can you suggest anything before I toss it out?


If it operates as normal but items don't seem to get hot it probably is a Magnatron failure (microwave producer). More times than not the repair / replacement of a Magnatron these days is not worth the investment, especially if the microwave is 4 years old or older ! You should be able to replace your microwave with a similar featured microwave / hood for about $300 to $400. You might try a JVM1750DMWW by GE great micro/hood for about $300, includes one touch sensor cook capabilities,300 CFM vent fan,removable rack,option to turn the turntable on or off, 1000 watts of cooking power. Good luck !

Microwave shuts down after cooking three or four minutes


Your magnetron is overheating and tripping the thermostat, which interrupts power until it cools.

Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

Samsung MU3250W Shut down


It could have been steam or humidity.

If this is an over the range model, be sure you always use the hood vent exhaust fan when you're cooking on the stove top.

Whether it's a counter top or over the range top, always be aware that the cooling fan is running when it's cooking.

When in doubt feel for air flow through the vents.

Good luck.

It is possible that the magnatron is bad but hard to say on a no heat problem without checking all components. A lot of model give 5-7 yr warranty on that part.

Sounds like a problem with a temperature sensor or humidity sensor.

Maytag Over the Range Microwave


Assuming the entire power line from the breaker to the microwave cord is okay, it's almost certainly a bad connection on the circuit board of the control panel assembly. For reference, we repair these from all over the country for $32.50 postpaid.
