It could easily be a bad line fuse and/or line filter. To access you will need to unplug the unit and remove the outside case. Inside the unit, where the A/C power cord comes in, there should be a small circuit card (part #237068) located somewhere with a fuse mounted on it. This is your input line filter board with line fuse. Replace the fuse, first and see if this fixes your problem. This is a 20amp appliance fuse that you can purchase at any hardware store. Make sure you place the cover back on the unit BEFORE you plug it in. It is not safe to have this area of the microwave exposed with power applied. High potentials in the 4,000 volt range are present! If the fuse does not correct your problem, the circuit card runs about $26.00. Good luck and hope this fixes your problem.

SOURCE: Microwave is not getting power
may i please ask you if you have a meter? check that 120 volts is going in? check the buttons that you press. also check the fuse check the mains cable for any breaks. also you may want to test the display to see if any power going in?

you may have some arching inside where your magnatron is located.If you open the door on the right middle part there is a silverplate on the wall .If it is burned you may need to replace magnatron.if you do not seee burn marks it may still be the magnatron hope.that would be the only possible thing that would make the noise other then the mtor plate out of place.

as the unit was running at the time it stopped the fault is simple your microwave has blown its fuse. the question is why? in some cases the fuse simply fails to hold in this case i would replace the fuse and be on my way. or the microwave has suddenly formed a crossed circuit. the fastest and cheapest way to test this is the way most techs do it but its dangerous.!! so you decide weather to do it or have it seen to by a tech. take the back of the unit the master fuse will be at the back just were the power cord runs in replace the white fuse (ceramic) with the same volt and value as the one in it put the back on (for safety) plug it in and try cooking with it if it goes great if not its a big fault and in the bin it goes.
best of luck to you
please take the time to rank my advice thank you.

Hi, on the Maytag MW oven, it is possible that one of two things is hapenig:
One would be an erratic door latch switch, that might be cutting the power to the control panel(digital display)and that is why the panel kind of does the power reset, but I am more inclined to a control panel that is starting to loose one of its components, the fact itself that you can set a lower power level for cooking and the oven goes through the cycle normally is a sure indicator that the control panel is involved. Out of the two possibilities the switch is the most economic. Both the switch and the control panel are available from www.partsclinic.com, just type in your model number in the search window, and a full list of available parts and pictures are displayed. I hope this helped and good luck.

(the following is from http://www.kellerstudio.de/repairfaq/sam/micfaq.htm#mictotdo)
The microwave oven may be powered from a GFCI outlet or downstream of one and the GFCI may have tripped. (Removing a broken oven lamp has been known to happen.) The GFCI outlet may not be in an obvious location but first check the countertop outlets. The tripped GFCI could be in the garage or almost anywhere else! Pushing the RESET button may be all that's needed.
Next, try to set the clock. With some ovens the screen will be totally blank following a power outage - there may be nothing wrong with it. Furthermore, some ovens will not allow you perform any cooking related actions until the clock is set to a valid time.
If those are not the problems, then the main fuse is the most likely suspect for a totally dead microwave.
Remember, while you can do some repairs on you microwave, what you don't know can kill you... even on an unplugged microwave, so make sure you understand the dangers and how to reduce them before you try anything inside a microwave. If you want to do more yourself, let me know and I will point you in the direction of some good resources.
