    The
    first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a
    minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.




    If that doesn't work,
    leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes. Then let us know if the hard
    reset does not fix it.

    And please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you.

Cannot unlock the display panel


Elise,

So I'm understanding that the lock icon stays on no matter what you have tried. I would try pressing and holding the START/STOP button for 5-10 seconds to see if it changes. I don't know how long you've been leaving it unplugged for when you do unplug it, but i would suggest at least 3-5 minutes. If these don't work what I would do is either contact the manufacturer or maybe even a local authorized technician. This way they would be able to assist and possibly have some more suggestions or be able to find and solve the issue for you.

-Best regards-

MCD1611W New, popping popcorn in glass MW corn popper. 3-4 minutes to pop. After popped I open the door and after a few seconds the MW shuts down completely, no lights, no response to pad pushing.


Popcorn is a low-moisture food which can cause a microwave to overheat, as can a failure of the cooling fan or blocked vents.

You should always turn a paper plate upside-down on the turntable (slightly off-center for better heating) and place the popcorn container on top of that.

The paper plate elevates the popcorn for better exposure to the energy and protects the turntable from excessive heat.

Placing food off-center instead of in the center increases exposure to the energy and prevents the same spot on the turntable from being overheated repeatedly, which leads to material fatigue and cracking.

It's also a good idea to put about 1/2 cup of water in a 1-cup microwave-safe container in the corner of the oven when cooking low-moisture foods like popcorn, bacon, and potatoes.

The microwave's magnetron has a thermal protector (thermostat, TCO, or thermal fuse) attached to it.

If the magnetron gets too hot, it can be damaged or destroyed, so the thermal protector opens and disconnects the power to the whole oven.

If it is a resettable device, the power will be restored when the device cools. If it is not resettable, the device must be replaced.

I recently bought a Whirlpool microwave. I would like to know if there is a manual telling how to use the buttons on the keypad? When the button says "popcorn" I have no idea if I just push...


Here is a link to a the product page for one standard Whirlpool microwave model currently available:

http://www.whirlpool.com/-[MT4155SPQ]-1001410/MT4155SPQ/


And here is a direct link to the User's Manual for that microwave oven (model # MT4155):

http://www.whirlpool.com/digitalassets/MT4155SPS/Use%20and%20Care_EN.pdf


To view the Product Support Page or the Owner's Manual with Operating Instructions just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information at the website indicated and the contents of the Owner's Manual.

You may need ADOBE READER installed on your computer to read PDF documents.
You can download this free at WWW.ADOBE.COM if necessary.
Click on the DOWNLOAD ADOBE READER button on right side of the ADOBE home page when you get there, then follow the onscreen instructions to install the software on your computer.

See page 10 of the manual for detailed instructions on how to use the POPCORN feature in that microwave. Here is an excerp from that section of the manual:


To Use POPCORN:

1. Place popcorn bag on the turntable and close the door.


2. Touch POPCORN once for Regular, or twice for Snack.

Touch START, or wait for the microwave oven to start the

popping cycle automatically.


When the cycle ends, "END" will appear in the display, and

the end-of-cycle tones will sound, followed by reminder

tones.


3. Touch OFF or open the door to clear the display and/or stop
reminder tones.


I hope that was helpful to you, good luck and take care.

Joe.

Microwave doesn't work


Sounds like you have a faulty control panel. I would use a meter and test the power from the control board to the magnetron and circuit board. Chances are the control panel is faulty

It may be that the child lock has been operated accidentally, although if that were the case the POPCORN button should not work.

If the lock is on you should see an L in the display.

If the problem is the safely child lock you have to press and hold the
CLEAR/OFF button for about three seconds.

The first step would be to unplug it for several minutes, then try again.

If that doesn't fix it, you may have a shorted keypad or toruble with the control board.

We repair these nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.
