Question about Maytag Microwave Ovens

Maytag microwave model mmv1153baw light won't shut off and won't start

Initially, the door would not stay closed. My husband opened door and found spring loose. He re-attached and one door will stay closed and we have a new problem. Now the light stays on and the turntable stays turning, but if we put a time and press start, nothing happens. We unplugged the microwave and hoping someone can tell us the part needed to replace and fix.

Hi,

Either the latch in door (spring related) is not in the correct location or you have a door switch issue and its not expensive to fix if you husband is handy. Part number you can use is 28QBP0495 or the factory one 3405-001034 (more expensive). This issue is common and these switches are located inside the control panel on the left side, the switch you seek is the lowest one in the bracket of three. Good Luck and I hope this helps.

First of all, it's under warranty. So I would contact Maytag for a free fix.

See http://maytag.com/support/service_parts.jsp

For an out of warranty reply:

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

SOURCE: Sharp Carousel Microwave door latch stopped working door won't stay closed

Normally the problem is not the spring, but a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.

If it's the door panel, it's usually easier and cheaper to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.

The door latch head (hook) is easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.

We have *critical* safety & disassembly info at our site, linked here: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

We also have this full service manual at our site: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/R1480_R1481_R1482_sm.pdf

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

SOURCE: GE Spacesaver microwave always runs when the door is shut

I see this all the time. In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. or a fault that is shutting the system down for safety reasons You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man. Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

SOURCE: I have a F6 error

F6 on these models means that the cook relay on the control circuit board is shorted, and it is cooking anytime the door is closed.

We regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid with a one-year guarantee.

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 prefer, you can buy a new circuit board (part number 8169733 for $150.27) from the Pros
here.

They're our favorite supplier.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Fan & Light stays on???


On a few new model microwave ovens, this is a "feature"! It's purpose is to cool the microwave parts down, and to remind you that your food is cooked. Once you open the door, the fan will shut off and stay off when you close the door again. But if not, or if you microwave oven didn't use to do this, then you have a bad door switch.

Samsung model smh7178std, shut the door and the fan and lights come on automatically, if i lift up on the door the fan shuts off but light stays on.


some switches are normally closed "short position" press switch "open" it will be labeled NC on the one side, "stands for normally closed" and others will be NO "stands for normally open" press switch "short" if there is no change in readings when you press switch it is defective.

GE microwave won't turn off


Just checked the GE website. Had the same problem with my 5 year old microwave. GE website says to close and open the door quickly three times. First time I did this it didn't work. Second time I closed the door with some significant force and reopened it more quickly. Worked. Unplugged the microwave, plugged it back in, still fine.

Maytag Over the Range Microwave


Assuming the entire power line from the breaker to the microwave cord is okay, it's almost certainly a bad connection on the circuit board of the control panel assembly. For reference, we repair these from all over the country for $32.50 postpaid.
