Question about Roper MHE14XKB Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Microwave oven not working

I have a roper mhe14xkb-1 above the range microwave oven which is installed in a cabinet. i was heating up some frozen waffles (per the directions) and the packaging around the waffles caught on fire. i turned the unit off and opened the door and put out the fire. i cleaned up the smoke residue and found that none of the plastic liner was burned. the problem is that now nothing works on the microwave. the breaker is set and had never tripped. does this unit have some type of "one time" thermal fuse or limit that may be open? i am a long-time hvac mechanic, but have little experience with this type of appliance.
please help. i am trying to fix this for my parents, who are on a fixed income. thank for any useful responses. jeffreyd.

That model number looks a bit off. I'd say it's one of these:

MHE14XMB1
MHE14XMD1
MHE14XMQ1

But for a part like this, any of the above should be the same.

There are two oven cavity thermostats in this model, which essentially act as flame sensors.

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.

If you don't find yours, or if you want to look at it without disassembling the oven, you can download it here. (Try searching without suffix if you get no hits).

Accessing some components (especially the oven cavity thermostat) for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall and take off the outer cover.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download Roper / Whirlpool owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

Check the Main fuse inside the oven.And check the cause why it trip.

Microwave roper model# MHE14ZKBO worked fine, but now puts out no heat, although everything else works o,k,


It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT

This is a job for a professional but if you are safety clued up, here's instruction.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 or moving coil meter on high resistance range for short circuit, (DVM's won't show the fault!), the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

Roper above the range


We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid.

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.

Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
