Question about Whirlpool MH2155XP Microwave Oven
Whirlpool Microwave # MH2155XPQ My microwave does not heat anything. The touchpad, exahustfan, light works. The motor turns on and turn-table works for the number of mins specified but does not warm up the stuff. Please help!
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.
