Re: Whirlpool Microwave Model MH7130XEZ-2

Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:


- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose conneciton on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part


At our site, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information.

Model MH7130xez won't heat. everything else works. the clock, timer and lights. does this model have a fuse?

if unit won't heat, then there is a problem with either the magnetron or the diode. if its the magnetron, the microwave will sound almost normal. if its the diode, it will make a humming sound

Whirlpool microwave model #MH1140XMQ-1. I needed to change the light bulb on the bottom of the microwave that shines on the stove below. I started to turn the light bulb and the bulb seperated from the...

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.

Or if you prefer, you can order a new control circuit board for it here for $140.10 plus shipping. (Just enter the model number as MH1140XMQ-1 without the dash).

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 no bright, too. Sometimes this will similarly affect the exhaust fan operation or inside light, too.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

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

Our Danby DMW162-ORT doesn't heat up food. The digital numbers, inside light, clock and turning tray are all working.The fan is working but no heat. It's also making a whining/grinding sound that wasn't...

Sounds like the magnetron has failed. This is the component that produces the microwaves that heats the food. The cost of the magnetron is about 95% of the cost of a microwave oven. Most people don't, for this reason, replace the magnetron, they replace the whole oven which is probably what you will end up doing. There is a possibility that the circuit that provides power to the magnetron is faulty and you need to take it apart, find the proper electrical leads and test them with a volt meter. To do this you have to remove it from its mounting and take it apart. It is a fairly lengthy process however.

Power out on Whirlpool over-the-stove microwave

Yes, There are fuses inside the keyboard panel. I would have to take a look at the manual for the specific model you have to identify the easiest way to check the fuse.
Before you go that far check above the hood and see if you can locate the plug end of the microwave. Most installations have a dedicated receptacle above the exhaust vent and microwave. It is usually a space too small for good storage so most housewives store small items and cookbooks in this space. It is usually the culprit for a microwave suddenly going out without someone placing metal inside the oven and heating it.
Heating a metal object or operating a microwave for an extended time will usually blow the fuse.

The door part# is 4359542 if you need the part number. If you need to know how to replace the door check up by the upper hinge on the inside of the door should be a plastic piece that you can remove so if you lift the door off of its hinges. You may or may not need to remove the grill above the door to raise the door high enough

Kenmore 665.61629100 Microwave Problem

The 665 prefix on your model number is Whirlpool, but I haven't found the code "d" listed yet.

Can you set the cooking time?

If so, what happens when you press Start?

I'll post back if I find the codes or if you have other info and I can help further.
