Question about Maytag MMV1153A Microwave Oven

1 Answer

My Maytag MMV1153BA Over The Range Micro suddenly lost power.

It's not a breaker or outlet. Other appliances work in the same outlet. It just went dead. We just bought the home with the appliances in it. It's only about 2 to 3 years old.

1 Answer

Microwave has no power when plunged in


1) Plug the microwave into the outlet if the microwave won't power up. Make sure the plugs on the microwave match the type of outlet. A four-pronged outlet can only be used with a four-pronged plug. Same with three-pronged outlets---they only work with three-pronged plugs.
2) Inspect the plug. Make sure it hasn't been cut or tampered with. Four-pronged plugs can't be cut down to fit a three-pronged outlet. Three-pronged plugs mustn't be forced into four-pronged outlets. A three-pronged plug mustn't be used in a two-pronged outlet, either.
3) Replace blown fuses, or if there's a circuit breaker, check it for tripped breakers. Sometimes the trip won't be obvious, so cycle the circuit breakers. Turn them all the way off and then back on again.
4) Plug another appliance in the outlet. You will find this easier with three-pronged appliances. Simply plug a toaster, or other appliance into the microwave's outlet, and see if it works. If it works, you know the problem is with the microwave, not the power circuit. Have the microwave serviced or replace it. If the toaster or other appliance doesn't turn on, you know the problem is with the circuit.

I have an over the stove microwave. It was working and then went out. I changed the 20amp fuse and still nothing. there is power to it from the outlet. the clock and all the buttons do not work. model...


Dead appliance, power on wall outlet.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!

Attempt this only if you are competent.

If your appliance has absolutely no functions at all, remove it from the mains supply, remove the case and see where the mains lead goes in to the appliance and follow the cable until you find the main fuse.
ONLY USE THE SAME TYPE AND RATING OF FUSE TO REPLACE IT.
The usual cause of this fuse failure is the door switches are contaminated or sticking. Check the door switches before putting power back on to the appliance.
Hope this helps.

Microwave just lost all power in the middle of heating up. no display, no lights, nothing. I have power to the outlet and no breaker tripped


as the unit was running at the time it stopped the fault is simple your microwave has blown its fuse. the question is why? in some cases the fuse simply fails to hold in this case i would replace the fuse and be on my way. or the microwave has suddenly formed a crossed circuit. the fastest and cheapest way to test this is the way most techs do it but its dangerous.!! so you decide weather to do it or have it seen to by a tech. take the back of the unit the master fuse will be at the back just were the power cord runs in replace the white fuse (ceramic) with the same volt and value as the one in it put the back on (for safety) plug it in and try cooking with it if it goes great if not its a big fault and in the bin it goes.

best of luck to you

please take the time to rank my advice thank you.

Blowing main breaker


I have a hard time believing that the home's main breaker is tripping instead of the branch circuit breaker that feeds the microwave. I suspect it is really just a difference in terms. You should disconnect it and try using in another outlet - preferably one on a different circuit if possible. If the breaker continues to trip; this appliance should be disconnected and either be discarded, repaired or replaced before using again.

If the microwave works as expected (on a different circuit), it may indicate the original circuit is overloaded. Microwave overs are supposed to be installed on a dedicated circuit. This means only one outlet is on the circuit - no other loads (lights, appliances, etc.) are permitted on this circuit. A microwave typically requires 10 Amps or more when on "high" and will require a significant portion of the power supplied by a 15 or 20 amp circuit breaker. There is little unused to power much of anything else. If other appliances go out when the microwave trips the circuit breaker, you should contact an electrician to have a dedicated outlet installed for the microwave.

I hope this helps!

Maytag microwave suddenly died after 20 seconds of use - lost all power. Outlet is good. Anyone else experienced this? My cup of tea looks sooo sad - like my wallet... Appreciate your time and...


Replacr the internal fuse you will find when you remove the cabinet. It will be near where the cord enters the cabinet. It is a special fuse ... get a replacement at most hardware of appliance parts stores.

Maytag Over The Range Microwave #MMV4184AAW//No Power


no Mdicker, there is no safety thing that it would not run if there is a bulb missing or not installed.
i'm guessing that there is a fuse inside that went out when the bulb broke.
