SOURCE: Control panel on a whirlpool microwave

SOME ELECTRONIC CONTROLS HAVE A LOCKOUT FEATURE THAT IS ENGAGED AND DISENGEGED BY HOLDING A CERTAIN BUTTON FOR 5 SECONDS. LOOK FOR A LOCK PAD AND HOLD IT FOR 5 SECONDS TILL IT BEEPS.

IF NOT AVAILABLE, THE TOUCH PAD MAY BE UNPLUGGED FROM THE MAIN P.C. BOARD OR MAY BE DEFECTIVE.

ALSO, TRY UNPLUGGING THE MICROWAVE FOR 5 MINUTES
TO RESET THE MICROCOMPUTER, THEN PLUG IT BACK IN AND SEE IF IT WORKS.

AN ELECTRICAL OUTLET NOT WIRED WITH PROPER POLARITY OR NOT GROUNDED CAN AFFECT ELECTRONIC APPLIANCES ALSO.

SOURCE: No display on LCD panel on my whirlpool microwave

I do not know what procedure you used to replace the door, but if the buttons and display were working fine before you replaced the door then it seems that there is a plug not plugged into the control display panel. Other than that the low voltage power supply may not be providing the needed voltage for the display and only for the logic circuits which are a different voltage. With the microwave unplugged, take the cover off and look at all the connectors and make sure that they are plugged into something and none that are not plugged in. They should all go somewhere. To answer your original question, there is only one main fuse to the microwave. The circuitry in the control panel operates on low voltages +/- 5 volts or +/-12v so that part is not fused. What I recommend also is to go back mentally through the procedure you used to replace the door and that may give you a clue as to what you unplugged, although you should not have to unplug anything.

Testimonial: "TomZS - thanks, you were spot on. Four screws in the top on this model. I was able to get at the control panel. Sadly there was no obvious failure."

Our Whirlpool over the range microwave makes a clicking sound for a few seconds then shuts the microwave off. The microwave is unusable. The sound seems to be coming from the control panel.


If the cooling fan is not working, that would explain the shutdown problem. The function of the fan is to cool the magnetron down when it is warming or cooking the food, if the fan fails to run, the thermal fuse will detect heat rise causing a shutdown with in 5 seconds or more, the clicking suggest fan issues. I would recommend a whirlpool technician to go through the system.

No power


It could be a fuse or the control panel. You should be able to take off the top plastic grill with two screws and then you should be able to get the whole control panel off. You should be able to see a fuse in there(probably black). You can get the fuse anywhere and it's cheap. Control panel... not so cheap.

What would cause the touch panel display screen on our model gh6177xpb3 microwave to not function - the panel lights up - the lower controls seem to function properly - Thank-you in advance for your...


It may be a glitch that can be corrected by a hard reset. Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

It may have gotten moisture, contamination, or grease inside, which can happen if one cooks on the stove top without having the microwave's hood vent fan on.

It may simply need repair.

We repair microwave control units and touch panels / touch screens for customers nationwide with our guaranteed $39.95 service.

Whirlpool Gold Microwave turntable will not function


Does yours have a feature which allows you to turn off the turntable with the control panel?

If not, you can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven. You may have to cut the cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

Interior fan and light


Hidden behind the control panel is a mini-manual with schematic and wiring diagram. If I could see a scan of that, I could tell you for sure.

But since it cooks, on most recent Whirlpool models, this would have to be a bad connection on the circuit board. We repair these circuit boards for $39.95 nationwide.

Whirlpool RMC275PD microwave won't start


I would first suggest unplugging the oven for a few minutes to give it a reset. On Whirlpool brand microwaves, you will hear a series of beeps when you hit START if one of the following is true: - the control panel is not programmed correctly - the door is not shut - there is a problem with the door latch system - there is a problem with the control panel If you do not have your owner's manual, you can download it here: http://www.whirlpool.com/custserv/literature_search_results.jsp?searchTerm=RMC275PD#literror It doesn't sound like the control panel is locked. When the control panel lock is activated, you will see "Loc" and a lock symbol in the display and only the clock, timer, and oven light will operate. If that does not solve the problem, then you have oneof the other problems as listed above. If you need further help, please reply / add a comment here.
