Question about Whirlpool MH7155XM Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Unit not getting power

The unit (Whirlpool Model MH2155XP) is not getting any power - circuit breaker is ok and there is power to the outlet. Light won't come on inside unit and range lite and fan will not operate. Is there a fuse somewhere inside the unit that could have blown? The unit is 3 years old.

These machines seem prone to having a bad magnetron. Look for a circuit breaker near the power cord entry point. If tripped, reset and try to heat a cup of water. If it makes a loud buzz and then pops the breaker again, the consensus view is a bad magnetron. This is one repair that is recommended to send out. (~$150). You need to evaluate the probable cost vs a new machine.

Tripping circuit breaker


That unit shows that it takes 15 or 20 AMPS to run. What is the breaker amperage on the circuit where it is plugged in? Is the breaker a GFCI? You can tell by looking for the two buttons on the circuit breaker or the outlet.

Does the rf375pxdw whirlpool range have a fuse or reset button? burners and oven does not work. there is power from the 220 plug into the range and the clock operates but not the 220. I checked circuit...


No reset buttons or fuses. Find the circuit breakers for the unit, it should be a double breaker with at least 40 Amp rating. Push it to the off position HARD (make sure not to pull the breaker out of the panel doing that). Turn it back on. Check voltage in the range power outlet. It should measure 220-250 Volts between the right and left connectors, and 110-125 Volts between the center and each side connectors. If not - problem is in the wiring or breaker. If you get those voltages and the range is still not working - problem is in the range itself. Check for shorted and loose wires.

My microwave just quit workin. It has absolutely no power.


Make sure breaker isnt tripped. If breaker isnt tripped just for the sake of knowing plug a fan or something you know that works in the outlet. If it works, you have probably blown fuses in the microwave you'll have to take microwave apart to get to them.

Microwave won't turn on. Seems like it is not getting power. I checked breaker. I am looking for a fuse. You know where one is? It is a GE Spacemaker(2 yrs old) model # JVM1440WH04


  • Make sure that the microwave is plugged into a grounded outlet. It must be a 3-prong outlet.
  • Make sure the clock is set.
  • Check to see if a programming sequence was entered. Sometimes improper programming or a program sequence such as delay start can cause the touch panel to be non-responsive. Unplug microwave or turn off house circuit breaker for 30 seconds. Plug back in, or reset circuit breaker, and try reprogramming unit.
  • Check the house circuit breaker or fuse box. If the microwave is DEAD and there is no display and nothing works- the problem could be a blown fuse or tripped breaker.
