Check the 20 amp Fuse first. You can replace it or test with an ohm meter.

To get to the fuse remove microwave from cabinet. Then remove the back cover by undoing the 4 star screws.

If the fuse keeps blowing or it is fine then replace the capacitor:

If you not practice doing appliance repairs call a technician. IF you DIY always observe all safety rules, and cut down power during operations.

Serial number 112Km00462. If overheated and power goes off .....is it safe to use when power comes back on?


The magnetron thermal protector probably shut the oven down. Magnetrons don't like it when their load impedance is too low (empty oven or popcorn) and they get quite warm. Operating an oven empty also shortens the life of the magnetron.

Maytag Microwave oven Model No. MMV4205AAB, will not heat, everything else works


In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. or a fault that is shutting the system down for safety reasons You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man. Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

My Maytag microwave is working fine except it is not heating. We actually got it to work yesterday, but it stopped heating after about 10 tries. Help! Do we need to replace it?

Maytag Microwave Oven (MMV4205AAW) won't power on.


You will need to replace the 20 amp. ceramic fuse inside the unit. This is real easy and the fuse only cost around $10.00 You will find a break down of your unit at www.partselect.com just enter your model number and a break down will come up. Your part number is PS2052772. You can also locate where the part goes. 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.

You can find your nearest Maytag-authorized servicer here.
