Question about Maytag MMV5000 Microwave Oven
I was boiling water in the microwave to clean it once the condensation was on the walls, top, etc. I must have overheated the water because the water exploded flying the door open. Now the whole microwave is out. Nothing on the control panel, inside light is off... I tried resetting the circuit breakers a few times, but nothing.
Did I completely break the microwave from boiling water???
thank you! Pat in VA
Yes there is a fuse most likely a ceramic not a glass type. How long did you heat the water for? I have seen magnetron tubes which produce the microwaves to heat the item go bad and cause the case of the microwave to get very hot. This is unsafe and could start a fire, you can look inside the microwave and remove the mica or plastic cover which covers the wave guide and look for burnt paint. If you see any sighs of burning junk the microwave oven, or have the unit repaired.

Wow, from the looks of it you need to unplug wait 60 seconds plug in to restart, ot buy a new microwave. Perhaps if in the microwave terms it didn't say not to do that call the manufacturer and the will replace it for free
