Question about Maytag MMV5186A Microwave Oven
Okay, that's a Maytag MVP series model CMV1000ADW. Thanks.
Your membrane keypad has failed, and in this case, it's a pretty simple thing for the average do-it-yourselfer to fix.
You can order the control panel frame with keypad (part # AP4060316) for $65.76 plus shipping here.
You can also find helpful exploded views at that link.
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.
Then you disconnect the keypad strip from the circuit board, as shown in the photo below.
Next, move your circuit board to the new control panel frame, reconnect everything, and you're done.
If you would like to have us do this repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

I have the same microwave, and after 10 years in my new home some of the buttons on the panel suddenly stopped working. After finding this site I took the advice and purchased the new panel and membrane from the link provided on this page. With help from this page, along with the instructional video that was provided, I was easily able to replace the part. Saved me the cost of a new microwave and having to have somebody install it since I'm disabled. The cheapest brand-name overhead microwaves run around $150, plus $100 for installation, vs. $70 or so to replace this part myself.
I'm on crutches, and I ran into a couple small problems that slowed me down, so it took me quite a bit longer than it should have. All told it took me about an hour of futzing around, but I'd say the average person can easily replace this part in 30 minutes, and a professional can probably do it in under 10.
Toughest part, aside from battling the first two screws that wanted to strip, was removing the metal frame thing which is on the underside of the panel, underneath the circuit board pictured above. There were no instructions on how to remove this piece, and I couldn't figure out how to unclip it from the panel. Wound up bending the metal away from all the clips at once, and then it slid up and out. The metal is flexible so it didn't hurt anything, and I couldn't see any other way to release it. Maybe there's some other trick I'm unaware of.
In short, replacing the panel is an easy, do-it-yourself job for anybody that can use a screwdriver and unplug a few wires (4 total). Don't be afraid to tackle this yourself if your membrane or any of the parts on this front panel need to be replaced, it's a no-brainer.

When you hold a button in you are bypassing the safety controls Marian. Microwave energy can be deadly so you are taking a chance here. I recommend you consider replacing the oven as the new ovens are cheap and have great features. Service on these units cost more than a new unit.
