Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Whirlpool Microwave Hood combination Model MH6150XM turned itself on without anyone touching it. The oven and the fan went on. It continued to operate when the microwave door was opened. We unplugged electrical cord to stop it. When we plugged it in later, problem was gone and microwave functioned properly. This happened once before about 6 months previously. Both times, I happened to be cooking on stove burner below microwave, but that is a common occurance. I relate it only because I want to give complete details of incident. There was nothing in the microwave and it turned itself on without anyone touching the control panel.

Direct spraying of cleaners on the keypad and steam from the cooktop can short the keypad.

Luckily, it dried out. Sometimes it doesn't, and the keypad has to be replaced.

I always recommend that you spray non-ammonia cleaner on a soft cloth (not a paper towel which can scratch) and gently wipe the keypad.

And I always recommend that you use the vent fan when cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls.

If you got it hot enough from your soup there is a fan switch to turn the blower on to cool the unit. Maybe next time cook that on a different burner on the stove to try to not heat up that area under the microwave.

Sounds like the pads that you push on the touch panel are stuck, will probably have to replace the whole touch panel. On units installed over the oven, they typically plug into an outlet in the cabinet above the microwave. if not, try flipping your circuit breakers until you find the one that shuts off the Microwave.

After changing a blown oven light, the clock works but nothing else turns on, including the fan, light, microwave


This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.
