    Normally the problem is either the 20A fuse, the 15A fuse or a thermal fuse / thermal cutout (T.O.D.).

    Please reply back with your full model number from the tag on the unit so we can help you.

    It should be one of these:

    RMC275PDB1
    RMC275PDB2
    RMC275PDB4
    RMC275PDQ1
    RMC275PDQ2
    RMC275PDQ4
    RMC275PVB00
    RMC275PVQ00
    RMC275PVS00
    RMC275PVT00

    RMC305PDB1
    RMC305PDB2
    RMC305PDB4
    RMC305PDQ1
    RMC305PDQ2
    RMC305PDQ4
    RMC305PDZ1

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Microwave auto-starts when door is closed

You probably have a failing door switch or the mount which holds your door switch is loose or broken. In most designs, it is the upper door switch that will produce these very symptoms when it is intermittent or its mount is broken or loose. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure. Slamming the door, damage during shipping or transportation and sloppy manufacturing techniques or materials are the primary causes of trouble with the door switch mounts. I have a text file called "doorsw.txt" which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems, and a file called "safety.txt" which is of vital importance. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety and disassembly info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

SOURCE: Microwave Door Switch Problem?

That model number has too many digits after the JVM. Could it be JVM1339BW02 or JVM1339BW002?

If one is bad, it's probably the bottom switch, whose wiring goes back to the power relay, thermostat, or fuse, depending on eact model.

The switch with thin wires going to a ltitle connector on the board is the door sense switch. That's not likely your culprit.

I usually recommend you replace them all while you're at it.

It sounds like it may actually be a loose or misaligned door or door switch mount.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

GE models have a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel. Handy in troubleshooting.

SOURCE: Have a Whirlpool RMC275PD microwave. Light bulb

If you see no removable panel inside the cavity, it will be necessary to remove the housing to replace the bulb. Because of the nature of microwave energy, the fewer sharp edges and other irregularities in the cavity, the happier the magnetron is since all those have some effect on the distribution of the energy and efficiency of the unit. That's why one should avoid having any larger metallic container in a microwave. Using aluminum foil to prevent the drying out of certain types of foods is permissible because the ratio between moisture content of the food and the reflection of energy caused by the foil is not significant and the energy is mostly absorbed instead of reflected.

Door error message on microwave whirlpool Gold rmc275pd


This indicates the door is not latching. The simplest fix is if it really isn't closed, and simply pressing on the door does the trick. Not so lucky? Latch mechanism itself may be dirty and not latching. Try cleaning it with standard spray kitchen cleaners and a good scrub, followed by a toweldry. Still no good? There's often an electronic interlock-- a place outside the latch, perhaps along the face of door, which must contact the body of the microwave oven. Again, try cleaning all possible contact areas. No? OK: microwaves are designed not to run without a tight seal to prevent emissions. perhaps the seal itself is damaged. Finally, and most unhappily, and expensively, the electronics module in the combo unit is shot. If the appliance is under warranty you're in like flynn; if it's relatively new but not under warranty, call the Whirlpool service 800 number and very politely but firmly remind them that this is really quite a new unit and certainly their products aren't meant to fail so soon... and surely they have a service bulletin because this can't have just happened to you... This will usually result in (oh happy day!) a free service call or (more common) a deal to sell the part at half price. Better than nothing!

"DOOR" sign shows on the microwave control panel


either you have a fuse in the cavity blown or you have a failure in micro switches, this is the only way this comes up

Won't run because of constant error message saying "DOOR" .. I ear the latch door close fine.


It depends on the model number, but with some Whirlpools the door switch circuit is complicated and has a couple of fuses that can blow, resulting in a door error message.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If you don't find yours, or if you want to look at it without disassembling the oven, you can download it here.

I'd also recommend this file on door switches.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

I have a Whirlpool gold accubake microwave / oven combo model number GMC305PDS07. The microwave will not turn on and will display "DOOR". I think it is thinking that the door is open?. Please help.


Press and hold the DELAY START TIME button for +5 secs and a chime will sound. The option to toggle between SND HI and SND LO will come up, pressing Delay Start Time will change it between these options.

No programming tone


On page 11 of the manual:

Disabling the timer reminder tones:

To disable the reminder tones, press and
hold the Timer Set pad for 5 seconds. To
enable the tones, follow the same step.

To shut off all (audible) signals except for error tones and the hidden function signal:

Press and hold the Stop Time pad for5 seconds. A short tone will sound to tell you the signals have been changed. Repeat the above step to turn the signals back on.

If that doesn't work, the next 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.

Microwave won't start: Model rmc275pd


If you're saying that the inside light won't come on when you opoen the door, then you probably have a bad door switch, most likely the upper one. The most common causes are opening the door while it's cooking instead of hitting the STOP pad first, broken switch mounts, and damage to or slamming the door. These switches are locally available at appliance parts companies. I have a helpful text file with critical safety information and info on diagnosing and replacing door switches. You can find it by doing a search on Yahoo.com (not Google) for microwave doorsw.txt I appreciate your rating of this answer.
