Question about Maytag 2.0 Cu. Ft. Over-the-Range Microwave

1 Answer

Light on microwave is not working

When I turned on the light on our Maytag over the range microwave the bulb blew. I purchased a new 40w bulb and replaced it. The light will not come on. Not sure what else to look at. I tried two bulbs, thinking the new one may have been bad, but still not light.

    model MMV4205BA

    The vent works, but I just tried to use the microwave it is only making a humming noise and doing nothing else.

    I've had my mmv4205ba for just over a year (of course it goes out just as the full warranty expires), and I've got a very similar problem.

    The internal light works; the "range light" does not. The vent still works, but if you try to cook anything it just hums, and the turn-table is motionless. I've been afraid to let it "try" to cook for more than 5-6 seconds because I don't want to damage any additional components.

    I'm currently in the process of dis-assembling and testing the various components. I found a schematic tucked in the control panel.... will report back if I come up with an answer!

Need to replace both might lights under microwave.

Remove the screw from the lens cover and open lens. Turn light bulb counter clockwise and remove. Repeat this on other side. The bulbs or 40W appliance bulbs. Take the old one with you to hardware store to match it up. Reverse your steps to put new ones in.

The range-top light blew and now replacement bulbs

My Whirlpool/Roper microwave/hood combo has the same problem. I replaced the bulb twice, checked the bulb and it works, but not in the microwave. I wrote to Whirlpool asking about the problem. Haven't heard from them yet.

Our Maytag MVP V was operating when something sounding like a circuit blowing blew out the 40W over-stove lightbulbs. Replacing the bulbs didn't help and my wife says the microwave now makes an odd sound...

Hi Jim9000 I am Kelly and I just started doing this on-line Jan 2010. Today I happened across your (GADS!) 15 Oct 2009 microwave post. I am assuming by now you have had it serviced but if not reply here and we will go from there. Thanks.

The turn table and fan are connected in series with the bulb,as you have mentioned that you have replaced bulb,so please check again for any loose contact on bulb holder or bulb continuity again.

Light socket is dead on my Maytag

Yes, this is caused by not disconnecting the microwave from the power line when removing or installing a bulb or by the filaments shorting when the bulb blows. This is a problem with the control panel assembly, which we repair nationwide for $39.95. If you or a friend decide to send it to us, we have *critical* safety and disassembly info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa:
