Question about Maytag Appliances Over-the-Range Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Maytag microwave just died.

We purchased this 4/28/08, first the stove venting did not work properly, there was little if any "draw" up and through the filter, instead any steam rolled over and up the front of the microwave.(maytag was no help).

The latest issue was while warming a cup of coffee, pushed the "start" button and microwave died, no power anywhere. (House fuses,circuits good, used a known good outlet)

Any idea`s?

Model Number: MMV1153BAB

    We have been fighting Maytag since last spring, I filed complaints with FTC and the Wis. dept. of justice yesterday.

    Maytag has nobody local who will repair this under warranty because we purchased it at a home center (vs appliance store).

Take it back to the store and make them do something about them. If they dont then file a complaint with the BBB no reason for you to have to deal with this when it is there problem. It sounds like there is a venting issue and more going on

I purchased this microwave a few years ago but not until I bought a new stove did I notice that the exhaust fan does not draw the moisture up the chimney. The fan works, but nothing is being drawn up.


Jean, there's little information in your query, so I'll have to guess...

Many "microwave hood" combinations can be used as "recirculating" or as actual exhaust. It sounds like yours is set to recirculate. I don't know what make/model you have, but you might look in the documentation that came with it for how to switch it over.

Installing a microwave / convection oven above a stovetop


Needs to be properly vented to outside the house. Only install a microwave that's designed for over-stove use in this space.

The exhaust system never has worked. Will not pull any air from the cooking stove under micro as it was supposed to.


Check the cabinet over the top of the microwave, the unit should be vented to the outside of your home, if not it was a venting model and just never connected to the vents.

Is there a piece I can install on the bottom of my over-the-range microwave that will help keep the front of the microwave from being covered in steam when cooking on my stovetop?


Every over the range microwave has a vent on it that should be venting that steam. I don't know of anything you could put under there that would solve your problem as that is where then vents are and they would be blocked. It sounds to me as though your steam is not being vented properly, and this could also happen if the steam is being vented back into the room instead of outside as many OTR microwaves allow you to do. Its a little bit of work to vent it outside but I myself did that with my microwave and have never had a steam accumulation problem.

Tappan TMV151FS over range microwave starts to work and then dies


Never run the microwave without a load (something to heat)!!! That kills the microwave generating parts.

Sounds like a 'thermal' protect switch is activating after running. Make sure that (if the unit is mounted in a cabinet) that there is sufficient space around the unit for proper air flow and that nothing is blocking the vents. Try setting it on a counter top and heat something. If it works properly and doesn't shut off, the venting space is the problem. You may have to have the cabinet that it sits in redesigned for more clearance.

My maytag over the oven microwave just died;


most likely the power supply in the microwave is gone. the microwave die probably it is over the oven. heat from the stove cause the microwave to heat up and cold off more than it is on the counter.
counter microwave has fan and air slot in the rear. it keep the motor and microwave cool, and there nothing else to keep it hot. but the over the oven, the only ventalation is from the top. and with the added heat from the stove top and oven.

MMV1153BAW - Exhaust Fan


You or the installer should refer to both the installation instructions and owner's manual to be sure the venting is correct, the filters are not clogged, and the outside exhaust is not blocked, such as by an animal nest.

Proper cooktop ventilation is very important to keep the microwave cool and keep steam and grease out of the controls.
